John Carpenter Says ‘Halloween Ends’ Will Be A “Departure”

by Thomas Tuna

When John Carpenter speaks, Halloween fans listen. Even when he doesn’t have much to say.

The legendary director and composer of the original 1978 Halloween (not to mention The Thing and They Live) recently opened up–a tiny bit–about the upcoming final film in the current Halloween trilogy–Halloween Ends. But those few words may have spoken volumes.

Carpenter, during a chat with Syfy Wire, was coy when discussing the much-anticipated finale, simply choosing to say, “Well, it’s Halloween…and it ends.” But, then he added, “You’ll see it’s a departure from the others. It’s interesting. Dave (Gordon Green) is a really good director. I love working with him.”

Since the rumor mill has been working overtime, spitting out various scenarios for Halloween Ends–Does Laurie die? Does she finally kill Michael Myers? Who survives this time?–having Carpenter say the film is a “departure:” from the other installments is revealing in itself. Stay tuned.

Halloween Ends–helmed by Green from a screenplay he wrote with Danny McBride, Paul Brad Logan and Chris Bernier–is set four years after the bloody events of Halloween Kills, as Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) and her granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) will again battle the evil that is Michael Myers (James Jude Courtney).

The R-rated film–scheduled to hit theaters Oct. 14–also stars Will Patton, Kyle Richards, Omar Dorsey and Michael O’Leary.
