While many gruesome deaths are expected from Halloween franchise, Michael Myers has his highest death toll of the entire franchise in Halloween kills. Evil did not die that night, but 34 residents of Haddonfield did. Every death in Halloween kills was brutal, from those who committed suicide to Smart-like the madness of some of Michael’s skillful murders. Among the notable figures who died in Halloween kills are Tommy Doyle, Marion Chambers, Lonnie and Cameron Elon, and, for the film’s latest murder, Karen (Judy Greer).
Halloween killsThe climactic ending shows Karen staring out of Michael Myers’ window before he suddenly appears behind her. In a stylistic tribute to the murder scene in the shower in psychopath, Micheal brandishes his knife and leaves Karen as his last victim in the film. While Karen’s death was surprising, given that she was so close to making it out alive, Universal accidentally ruined the character’s fate before the film’s premiere. Judy Greer said Vulture that when she started doing press for Halloween kills a month before her premiere, the first question she was asked was about her not appearing on the sequel’s IMDb page, Halloween ends. Jamie Lee Curtis was obviously going to be listed on the sequel page, but leaving out Judy Greer as Karen was likely to warn passionate fans of the franchise.
After realizing that his character’s fate was evolving in Halloween ends was already secretly on display so soon, Greer called Universal Pictures and told them it would be best to list her on the sequel’s IMDb page. Greer’s quick thinking contributed to the surprise factor of Karen’s tragedy Halloween kills dead, but the fact that his name was originally missing from Halloween ends‘page can debunk the theories that Karen actually survived. It has been revealed that Halloween ends involves a jump in time until the present day after Halloween (2018) and Halloween kills‘2018 timeline, so it’s unclear whether the final film will have time to feature Judy Greer on screen.
Currently, Jamie Lee Curtis (Laurie), Andi Matichak (Allyson), Nick Castle / James Jude Courtney (Michael Myers) and Nick Lawrence (credited as Police Officer) are the only actors listed on Halloween ends‘IMDb page. It seems that following Halloween kills‘and the revelation that Karen became a victim of Michael Myers, IMDb finally removed Greer from the cast list. Interestingly, Judy Greer only mentioned the Halloween kills IMDb confusion when the reporter asked him if his listing on Halloween ends‘the page meant that Karen had truly survived. She does not answer the question directly, but by revealing that originally she was not supposed to be on the Halloween ends list of actors, it is likely Halloween kills truly marks the end of Judy Greer’s time as Karen.
