Serving as a direct sequel to the 1978 John Carpenter classic we pick up 40 years later following Laurie Strode who has become obsessed with the return of Michael Myers. The events in 1978 have caused several years of PTSD for Ms. Strode. She has become a survivalist of sorts over the years and is essentially the woman who cried wolf for Haddonfield. Jamie Lee Curtis returns to the role that made her a household name and she is joined by her daughter Karen (Judy Greer) and granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) Michael Myers finds his self-facing three generation of Strode women who have been affected by his attacks from 40 years ago.
In the end of the 2018 Halloween Michael is seemingly “killed” by the women and they escape in the truck of a passing driver. The last shot we see is of Allyson clutching the knife of Michael Myers. I personally feel there is no need to do a sequel to this film, but the ending was rather abrupt and of course money is the deciding factor at the end of the day. A sequel could focus on how Allyson was affected by her encounter with Michael. Perhaps a body was never recovered from the fire and Laurie begins prepping her granddaughter for combat with the boogeyman.
