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.
From the original, HALLOWEEN (1978), only Jamie Lee Curtis, Nick Castle and P.J. Soles return. P.J. Soles plays the teacher. John Carpenter returns as an executive producer and is credited for his music score. See more »
It is established that Mike Myers drives two squad car at various points in the film. Having been institutionalized since he was 6 years old, it's highly improbable for Myers to have the ability to drive any type of car. See more »

I half expected the usual, cheap thrills, jumpy moments, and liberties taken with the legacy of Michael Myers, but....
....a total and utter surprise, this was a quality film, one that felt as if it had a level of respect for its original, it respected its roots, but forgot all those that came between, perhaps no bad thing.
Michael Myers the man, he transformed years back into some kind of superhero villain, unable to die, able to die and come back life, here he's treated as just a man, very well done.
The writing is fantastic, I loved the story, and how it played out, if only previous films were this standard. The music was absolutely fantastic, I loved it, the best of the original.
Gripping, well acted, exciting, intriguing. Ranks second after the original. 8/10
