HALLOWEEN (MA15+) New signs of knife for an old blade, US, 109 min

Townsville Bulletin - Townsville Eye - - Flicks -

This blood­stained love let­ter to the clas­sic 1978 slasher flick Halloween cov­ers all bases re­quired by hard­line hor­ror fans in fine, fright­en­ing style. A direct fol­low-up to the orig­i­nal sim­ply goes back to ba­sics, let­ting the chilling at­mo­spher­ics and over­all body count rise in ter­ri­fy­ing tan­dem. The fran­chise’s foun­da­tion hero­ine Lau­rie Strode (Jamie Lee Cur­tis) is now a screw-loose her­mit wait­ing in her wood­lands fortress for the day that her for­mer tormentor re­sumes his one­man mis­sion to kill her. En­ter the in­fa­mously un­know­able and in­de­struc­tible Michael My­ers, newly es­caped from cap­tiv­ity, and soon back to his old ways. A smart (and smart­ing) hor­ror movie out to hurt, haunt and high-five you
