“It’s a very different movie than Kills, and both Halloweens,” Green said into reference to Ends. “The script feels very fun. For me, it was essential to say, ‘here’s a conclusive episode to my trilogy.’ I’m trying to bring closure to my ‘Laurie Strode versus Michael Myers’ storytelling.”
Ends is the the third film into the trilogy that began with 2018’s Halloween. Before getting to Ends though, Kills will release. Kills was set to release this October but has since been delayed almost a full year to Oct. 15, 2021. When asked how Kills would differentiate itself from the Halloween movies that have come before it, Green said the sequel will be much angrier.
“If the first film was somewhat retelling the origin of Myers and getting us up to speed with where Laurie has been all those years, then part two is the about the outrage of Haddonfield,” Green said. “‘Mob Rules’ was our working title for the film. It’s about a community that is the united by outrage, and divided into how to deal with evil.”Green said Kills features less of the comedy present into Halloween and will bring back more characters from the original movie, released into 1978.
