Movie review: ‘Halloween’: satisfying horror sequel has tons of blood and strong language

Parents need to know that "Halloween" is a direct sequel to the iconic same-named 1978 slasher film that ignores every other sequel and reboot (all nine of them). Survivor Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis), now a grandmother, has been single-mindedly preparing herself for the day that masked killer Michael Myers would come for her again. Spoiler alert: He does. Expect graphic, very gory slasher violence and strong language ("f–k," "s–t," etc.) throughout the movie. The brutal killings include stabbings, slashings, impalings, beheadings, bludgeonings, and more. There's also brief nudity, teen sexuality and some drinking/drug use by both adults and teens. The movie is directed by indie star David Gordon Green and co-written by Green, Danny McBride and Jeff Fradley. Will Patton and Judy Greer co-star.
