I’ve never watched a single movie in the halloween series, I didn’t know the story of Mike Myers and frankly I don’t care! This movie was a solid ride that kept me on the edge of my seat from start to finish and here are 3 reasons why:
- The Acting : Plain and simple the acting was surprising, most horror movies stick to the same script: terrible low budget actors and high quality effects. The grandmother (Laurie Strode played by Jamie Lee Curtis) stands out as that crazy family member who might be on to something. The granddaughter (Allyson Nelson played by Andi Matichak) who pulled off teenage confidence and being annoying as hell all movie was shocking too. Both played their roles perfectly and were believable, these are real people with real fears!
- The Plot: Slasher movies are usually stupid and have 0 attention to detail or plot, the directors assume we just wanna see people get their shit fucked up. Nah bruh, I like seeing a plot and this one stood out! The writers made this movie modern, looking at Mental illness, technology (podcasts) and modern teenage angst. A few times in this movie you’ll think one thing is gonna happen but then BOOM, issa plot twist, my guy Mike is a SAVAGE. Him and 21 should make a track (21, 21).
- the black kid : You have to watch this movie to understand haha BEST part of the flick!
This is not in the “Get Out” category of legendary horror movies but it’s a damn good movie, better than Venom and I loved that ! Personally I didn’t find it scary but the suspense and the final scenes made me a believer in this flick. 4.5/5 a fun ride!
