"The Night He Came Home" is perhaps one of the most chilling taglines you could have on a slasher movie, but now that we're halfway through September, that night is coming, as Halloween Ends (2022) draws frighteningly close. And now, there's a brand new TV spot for the upcoming sequel...
Recently, Jamie Lee Curtis promised fans that Halloween Ends is worth the wait in an Instagram post, and judging by the trailer and the two new TV spots alone, we have good reason to believe her.
If you've yet to see any footage, first of all, check out the official trailer for Halloween Ends below, which promises an epic showdown between Laurie Strode and Michael Myers:
David Gordon Green's Halloween Trilogy ignores every single Halloween movie since John Carpenter's original film Halloween (1978), and is set to wrap things up for this latest timeline (there are many).
Exactly how the filmmakers will conclude this new chapter, though, remains to be seen, and recently, Green admitted that the film's ending keeps changing "every day", so it seems like even they don't know yet.
With that said, producer Jason Blum and original Halloween (1978) director John Carpenter suggested that there would be more Halloween movies beyond this trilogy should the upcoming film be a hit.
But let's not get ahead of ourselves, because now there's a brand-new Halloween Ends TV spot for us to sink our teeth into. You can check it out below, but beware the bogeyman...
The latest TV spot is certainly a lot more chilling than the more frantic trailer we got a few weeks ago. "It's time to put the bogeyman to bed," Laurie Strode says, before we see Michael reenact an iconic kill from the original 1978 classic.
It's plain to see that the marketing for the movie is now being ramped up, especially as it's just four weeks away. We've even been treated (or tricked?) to some creepy Michael Myers images in recent weeks.
There's also another Halloween Ends TV spot you don't want to miss, which you can check out below:
"I've run from you," Laurie says, "I have chased you... But it's your last Halloween, Michael". Will Myers will finally meet his maker in Halloween Ends? Or will he be as invincible as he was in Halloween Kills?
We don't have long to wait, but let's hope that Laurie Strode emerges victorious.

As per Blumhouse Pictures (via Wikipedia), here's the official synopsis for Halloween Ends, the final chapter in David Gordon Green's Halloween Trilogy:
Four years after the events of Halloween Kills, Laurie is living with her granddaughter Allyson after the death of her parents.
Laurie has decided to take all the fear and rage, she has been holding onto for the last 4 decades and write a memoir which is almost completed.
Michael Myers has once again disappeared and hasn't been seen since. This time Laurie has decided to liberate her fear and rage and embrace life with open arms.
All is quiet in Haddonfield, but when a young man, Corey Cunningham, is accused of killing a boy he was babysitting, it ignites a cascade of violence and terror that will force Laurie to finally confront the evil she couldn't control, once and for all.
Halloween Ends stars Jamie Lee Curtis, Will Patton, Andi Matichak, and James Jude Courtney, and Kyle Richards, who will be reprising their roles as Laurie Strode, Frank Hawkins, Allyson Nelson, Michael Myers, and Lindsey Wallace.
Newcomers include Rohan Campbell (Corey Cunningham), Michael O'Leary (Dr. Mathis), while original Michael Myers actor Nick Castle is also expected to reprise his role as the killer (in part), having done so in both previous movies.
The film will be released in theaters on October 14, 2022 by Universal Pictures. And like its predecessor Halloween Kills, it will also dual-release simultaneously in theaters and on the US streaming service Peacock.
