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.
- The Verdict
My watch-list of movies and TV shows continues to grow, while my available spare time continues to shrink. Occasionally I’ll manage to tick one off the list, and then I’ll try and ramble on a little bit about it on here.
