Why Is Halloween Ends Rated R?

This October, Halloween Ends will make its debut in theatres, marking Jamie Lee Curtis’ last appearance as Laurie Strode in the Halloween film franchise.

To the satisfaction of audiences, the horror subgenre has been on a winning streak for some years now. There have been a number of excellent horror films re-released in theatres as a result of the production of new sequels, with 2018’s Halloween playing a significant role in the development of this trend. In order to complete a new trilogy, filmmaker David Gordon Green created two additional sequels, and the culmination of the entire project will take place in October with the release of Halloween Ends. We are fully aware of the factors that led to the next horror film being classified R.

Rated R for bloody horror violence and gore, language throughout and some sexual references

The Halloween films that are now in theatres are a direct sequel to the film that John Carpenter released in 1978. Jamie Lee Curtis and other original cast members reprised their roles as inhabitants of Haddonfield in these films. The present tale will be wrapped up in Halloween Ends, which will also mark the conclusion of Curtis’ run as Laurie Strode in this incarnation of the character. A short while ago, the forthcoming slasher movie received its official Film Rating from the MPAA, and, as one might expect, it was given a rating of R.

It seems like Halloween Ends will include all of the hallmarks of an R-rated horror film, including a great deal of bloody gore and language consisting primarily of four-letter terms. But who can blame people like Laurie Strode and company for having foul language when they are being pursued by Michael Myers? I can’t help but worry about the individuals to whom the sexual references will be made; for example, will Laurie and Will Patton’s character, Deputy Frank Hawkins, develop into a committed relationship? The future holds the answer, although it doesn’t look like very many characters made it through the events of Halloween Kills.

The violence in the 2018 Halloween movie went up to a 10 for Halloween Kills, despite the fact that there were several genuinely memorable deaths in the film (particularly the scene in which Oscar is impaled by the fence). Throughout the entirety of that horror film, Michael Myers amassed an unfathomably high body count, ultimately taking the lives of almost every member of the cast (including the iconic Judy Greer). As a result of this, it ought to be fascinating to observe how influential the use of violence finally proves to be in David Gordon Green and Danny McBride’s third instalment.

Even while this first look at Halloween Ends is exciting for the generation so of fans out there, the video that was shown was relatively restricted. Andi Matichak’s Allyson was only in it for a few brief seconds, and there was no sign of Kyle Richards, who was conspicuously missing. However, given that the slasher will be coming in time for the holiday in question this fall, marketing efforts should start building up significantly.

The 14th of October is the release date for Halloween Ends in cinemas.
