Bloodbath! Nine films after the original “Halloween” (1978), producers, actors, writers, and director managed to get it right. Ignoring all previous sequels and reboots, it pays homage to all of them. I know, right? Producer Jason Blum, writer Danny McBride and co-writer/director David Gordon Green wrote it, re-wrote it, shot it, re-shot it, re-re-shot it, Timothy Alverson re-re-re-edited it, so your visit to the cinema pays off. 40 years to the day after “Halloween”, you get a sequel with:
- Soundtrack that still gives goosebumps.
- DOP to remind you or get to know of the ’80s (depending on your age) well-crafted slashers.
- And character-wise, the anticipation of highly respected original Laurie and Michael standing, once more, for the last time (?) toe to toe.
Gripping! Well written, well-directed, and well-acted, it is the showdown to clamour for. That said, the child inside me still wants to watch… Myers vs Voorhees! Mr. Blum, I hope you are reading.

Maybe it’s the traditionalist in me but as soon as I saw Halloween was out I knew I would have to watch it. Old school horror.
Imagine if the tagline on the poster was… From the guys who brought you… Pineapple Express (2008)!
