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...

The Origin Of The Ghostface Mask In Scream Is Delightfully Mundane

Horror fans love a masked slasher, but not all masks are created equal. Designing a quality disguise for a masked villain is crucial not only for scaring the bejesus out of the audience, but for the future merchandising possibilities. Michael Myers' modified Captain Kirk mask, Jason Voorhees' hockey mask, Leatherface's patchwork skin mask, and the Silver Shamrock masks have enjoyed generational longevity, as has the horrifying Ghostface mask from "Scream," now celebrating its 25th Anniversary.Th...

Anthony Michael Hall Is Game To Return As Tommy Doyle In Halloween Ends [Exclusive]

Despite its big box office success, "Halloween Kills" seems to be a bit polarizing with fans. Still, if there's one thing I think we can all agree on it's that Anthony Michael Hall does a good job taking over the role of Tommy Doyle. Tommy was a kid being babysat by Laurie Strode in the first "Halloween," where the character was played by young actor Brian Andrews. Tommy returned to the series with "Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers," where Paul Rudd (in his acting debut) played the characte...

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...
