Rob Zombie Actors Laurie and Annie Condemn New Film – ‘It Shouldn’t Have Been a ‘Halloween’ Movie’

Halloween Ends is one of the most controversial installments in the horror movie franchise. Critics, audiences and even previous stars explain why he succeeded or totally failed in Laurie Strode and Michael Myers’ supposed final showdown.

David Gordon Green has established an entirely new Halloween timeline from the 2018 installment. The new trilogy ignores all sequels to John Carpenter’s 1978 classic. As a result, Laurie and Michael are no longer siblings. Rather, the trilogy deals with the trauma resulting from the massacre, setting Haddonfield and Laurie on a downward spiral.

After 2021’s Halloween Kills, Green returns for one final episode to wrap Laurie and Michael’s story for good. Halloween Ends follows Corey (Rohan Campbell) when a child he’s babysitting during the spooky holiday accidentally dies in his care. After Michael vanishes without a trace, Haddonfield searches for a new boogeyman to blame, and he’s the perfect target.

Taylor-Compton and Harris talked about all of Halloween Ends on their podcast, Talk Scary To Me. However, they had a fair share of criticism to address, especially since they both had roles in other timelines. of the long-standing franchise. They liked the story itself, but didn’t think it had anything to do with the plot of Halloween Ends.

“It was a really cool story if it was about a new serial killer and what it was like for someone to become a serial killer,” Taylor-Compton said. “But then they kind of threw Michael Myers in there, that’s what it seemed to me.”

Harris responded by asking “Where are the victims? Where’s Michel? What the hell is going on?” Taylor-Compton explained how she didn’t like Michael’s weakened state.

“Michael was so weak,” Taylor-Compton said. “He didn’t show up for 40 minutes, that was so long for a Michael Myers Halloween movie, and the end, for him not showing up and not being as loud as f*** I was mortified when he walked into that tunnel and [Corey] almost beat his ass. I was mortified. I almost couldn’t watch, I was so traumatized by what was happening. An old and weak Michael is not the Michael Myers we deserve. It’s not that. This is not the last Michael Myers [movie]. I felt so bad for James [Jude Courtney]. Like, is this the end of your Michael Myers?

Harris said she actually preferred Corey’s murders to Michael’s, saying his story was all she cared about. “But it shouldn’t have been a Halloween movie.”

Taylor-Compton concluded, “I know how hard it is to make movies. I also don’t want to offend anyone who made the movie. It’s just our opinion. Now I understand when people have opinions about my movies and your movies – I get it.

Critics are divided on the last episode

Taylor-Compton and Harris aren’t the only ones with hard feelings toward Halloween Ends. As of this writing, Rotten Tomatoes’ Critics’ Score sits at 39%, while the Audience Score hovers at 57%. Some reviewers loved that the franchise took some big creative swings and found it to be entirely all-encompassing. However, others felt it was a disappointment as an ending that didn’t fully utilize the return of Jamie Lee Curtis.

Meanwhile, Green and his team are ready to move on to The Exorcist next. They are creating reboot/legacy sequels that will also create a new timeline for the horror franchise. Plus, it’s a planned trilogy that will bring something new to one of the scariest movies of all time.
