Halloween Ends (2022) prominently features the Grand Gallery and the Hall of Shadows, clearly seen when Michael Myers (James Jude Courtney) is pinned to the table emulating the Devil’s posture (the above and below of Hermes Trismegistus) on card XV, signifying that he is evil incarnate. Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) in The Shining (1980) strikes the same pose at the Overlook’s July 4th ball, manifesting in Ends with Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) as a disturbed writer.
