Bloodbath! Nine films after the original “Halloween” (1978), producers, actors, writers and director managed to get it right. Ignoring all previous sequels and reboots, it pays homage to all of them. I know, right? Producer Jason Blum, writer Danny McBride and co-writer/director David Gordon Green wrote it, re-wrote it, shot it, re-shot it, re-re-shot it, Timothy Alverson re-re-re-edited it, so your visit to the cinema pays off. 40 years to the day after “Halloween”, you get a sequel with:
- Soundtrack that still gives goosebumps.
- DOP to remind you or get to know of the 80’s (depending on your age) well crafted slashers.
- And character-wise, the anticipation of highly respected original Laurie and Michael standing, once more, for a last time (?) toe to toe.
Gripping! Well written, well directed, and well acted, it is the showdown to clamour for. That said, the child inside me still wants to watch… Myers vs Voorhees! Mr. Blum, I hope you are reading.
