Halloween Blu-ray Review

Forty years after the events of 1978’s Halloween, Laurie Strode (Curtis) now lives in a heavily guarded home on the edge of Haddonfield, where she’s spent decades preparing for Michael’s potential return. After being locked up in an institution, Myers manages to escape when a bus transfer goes terribly wrong, leading to chaos in the same town he preyed on decades earlier. Laurie now faces a terrifying showdown when the deranged killer returns for her and her family – but this time, she’s ready for him.

The infamous killer Michael Myers strikes again in Halloween, arriving on Digital and via the digital movie app MOVIES ANYWHERE on December 28, 2018, as well as on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-rayTM, DVD and On Demand on January 15, 2019. Hailed by critics as “a near perfect blend of craft, character growth and nostalgia” (Perri Nemiroff, Collider),Halloween takes place four decades after Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis, Halloween Franchise, “Scream Queens”) narrowly escaped the masked Michael Myers’ brutal killing spree. Packed with bonus features including chilling deleted and extended scenes as well as special featurettes showing behind the scenes looks at creating the film, Halloweendelivers spine-chilling, hair-raising intensity and thrills to both new and repeat viewers.

I wasn't always a fan of scary movies. As a kid, I avoided them at every chance I got. As a teen, I watched them because my friends watched them, but never on my own. As a young adult things definitely started to changed and now, I love them. I still, from time to time, cover my eyes while watching a scary movie, but I watch them and I'm glad I got to watch this one.

There have been so many Halloween movies with Michael Meyers, but I have to say they did a great job celebrating the forty year anniversary of the original 1978 movie. Jamie Lee Curtis is sharp as ever as Lauri Strode. She's living isolated away from town and is prepared for Michael's return. It turns out she has a daughter and grand-daughter as well. Her relationship with her daughter isn't the greatest due to Laurie being, what her daughter thinks as, paranoid and over protective, but that all changes when Micheal escapes from a bus transfer from the institution he has been kept at. All the training and years Laurie taught her daughter to defend herself comes in handy when they face off with Michael.

I absolutely loved how we got to see three generations of women kick butt in this movie and will definitely be adding this movie to our annual Halloween movies we watch every year. Halloween comes out in stores on blu-ray and DVD tomorrow, January 15th!
