The horror movie, Halloween Kills, graced our cinema screens back in October 2021 and since then, there have been a lot of talks about it. The movie didn’t end quite well for some watchers and this is why the Halloween Ends director decided to address this.
David Gordon Green is the director for Halloween Kills and its upcoming sequel, Halloween Ends. In a recent interview with SFX Magazine‘s exclusive Halloween special, he backed his last movie in the franchise. Stating that from the onset, he 100% wanted to make Halloween Kills. The 47-year-old who is also a producer and screenwriter, used the opportunity to share his thoughts on the Halloween Kills reception.
Green is well aware that lots of the franchise’s fans did not like the movie’s ending and even some parts its storyline. There are currently lots of tweets online from netizens concerning how they feel about the movie and some of them did not receive the movie well.
Halloween 2018 was great, I really enjoyed what they did to reinvigorate the franchise.
Halloween Kills was so terrible. Complete nonsense and a waste of a movie that had nothing more than its kill scenes.
Halloween Ends looks … ok? It feels like they’re burying this movie.

Correct me if I’m wrong but Halloween Kills is just 90 minutes of people running around screaming “evil dies tonight!”

Halloween Ends Director On ‘Kills’ Backlash
Director David Gordon Green has now addressed the Halloween Kills issue for those who still feel pissed about it. Green talked about how this movie was not meant to resolve things but to unravel lots of them. From what we have seen, it looks like the resolving part of this franchise is left in the hands of Halloween Ends.
The Halloween Kills movie intentionally left watchers with unlikable unresolved chaos that producers could exploit in the next movie. This isn’t the first time a director is doing something like this. They often poke holes in the storyline of movies so that the next one can broaden it and reveal lots of interesting ideas.
The Halloween Ends director also stated:
“For me, that’s just part of the fun, and then we get to come in and tidy it up with the last one. So any frustration that was expressed about the last one, I kind of just smile and say, ‘Hold tight, here we come’”.
Halloween Kills currently sits at a rating of 5.5% on IMDb and 39% on Rotten Tomatoes, with an audience score of 66% on the latter’s platform.
Halloween Ends Trailer
On October 27, 2022, Universal Pictures released the trailer for Halloween Ends and lots of fans trooped in to watch it. Since its upload, the video now has about 5 million views and over thousands of likes. From the trailer, it seems what the Halloween Ends director said earlier now sits well with fans.
