True to the original classic Halloween finally a good horror slasher film they did it right
31 October 2018 | by rambofan4lifeSee all my reviews

I don't understand the hate for this film or why is it so bad? I went too see this movie In the movie theater last night with my eyes and my mind open, which I had blast watching the film. It is gory, it is bloody with real horror slasher effects. The filmmakers were true to basics and they did it something right. Michael Myers did not disappoint and he wasn't a joke like he was in some sequels. I love the gore the death kills, you see a woman been stabbed with kitchen knife trough her head awesome and disgusting. That was bloody gore fun.

We have a heroine Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) who fight honorably with Michael. They finally did a right making a good decent horror slasher movie. If I had to pick top 3 best Halloween movies they would have been the original, this one the second favorite and part II from (1981) which was another true sequel to the original.

There is a lot of body counts, we see teeth's, good special effects. Good direction from David Gordon Green. It was produced from John Carpenter and Jamie Lee Curtis. I enjoy this film it is true to the original and ignores all the sequels. It is set 40 years and we see Laurie been a mother and messed up, but so what. The gory kills were great. The cast did well job done. The Music theme was based by John Carpenter, Cody Carpenter and Daniel Davies it was good score. Jamie Lee Curtis was excellent and she did her job right and well done. I like the cast and this movie, the story and some of the characters. It was also scary and the film freaked me out and almost every one in the theater.

This was the second Halloween movie I went too see in the movie theater. In 2002 I went with my friend to see Halloween Resurrection that movie was dog s**t but I had blast seeing it with the girls. Last night I had a rough night in the movie theater and people including old couple and teenage brats girls took my sit, some witch was accusing me something I didn't do, were extremely rude and mean too me but this movie was worth too see it in IMAX and did not disappoint.

This movie was MILES way better than Rob Zombie's Halloween I and II movies that I hate it so much. Even John Carpenter him self was disgusted with those 2 movies and how Rob Zombie lied about John Carpenter he wasn't supportive to his films and stone cold towards him, of course that wasn't true. John Carpenter is not mean. He made great classics so I respect him and Jamie Lee Curtis more than Rob Zombie. Was better than Halloween Resurrection, Return, Revenge and Curse of Michael Myers it was miles better too me because I understood the film, the story line and what they trying to do.

The problems with the film I had was the facts that they ignored H2 (1981) brother/sister story and they didn't mention Laurie's friends at all, they didn't mention the reasons why Michael attacked her and why was he stalking her. I know why some people hate this film I read some people's comment saying about Dr. Sartain (Haluk Bilginer) and the twist on the end and because they did not like Dr. Sartain character because he was no Loomis. There was no Donald Pleasence as Dr. Sam Loomis in the movie because sadly he past away 23 years ago R.I.P. and it wasn't dedicate to him. They did dedicated the film too Moustapha Akkad who was producer of this long franchise. I love the twist I think this is the last Halloween movie and they did it right I enjoy the film.

Happy Halloween everyone!
