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.
Sophia Miller, the actress that plays "Young" Karen Strode in the film cut 13 inches off of her hair for the role. She donated the hair to an organization that makes wigs for children who have hair loss. See more »
Sherriff Hawkins was a deputy in 1978. Let's assume that he was just barely 18 at that time (which is also unlikely) that would make him 68 years old now. Ususally he would be retired by this time instead of still being on active duty. See more »
Everyone in my family, like, turns into a nutcase this time of year.
I mean, your grandmother is Laurie Strode. She was almost murdered.
Wasn't it her brother who murdered all those babysitters?
No. He was not her brother, that's something that people made up.

As a filmmaker, I never post reviews nor have ever involved myself with anything on IMDB. But I will say this. I saw the world premiere last night at TIFF... it was fantastic. Genre, horror and halloween fans will love it. Being a huge Halloween fan myself, I was immensely happy to see how well they respected the source material and the characters. Fantastic job to the entire team on this film. It deserves all the praise. Go see it as soon as it comes out. Myers is back. Deadly, brooding, and real. Jamie leads the drama to all new levels.
