Review by David Rupp
I have to be brutally honest....This movie didn't move me enough to write a review but here I am banging on these fucking keys looking for something to give you the fan. Something salvageable from this entirely mediocre presentation. As a fan I am not entirely convinced, not sold on the film, yet I don't believe it was a big enough piece of celluloid trash to slam it completely. Middle of the road is exactly where it lies, a cast that reads like a genre who's who list, maybe hoping to distract from the sheer blandness. There were some good points, some shots and scenes not so "in your face" that leave you to imagine the outcome, I miss those days. Days where the film maker urges you to think and draw your own conclusions, rather that shove it right up the unsuspecting fans god damned nose.
Yet I get off topic. For the most part the acting fit the parts, The young Michael played by Daeg Faerch was by far the most convincing. The scares weren’t there, creepy factor was low, but for a new generation this is their cherry-buster. I will give it the suspense was present and alarmingly well plotted, with minimal holes. Also the shaky cam thing is not always a good idea. As with establishing the humanity and emotion within Myers, it just about ruined the mystique surrounding him.
Overall I am not impressed, nor am I going to totally wipe my ass with it. It is an experience you dear reader will have to face on your own. As far as I am concerned it would have been better as a sequel/prequel.
