Jamie Lee Curtis takes another stab (see what I did there?) at her most famous role as Laurie Strode in the 12th(?) sequel to Halloween(1978).
The Production: 2/5
Halloween ENDS(2022) is the final film of the trilogy reboot that began with Halloween(2018), and continued with Halloween Kills(2021). Psychopathic killer Michael Myers (James Jude Courtney) is still on the loose following his renewed attacks on Laurie Strode(Jamie Lee Curtis) and her family.
3D Rating: NA
Halloween ENDS(2022) appears on UHD in its original 2.39:1 aspect ratio. Halloween ENDS in 4K shows a muted color scheme to establish its mood, with solid blacks, good shadow detail and excellent fine detail in the video presentation.
English audio on the 4K disc defaults to Dolby Atmos. The Atmos audio provides some immersive directional audio, and the music score by John Carpenter in collaboration with Cody Carpenter and Daniel A. Davies, adds to the suspenseful tone of the film. Spanish audio is also available in Dolby Digital 7.1 and French audio in Dolby Digital 5.1.
Special Features: 4/5
This package includes a 4K UHD disc and a Blu-ray disc. Special features on the UHD disc include all of the following:
Halloween ENDS promises to be the ending of this film franchise. This promise is certain to be broken, even if this film is a good example of diminishing returns for quality in successive sequels. On the plus side, the video and audio presentation on 4K UHD are exemplary, and there is a wealth of special features, including deleted scenes and a feature-length commentary. Halloween ENDS is essential viewing if you have seen every one of the 12 or so prior entries in the Halloween franchise; if not, your time may be better spent watching one of the earlier, and qualitatively better, films.
