I half expected the usual, cheap thrills, jumpy moments, and liberties taken with the legacy of Michael Myers, but....
....a total and utter surprise, this was a quality film, one that felt as if it had a level of respect for its original, it respected its roots, but forgot all those that came between, perhaps no bad thing.
Michael Myers the man, he transformed years back into some kind of superhero villain, unable to die, able to die and come back life, here he's treated as just a man, very well done.
The writing is fantastic, I loved the story, and how it played out, if only previous films were this standard. The music was absolutely fantastic, I loved it, the best of the original.
Gripping, well acted, exciting, intriguing. Ranks second after the original. 8/10
