Halloween 4: The Return Of Michael Myers Ending Explained: 'Evil Dies Tonight,' In 1988

This franchise has been through a lot. For all of their talk on doing away with the lore of its sequels, the makers of "Halloween Kills" sure are digging in the crates for inspiration on the follow-up to David Gordon Green's 2018 effort, "Halloween," itself a sequel to John Carpenter's 1978 original. "Halloween" (1978) has since gotten eleven sequels and two retcons in 1998 and 2018, so there's a lot of continuity gumbo happening — it's enough to turn any new "Halloween" fan off from delving int...

David Gordon Green Is Not Worried About The New Hellraiser Movie Competing With His TV Series

There are two different "Hellraiser" projects on the way. There's a new movie from director David Bruckner, and there's also a TV show that will have a pilot episode helmed by "Halloween Kills" director David Gordon Green. Bruckner's film, which will star Jamie Clayton as the new Pinhead, will drop on Hulu, while the "Hellraiser" TV series is headed to HBO, and, by all accounts, both projects are completely separate – they have nothing to do with each other, other than the fact that they're both...

That Original Halloween Character In Halloween Kills Uses Practical Make-Up, Not CGI

There are a lot of nods to "Halloween" films past in "Halloween Kills." And one of the biggest involves recreating moments that are meant to take place in the minutes immediately following the end of John Carpenter's original horror classic. The result: a major character from that first film returns, despite the fact that the actor who plays him has been dead for several years. The immediate assumption from many seeing this character on screen again has been that he was recreated via CGI tricker...

Halloween Kills Spoiler Review: A Messy, Bloody Sequel That Can't Make Up Its Mind

When the reboot/revival/sequel "Halloween" arrived in 2018, trauma was a major talking point. This wasn't just another slasher movie, we were told. This was really a movie about trauma, and how it can reverberate through time. It was also a movie about how Laurie Strode, a traumatized woman who has been living in the shadow of Michael Myers for her entire life, was finally going to take back her own narrative. That's inspiring stuff, and for the most part, "Halloween" delivered. Director David G...
