As soon as you hear that there will be another "Halloween" movie that will face Jamie Lee Curtis' horror heroine, Laurie Strode, against the iconic villain Michael Myers, you might guess that one of them probably would not be at the end. And the new round does not disappoint, with a burning and action-packed climax.
So, who did it with life? Well, that's a complicated question.
Spoiler alert! We are discussing the plot points that are part of the end of "Halloween", so be careful if you have not seen it yet.
THIS IS YOUR FINAL WARNING. (And it's also a good time for a GIF from the cutest little Michael Myers).
After 40 years of preparation for Michael's return, Laurie finally changed the tables of his enemy from the original 1978 "Halloween" and lured him to his isolated house in the woods. Their daughter, Karen (Judy Greer), and her granddaughter, Allyson (Andi Matichak), hide in a secret basement under the kitchen while Laurie confronts Michael, a fight that runs through the house and ends when Laurie is expelled for second. time. Balcony of the floor.
Here's the thing: the house is actually a deadly trap set for Michael. Michael goes after the other women, ripping the kitchen island off the floor superhumanly to find Karen and Allyson. Karen yells at her mother to help her, but it's a trick: when Michael prepares to enter the bunker, Karen's frightened face gets cold, says "Gotcha" and shoots her in the head.

While Michael is stunned, Laurie (who is totally fine!) Comes out of nowhere to send him flying downstairs so Karen and Allyson can get out quickly, though Allyson has to find a knife and stab Michael when he grabs the leg of his mother so that Karen can far away. Laurie blocks her exit and lights a series of hidden gas taps, and with a final message of "Goodbye, Michael," she throws a flare on him. The bunker, followed by the whole house, burns down and Michael stands still and inexplicably sitting there while the women escape.
"Every time you kill the dragon, it feels incredible, because you've eliminated this obstacle so you can move on with whatever life you can have, at least you have a chance in life," Curtis tells USA TODAY about the end.
"The last shot of the film is of three women who have killed the dragon, and the youngest of them has the knife in his hand, and there is poetry and beauty in that image, and a very satisfying feeling."
But is this really curtains for Michael? "As we've seen before, I can not even say what happens to him," Curtis says. She points out that Laurie thought she had beheaded him in "Halloween: H20" in 1998, but ended up being the wrong guy, and Michael came back (as he usually does) four years later in "Halloween: Resurrection".
There are two key pieces of evidence that Michael is still alive: when the camera returns to the house during the women's flight, he is no longer in the bunker. And like the final credits, there is a heavy breathing, a signal that is also used in the original of the & # 39; 78 which denotes that it has not yet died.
"If it's a hit, you know it will come back," says Nick Castle, who wore the mask on the first "Halloween" and has a cameo like Michael in the new movie. (It is also responsible for the heavy breathing mentioned above). "They will milk this until the last part runs off that poor man."
