Laurie Strode’s quiet life as a Haddonfield high-schooler took an unexpected turn into terror on the night Michael Myers came home. Still haunted by the ordeal forty years later, this resilient woman understands Michael will come home again. Laurie knows her family must prepare to take action … but nobody’s listening.
Laurie Strode’s estranged adult daughter, Karen, was raised in an environment of paranoia, weapons training and survivalist nightmares. Separated from Laurie by order of the state, Karen prizes her normal life and does her best to ignore her mother’s warnings.
Allyson is Laurie Strode’s granddaughter. Much like Laurie was at her age, Allyson is an average high school kid, concerned with grades, babysitting gigs, boyfriends, and the Halloween dance. She tries to mediate between her mother and grandmother to bring the family back together.
Michael Myers is an enigma. Described by his first psychologist, Dr. Loomis, as “pure evil,” he exhibits a complete lack of human response and kills without rhyme or reason.
Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago. Master of horror John Carpenter joins forces with director David Gordon Green and producer Jason Blum (Get Out, Split) for this follow-up to Carpenter's 1978 classic.

The movie takes place 40 years after the original movie, ignoring all sequels in between. While this is not the first time they have done that, in fact this is the fourth alternate timeline in the series, this time however I believe they got it right. In a storyline reminiscent to Halloween H20, the main difference being instead of having Laurie Strode running away from her past, this time she is prepared for it, as the 40 years past has her spent honing her battle skills to ready herself for Michael’s impending return.
Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode here gives a terrific performance that is rare among horror movies; more akin to a serious drama. Curtis is believable and nuanced, allowing the film to ground itself into a level of realism, divorcing itself from the goof and lunacy from earlier entries like The Curse of Michael Myers and Resurrection. Curtis is the backbone of the film and without her giving it 110 percent, the movie could have faltered and not worked at all.
Thanks to the grounded performances and direction, Michael Myers this time around feels much more menacing. Since the victims he kills feel way less like cannon fodders like in typical slasher movies, the overall tone of the character is darker and more mean-spirited. While still having some slasher tropes, the characters in the film feel more real than ever, so when scary moments hit, I genuinely wanted them to survive, but only for my heart to sink, when they bite the dust in the bloodiest, most disgusting, brutal way.
Michael Myers is a horror icon, but he has not been frightening since the original. As the series went on, he became a generic masked killer at best and laughable at worst. The reason for that is because the sequels simply do not know how to frame him. Ask yourself what makes someone scary? Absolutely not when you explain away his curse with Thorn and turn him into a hitman for a cult, or recount his white trash family backstory. None of that. Here he is just a highly resilient, deranged man, who lacks morals and empathy, and preys on one of mans’ primal fears - at any moment someone can break into your house and murder you for no reason and with no remorse.
The best scene of the movie is a tracking shot where we follow Michael through the neighborhood, breaking into people’s houses and murdering them in the grisliest way. The camera, the tension, the lighting, the kills all make it one of the best horror scenes of recent memory. And the final showdown between Laurie and Michael was cathartic and satisfying, having been built up throughout the entire film.
As for negatives, I kind of wished they show more of the holiday of Halloween. Yes, we get a Halloween dance and background scenes of children trick or treating, but something the past movies did absolutely right was capturing the spirit of the holiday that I felt this movie kind of just skimmed through. I wanted more walks through the autumn foliage and perhaps even a scene at a costume shop would have been appreciated.
With Laurie and Michael both working as characters for their different respective reasons, the rest of the technical aspect of the film is equally brilliant. The writing, directing and music (of which John Carpenter returned for) are all top-notch. Halloween 2018 is the best movie of the series for me, topping even the original because of the much more menacing nature of Michael Myers. The movie is a slash far above the rest of horror movies of the same vein. Halloween will satisfy those who are looking for a fun, jump scare-filled movie, as well as those who are looking for intense, arthouse horror.
I really believed that this take on Halloween was supposed to return to the atmosphere and attitude of John Carpenters masterpiece and I looked forward to it more that any movie in years..I thought Michael Myers would once again become "the shape" lurking in the shadows causing fear, dread, and gut wrenching suspense with the help of a evil sounding minimalist score (even John Carpenter disappointed me here). And why not pay homage to Dean Cundey's fantastic cinematography? This looked like some made for Netflix poorly lit fake film..I'm glad they dropped the Laurie is Michael's sister thing that started in Halloween 2 (A far superior film) but that is about all that I liked...If this is supposed to be a direct sequel to the original why make Laurie a psycho vigilante hell bent on revenge?..I have no problem with the Laurie character making a appearance in the film, but to have some ridiculous final show down with a plot to cage "The Shape" is about as far away from the mindset of groundbreaking 70's independent film making as you can get...And don't get me started on the sitcom style humor.
I swear I almost started to tear up in the theater due to my disappointment. This is no better than Halloween 4,5,6, H20, but anything is better than Resurrection...Halloween, Halloween 2, Halloween 3: The Season of The Witch, Rob Zombies Halloween, and yes even Rob Zombies Halloween 2 are all that exist to me. But those films are still not worthy of being mentioned in the same breath as the original Halloween. I have not been this wrecked with disappointment since "The Phantom Menace"
Clearly heavily edited which accounts for a lot of scenes that seem "off".

Mi único pero fue el slipcover venía muy maltratado.
Recomiendo igual comprar la edición importada, la edición nacional Universal está imprimiendo muy raro el papel, que le resta calidad al producto.
Audio Inglés 7.1 / Español y Francés 5.1
Subtítulos en los mismos idiomas.
Algunos extras para entretenerse un rato.
la imagen y el sonido del blu ray es de exelente calidad,viene con doblaje al español latino,y por supuesto en su idioma original ingles...el envio como siempre por parte de amazon,maravillosamente bien empaquetada y en magnificas condiciones.
Esta versión cuenta con idioma y subtítulos en español. La película es una buena historia con buenas actuaciones y muy bien dirigida, honrando el legado de la primera y siendo secuela directa de esta, ignorando las historias de las secuelas existentes. La banda sonora es digna de coleccionarse en vinilo.
Fue una ganga, completamente feliz con la compra, vale totalmente la pena
Cabe destacar únicamente que no es compatible con Dolby Vision, por si te interesa saber.
