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.
After failing to develop a new Halloween film in time, Dimension Films lost the production rights for a sequel, which reverted back to Miramax, which then joined with Blumhouse Productions. In May 2016, a new installment was officially announced, with original co-creator John Carpenter's involvement as a composer, executive producer, and creative consultant. Principal photography commenced on January 13, 2018 in South Carolina, and concluded on February 19. See more »

Wow - I was really surprised by this one! The trailer was already great, and Halloween does not disappoint! 40(!) years later, and after so many genuinly great horror movies before it it still manages to scare and thrill me.
Seeing Jamie Lee back in such an iconic role in a sequel that's actually great is magical. This film proves that Laurie Strode is as important as Michael is for its success, and I loved every minute of it.
It had all the great stuff from the first Halloween, but also fit well into 2018 and its horror film standards. Good scares, it often kept me at the edge of my seat and I laughed at the right places.
Best horror film I have seen in a long time. It is coming from a true Halloween fan, but I recommend it to everyone who just wants to have a good time watching a horror flick!
I dont give it 10/10 simply because it did have a few clishé scenes that I think the writers should have been more creative with and some plot points that didn't really go anywhere.
