Will it go out with a bang…or a whimper?

Horror fans everywhere are impatiently waiting for Halloween Ends to debut next month, and anticipation is especially high for the final scene of this dramatic chapter in the iconic horror film franchise.

And who better to have strong feelings about those last dramatic moments than the man behind the fearsome mask of Michael Myers–James Jude Courtney himself.

The actor recently opened up about that final scene with Total Film Magazine, saying there will be “the requisite violence. But we’re going to a deeper place, spiritually, because we’re culminating 44 years of this experience between Laurie Strode and The Shape.”

And to finally wrap up that experience in one last scene was very emotional for both Courtney and Jamie Lee Curtis. “And that happened when we were beginning to shoot our big, grand finale,” he said. “She and I stepped off to the side to talk through the beats. We just stood there with tears flooding out of our eyes.”

Courtney added that “the entire scene–and everything that happens between us–was so powerful and so erotic and so loving. There’s so much there. This is taking the series–and these characters–to a place they’ve never been before.”

Halloween Ends–landing in theaters and on Peacock Oct. 14–is directed by David Gordon Green from a screenplay be wrote with Danny McBride, Paul Brad Logan and Chris Bernier.

The film follows Strode as she is finishing her memoir while living with her granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak). But, when a young man, Corey Cunningham (Rohan Campbell), is accused of killing a boy he was babysitting, it starts “a cascade of violence and terror that forces Laurie to finally confront the evil she can’t control.”

The movie also stars Will Patton, Kyle Richards, Omar Dorsey, Michael O’Leary and Nick Castle.
