Halloween (2018)
First screened in November 2018
Director: David Gordon Green. Cast: Jamie Lee Curtis, Andy Matichak, Judy Greer, Will Patton, Haluk Bilginer, Toby Huss, Virginia Gardiner, Miles Robbins, Dylan Arnold, Jefferson Hall, Rhian Rees, Drew Scheid, James Jude Courtney, Nick Castle. Screenplay: David Gordon Green, Danny McBride, and Jeff Fradley (based on characters and plotlines in the 1978 screenplay by John Carpenter and Debra Hill).

Twitter Capsule: Morally loathsome, technically spotty, totally unnecessary. Zero story sense. Ideologically favors "armed guard" neocons.

VOR:   The attempted Sarah Conner-ization of Laurie Strode doesn't pan out at all, representing gross forms of domestic "security feminism" and reboot culture.
