R | | Horror, Thriller
Laurie Strode confronts her long-time foe Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.
This is the second horror sequel/prequel to have the exact same title as its original, in this case Halloween (2018) which follows on Halloween (1978). The other one is The Thing (2011), being a prequel to The Thing (1982). Both the original films were directed by John Carpenter.
I can't do it!
Karen Strode: Gotcha.
When Martin is interviewing Laurie at her house, during a closeup shot his words and mouth are entirely out of sync, suggesting the line was changed during post-production.
On the opening credits, the Jack-O-Lantern gets slowly resurrected as the camera very slowly zooms towards it, white the credits is in the same position as the original 1978 version.
