On Friday, October 19th, the new Halloween movie was released. I expected the film to be a remake of the original film (1978), but it is a direct continuation. Jamie Lee Curtis, one of the original actresses from the 1978 film, starred once again as Laurie Strode, but many years later. The movie takes place in the present day, Laurie is now a grandmother, who has spent her entire life preparing for Mike Myers’ return.
Halloween is packed with action, suspense, and some overall great special effects. In addition, there are some new jump scares, plot twists, and direct connections to the original movie. This is a must-see for not just any horror fan, but for any fans of the original movie released in 1978.
