Halloween Ends Review
David Gordon Green did something different, and that is something I can admire him for. He went a different route when developing Corey Cunningham as someone who wanted to be like Michael Myers. Almost like an apprentice in this movie. Cunningham “accidentally” killed the child he was babysitting on Halloween night, and the whole town turned against him. Almost like they were trying to latch onto a new killer for Haddonfield because Michael Myers wasn’t present. Gordon Green also tried to reverse the cycle of the child going after the babysitter, which would have worked if the story had gone in a different direction. The bones of the story are there. It’s the execution of it that didn’t quite work. In the beginning, this third film felt like they needed to fill time to stretch out the final standoff between Michael Myers and Laurie Strode. And when that happened in the last fifteen minutes, it didn’t even feel warranted.
