How to watch Halloween Ends: Stream the finale of the new trilogy in the UK, US and abroad

Michael Myers and Laurie Strode come face to face for one last night of terror and bloodshed in Halloween Ends

“Evil dies tonight” promises the tagline for Halloween Ends, teasing an end to the bloody conflict between Laurie Strode and the seemingly unstoppable killer Michael Myers that has been ongoing since the 1978 original. Releasing in cinemas across the world on 14 October, the final instalment of David Gordon Green’s Halloween sequel trilogy will also be available to stream in the US from the same date, on NBC owned streaming service Peacock.

Things, unfortunately, are a little murkier for UK viewers. While British subscribers are able to access Peacock UK as part of their Sky TV and NOW packages, it currently looks like Universal won’t be employing the same simultaneous cinema and streaming release strategy here as in the US. While there’s nothing to do but wait as far as Halloween Ends UK streaming status is concerned, you can still catch up on the previous films in the franchise, which are spread out across various streaming platforms. Halloween (1978) is available to stream by adding Lionsgate+ as a channel on Prime Video, Halloween (2018) can be found on Virgin TV GO and, finally, Halloween Kills is streamable via a NOW Cinema Membership.

What is Halloween Ends about?

Originally planned to be shot back-to-back with Halloween Kills, and follow on directly from the fiery ending of that movie, the final instalment of the new trilogy is now instead set to take place four years after the events of the second film. Halloween Ends finds Laurie Strode living with her granddaughter, Allyson, writing a memoir and attempting to shed the fear and trauma inflicted on her by Michael Myers. However, things take a turn for the macabre once more when a young man near where Laurie lives is accused of killing a child he was babysitting, instigating a night of violence and terror that will bring Laurie face to face once more with the evil she has long feared.Halloween Ends, like previous instalments in the trilogy, Halloween (2018) and Halloween Kills, is directed by Pineapple Express and Your Highness director, David Gordon Green, who looks to be sticking with his pivot from comedy to horror following the announcement that he will helm an Exorcist reboot trilogy over the coming years. In terms of on-camera talent, Ends stars Jamie Lee Curtis (The Fog, Everything Everywhere All at Once), Andi Matichak (Foxhole), Rohan Campbell (The Hardy Boys) and Will Patton (Remember the Titans, Minari).

How to watch Halloween Ends anywhere in the world: Use a VPN

If you happen to be outside the US, on a holiday, business trip etc., during Halloween Ends’ release window, you may find that your access to US streaming services is hampered by location based restrictions. A handy way to deal with such geo-blocking restrictions, and regain access to your streaming subscriptions, is by using a VPN.

A VPN, or Virtual Private Network, is a type of privacy software which allows you to browse the web anonymously and privately. A VPN helps you do this by encrypting your traffic, and also by rerouting it through different servers across the world. It’s this rerouting process, also known as ‘location spoofing’ which can help you access sites that might normally be blocked.
