Halloween Ends, said to be the final film in the “Halloween” horror/slasher franchise, will be released for digital purchase on Nov. 15, and on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray Disc and DVD on Dec. 27.
Produced by Malek Akkad, Bill Block, and Jason Blum, the Universal Pictures Home Entertainment release features over 30 minutes of never-before-seen bonus content that includes deleted and extended scenes, featurettes with star Jamie Lee Curtis and the cast and crew, a gag reel, and a feature commentary with co-writer and director David Gordon Green, actors Andi Matichak, and Rohan Campbell.
In the film series’ finale, Laurie Strode (Curtis) faces off for the last time against fabled killer Michael Myers (James Jude Courtney). Michael hasn’t been seen for four years after the events of Halloween Kills. Laurie lives with her granddaughter, Allyson (Matichak), and has chosen to liberate herself from fear and rage and embrace life. When a young man is accused of killing a boy he was babysitting, a cascade of violence and terror is ignited with a final confrontation between Laurie and Michael. Only one of them will survive.
