Halloween ★★★½

god, jamie lee curtis is good, huh?

i feel like her performance as laurie is the thing that really elevates this - she does a really does a great job of getting at how the trauma of the events of the original halloween could come to haunt her for the rest of her life, and the knock on effect that'd have on those around her. the movie also does a good job of making michael seem like an imposing physical threat, but the slasher elements aren't particularly revolutionary. definitely a good way to start of the spooky season!
