WHAT I LIKE?

HALLOWEEN finally started off a clean slate on this 2018 revamp. What I like about this new installment is its tribute and reference to the first and classic Halloween 1978 Movie. Aside from that, John Carpenter’s epic musical scoring is back and is giving me that throwback and eerie feels. Halloween picked off its story after 40 years of Laurie Strode and the bloody past she had with Michael. The story development was good and was just right. Overall, its fast-paced and direct. The opening scene was disturbing & haunting. It lingered on me for a while. As a slasher movie, Halloween 2018 is satisfying & gruesome. With an impressive number of body count and some terrifying kills, the movie really gave justice for the whole franchise. With the perfect musical scoring and some good mix of the epic theme song, it made some scenes very memorable. The movie also has some interesting characters. Headlined by Jamie Lee Curtis, the whole cast was impressive. I also love Judy Greer on this film. Halloween is still one of the undisputed mainstream Hollywood slasher films that truly redefined the genre. For me, I am impressed.

WHAT I DON’T LIKE?

Halloween could have been a lot scarier as it should be but for me, its forgivable.
