It’s been 40 years since Laurie Strode survived a vicious attack from crazed killer Michael Myers on Halloween night. Locked up in an institution, Myers manages to escape when his bus transfer goes horribly wrong. Laurie now faces a terrifying showdown when the masked madman returns to Haddonfield, Ill. — but this time, she’s ready for him. – Universal Pictures

This right here is how you reboot/revitalize a franchise. I love slashers and the Halloween movies but jeez that timeline was wonky and convoluted. Well, no more only the OG Halloween is cannon. This movie takes Mikey back to the basics even putting him against Laurie again, who is not his sister. Halloween is the perfect ending and new beginning for the story of Laurie Strode and Michael Myers. In my opinion this was a perfect slasher movie, keep in mind I grew up on Scream. Halloween is a blast, it’s funny, tongue-in-cheek, meta, brutal, bloody and violentall the things needed for a slasher movie.

I'm a recent college grad trying to make my mark on the world. But I have no idea what I'm doing. Anyways I spend way too much money on movie tickets. I obsessively buy blu-rays and other movie paraphernalia, that's what credit cards are for, right? I like anything superhero related especially the MCU, the DC CW shows and I'll tell you Batman v. Superman wasn't that bad. My ultimate guilty pleasure movie is Daredevil. Yeah the Ben Affleck one. Watch the directors cut, it'll change your life. I have a tendency to have man crushes on men named Chris, especially Chris Pratt. My superhero obsession has also led to a gym obsession, I just want to look as good as Chris Evans in a plain white tee. I have a podcast on iTunes called the Deadlifting Dorks, I think we are really funny.
