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.
While Vicky is babysitting Julian, she is wearing a white shirt with yellow sleeves. In the original Halloween (1978) Tommy Doyle is wearing pajamas with a white top and yellow sleeves when he lets Laurie back in the house as she is chased by Michael Myers See more »

I hear you telling your friends to come over here and you're gonna smoke some weed.
Julian, I'm talking about like, a... you know, like a magic trick. Abracadabra!

I'll keep this brief to avoid spoilers for those who haven't seen it. This movie does everything right and includes almost everything a fan loved about the original. The atmosphere also feels like Halloween, also a good modern but vintage vibe. Michael and Laurie are also given justice in this film for being well made once again. Blumhouse did an amazing job with one of our most beloved characters and they need to start giving all our other characters the same treatment as this version of Michael Myers.
