Halloween Ends Will 'Make People Very Angry,' Jamie Lee Curtis Teases

Just a few weeks away from The Night He Came Home and on the eve of the release of David Gordon Green's "Halloween Kills," star Jamie Curtis is here to give everyone one last scare. "Kills" is Green's second film in the resurrected, Blumhouse-backed "Halloween" franchise, a sequel to "Halloween" (2018). In it, Laurie Strode (Curtis) teams up with two other generations of Strode women to face down and give Michael Myers the sound defeat he's been needing since John Carpenter and Debra Hill originally conjured him to the big screen in 1978.

Halloween Ends Will 'Make People Very Angry,' Jamie Lee Curtis Teases

Just a few weeks away from The Night He Came Home and on the eve of the release of David Gordon Green's "Halloween Kills," star Jamie Curtis is here to give everyone one last scare. "Kills" is Green's second film in the resurrected, Blumhouse-backed "Halloween" franchise, a sequel to "Halloween" (2018). In it, Laurie Strode (Curtis) teams up with two other generations of Strode women to face down and give Michael Myers the sound defeat he's been needing since John Carpenter and Debra Hill originally conjured him to the big screen in 1978.

In Carpenter's o.g. "Halloween" (if you haven't seen that then I don't understand why you're here, please log off and watch the movie), Laurie Strode falls under the masked eye of Michael Myers, a former patient of Smith's Grove Sanitarium (he was a bad boy). He wreaks havoc on the town of Haddonfield, stacking up bodies including Laurie's friends — she was the only survivor along with the children she was babysitting. In Green's 2018 sequel (skipping any other sequels and all lore built in between 1978 and now), Laurie is 40 years older, and she still wants to throw down with the guy. She's out in the woods, shooting, rocking tank tops, setting up snares — she's ready. 

She gets her chance, and Michael burns alive in her basement. Or does he?

"People Are Going To Be Agitated By It."

So, "Halloween Kills" arrives in theaters this week. All along the way, Curtis has been on the hype train for the movie, and that continues for the third and final film in Green's offering of the Michael/Laurie saga. "Halloween Ends" is scheduled for an October 2022 release, and Curtis, in an interview with The Illuminerdi, divulges that next year's finale will have some shock value:

"It's going to make people very angry. It's going to stimulate people. People are going to be agitated by it. And it is a beautiful way to end this trilogy. Now that's all I kind of knew from David. Only recently have he and I started to talk a little bit post-Venice film festival a little bit about the movie, a couple little tweaks that I've offered, but very little that you know, this man makes great movies. I just have to stay out of the way."

With Curtis teasing that the preceding "Halloween Kills" expands from Laurie Strode's story to the town's story and deals with a violent uprising to hunt the killer down, it tracks that the third and last film of the trilogy would close the book with a bang. Curtis, for her part, is ready to conclude her journey with Strode. 

"Halloween Ends" is expected to arrive in theaters in October of 2022.

M. Night Shyamalan's Next Feature, Knock At The Cabin, Will Be Released In 2023

The previously untitled M. Night Shyamalan film for Universal Pictures has been given both a title and an official release date according to an exclusive report from Deadline. "Knock at the Cabin" will be Shyamalan's 15th feature and will be released in theaters on Friday, February 3, 2023. This date is a move from its original plan of February 17, 2023, which would have put the film up against Disney's "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania." Nothing has been revealed yet regarding the plot, but it's safe to assume this will be another thriller as part of his continued relationship with Universal Pictures.

"Knock at the Cabin" will be the fifth film between Shyamalan and Universal after "Old," "Glass," "Split," and "The Visit." This partnership has served as a symbolic resurgence for Shyamalan's career after the critically panned "After Earth," "The Last Airbender," and "The Happening." Many were skeptical before the release of "The Visit," but ever since, Shyamalan has been enjoying a string of hits, no twist ending required.

Shyamalan's History Of Horror

M. Night Shyamalan's directorial debut was an independent drama film called "Praying with Anger," in which he also starred, and was followed up by the family drama "Wide Awake" with Rosie O'Donnell about a young child having a crisis of faith. But where most people tune in to Shyamalan's filmography was with the Academy-award nominated horror drama, "The Sixth Sense." The film's twist ending would become a staple for the early years of Shyamalan's horror career, featured in films like "Signs" and "The Village."

Despite the reputation, Shyamalan isn't just a guy who makes thrillers with twist-endings. He's also responsible for the fantasy film "Lady in the Water," and an entire anti-hero super series known as the Eastrail 177 trilogy between "Unbreakable," "Split," and "Glass." Regardless of opinion, Shyamalan is a known moneymaker at the box office, with his most recent film, "Old," bringing in $90.1 million at the global box office despite the pandemic. 

Comparatively, his return to horror, "The Visit," brought in $98.4 million without any need for lockdowns or avoiding public places.

In addition to "Knock at the Cabin," Shyamalan is producing a thriller through his Blinding Edge Pictures company called "The Vanishings at Caddo Lake" from Celine Held & Logan George ("Topside"). It's about a young girl who mysteriously disappears at the titular lake, only for a series of past deaths and disappearances to all link together following when she goes missing. This is the first film to come from Blinding Edge Pictures that isn't being directed by Shyamalan since 2010's "Devil."
