The residents of Haddonfield don't know it yet... but death is coming to their small sleepy town. Sixteen years ago, a ten year old boy called Michael Myers brutally kills his step father, his elder sister and her boyfriend. Sixteen years later, he escapes from the mental institution and makes his way back to his hometown intent on a murderous rampage pursued by Dr Sam Loomis who is Michael's doctor and the only one who knows Michael's true evil. Elsewhere a shy teenager by the name of Laurie Strode is babysitting on the night Michael comes home... is it pure coincidence that she and her friends are being stalked by him? Written by
Dear oh Dear. The original was a classic and still makes me squirm a bit now when I watch it. What on earth was the point of this remake? Its just bad and really disappointed me but I guess I might have known it would. Far too much time is spent showing MM as a kid, although for me thats the best part of the film, as its different to the original and sets the scene a bit more, but when he escapes, thats when it goes downhill. The original was truly scary and edge of the seat stuff, all done by camera angles, music and building the tension. True to form, because they couldn't achieve that with a remake, they had to up the gore and it just didn't work, not for me. Verdict - nowhere near as good as the original and don't waste money at the cinema on this - see it on DVD if you must.
