Halloween Ends To Stream on Peacock Same Day As Theatrical Release

at .

Laurie Strode's last stand will play out on Peacock the same day it hits theaters.

Universal Pictures, Miramax, and Blumhouse’s Halloween Ends, the final installment of the most acclaimed, revered horror franchise in film history, will debut as Peacock’s Halloween movie event Friday, October 14, day-and-date of its theatrical release.

The move follows in the footsteps of Halloween Kills, which launched on Peacock and in theaters on the same date in 2021.

Halloween Ends Still

Granted, that move was in response to COVID-19, but the flick went on to generate a decent amount of money at the box office.

It was significantly lower than its predecessor, but it likely helped boost Peacock subscribers.

Laurie Strode Returns

"This is Laurie Strode’s last stand," the logline for Halloween Ends reads.

"After 45 years, the most acclaimed, revered horror franchise in film history reaches its epic, terrifying conclusion as Laurie Strode faces off for the last time against the embodiment of evil, Michael Myers, in a final confrontation unlike any captured on-screen before."

"Only one of them will survive."

Jamie Lee Curtis returns for the last time as Laurie Strode, horror’s first “final girl” and the role that launched Curtis’ career.

Mike Myers Returns

Curtis has portrayed Laurie for more than four decades now, one of the longest actor-character pairings in cinema history.

When the franchise relaunched in 2018, Halloween shattered box office records, becoming the franchise’s highest-grossing chapter and set a new record for the biggest opening weekend for a horror film starring a woman.

Four years after the events of last year’s Halloween Kills, Laurie is living with her granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) and is finishing writing her memoir.

Michael Myers hasn’t been seen since. Laurie, after allowing the specter of Michael to determine and drive her reality for decades, has decided to liberate herself from fear and rage and embrace life.

One Last Halloween

But when a young man, Corey Cunningham (Rohan Campbell; The Hardy Boys, Virgin River), 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 can’t control, once and for all.

Halloween Ends co-stars returning cast Will Patton as Officer Frank Hawkins, Kyle Richards as Lindsey Wallace and James Jude Courtney as The Shape.

rFom the creative team that relaunched the franchise with 2018’s Halloween and Halloween Kills, the film is directed by David Gordon Green from a screenplay by Paul Brad Logan (Manglehorn), Chris Bernier (The Driver series), Danny McBride and David Gordon Green, based on characters created by John Carpenter and Debra Hill. Halloween Ends is produced by Malek Akkad, Jason Blum and Bill Block.

The executive producers are John Carpenter, Jamie Lee Curtis, Danny McBride, David Gordon Green, Ryan Freimann, Ryan Turek, Andrew Golov, Thom Zadra and Christopher H. Warner. Universal Pictures, Miramax and Blumhouse present a Malek Akkad production, in association with Rough House Pictures.
