Now that Christmas has wrapped up I've taken down the tree and all the jolly decorations that we put up around our house. Once the kids have gone to bed, I'm going to unwind from the hustle and bustle of the holidays by chilling out watching a scary movie. HALLOWEEN is now available via Digital and on January 15, 2019 will be available to view by 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and cable On Demand.

Set forty years after the events of the classic 1978 horror movie, this 2018 similarly titled movie forgets previous sequels were ever made and focuses on what became of Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) in the decades following her narrow escape from killer Michael Myers in the original film. HALLOWEEN (2018) begins with Laurie now living in a heavily guarded home on the edge of Haddonfield, the town where her first brutal encounter with the masked serial killer murder took place. Even though decades have passed since their initial encounter and Myers is locked up in a high-security mental institution, she is still nervous about his potential return.

Of course being imprisoned isn't going to stop the character who inspired the "slasher film" genre of movies from making a comeback. Myers continues his murderous ways when a bus transfer goes horribly wrong. He heads back to Haddonfield seeking to continue the chaos from his 1978 killing spree. This leads to a terrifying showdown between the deranged killer and Laurie … but this time she's ready for him!
