If you remember, the end of Halloween Kills surprised us with the death of Karen Nelson, daughter of the iconic Laurie Strode. Before she died, Karen unleashed a tremendous beating against Michael Myers by the inhabitants of Haddonfield, the neighborhood where she started it all. However, the villain survived and exacted revenge against some of his attackers before killing Karen and disappearing.
Not only did Karen’s passing spark criticism, many also questioned Myers’ near-superhuman stamina. However, the director David GordonGreen He claims to be proud of the decisions made together by the writing team (via):
“For me, psychologically, the whole point of the movie is to unravel things and not solve them. There are a lot of people who, when they see an ending like that, or a lot of unresolved stuff, they get frustrated as a viewer. For me, that’s part of the fun, then we can go in and fix it with the latest (movie). So whatever frustration has been expressed, I just smile and say, ‘Hold on tight, here we go.
In addition to the controversial ending, Halloween Kills was criticized for taking us away from Laurie Strode and keeping her in the hospital for much of the footage. There was no real confrontation with her nemesis and the audience was disappointed by the style of the film. It currently maintains a 39% approval rating in Rotten Tomatoes and raised $130 million dollars worldwide. Both results are well below those obtained by its predecessor. Still, Green is happy with the work she did.
“It’s 100% the movie I wanted to make. I am extremely proud of this kind of madness. It’s funny, because sometimes what people want to see in these movies is very subjective. Some people just want to see the original movie, literally. We are not going to do a remake From that, we have to do something different,” he added.
They think that Halloween: The Final Night manage to recover the good reputation of the franchise and remedy the mistakes of the previous film? The film will hit theaters in Mexico next October 13.
