The horror renaissance has been going strong for years, resulting in some of the best horror movies returning to theaters via new sequels. This trend was established partly thanks to the acclaimed release of 2018’s Halloween, which kickstarted a new slasher trilogy. Now Halloween Ends’ Michael Myers actor is teasing the trilogy’s surprising ending.
In David Gordon Green’s Halloween trilogy, the villainous Michael Myers is played by a pair of actors. While James Jude Courtney does the heavy lifting as the villain, OG Michael actor Nick Castle plays him when the character is mask-less. A YouTube video of Castle appearing at the Steel City Con recently arrived online, where he teased the surprising ending for Halloween Ends. In his words,

While Nick Castle was careful not to actually reveal anything about the plot, this comment is sure to turn a few heads. How will Laurie Strode and Michael Myers’ eternal battle ultimately end? We’ll find out this October.
While the cast and crew of Halloween Ends have been keeping their cards close to the chest, it certainly sounds like David Gordon Green and writer Danny McBride have a very specific vision for the mysterious threequel.

And there’s no telling how Laurie and Allyson have coped with The Shape’s massacre that took their family and friends.
During his same appearance at Steel City Con, Nick Castle gave us even more exciting (albeit cryptic) updates about the status of Halloween Ends. He was able to join the editing bay of the highly anticipated slasher, where he got to see David Gordon Green and company at work cobbling the project together. As Castle put it,
As previously mentioned, there’s very little information currently available about the contents of Halloween Ends. This includes both the plot and the movie’s cast, as almost the entire ensemble from Halloween Kills was murdered by Michael Myers throughout its runtime. The exceptions being Laurie and Allyson (played by Jamie Lee Curtis and Andi Matichak) as well as Kyle Richards’ Lindsey Wallace, who was confirmed to be appearing in the mysterious threequel.
Halloween Ends is currently set to arrive in theaters on October 14th. In the meantime, check out the 2022 movie release dates to plan your next movie experience.
