    2 years later I finally watched The VVitch tonight. Quite an interesting premise and tackle on that dark time in Young America.

    The approach to depict witchcraft and the paranoia involving it was well done. I commend the cinematography and entire final end sequence Spoiler: with the nude Thomasin wading into the forest to join the Coven as a new member. The entire levitation and laughter was ominous and unsettling. Love the imagery. So raw.

    Halloween was good. I give it a B+. Two things I disagree on, but overall itís a good halloween movie.

    If you are looking for something that will match the first or better than the first, leave that thought at the door. Those who didnít like it kept comparing it to this one and I think thatís not fair to this movie.

    Michael is finally scary again( and a little to evil, one kill stuck with me the whole movie; it was one of two things I didnít like about the movie.)

    Jaime was great as usual, but all the other actors were tun by the numbers. Score is great. Movie is short and things happen pretty quickly, movie could have used another 15-20 minutes to breathe.

    If you are looking for a good horror slasher movie this Halloween season, itís there. But like every other Halloween sequel, if you compare it to the first one, you will find yourself feeling satisfied but not fulfilled. If that makes any sense.

    This movie has got some gore. So if you were planning to take a pre teen, please donít. My theater had at least three families and I had to ask the dude next to me if I was in the right theater for Halloween.

    Going tonight, can't fuckin' wait man. Halloween is still my favorite horror movie of all time, first saw it in 1986 and it freaked me the fuck out. Managed to score two of the Mondo print drops today as well, though seeing a charge for like $180USD on my credit card will be a swift kick in my nuts.

    I woke up like a kid on Christmas this morning and drove straight to my nearest theater and caught the first matinee of Halloween. I really enjoyed this movie, and I'm making plans to see it again tomorrow night with some friends. This is probably the best sequel in the entire franchise and it's got a lot of positive aspects going for it: The score, Jamie Lee Curtis knocking it out of the park, the tracking shot (an absolute highlight), and Michael Myers has never been more foreboding and frightening. There's some comic relief that works and some that doesn't, and the film moves at a fast pace and could have slowed down a bit, but those are minor gripes. I'm very happy with how this movie turned out and would definitely recommend it to any Halloween fans or slasher movie fans.

    I'm gonna go see Halloween next week. Can't wait reviews are all positive so far.

    Just finished Unfriended: Dark Web.
    I actually thought it was better than the first one. I will I like the way they are doing these movies. Very original. This one was a solid 7 out of 10.

    Man, the urge to go see this movie again is hitting me hard right now. Maybe closer to actual Halloween.

    We started watching The Haunting of Hill House on Netflix last night and we couldn't stop, until it was almost morning and we were halfway done with the series. Holy shit what an excellent ghost story!!!

    My wife and I are hooked, too! Have you seen episode 6 yet? Itís incredible. I really want to know how many takes some of those scenes took in order to get right, and how much rehearsal went into it. I donít think the first cut happens until almost 16 minutes into the episode.

    Episode 6 was nuts. The scare in episode 8 made my wife and I nearly shit ourselves. The finale was fantastic. Hoping it gets renewed, though as a Spoiler: sort of anthology series, a la AHS. I feel the Crain family's story wrapped up nicely.

    Oh, so THIS is where people are talking about "Halloween". I went to the "What are you watching" thread last night to post that I went and read what other people thought, and to my surprise, not a single other person was talking about it.

    Saw it last night, and loved it. Last night I gave it a 9/10, but I might dial that down a bit to an 8.5, but a very, very solid movie. The best "blockbuster movie" I've seen all year, easily. This year has been pretty disappointing for me. The only movie's I've enjoyed up until now were smaller/indie movies that didn't have a super wild release. But this movie, captured me from start to finish. Not a single dull moment at all. I loved every minute of it. I was hooked from the start. Very, very good movie. Story could have used a little more fleshing out or time to breath as someone said, as once Michael starts to kill again (and it's pretty early on), he doesn't stop and the whole movie is just a killfest from that point on (not a huge complaint at all. It was very suspenseful), but at the end of the day... it's a slasher flick based on a late 1970's/early 80s horror franchise. So it can only be so deep.

    Now I want to see a Jason VS Michael movie. or a Freddy VS Michael movie. Doubt they'll ever do another cross-over like that. Between Jason or Michael, I've always been more of a Jason/FD13th fan, but this movie made me like Mr. Myers a little more. Great stuff.

    As a kid, I always got a laugh at how Michael Myers, the horror movie serial killer and the real life comedian always shared the same name, haha. Too funny of a coincidence there.

    Halloween: my only real issue is that one character, performance-wise, seems to belong to a tonally completely different film, and it's just distracting enough to somewhat cheapen a potentially pretty impactful subplot. That aside, it's hands down the best one since the original (Season Of the Witch is still my personal favorite of the sequels, but... you know, it doesn't really count) for the reasons already mentioned above. Great direction, cinematography and score, an awesome Michael and an outstanding JLC.

    Amazing ending, too, until the inevitable sequel ruins it. Oh well.

    Just got back from Halloween now. As others have chimed in I loved it and thought it was a great movie. Intense and brooding the entire time. I have nothing to add onto what others have said without repeating everyone.

    Great stuff. Gonna open my OST vinyl I bought yesterday and listen to it tonight.

    took myself to a friday matinee of Halloween (took the day off for mental health, my mom had to put our family dog to sleep while i was in the movie...rough day)
    i can't wait to see it again

    just watched happy death day and loved it. sadly saw the trailer for the sequel before halloween, which ruined who the killer is in the first one, but thoroughly enjoyed it nonetheless.

    The score is awesome. I hope a full one releases as the movie had some cues not on the retail release.

    After inspiration from the movie (and my old 2009 Halloween II shirts being too small and old) I bought The Shape's Mask on the right.

    Loved the music that played while the daughter ran from house to house knocking on doors.

    Agree about Halloween. Really enjoyed it. Some silliness doesn't hold up to realistic scrutiny like all horror movies, but alot of it does at the same time. Nice little twist happens as well that helps explains some things.

    which kill were you referring to here? you should spoiler tag it for people but i'm curious to know. i kept waiting for something to really fuck me up the whole movie but they all seemed pretty much the same level of horrific in my eyes.

    Was it the first time that Spoiler: he actually killed a kid onscreen? I imagine that would feel a bit off for some. It definitely surprised me.
