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!".
