40 years, to the day, after the events of Halloween 1 & 2…..he’s back! Returning to the town of Haddonfield where it all began Michael Myers continues his killing spree while ultimately tracking down the one victim (and her family) who has eluded him, Laurie Strode. Yes both The Shape and Jamie Lee Curtis, the scream queen herself, are back and yes it had been 40 years so we find that Laurie Strode is now a paranoid, lives alone in a cabin with a shooting range full of mannequins and a panic room to beat all panic rooms, grandmother who is estranged from her daughter and occasionally her granddaughter.

Please Note: The Following Contains Slight Spoilers (Sorry!)

Ever since watching the trailer I was so keen to see this movie and upon watching last night (thanks to old bosses who have access to streaming links BEST!) I was not disappointed. In three words; This. Movie’s. Awesome!!

By this I mean the fact that Grey (Logan Marshall-Green) is/was a mechanic and works on muscle cars and his wife doesn’t understand how he likes them because they don’t drive themselves or talk back. Or a later scene that has him paying for something and receives the comment “Ooo paper money, how fun”.
