QUICK TAKE:
Horror: A woman, her family and their community must contend with the escape of a masked serial killer who terrorized her forty years ago and has resumed his killing spree.
PLOT:
It's been forty years since a masked killer terrorized Laurie Strode (JAMIE LEE CURTIS) during a killing spree in the small town of Haddonfield, Illinois. While that homicidal maniac, Michael Myers (JAMES JUDE COURTNEY), has been locked away for decades in a psychiatric facility -- now under the care and supervision of Dr. Sartain (HALUK BILGINER) -- Laurie has been preparing for what she believes is inevitable. And that's Michael somehow escaping and returning to finish the job.

That paranoia resulted in two failed marriages for Laurie and an estrangement from her daughter, Karen (JUDY GREER), who's married to Ray (TOBY HUSS) with whom she has a teenage daughter, Allyson (ANDI MATICHAK). The latter is preparing for a big Halloween party with her boyfriend, Cameron (DYLAN ARNOLD), and his best friend, Oscar (DREW SCHEID). None of them are initially aware, however, that while being transferred to a new facility, Michael has managed to escape and has begun his killing spree again.

That obviously gets the attention of sheriff's department officer Frank Hawkins (WILL PATTON) who was there on that fateful night forty years ago and is determined not to allow it to happen again. As is Laurie who's been preparing for this day for decades, from her fortified house to her array of weapons she intends to use to kill Michael.

If they're into slasher-based horror films or are fans of the other entries in this franchise they probably will.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
