Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Halloween 2018 is a film of three halves. The first part sets up the premise nicely – that Michael went to jail after the original and that the sequels (and the family link to Strode) didn’t exist. Not a bad thing. It’s a creepy and effective set up. It’s the middle part where the film looses it’s way a bit, falling into the trappings of the film’s it’s trying to ignore. Thankfully it pulls it back with an uber creepy last section which ties together the strings nicely and ends up leaving the film with a neat ending… should it wish to walk away. Overall it’s well worth seeing and one of the better Halloween movies.
