Finally!! I am back on the Movie Review Train. I do not usually see/review horror movies, but my husband is a HUGH Michael Myers fan, so I treated him to the latest installment in the franchise.
It’s been 40 years since Michael Myers first killing spree. Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie Strode who narrowly escaped being killed by Michael Myers in the first installment back in 1978. Laurie has had time to prepare. She has expected Michael to one day return and pick up where he left off.
During a transport Michael Myers and a number of his Institution mates escape. The story unfolds from there…
This is hands down the best installment since the franchise started. There are a lot of characters, the back story is well laid out and Jamie Lee Curtis reprising her role as Laurie Strode 40 years later is genius. You get a chance to see how badly Michael Myers affected Laurie and what she did to cope with the situation all these years.
It’s edge of your seat suspenseful during the last 35 minutes.
If you saw the 1978 installment of Halloween, then you should definitely see the 2018 installment.
This is a 3 ½ Star Movie!!
