I was excited to see this having watched the original in 1978, back on Chanel Z, the first cable station around here. When you go into a "horror" movie you expect to suspend belief in certain situations between scary parts, but this was too much. The writing and plot were so bad in this one it pretty much overruled what was good about it.

Agree 100% Halfcan.

They had a kernel of a great idea with the Laurie PTSD and the hunted becomes the hunter. But then they ruined it with the worlds stupidest script.

The guards got off the bus to round them up and then he let MM go, who killed one and left the other for dead. The doctor hid on the bus until getting shot. That is a lot of stuff they left out for the viewers to try and piece together.

It would have been better to have MM bust loose and take the mask from the reporter at the mental hospital. This movie had a lot of very great scenes but the script was way too hard to follow- even for a horror movie where you expect the people to make dumb choices.

Saw it for the 2nd time last night with a different group. Came away liking it more as I picked up on more subtle details.

I still think they could have shown Michael in the stalker role more than they did—much like the original. But other than that, I’ve got few issues with it.

Now I just hope they don’t ruin it again with crappy sequels. They’ve broken records in the box office, so I know another will be coming. But please don’t get goofy with it.

in all intents and purposes Halloween/Michael Myers is a finite franchise because he's not a zombie like Jason in Friday the 13th part 4 and up

Well thatís what I hope is the caseóI donít want to see him turn into another immortal type of character much like he did after H2 in 1981.

Wasn't Myers shot multiple times, fell out a window, then disappeared from the lawn in the original Halloween? Seems pretty zombie-like to me.

He was stabbed in the eye and neck as well, IIRC.
