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..
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!
