It was a real treat to see Halloween 2018 during its world premiere last night. While it's great for folks who are new to the franchise it's much more or so a love letter to the true fan's of the series. Adam Green did a nice job directing and I found that the story itself was great. It's obvious Danny McBride wrote the movie because his hilarious humor is all over it. The acting for the most part was fantastic. Jamie Lee gives a wonderful performance as a new and slightly more intense version of her character Laurie Strode. She proves so effortlessly that after all these years, her title as the scream queen still reigns supreme. As for the screams themselves, Rob Zombie was very plentiful with his helpings of gore and violence in most recent years of the Halloween series and there's really nothing different here. In fact, the shock factor and gruesome meter are turned full blast in this installment. And the score? Well I won't say nothing about the score other than the fact that it was my favorite part of the whole movie. Carpenter's back and the subtle nature he brings to the music gives the grittiest movie in the series that same vibe that his original 1978 masterpiece possessed.
So to get plain and simple? I really liked it.
I give the whole thing an 8.5 maybe a 9 out of 10 escaped mental patients.
