Halloween ★★★★

Michael Myers digs old tools of harm out of the rotting shell of a domesticity he once knew primarily as just a vehicle for inflicting spiritual violence. is it any wonder he tries to reassemble a family by making corpses and digging up tombstones? Laurie Strode nearly tears herself apart crawling and climbing through his nightmare dollhouse of failed connection, until all she can do is scream, dripping with blood and with a face painted shock-white by dust. Zombie's sequel might be the saddest slasher ever made, but the seeds of that deep ache are all here, and it's almost unbearable to watch at times. a genuinely undeniable film
