    When I first heard of this one, I was hoping for a "near Halloween" release date. The original poster art and the cast were the draw for me. Sadly, the release date was November 4th (for us schmucks without connections that don't go to festivals, that is), and it loses a star for that alone. In my opinion, films that have to do with Halloween are obligated to at least shoot for a "before October 31st" release date. I'm sure…

    I knew it would take me a few days to gather my thoughts on this film before I would be able to write about it.

    Let's start off with stating the obvious, there are things about this film that I have problems with, and also the obvious, it's still a fantastic film.

    First of all, remaking scenes from the original Halloween II and putting them into this film seems forced and out of place given the fact that everything from…
