When it comes to horror icons, few are more enduring than Michael Myers. He's been shot, stabbed, and blown up on multiple occasions over the decades of films in which he appears, but somehow, he keeps coming back. Halloween Ends, the latest film in the slasher franchise, seems to finally put a definitive stamp on the murderous maniac's reign with a climactic showdown between Laurie Strode and Michael Myers. But will Myers actually die this time?
Fans may point out that previous films have managed to explain away what seemed like a certain death for Michael before, but Halloween Ends goes out of its way to make it clear that this is the end. There is no wiggle room in this scenario, no rewind, no alternate timeline, nothing. It's simply a case of Laurie Strode bringing her big brother to justice before he can cause any more harm. This is a dark and grim ending, but it's the right one for the story.
