I literally just finished watching this, and my heart is still pounding. This movie takes suspense, terror, and gory, bloody, brutal violence and rolls it up into an brutal, gory, bloody masterpiece. The beginning shows Michael Myers' past. He begins his murdering by killing small animals, such as rats, a dog, and a cat. After being teased at school, he brutally murders the classmate who was picking on him after school. He then proceedes his rampage by brutally killing his stepfather, his sister, and his sister's boyfriend. We all know this part. But, we get to see Michael in the actual institution, where he kills a nurse.
While being a marvelous, thrilling movie. It is definitely not for kids 13 or younger. There is full frontal nudity, for split seconds. A girl is raped anally, but not much is shown. The gore, while not as bad as flicks such as the "Saw" foursome, is actually pretty bad. People are sliced, diced, stabbed, slit, shot, strangled. THe language is pretty bad too. Fuck, shit, bitch, damn hell, whore, slut, and other varations are used in the movie.
The movie's ending, obiviously, set the movie up for a sequel. I am hoping it comes out soon. I reccomend this movie...if you are old/mature anough.
(I watched the Unrated: Director's Cut version of this, by the way.)
