Alright, my little fearlings…I am so sorry for my lack of blogging. I have been insanely busy and I have so much for you to catch up on. So…
1.) A short Halloween movie review: I was very happy with how this movie turned out. It has been forty something years since Michael Myers has returned to Haddonfield. He was currently located in a mental institution, and the movie started out with two podcast writers taking an interest in interviewing him along with “the babysitter” he tried to murder on Halloween night. Now, if you know the original, you will find the many times this film has paid homage to its 1978 John Carpenter original (including the very exciting opening). I really like the direction this movie took, rather than Jamie Lee Curtis being the sister of Michael Myers, she was just the lucky lady he decided to go after that night along with her two friends. This time, Michael Myers was returning to Haddonfield to go after her family and truly anyone that stops him or gets in his way. It did not contain a whole lot of gore, and it stuck to it’s classic sort of scenes. It was the perfect film, especially to watch during the time it was released. Also, Jamie Lee Curtis did a fabulous job…that is all I can say.
If you like the Halloween series, you will enjoy this movie.

2. Happy Death Day 2 trailer: While waiting for Halloween, I saw the new trailer for Happy Death Day 2 U…AND I AM SO INCREDIBLY EXCITED. This was one of those movies I did not expect to enjoy, and once I started watching it, my mind about it was quickly changed. It is one of those comedy horror movies that delivers great lines, and fun. In the original, Tree was reliving the same day (her birthday) over and over until she finds out who the person is that is trying to kill her. In the second film, we get the idea that now instead of just Tree, the people around her are reliving her birthday over and over and each and every one of them will wake up on that day until they find out who is trying to kill all of them. I like that it went back to the original and now everyone is reliving that day too. I am definitely looking forward to this movie. It is coming out February 2019, and will be a great date film for those couples out there, but also a great girls/guys night sort of film. It will be PG-13.
Director: Christopher Landon (Happy Death Day)
3. Halloween (The Holiday): My favorite holiday was great. I am still currently in need of anything wheelchair and crutches accessible. I went with the wheelchair for the night, and went trick or treating with some of my family members. I came up with masquerade/gore makeup look. It was a very exciting time. Many of the houses had amazing decorations, all focused on different themes. Let me know how yours went…
