This confirms a previous statement made by Carpenter, who said Halloween (2018) will only acknowledge his original film and have no connections to any of the sequels. The ‘alternate reality’ comment is intriguing, as is the reference to a changed ending. The original movie’s final shot was of Michael tumbling out of a window, before his body disappears. Will this new sequel provide some substance or extra details to those final moments, or with Laurie’s survival of the incident? With Halloween II being completely erased from continuity, it also provides a clean slate for showing Michael’s motives and abilities, with McBride already having promised that he will not have any supernatural qualities .
