Halloween 2018

Double Feature with HALLOWEEN III: SEASON OF THE WITCH (5:00, 9:30)

2018 • dir David Gordon Green w/Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Will Patton, Haluk Bilginer • 106 min • DCP

This return to the town of Haddonfield might as well have been called Halloween 2 – since it is, in all aspects, a direct sequel to the 1978 original and basically retcons all that has come between. HALLOWEEN 2018 reintroduces us to Laurie Strode (Curtis), the ‘final girl’ of the mass murder that occurred 40 years earlier – now a grandmother struggling to have a normal relationship with her family while trapped in non-stop vigilance against what she knows is coming… the return of Michael Myers.

David Gordon Green and co-screenwriter Danny McBride (though mostly known for their comedy work) deftly address issues of PTS, survivor syndrome, family dynamics in the wake of trauma, and, in this case justified, modern paranoia while simultaneously crafting a frightening and true-to-form slasher sequel – all with the blessing and creative input of original creator John Carpenter.

Staff Pick! Casey

“A brutal rumination on intergenerational pain, and the ways that male cruelty can make good women bad.”
– Josephine Livingstone, The New Republic

“Gordon Green and company have succeeded wildly and, on top of everything, have managed to add a cathartic message about surviving trauma to the proceedings.”
– Nick Johnston, Vanyaland
