HALLOWEEN KILLS' Original Ending Has Been Revealed, And It Sounds A LOT Better - SPOILERS
Halloween Kills director David Gordon Green recently revealed that the Blu-ray release of the movie will include an alternate ending, and we now know what this sequence will entail. Spoilers ahead.
Halloween Kills has proved to be a highly divisive instalment in the franchise overall, but the ending, in particular, has come in for a lot of criticism.
Major spoilers ahead.
In the final scene, Karen (Judy Greer) walks back into Michael Myers' old house (for reasons best known to the writers) after seemingly putting the masked maniac down for good along with the residents of Haddonfield. Of course, it takes more than a few bullets and a knife in the neck to put an end to the boogeyman, and he appears behind Karen before brutally stabbing her to death.
The movie concludes with both Myers and Karen's mother, Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis), looking out of their respective windows, but the original ending detailed in the script played out slightly differently.
Karen is still killed, but Laurie then calls her daughter's phone, and Michael picks up. After hearing "The Shape" breathing, Laurie realizes what's happened and tells him, "I'm coming for you, Michael!" Strode then picks up the knife Allison was gripping in the final shot of the last film, and strides down the hospital corridor for a confrontation with her nemesis.
This would have done a much better job of setting up Halloween Ends, although director David Gordon Green has confirmed a 4-year time-jump between movies, so maybe that's why this scene was ultimately dropped.
