Halloween (2018)

October 18th, 2021

We're continuing our deep dive into the Halloween franchise by immersing ourselves into 2018's Halloween, the sequel that horrifically murdered all the other sequels from the timeline. Directed by David Gordon Green and executive produced and scored by none other than John Carpenter himself, this sequel promises to return us to Haddonfield and into the trauma-ridden arms of Laurie Strode herself, Jamie Lee Curtis.
