This movie did a great job at making Michael Myers scary again and Jamie Lee Curtis did a great job portraying Laurie Strode.

the amount of stupidity in this movie is astonishing. i laughed so hard at so many parts. it's not scary and it's really really dumb. they seem like they wanted to capture the feel of the originals. if part of that was using old horror movie absurd logic and idiocracy, they succeeded. this movie is poorly made on so many levels. the positives: musical score was great, and it seemed relatively competent for a while, investing me in the story before showing its true face. hilariocity score = 4.0 (1 viewing)


SPOILERS


bro. just bro. there was a scene where he stomped a guys face to smithereens, and in the next shot his face was in tact with his brains coming out of the top. i went back to confirm, in the original shot his entire head was liquefied lmao.

apparently cop cars in that town have super tinted windows where even if the light is on inside the car, you can't see anything. except the glowing eye- and mouth-holes of the severed head inside the car. HOW?!?! he opens the door and you can clearly see everything well lit in the car. plus the way he had the flashlight in dude's severed head, he would have had to remove the brain, tongue and all tissue from his head. he looked like he did it with surgical precision.

the dad discovered said dead cops because he was chilling outside. just hanging out. when there is a murderer on the loose. when the grandma is inside turning off all the lights. scolding her daughter for having the light on. but hanging out outside? no problem.

and the best part? the "twist" rofl rofl. the mom tells the grandma about the underground layer being "a cage." grandma responds it's not a cage. later the daughter gets there, goes underground, and for some random reason cries "i'm in a cage." ..... ....... like..... for real? once michael meyers is down there, they close the bars on the entrance and light the room on fire to kill him. the mom tells the daughter "it's not a cage, it's a trap!" lolololololololololololololololol. i yelled OMG. also, once you block the entrance with bars, it actually kind of is a cage right? smh horrendous. oh and right before that, the grandma said "happy halloween michael" and stabbed him. just wow

Well, they tried, they really tried, maybe too hard. There were some cool parallels between this and the original...keeping the opening credits, the scene with all the escaped loonies walking around, the dead guy being held up by a big knife- but it lacks the originality and the rawness of the first film. There are also glaring plot holes. No explanation on how Laurie Strode affords the seemingly huge amount of land that's gated like a prison and a personal security system that includes her very own panic room which comes with a small arsenal of guns and ammunition. They don't show how Michael escapes for the second time. You don't get to see a lot of the kills and some of them serve no purpose and don't connect with the rest of the movie. In the original Michael killed for one reason: to get to Laurie. All of his kills lead up to him finding and trying to kill her. And hello? They leave the douchey boyfriend alive? Come on. And why all the quick shots of the side and back of Michael's head? One of the best and scariest things about him is that you never get to see his face. But now, when he's in his golden years and is all grey and wrinkled and looks like my grampa, that's when we get to see him?! Did you think that would save this movie? Well, it didn't. Even the very haggard looking Jamie Lee Curtis didn't save this. I really wanted to like this movie, but it was just so meh. Other than the last 20 minutes or so, largely forgettable. Pleeeaaase stop trying to remake franchise. Just let it be done.

It's enamored with the original but without any of the clever voyeurism that made that movie so effective. Still, Curtis is outstanding and I like how the mythology is reduced to the bare essentials.

A true Sequel to Halloween. It brings back the Halloween Feeling, But being it own movie, Jamie Lee Curtis brings it her all, amazing performance. The cinematography is one of the best yet. Its a must see

On top of the fact that the film offers several perfectly timed jumpscares, Jamie Lee Curtis does an outstanding job at playing Laurie 40 years later. Another nice touch is how some scenes in this film are really similar to the original, it's these little details that make the film shine.

Horrible movie!!! Had no story line, was jumping everywhere throughout the movie. Most of the time you don´┐ 1/2 1/2(TM)t know
what happens to the other characters, also had horrible acting. I don´┐ 1/2 1/2(TM)t know how it got a 79% on here. One of the worst movies I´┐ 1/2 1/2(TM)ve ever seen. Sorry for being brutally honest.

It was done really well! Michael Myers is as cold as ice in this film. Best one in the series since Rob Zombie's Halloween in 2007.

I lover seeing Jamie Lee Curtis reprise her role as Michael's sister and battling it out with him!!!

Best Michael Myers movie ever

Simply a terrible movie, horribly written and very lazily done over all.

This movie doesn't conclude anything. Pointless teenage drama, and people act so stupidly!

If only they didn't give away all the scary parts in the trailer. Then I probably would have liked it

Couldve been longer movie .and more scaryer.other than that loved it

I get what they were doing: forget everything and just watch the first one, then this one. And now in the wake of #metoo, it's women fighting back. I like that idea a LOT. But wow, was it a sloppy mess to get to that point. I tried to turn my brain off and just roll with the fun along the way, but the "message" and shlocky treatment of characters were deeply unsatisfying. I just found myself with a puzzled look throughout and kept questioning things then trying to return to just having fun... but it really just wasn't. A few scares, a few cool moments and even a laugh kept this from being 1 star, but ugh, I felt like it could have been better. I surely wouldn't sit through it again.

The sequel we been waiting for
Don't get me wrong I love all the Halloween movies
But this one really holds up to the original and references to the other movies are in this and it's not force awakens shoved down your throat and it's not a copy and paste of the original it brings back old things yes but makes them better by adding new and fresh things I give this movie a solid 9.5/10

Very predictable and not the promised special sequel. I expected a lot more.
