Dr. Louis Creed and his wife, Rachel, relocate from Boston to rural Maine with their two young children. The couple soon discover a mysterious burial ground hidden deep in the woods near their new home.
Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers (Nick Castle and James Jude Courtney), the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.
Right before the father (Brien Gregorie) and son (Vince Mattis) find the crashed bus and escaped Smith's Grove patients, the son is telling his father about how much he enjoys his dance classes. Prior to his involvement on Halloween (2018), director David Gordon Green spent almost a decade working on a re-imagining of Dario Argento's Suspiria (1977), about the horrors going on inside a revered dance academy, eventually leaving the project due to budgetary restraints and legal concerns. An updated Suspiria (2018) was eventually made - directed by Luca Guadagnino, who'd personally hired Green to direct the film first when he was working on it as a producer - and released a week after "Halloween".

Laurie Strode confronts her long-time foe Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.
"He was not her brother, that's something that people made up." I think my favorite part is that it brought back some of the feel of the original films. The story pulls a days of future past and resets the timeline...turning the franchise into a giant etch-a-sketch. The dynamic of Laurie and Michael's lives was really fascinating and adds depth to the plot. I think this is a solid watch for slasher fans and a must see for fans of the franchise.
