Loved all the inmates going crazy, when the blogger pulls out the mask. All going crazy, Michael just stands there calmly. Very creepy.

The scene where he kills the woman with the hammer, also creepy.

Lady shutting the blinds was brutal!!

The gas station attack was awesome. Poor Dana! Although, I think they edited that scene wrong. When Michael is attacking Aaron, Dana should've run for her life, and encountered all the bodies in the station. Or Aaron walks into the station, sees the attack on the cashier and runs in the auto shop, finds the mechanics body and Michael kills him. He drops Aaron's teeth in the stall, attack on Dana begins.

I also loved the scene with the motion detection lights.

Yeah I was curious about that, but I don't care for the explanation. Either he's a force of nature or he's a person making calculated decisions. Seems like DDG wants to have it both ways, for better or worse. Should've just left the baby out altogether.

here's my likes and dislikes

likes:
-- the score. that score was f***ing AWESOME
-- jamie lee curtis was amazing and really kicked ass
-- i really liked the scene with judy greer holding the gun after michael breaks the island
-- the kills were great
-- the fast-pacing when it goes into halloween night
-- the suspense. there were so many sequences that got me and the whole final act was filled with tension
-- michael myers is so brutal in this movie. not as brutal as the michael in the rob zombie movies, but i can't believe he killed that kid
-- the little kid vicky babysits; he was the funniest character in the franchise
-- the acting was pretty good. nothing oscar-worthy, but very well-acted for a horror movie
-- THAT OPENING TITLES SEQUENCE!!

dislikes:
-- why would they make julian make a joke while vicky is getting killed? it took me out of that whole scene and i just couldn't get back into it.
-- that plot twist came out of NOWHERE. and it was very poorly-revealed.
-- i wanted more laurie and less of the teens, especially that a**hole boyfriend throwing allyson's phone into that cheese/pudding/whatever was in that bowl.
-- the opening 30 minutes was very slow. but from the beginning of the scene at the gas station until the end of the movie, it was fast-paced

overall, i really loved this movie. i'm willing to overlook the cons because there were so many awesome things about this movie. can't wait to pick up every blu-ray release of this. does anyone think they might release another box set with this release? probably not.

I didn't find the opening boring at all. The visit to the mental hospital was creepy. The bloggers stopping by Laurie's house was a great scene, Jamie Lee was perfect. The chaos around the bus crash was also well done.

"Daddy,I just wanna dance kid", was cool. Too bad Michael got a hold of him.

My only issues with the film, the freaking teenagers. Aside from Vicky, they were all boring stereotypical WB/Nickalodeon rejects. Laurie's daughter and son-in-law were also groan inducing.

The only thing I really liked in this movie is the Title Sequence with the pumpkin.

What I didn't like:

- This movie felt like it was a demonstration as to what "not" to do in these situations.

- At the gas station there were other customers there, but only the podcaster notices the main attendant is dead. What were the other customers doing?

- I didn't care for the straight forward attacks on Halloween night, only to have Michael sneak into a house only to hide and wait in a closet. Then when a police officer responds to that call and finds the carnage he does not immediately call for back-up.

- The whole subplot with the boyfriend was only there to give a reason as to why Allyson does not have here cell phone.

- The kid trying to hit on Allyson in the back yard, and the motion sensors don't turn on when Michael moves.

- Again when the police officer is driving around with Allyson and the doctor and he spots Michael he, again, does not call for back-up.

- The plot twist with the doctor.

- How Michael was able to drive the police car through the gate on Laurie's property, stop the car in front of the house, stages the police car by placing one body in the driver's seat and places the head of the other cop in his lap with the flashlight and go hide and wait for someone to come investigate which was almost immediately after the police car rolls up.

- Those cops I just mentioned. They come across that scene and don't call for back-up.

- Having Laurie's house completely fortified, but does not have any security cameras within the house and no monitors in the safe room. Really, why have a safe room where you have no idea of what is going on outside of the room. It is like building a bomb shelter completely stocked with supplies for years of survival, but deciding to go out the very next day after the apocalypse to see if it is safe outside.

- Investigating a house in the dark by searching out each room one by one then "backing" out before you secure that room. Think about it. If no one is in that room that means he is "still" out there somewhere. Possibly in the hallway waiting for you to back out. Why not have a panic button to secure all of the rooms then investigate one by one by opening the steel door to each room to search it?

Yeah. The more I think about this film the more questions and issues I find unfortunately. This is possibly the most problematic script in film history IMHO. The amount of plot holes and flaws baffles me.

The " safe " room was not a safe room at all, it was a " trap "....that was the entire point of it. That is what it was made for to begin with. Laurie and her daughter had planned over and over again throughout the daughter's childhood how to trap Michael in that room and it worked. The daughter knew exactly how to act, what to do and what to say when the time came.

My only question is...did he survive the trap?

Loved the entire intro...the mask, the inmates laughing, the music/soundtrack and Michael in the middle of it all...just feeling the mask followed by the reverse aging of the original jack o lantern from the first film.

Loved all the nods to H1 with the opening sequence, the mentioning of the boogeyman, the teenagers walking through the neighborhood, the escape sequence with the inmates wandering around, the sheet, Laurie falling and disappearing instead of Michael this time, the closet scene with Michael in the closet instead of Laurie this time, the doll house of the original house burning, etc.

Loved the nod to the mythology by mentioning " the shape "

Loved the nod to the cult from HVI with the Dr. helping Michael escape.

Loved the nod to H3 with the masks

Loved the nod to H2 with the with the murder of the old woman in the house

Loved how they dismissed the brother and sister theory.

So much to love about this film. It was more of a tribute in my eyes to all of the films.

Don't overthink it, you'll ruin it for yourself...just enjoy it for what it is. It's miles better than most of the recent slasher films out there and puts many of the Halloween sequels to shame. Overall, I would give it a 4 out of 5. It was one of the best films I've seen this year and definitely a new favorite to watch during the Halloween season every year.

I loved how the bus crashed and the patients were all over the road. Very much a nod to the original. I was shocked that Michael killed that kid...really, I didn't think they even allowed that in horror movies, I thought kids and animals were always safe.

Yeah, the black kid was funny and all, but the humor took me out of the suspense. As the baby-sitter was being killed, didn't he go back and just stood thee watching? I don't know...didn't seem logical to me.

All the random killing just seemed too random and unnecessary to me. Michael always seemed to on a mission, and he would just kill if someone got in his way or if he needed something. Some of these kills just seemed too random.

Since he is not some supernatural evil force, he's simply an old serial killer, but he sure took a serious beating and kept getting right back up. Laurie shot him, he was stabbed, he fell, and I can't see how ANY man at his age can still get up as quickly as he did without any trouble and keep going after Laurie the way he did.

And that whole Doctor twist was ridiculous.

But I LOVED the set up, his escape, Laurie's story and her fight back at the end. GREAT stuff.

It was a good sequel, but there were plenty of headscratching moments:

1) Why the hell didn't Laurie turn on the lights in her house when she was looking for Michael? Especially in that room where she eventually does find him.

2) How did Michael find his way around so easily to the reporters and the Strodes? Did the doctor tip him off to their locations? And if so, when?

3) Why did Laurie's daughter and granddaughter have no reaction to the dad's death? Maybe they never saw his body, but they didn't at least suspect he was dead when only they made it out of the burning house?

The problem I have with that is that it reminded me of an old "Far Side" cartoon where two cavemen are using on old style trap of a box turned upside down with a stick holding it up trying to capture a saber tooth tiger. But, the punchline of that joke was that the cavemen were inside the box with the bait.

Also, this apparent trap is where Laurie stored ALL of her weapons and ammunition.

So to sum up, they trap Michael in this "trap" that contains all of the "hunter's" weapons.

Again, brilliant idea!!!

I am at a loss for words for that comment.

So if one were to think about it, it is truly a train wreck of a movie. But if one were to ignore all of the problems it is a 5 star movie.


Wow! Just WOW!!!

The Shape is trapped and the house burns down, but I love how you actually never see the Shape on fire nor his body in the flames.

Aside from the quality production values it really did feel like a work on fan fiction as opposed to a professionally made film. There have been a lot of horror movies over the years that I didn't like at first but over the next few days they kind of got under my skin and I realized they were a lot more successful than I realized. This has been a completely different experience. I was initially disappointed but the more I think about this film the more it falls apart.

This really concerns me about possible reboots of other classic horror franchises, since now the filmmakers and producers know it doesn't matter how good the film is as long as they spend half of it winking at their fans with hollow callbacks.

Yeah I was telling that to someone else. He's not Jason Voorhees, he shouldn't be able to withstand all that punishment and keep on going. Minor nitpick, though.

Another little nitpick I have with this movie is that they were playing up the mask as some major thing. Based on the storyline proposed, Michael only had that mask for less than 12 hours.

He obtained the mask when he broke in to the hardware store just prior to Annie taking Laurie to her babysitting gig. The events of the evening lasted for a short duration, and he was apparently apprehended later that night.
