  • The return of Michael Meyers, “Does he have as many lives as a cat”? Thankfully, this isn’t a cheap imitation of past films in this franchise. Did I say thankfully? I guess I say thankfully because this isn’t a cheap imitation of the past. It lives up to its name. Kills. The film picks up where the last one left off.
  • Michael Myers is trapped in the basement of a burning compound, and Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) bleeding from a knife wound in the gut while riding away in the back of a flatbed with her daughter, Karen (Judy Greer), and granddaughter, Allyson (Andi Matichak).  Word begins to spread around town that Michael has returned, and it’s when the message gets to a local bar that spark meets powder keg. At the bar are Tommy Doyle (Anthony Michael Hall), Lindsey Wallace (Kyle Richards), Marion Chambers (Nancy Stephens), and Lonnie Elam (Robert Longstreet), survivors of the rampage in 1978 who have gathered on the anniversary to support one another as terrifying memories come to mind. Tired of being victims, Tommy and the others decide that it is time to start hunting – but as a terrifying mob mentality begins to form, the serial killer in the white mask becomes one of two deadly sources of fear on a blood-filled night. No this isn’t the Purge.
  • Without cheating or undermining the impact of its predecessor, the movie finds the fight against evil continues as the heroes are joined by all of the other Haddonfield residents who have been haunted by memories for 40 years, and they rise to try and end the nightmare once and for all. I guess who should be saying thankfully is Jamie Lee Curtis. She’s made money in this franchise and in this film, she is up to the task. Beware, this is brutal film.
