The “Halloween” franchise is coming back from the dead, 40 years after the original debut, and this time no one is holding back.

This time, the classic horror film reboot is directed by David Gordon Green, best known for comedy films such as “Pineapple Express” and “The Sitter.”

Serial killer Michael Myers and his hideous mask are back along with his original victim, the iconic Laurie Stroude, played by Jamie Lee Curtis.

Stroude was just a high-schooler who spent her weekends babysitting in 1978, and now, she’s a grandmother with trauma and a hidden agenda: to end Michael Myers.

The movie begins outside Haddonfield, Illinois where the original “Halloween” took place; doctors prepare for Myers and other to be transferred from one institution to another. Myers is able to escape the bus that is transferring him and flees to Haddonfield, where the previous 1978 murders occurred.

Stroude, nervous and tired of Michael chasing her—and her chasing him, after all these years— is preparing in a different way: locking herself away in her barricaded home, while begging her daughter and her family to do the same.

As Myers and Stroude face off in their last battle, Green takes the leap crossing horror with drama, thrills and a hint of comedy. The film shows how Stroude has dealt with her demons in the years past, and how her family has turned out because of it, which is a story any “Halloween” fan will like to see.

Although it’s debatable whether or not Stroude was killed by Myers in the prequels before, we’ll pretend that this sequel is taking place without the other nine movies in mind—maybe that’s what Green wanted us to do.

Whether it’s the return of the iconic characters facing each other one last time, or the introduction sequence that proves to be identical to the original, or the all-woman power team, there are so many things that Green did right in this movie.
