And the Halloween night when Michael Myers returned isn’t over yet. Minutes after Laurie Strode (Curtis), her daughter Karen (Judy Greer) and granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) left masked monster Michael Myers caged and burning in Laurie’s basement, Laurie is rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, believing she finally killed her lifelong tormentor. But when Michael manages to free himself from Laurie’s trap, his ritual bloodbath resumes. As Laurie fights her pain and prepares to defend herself against him, she inspires all of Haddonfield to rise up against their unstoppable monster. The Strode women join a group of other survivors of Michael’s first rampage who decide to take matters into their own hands, forming a vigilante mob that sets out to hunt Michael down, once and for all.
This is how a Halloween movie should be: brutal, vicious and elaborate kills by an unstoppable Boogeyman! And I’ll admit it right now, this is my favourite Halloween movie to date! (I think the trilogy will be my favourite in the series)
Reminiscing of Halloween II (even though not canon) this takes mostly place in the hospital, although this time Michael does not go there himself!
And the movie starts with a flashback to the events from the first film, actually just after those events. Michael walks away from the bullets Dr. Loomis shot into his body, only to meet with a young Officer Hawkins (Will Patton’s role in the present day, Thomas Mann in the flashback) and a young Lonnie (Tommy Doyle’s bully), eventually leading into a confrontation in the Myers house…
This movie is riddled with chaos, mayhem, guilt and best laid plans going awry! The town of Haddonfield is in total chaos when word gets out that Michael Myers is back on a killing spree. Tommy Doyle, Lonnie, nurse Marion and Lindsey (the survivors from the first movie) are getting people together to stop the Boogeyman. But will he be stopped?
In the meantime Laurie and Hawkins are in hospital, getting patched up after their encounters with Michael and doctor Sartain respectively. Soon it becomes clear that they are not safe from the evil that roams their town.
As I said this was my favourite Halloween movie so far! I loved the scene with the firemen, the posse scene at the end and the fact that no one is truly safe!
Now I have to wait for Halloween Ends to be released! Excited!!!
