It’s been forty years since the original Halloween was released. In that time the franchise has had some ups and a lot of downs (check out my rundown of the entire franchise here), but Michael Myers has stayed in the pantheon of horror icons.
This new movie decides to let the past die and stands as a sequel to the original film. That’s right, Laurie is no longer Michael’s sister, Michael has only ever killed 5 people, and no one has heard of or seen him in over 40 years outside of his doctors and fellow inmates.
Behind the camera is a crew you wouldn’t normally expect, with Kenny Powers A.K.A. Danny McBride acting as Executive Producer and Co-Writer. With him as Co-Writer and Director is David Gordon Green, whose work you may know includes Pineapple Express, Your Highness, and The Sitter.
