Halloween 2018 (#Giveaway Too)


AVAILABLE NOW!

RATED R

105 minutes


In October 2018, forty years after the massacre in Haddonfield, true-crime pod-casters Aaron Korey and Dana Haines travel to Warren County Smith's Grove Sanitarium to visit Michael Myers. They briefly interview Michael's psychiatrist Dr. Ranbir Sartain, a former student of Dr. Samuel Loomis, before meeting with Michael in hopes of gaining some insight into his past actions before his transfer to a new facility. Aaron brandishes Michael's mask at him, to no effect. In Haddonfield, Illinois, Laurie Strode is living an isolated life, having been divorced twice, developed a strained relationship with her family and turned to alcohol. Laurie has prepared for Michael's potential return through combat training. The following night, Michael's transport crashes. Michael kills a father and his son who stumble upon the crashed bus on the road, and steals their car. The following day, on Halloween, Michael resumes his killing spree, killing several people at a gas station, including a clerk, a mechanic for his coveralls, as well as Aaron and Dana. He then recovers his mask and heads to Haddonfield. Laurie attempts to warn Karen, and her husband Ray, of Michael's getaway, but they dismiss her concerns..


REVIEW:
I loved this movie and so did the hubby!
That really says a lot, since he hates horror and didn't really want to watch it but I made him anyway. I happen to love horror and was on the fence about how I thought this one would turn out. I had been disappointed a few times over the franchise period, but not this time.
It was such an intense film! Killings around every corner! Literally!
The only gripe I have is the predictability in who would get killed. We took one look at a character and knew his or her time would inevitably end soon. That was annoying and yet comical.
Still, there was a nostalgic feel to this one. Maybe Carpenter being on this film made a better impact for it?! I loved that Laurie and her clan knew what to do and made it happen! Laurie was as badass as ever! That was where the nostalgia came in, I guess....
Yup, a good one if you like the original Halloween, (let's just leave out the few in between). Also a great watch for horror fans!

  3. I have seen the first Halloween film and the 2018 Halloween movie. Both movies are fantastic. If I had to choose a favourite horror movie it would probably be The Shining.

  7. I have seen all of the previous Halloween films in the original series except for Part Six, "The Curse of Michael Myers' with actor Paul Rudd. I also saw the two Rob Zombie-directed movies but thought they were awful! My favorite of the 'Halloween' films is the original with Jamie Lee Curtis, but Part Four is a close second. My favorite horror film is 'Nightmare On Elm Street Part 4: The Dream Master'.

  9. I loved this one. Just picked up the movie on DVD! The original was so fresh for the time and so well-done. Did you listen to the podcast on the new movie? It's called Halloween Unmasked. They did a ton of interviews with everyone and really broke down the franchise and why it's a classic.

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

#ChristmasInJuly #Win A Onesie Or Pajamas Of Your Choice! (US/CDN)

The most wonderful time of the year is back, (a little early)! It's Christmas in July!! You too can celebrate with a wonderful gift right here. UglyChristmasSweater.com has the funniest, traditional and branded goodies on the planet! Here is a sneak peek at a couple of things I personally love on their site.

Last year, I reviewed one of the sweaters. You can view that post here. It is easily my favorite holiday sweater. It's so warm and I love the quality of it. This year, I was asked if I wanted a onesie or pajamas to check out. You know I had to jump at the chance, knowing what great quality clothing they have.

I got the Grinch on my onesie! I got an extra large size, and before you go crazy knowing that is big for me, I don't like my pjs to be tight and constricting. I always go a size up on my night clothes. I must have been traumatized in a past life.... These Grinch pajamas are soooooo soft and comfortable. The best part is that it's A/C season so I can actually wher…
