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.

As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see. 


REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

In the mythical continent of Westeros, several powerful families fight for control of the Seven Kingdoms.

Meanwhile, the last heirs of a recently usurped dynasty plot to take back their homeland from across the Narrow Sea.
This is the eighth and final season.



REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

REVIEW: Boyfriend overload!!
The Rock, Jason Stathom and Ryan Reynolds in one film. Oh, my!
It was a great story, had tons of action and kick-ass moments. It was comical at times too. Everything I hoped for in this movie was there.
Just make sure you keep watching after the credits. It doesn't end when you think it does.
Watched with the hubby and he is a big fan. His exact words were, 'it was awesome'.
