A delightfully disturbing and thought-provoking “Carrie” meets “Misery” horror movie. Octavia Spencer delivers a terrifying performance; however, the movie is hampered by other one-dimensional characters. In short, the reason to watch this movie is for the outstanding performance by Spencer and the commentary on high school bullying and teen sexual assault.
Happy Halloween Michael! David Gordon Green’s Halloween truly is the sequel that we have been waiting for in the Halloween franchise. Green set out to direct a Halloween movie that he desired to work both as an homage to the original whilst crafting an original story that could do more than be a great horror film, but be a great film period. And suffice it to say, he delivered in spades (or knives, as it were haha).
