DO AS I SAY!
His original victim Laurie Strode played by Jamie Lee Curtis has gotten him arrested, had him incarcerated and also fought against him. The cat and mouse chase between the two characters finally come to a close in this film. Curtis expresses her sadness over wrapping up the franchise with this film. She has been a part of the storyline since the original Halloween which came out in 1978.
"The last thing I ever thought I would do is another Halloween movie five years ago," Curtis told PEOPLE (The TV Show!). "And then now I've made three of them. They have been incredibly well-received. People love them. This last movie is very emotional, deeply emotional." Even though she wasn’t a part of the later sequels, she still feels extremely sad and satisfied with the direction of the film. When asked if she cried on set, she said, “Of course! I'm a sobber. I said goodbye to a crew of people who have been so generous to me, who were so warm and loving to me. Because Laurie Strode had the 'S' kicked out of her -- she emotionally had so much going on, this sweet girl -- and they were always there. It was hard to say goodbye to them.”
In the lore of this series, this is the 13th installment, however, there is a discrepancy in the continuity of the films. The first two films which came out in 1978 and 1981 featured Jamie Lee Curtis as one of the protagonists, however, the later films don’t show much of Laurie Strode. While Michael Myers is expected to be the antagonist in all the Halloween films, he is not one in the 1982 sequel of the film called Halloween III: Season of the Witch and doesn’t have any connection to the original films. In 2007, Rob Zombie rebooted the series completely and made a remake of the first film, which audiences didn’t see any continuation of.

In 2018, though, director David Gordon Green made a direct sequel to the original Halloween from 1978 casting Jamie Lee Curtis in the film and reuniting the rivals after four decades of silence. It is this series that is continued in Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends for which the teaser trailer has been released. While this film is expected to give closure, OG creator John Carpenter doesn’t believe in an end, especially for this series.
“Let me explain the movie business to you: if you take a dollar sign and attach it to anything, there will be somebody who wants to do a sequel. It will live. If the dollar sign is not big enough, no matter what, it will not live,” Carpenter joked about what could happen after Halloween Ends. "I don't know, man. I don't know. This time, I do not know. They really want to end. They're going to shut it off, end it. It's what David has in mind. That's fine.”
Check out the (presumable) end of the Halloween series titled Halloween Ends on October 14, 2022, in theatres.
