Halloween ★★★★

40 years later, and the Halloween theme tune still send chills down my spine. Well, it put a massive smile on my face to be fair, but it certainly makes an impact.

After a fairly slow start, this one really got cranking. As soon as Michael got his hands on his mask the tension immediately rose and the violence began. For a horror stereotype, Michael Myers is entirely un-stereotypical and still remains one of my very favouritest boogey-men. Perhaps its because he's so very human. So authentic.

Jamie Lee Curtis puts in a solid performance as Laurie, who so many years after her first encounter is feeling more prepared for the rematch. Overall, this is a brilliant return to form for the franchise and in my eyes, second only to the original.
