6. Halloween Ends (2022)

Halloween Ends, the latest installment in the iconic horror franchise that began four decades ago, succeeds in its mission to provide a satisfying conclusion to the series and give fans a proper send-off.

The film continued the story from the previous installment, Halloween Kills, and brought the latest installments to a fitting and emotional conclusion. The movie managed to nicely tie up loose ends and provide closure for many of the characters, while also delivering the expected thrills and scares that fans have come to expect from the franchise.

In terms of continuity, Halloween Ends does an excellent job of staying true to the events and characters established in previous films, while also bringing in fresh elements to keep things interesting. It honors the legacy of the original film and its sequels, while also updating the story and characters for a modern audience.

The film’s ability to provide a satisfying conclusion to the franchise is perhaps its greatest accomplishment as fans were pretty much in agreement in their praise of the film’s final act. It gave fans the closure they have been waiting for, while also paying tribute to the many beloved characters and moments from throughout the series. It is a fitting end to a horror legacy that has spanned four decades and has become a cornerstone of the genre. Whether it remains the last time we’ve seen Michael Myers remains to be seen but if this really was the end, the franchise went out on a high note.
