Warning: This post contains major spoilers for "Halloween Kills."
"Halloween Kills" has a plot twist-filled ending where several major characters die.
The movie's ending also re-creates an iconic scene from "Halloween" (1978).
"Halloween Kills" opens with Karen (Judy Greer), Allyson (Andi Matichak), and an injured Laurie (Jamie Lee Curtis) driving away after setting Laurie's home on fire.
They hope the flames will finally kill serial killer Michael Myers (Nick Castle and James Jude Courtney).
Unfortunately for the women, a group of firemen rescues Michael. He then murders the men and goes on a killing spree around Haddonfield on Halloween.
Towards the end of the movie, a mob tries to kill Michael by cornering him on the street.
While their stabs and gunshots injure him and he briefly collapses, Michael bounces back and attacks the mob instead, killing all of them.
Former sheriff Leigh Brackett (Charles Cyphers) is a part of this mob when Michael kills him by slashing his throat.
Leigh's death is especially poignant because 40 years prior, his daughter, Annie (Nancy Kyes), was one of Michael's first victims after the killer escaped from a mental institution.
Leigh had joined the mob earlier in the movie to finally avenge Annie's death. Instead, he ends up as yet another of Michael's victims.
Tommy, who Laurie had been babysitting as a child in "Halloween" (1978) the night Michael attacked Laurie and her friends, is also a part of the mob.
In 1978, Tommy had escaped Michael relatively unscathed but in "Halloween Kills," Michael stabs and kills him.
While Michael is a couple of streets away facing off against the mob, Karen is outside the Myers home when she thinks she's spotted someone standing at the bedroom window upstairs.
The figure appears to be dressed the same way Michael was on Halloween night in 1963 when his parents found him standing outside holding a large knife, right after he stabbed his sister.
When Karen goes up to the room to take a closer look at the window, Michael appears behind her and stabs her - just like he had stabbed his sister in 1963, in the same spot and the same room.
While "Halloween Kills" ends with the shocking deaths of several important characters, there are a few more people who are still alive for the 2022 sequel "Halloween Ends."
Allyson is still presumably alive after medics are seen leading her away from her mother and towards an ambulance shortly before Michael kills Karen.
Laurie is also alive at the hospital and offers a theory for why it's hard to kill Michael: "The more he kills, the more he transcends into something else." By now, Laurie says, he isn't a "mortal man made of flesh and blood."
In the next hospital bed is Deputy Frank Hawkins (Will Patton) who arrested Michael in 1978 but failed to kill him - something he has regretted ever since.
Away from Frank and Laurie, but still somewhere in the hospital, is Lindsey. Annie had been babysitting Lindsey the night the teen was murdered in 1978.
In "Halloween Kills," Lindsey has a very close brush with Michael but ultimately escapes alive. Richards previously told Insider's Jason Guerrasio that even she was surprised her character didn't die in the movie.
