Halloween Review

Rated 5/5 (2 people). Log in to rate.

Michael Myers, the monster behind the infamous William Shatner mask, has been locked up in a state institution for 40 years. Two investigative journalists arrive at the state institution to talk with Myers and find out more information about him. Myers and other prisoners are to be transferred to another facility until their bus crashes and all the prisoners escape, including Myers. 

Laurie Strode from the original film who is the sole survivor from his killings finds out that he has escaped and has prepared herself to kill him. It is revealed that she has been discovered twice and her daughter was 12 years old when she was taken away from her. Her daughter, Karen, went on to have her own daughter, Allyson. 

During Halloween night, Myers goes on a killing spree, killing anyone who gets in his way as well as some of Allyson’s friends. 

Finally, he reaches Laurie’s house and has no idea what he is in for as Laurie has kitted out her house for his demise. 

This film gives a nod to the original in some ways, from using the original theme song and 70’s horror music throughout. It also mirrors the way Myers sets out to kill his victims by standing in their garden in-between hanging sheets to seeing his reflection in people's windows. 

There is more of a comedic effect in this film which wasn’t too cheesy or overplayed. The film doesn’t rely on jump scares either, but rather, tensions building up and it doesn’t shy away from showing the blood and gore Myers' victims had to face. 

Overall, it was a good horror film just in time for the spooky season to begin.
