    He was probably grounded for having such a foul mouth.

    Ha, probably. The kid was funny, he did a good job. You can see he wasn't exactly following lines in some parts. Like he was ad libing the situation.

    I always got the impression that Lindsay Wallace didn't go trick or treating either in the 1978 original.

    Warner Brothers is out of their minds if they're not scrambling to finding someone to write a Nightmare on Elm Street screenplay.

    They need to re-boot FINAL EXAM.

    It was awful. To be fair, if they used the title and made a completely different film, then it maybe ok, if they did a lazy remake that was a paint by numbers of the original, then I would stay well away.

    But, THOSE are the films that NEED remakes - ones with potential but came out flawed.

    Saw it last night and was underwhelmed. There was some great gore but there wasn't a single moment where I was scared or felt any tension. Too many characters and a convoluted storyline. The original is a classic because it kept everything simple. My friend I saw it with liked it more than I did but agreed it wasn't the best of the sequels.

    Haha, well there you go. I thought you might have actually been a fan of the film and I was being cheeky as I really don't care for it at all. The title is great but the movie is a bore fest. Like wago said, these films can make great remakes because you actually have a good chance of doing something much better.

    Saw this tonight and I thought it was the "Force Awakens" of the series, in that it's a nostalgia style film. I would say they went a bit over board in throw backs/easter eggs. I thought the movie was average, perhaps it will go up with more viewings. But I must say, I was on a bigger high when I saw H20 in theaters than I did this one.....

    Thanks

    Only a clip from the original which shows young Michael killing Judith.

    Not judging. But imho, don't really think this film would be appropriate for a 1st grader. Might have to cover her eyes for more than one scene.

    I dont mind her seeing gratuitous gore, but sex or skin is a no-no. I may reconsider taking her to see it. Thanks For what its worth she has seen all the Friday the 13th movies.

    Oh. Just figured the violence would be a factor too. A couple of specific Meyer's scenes with kids involved in this film... As far as the other concern, Friday films (specific entries) had more of the nudity/sex than this particular Halloween film. It's a pretty quick scene here. On a side note, keep her away from the Rob Zombie Halloween's, especially the first one. That film has just about everything ... violence, nudity, sex, rape.
