Halloween 2018 stars the actress from the 1978 original, Jamie Lee Curtis, in her role of Laurie Strode, whose sister was murdered by the psychopathic Michael Myers on Halloween night. The 2018 version is directed and co-written by Dave Gordon Green, who is known for comedy rather than horror. However, although there are a couple of witty lines of dialogue, this is very much a horror film rather than a horror comedy.
Will and Eden were once married, but a tragedy drove them apart two years ago and they haven’t seen each other since. Now, Eden (Tammy Blanchard) and her new partner David (Michiel Huisman) have invited Will (Logan Marshall-Green) and his new partner over for dinner at their house, where Will and Eden used to live, along with about 8 other friends. It’s a nice idea to have the old gang together again, even if there is likely to be some old pain and tension still in the air.
