In October 2018, forty years after the massacre in Haddonfield, true-crime pod-casters Aaron Korey and Dana Haines travel to Warren County Smith's Grove Sanitarium to visit Michael Myers. They briefly interview Michael's psychiatrist Dr. Ranbir Sartain, a former student of Dr. Samuel Loomis, before meeting with Michael in hopes of gaining some insight into his past actions before his transfer to a new facility. Aaron brandishes Michael's mask at him, to no effect.

The best film with Michael Myers since the original
The first Halloween terrified audiences when it came back, and this film has successfully done it again, in a much more modern way which fully captures the joy of any filmmaker or even any modern cinema goer.
It's a way which I didn't want to see since it was announced, but man did it beat my expectations!
The new variation of the theme music is awesome, John Carpenter serves as executive producer and Laurie's iconic hair from the original is back (!)
I swear this is one of those movies which words cannot serve justice to how great it is, and this is all coming from someone who's seen every Halloween to date. BUT, if you really want to enjoy it even more, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE watch the original first!!!
