Halloween (2018)


Jamie Lee Curtis
Judy Greer
Andi Matichak

Directed by David Gordon Green

The movie is awesome and of all the Halloween movies, this is by far the best. The movie has one unexpected twist that caught me off guard and as expect Jamie Lee Curtis the horror queen gave one of the most amazing performances.

This movie is a direct sequel to the original. It also has Curtis and Nick Castle reprising their roles as Laurie Strode and Myers, respectively (Nick is much older so he did not play the killer in a mask part).
I liked what they did, everything that happened after the first film is deleted. Michael Myes is not Laurie's brother, just a deranged psychopath.
This movie is a cool thriller with all the needed scares, which may not actually scare you, but you will be at the edge of your sit the moment Michael starts hunting Laurie’s family.

I liked the scripting of not making the man somewhat supernatural, we see him get hurt. We do not see him scream, but we saw how the hurt affected his ability to be so prolific a killer. In this movie like in Halloween H20 (1998) I liked the way Laurie geared up to fight instead of running.

Laurie has had two failed marriages and a daughter who wants nothing to do with her. Laurie lives in a heavily fortified house, alienating herself from her daughter Karen (Judy Greer). The only person she keeps in contact with is Karen's daughter, Allyson (Andi Matichak).

Michael on the other hand is being held in a highly secured facility when a couple doing a podcast revived something in him, Michael broke out and returned to Haddonfield. His escape reignited Laurie's defense and Michael has began killing again.

The movie was produced instead of continuing with Rob Zombie’s reboot of the franchise. Which was a perfect decision, because his reboot version took the franchise into the B-movie arena of horror movies. This version takes it more mainstream with very good production and setting the bar high for the next ones to come.

The movie grossed over $255 million worldwide on a $15 million budget, making it the highest-grossing film in the franchise. Two sequels, Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends are being developed after the commercial and critical success of this movie.

So this movie is fun and so worth seeing.
