In part it puts the first movie in perspective; it really would be a pretty intense true crime story. It also illustrates how cheesy true crime TV can be.
The new movie pretty much eliminates everything that’s happened in between the first Halloween and this one, wipes the slate clean. We haven’t seen it yet, but we have to admit it looks very much the same.
The big difference is Jamie Lee Curtis. As a nearly 60-year-old Laurie Strode she’s gained maturity, intensity, and a little bit of crazy.
