I might be a horror fan, but not one of those that is ready to just gobble up any old shit. Witness the scope of the horror wasteland on Netflix and Amazon, littered with cheap knockoffs of whatever happens to be trending. For the last few years it’s been zombies or demonic possession, none of them fresh, with scripts that seemingly have come straight from a bad writer’s template. Some horror movies are different, usually those made by people plugged into the genre, who understand it, and have more self-respect than to simply churn out the next Exorcism of [Insert Female Name]. So when a new Halloween movie was revealed to be in the works a couple of years ago, my reaction was pretty tepid.
