Halloween ★★★½

I'll have more to say on the podcast next week but, in broad strokes, I enjoyed Halloween. It didn't blow me away or transcend the slasher genre for me or anything. But the kills were very cool and gory and that was really entertaining. However, I didn't feel that connected with any of the characters aside from Laurie and maybe some of the teenagers.

The movie pays tribute to the original in fun ways. And while I appreciate what the movie was going for with the doctor character, it didn't do much for me.

Good movie. But not anything earth-shattering for me.
