Movie Info & Cast
It’s been 40 years since Laurie Strode first escaped the murderous intentions of Michael Myers on his Halloween killing spree. And now Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role to face off against her stab-happy brother, played once more by Nick Castle, in what just might be their final confrontation. Or is it? This is a horror movie after all. David Gordon Green, who co-wrote the screenplay with Danny McBride, directs this anticipated installment of the long-running franchise. And while the director and star of Pineapple Express drew inspiration from the original 1978 Halloween in crafting this new entry, they had a bit of help. In fact, series creator John Carpenter himself acted as a consultant. The film also stars Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Virginia Gardner, Will Patton, Jefferson Hall, and Toby Huss.

This film ain’t it
The shock/horror factor was missed as did the ship this fiasco sail in on. I was expecting an epic battle but found myself bored most of the time complimented with predictable scenarios. Ughhhh disappointed to say the least.....my favorite scene is Julian stealing the entire show with his humor.
This sequel can’t compare to John Carpenter’s ingenious 1978 original, but director David Gordon Green delivers a crowd-pleasing chiller that doubles as an existential commentary on horror itself, both on the screen and in our lives.
Green serves up everything we love about the first Halloween, completely playing off our nostalgia for the slasher classic, and to me, that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
The picture has a good shock or two up its sleeve before getting to Laurie's armored, booby-trapped home, and once it's there, it surprises us again.
