Aussie boy's thoughts

The unsettling soundtrack, intelligent story and ominous motion following Michael Myers in this spooky Halloween update will form a haunting feeling of eerie excitement. 2018’s Halloween doesn’t exactly live up to the 1978 film, but is still actually pretty entertaining. And whilst it’s definitely quite satisfactory compared to today’s horror films, it lives up to its appealing title.

So what gets you thinking that Halloween might be a good selection for a horror title? If you’re expecting violent slashing and true horror, you’ll get the graphic killings, but the film relies on the predictable violence for horror. The climax is definitely intense and several scenes are suspenseful, but all that’s left is the music and violence. But that never stops Halloween from being a great slasher movie.

Although some sequences are slow and it may start heavy for some, Halloween 2018 is certainly worth joining this horror series. Well done to this skilfully-made slasher — You entertained us!
