According to director David Gordon Green, the ‘Halloween Kills’ Blu-ray will include an extended version of the film's ending. Halloween Kills is the latest upcoming release in the Halloween universe, a film that promises to set up next year's ‘Halloween Ends’, the last film in Green's current trilogy. Outside of the Halloween franchise, Green is best known for his directorial work on Pineapple Express, Your Highness, The Sitter, and Joe.
The penultimate film picks up right where 2018's Halloween left off, with Michael Myers escaping Laurie Strode's burning cabin after she trapped him inside and set it ablaze. ‘Halloween Kills’ follows Strode's attempts to rally the residents of Haddonfield to band together and end Myers' reign of terror once and for all. The trailer for Halloween Kills promises a great deal of bloodshed, including the slaughter of many burly firemen, but makes clear that a truly satisfying conclusion won't be had until ‘Halloween Ends’ hits theaters next year.
Green discusses his upcoming Halloween Kills film and the struggles of creating a second-to-last chapter, in particular, getting the ending right. He reveals that when the Blu-ray releases, it will feature an extended cut of the film with an ending that takes things in a slightly different direction. The alternate ending came about because Green didn't totally know where Halloween Ends was going to begin. After figuring out that beginning, however, it became clear that the extended ending wasn't feeling right, and it was axed.
It seems that, for fans looking for the full Halloween experience, the ‘Halloween Kills’ Blu-ray will be a must-have when it does eventually release in the future.
