Circa 1968, several strangers, most with a secret to bury, meet by chance at Lake Tahoe's El Royale, a rundown hotel with a dark past. Over the course of one night, everyone will show their true colors - before everything goes to hell.
A priest with a haunted past and a novice on the threshold of her final vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate the death of a young nun in Romania and confront a malevolent force in the form of a demonic nun.
In the child's bedroom the rotating lamp features a clown with a knife, a nod to the first killing in the original film. See more »

I always knew he'd come back. In this town, Michael Myers is a myth. He's the Boogeyman. A ghost story to scare kids. But this Boogeyman is real. An evil like his never stops, it just grows older. Darker. More determined. Forty years ago, he came to my home to kill. He killed my friends, and now he's back to finish what he started, with me. The one person who's ready to stop him.

Not what I was expecting but still something pretty good
I really enjoyed the opening with the credit scene like the first one. A climax of kills leading us to the inevitable encounter between Michael and Laurie. Carpenter's touch on the score is amazing, as usual. Green pays tribute to the original with some scenes that look like "oh I remember that!".
In an era of questionable remakes and sequels of 70/80s slashers, Green's Halloween defends itself.
