Michael Myers is exposed in a Halloween Ends behind-the-scenes photo with The Shape actor James Jude Courtney and Andi Matichak’s stunt double.
Spoilers for Halloween Ends below!Hollywood’s iconic slasher Michael Myers was recently unmasked in a… Halloween ends picture behind the scenes. The long-running horror franchise began with John Carpenter’s classic, Halloween (1978). For 12 of the 13 films in the Halloween franchise, Myers returned to wreak havoc in the town of Haddonfield, Illinois. In the latest entry of the film series, Halloween endsMyers takes on Final Girl of the same name, Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) one last time.
Four years after the events of Halloween killsIn which Myers survived an ambush by a Haddonfield mob and killed Karen Nelson (Judy Greer), Strode tries to find a solution by describing her decades-long trauma in a memoir. After helping Corey Cunningham (Rohan Campbell) deal with local bullies, the gang takes violent revenge and accidentally sends him on a fateful encounter with Myers. As the killer senses darkness boiling in Corey, the two form a tentative partnership. However, after Corey steals Michael’s mask, the killer tracks down the young man and forcibly gets it back.
Lydia Hand, Andi Matichak’s (Allyson Nelson) stunt double, recently took to social media to share a behind-the-scenes look at Myers being unmasked. The photo shows a touching moment between James Jude Courtney (The Shape/Myers) in full costume and makeup embracing Matichak. View the image above.
Will Michael Myers return?
Although Courtney appears in the photo with a sense of exuberance as he hugs his opponent, this cannot be said for his Halloween ends character who was killed at the end of the film. After being stabbed and bled by Strode and Allyson, Myers is processionally delivered through Haddonfield to a local salvage yard where his body is pulverized in an industrial shredder. There is no way Myers can return within the current continuity, but as the precedence has shown multiple times, the Form will likely kill again in a new Halloween project.
After Myers’ death in Halloween II (1981), the killer was resurrected several times in franchise history. He made his terrifying return to the big screen in Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers in 1988; than for the first legacy sequel/reboot in 1998 Halloween H20: 20 years later; back at Rob Zombie’s Halloween duology; and finally in David Gordon Green’s H40 trilogy. Even though Myers is definitely dead at the end of Halloween endschances are the Shape will stalk Haddonfield one more time.
