Blumhouse’s relaunch of the Halloween by John Carpenter in 2018 helped the genre legacy through another era of horror, creating the eventual confirmation of a full trilogy. With the trilogy ending this October with the release of Halloween Ends, it will also become the longest addition to the Halloween continuity, telling a full story (four chapters) from start to finish without any drastic changes to the team.
Now, as Halloween Ends is preparing to wrap up the tales of Blumhouse, the studio’s Jason Blum himself offered more insight into where things could (or, in this case, will go) next. Speaking with Screen Rant, Jason Blum explains: “We no longer have the rights to make any more Halloween movies so yeah, it will be our last as far as we’re concerned, but I never said it would be the end of the entire franchise. Only Malek Akkad (the producer) knows the fate of the saga, it’s up to him to decide ”. Halloween Ends will be released in theaters on October 14, 2022.
There Universal Pictures showed, at this year’s CinemaCon, a first look at Halloween Ends, the next film in the series and the conclusion to the story that began with the revival of the slasher franchise in 2018. Star Jamie Lee Curtis was on hand to talk about the film and present the video, telling the participants: “It will ruin you“. Cam Bonomolo of the ComicBook.com portal watched the video and released the following previews.
