Believe it or not, until a few days ago I had never seen a Halloween movie! I watch a lot of films, and love modern horror, but I’m ashamed to say that there are a lot of classic movies I’m yet to catch up on.
As I was keen to watch this latest offering in the franchise, I tried to correct things a little by catching up on the original Halloween movie. To say I was disappointed though was a bit of an understatement. While I’m sure at the time it was intense and groundbreaking, watching it for the first time in 2018 just didn’t do it for me. I didn’t not enjoy it, I was just expecting more.
Based on all of this, I’m probably not that qualified to give this 2018 movie a fair review inline with the rest of the franchise. All I will say is that I had an absolute blast watching this, and got everything that I wanted from the original, but didn’t get. Aside from a stupid twist, I thought this was great fun and loved how it felt so much like the 70s original.

My primary school teacher had me pretty well sussed from a young age when writing this in one of my school reports, but with CineChat I’m determined to change all of that. Even though my movie and TV watchlist continues to grow almost as quickly as my available spare time shrinks, I’m going to ensure I spend time elaborating on each one I do manage to tick off the list!
