Hell of a film more like!
on 17 June 2011
Im probably missing the point, BUT Hollywood must be pretty scant of writers if this is what to expect.
Having seen the remake of Halloween and must admit pleasantly surprised, I waited with baited breath to watch this. I should have known there was trouble when the film went on sale with barely a whisper, well to me anyway.
At the begining we are (like the original Halloween II) back at the end of Halloween. We then go to the Hospital, as in the original..... looking good so far. BUT! No. Wait its all a dream. Michael is alive, and living on a farm somwhere biding his time, while a white horse?, his mother?? and a younger version of himself ???, kindly oblige Michael with the order that Laurie (his sister) is well.... ripe for a slice.
He then goes back to Haddonfield to carry out his work. Meanwhile Dr Loomis (a completely different character from the original)is busy trying to sell his book about Michael Myers, (I get the distinct impression that Loomis isn't particularly interested in Michael, except for a little cash flow, whereas the original Dr. at least tried to stop him and basically made this his lifes' work at doing so), Michael meanwhile carrys out his mum and other selfs wishes until the ultimate confrontation occurs at the old house - Loomis presumably dies, Laurie lives and Michael dies. The End .... or so we all hope. Some things are best left alone, and this .... well .... not impressed, just say that.
