HALLOWEEN ENDS Was Never Going To Be A "Laurie And Michael Movie" According To Director - SPOILERS

For better or worse, Halloween Ends was not the movie fans of the iconic slasher franchise were expecting, and director David Gordon Green has now revealed that it was never going to be...

While it certainly has its defenders, Halloween Ends has arguably proven to be even more divisive than its predecessor, with some feeling short-changed by the decision to shift focus to a new character (Corey Cunningham) rather than concentrate on the final showdown between Laurie Strode and Michael Myers.

To be fair, the movie does deliver that big face-off in its final moments, but the first two acts deal with Corey being "influenced" (it's never really made clear if there's a supernatural explanation) to commit murder by the legendary masked maniac, while embarking on a somewhat unlikely relationship with Laurie's granddaughter, Alyson.

Director David Gordon Green has previously revealed that he did consider several different endings, but now makes it clear that the closing chapter of his trilogy was never just going to be about Myers and Strode putting their decades-long feud to rest.

"We had to decide how we wanted to wrap up these characters," he tells MovieMaker.com. "How do we want to make it not just a nice, neat bow on a franchise? Honestly, we never once considered making a Laurie and Michael movie [Laughs.] The concept that it should be a final showdown-type brawl never even crossed our minds. I wanted to see where it would go. I wanted one to win, one to die. But we were always more ambitious with that. So how did we want to go out? By doing what no one except us would do: make a love story. It’s our version of going out with a bang and opening our hearts to this community and these characters."

Taking a big swing for "The Shape's" last hurrah was admirable, but some would argue that the execution let the idea down. Still, you can't blame Green and his team for at least attempting something different here - even if the movie was marketed as the "final confrontation" between Laurie and her relentless nemesis.
