Halloween – Movie Review

Halloween - Movie Review

Isabella Gonzalez , Staff Writer

The recently created Halloween is a 2018 American film directed by David Gordon Green and written by Green, Jeff Fradley, and Danny McBride. This is the eleventh part in the Halloween series and is full of more suspense than ever. The film is about a woman named Laurie Strode who 40 years ago survived a vicious attack from the crazy killer Michael Myers on Halloween night. Although he is imprisoned in an institution, one night while he and the other patients are being taken to a different institution the bus crashes.

Myers manages to escape when the bus crashes. Later on in the film, most of the patients are captured but the killer, Michael, is out to kill again and now Laurie faces a terrifying showdown when the masked madman returns to Haddonfield, Illinois. However, in due time, she has prepared herself for this day because she knew that he would come back for her.

This movie makes Michael Myers a character even more than a cipher — the character’s nickname, “The Shape,” has never seemed more appropriate since he can mold himself into a horror anyone can imagine. Indeed, the kind of random violence and loss he represents in this Halloween is something that can touch anyone at any time, just as real-world violence and tragedy knows no bounds.
