Halloween (2007)

Halloween (2007)

Michael showed signs of being a psychopath even at the age of 10-year-old, where he murdered a school bully, her sister and her boyfriend, and her mother's lover. after a long trial, he was found guilty and sent to the Sanitarium under the care of a child psychologist Dr. Loomis. Michael became obsessed with his masks, closing himself from everyone. for the next 15 years he remained withdrawn and Dr. Loomis decided to close Michael's case. later while being transfer to a closure with maximum security, Michael escaped by killing everyone on the way. he arrived back at his old home and started the massacre.

the film wasn't exactly scary nor realistic, but it was gory enough to spook. the child version of Michael however, was much more believing than the masked version. the part where he stalked his prey and be seen with the stalking itself, appearing and disappearing by walking away wasn't quite what we expected. especially the walking away part, which obviously removed all the thrills that was anticipated. despite being the iconic character of the Halloween sequels, Michael was less than what was expected. it was a typical slasher film, with a soulless and mindless man behind the expressionless mask that left us with no impressions at all.
