‘Halloween Ends’ 4K UHD Review

Halloween Ends has finally arrived on home video and I’m here to let you know if it’s worth checking out.

While Halloween Ends didn’t exactly blow me away when it came out in theaters, I still felt an obligation to check out the film again when it came out on home video to see if the 4K UHD release made picking up the film worthwhile.

The 4K UHD release of Halloween Ends released on December 27 and is loaded with a variety of special features. While it doesn’t include an extended cut of the film like the release of Halloween Kills did, it does include a selection of deleted and extended scenes that give a better idea of what the filmmakers were going for when they made the film. Seeing the crew explain their thought process about how Halloween Ends was made does help somewhat with understanding why the film turned out the way it does, though personally the ending of the film still leaves a bitter taste in my mouth.
