The Bent*Spud 2 Cents:
This direct sequel to the original 1978 movie that birthed the slasher horror sub-genre retcons the whole franchise, which may dismay fans of the many sequels and reboots that have come since. Nevertheless, it shouldn't stop them from enjoying this latest entry in the Michael Myers canon, which is short and sweet, has the perfect pacing, and with the wee bit of humor thrown in to lighten up the atmosphere. 40 years on, Michael Myers is still terrifying and will send you right to the edge of your seat.
