Halloween is a 2018 American slasher film directed by David Gordon Green and written by Green, Jeff Fradley, and Danny McBride. It is the eleventh installment in the Halloween film series, and a direct sequel to the 1978 film of the same name, while effecting a retcon of all previous sequels. The plot follows a post-traumatic Laurie Strode who prepares to face Michael Myers in a final showdown on Halloween night, forty years after she escaped his killing spree. Jamie Lee Curtis and Nick Castle reprise their respective roles as Strode and Myers, with stuntman James Jude Courtney also portraying Myers. The film also stars Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Will Patton, and Virginia Gardner.
After failing to develop a new Halloween film in time, Dimension Films lost the production rights for a sequel, which reverted to Miramax, which then joined with Blumhouse Productions. In May 2017, a new installment was officially announced, with original co-creator John Carpenter's involvement as a composer, executive
A Predator ship crash-lands on Earth. Army Ranger sniper Quinn McKenna and his team are attacked by the Predator on a hostage retrieval mission. McKenna incapacitates the Predator and has its armor mailed off. At the behest of government agent Will Traeger, he is captured and held for examination. Traeger also takes the Predator to a lab for experimentation and observation, recruiting evolutionary biologist Casey Bracket to study it. The Predator awakes, breaks out of its bonds, kills lab workers, but spares Bracket before leaving.
McKenna is bussed off with a group of other government captives, including ex-Marine Gaylord "Nebraska" Williams, military veterans Coyle and Baxley, helicopter pilot Nettles, and Lynch, another ex-Marine. Seeing the Predator escape from the lab firsthand, they take over the bus. Taking Bracket with them, they head over to McKenna's estranged wife, Emily, where he expects to find the Predator armor he mailed off. However, McKenna's autistic son Rory has gone trick-or-treating while wearing this armor in hopes of avoiding detection from bullies.

Welcome to my new "reviews" section of the site. I'll be doing album/cinema reviews. So, onto my first review.
I've recently watched "In the Deep" (aka 47 Meters Down). Before I review this, The history of this movie is strange as in how it's being brought to the surface. "In the Deep" went straight to DVD in the summer of 2016, August to be exact but it is being released in theaters in the summer of 2017. Studios are trying to capitalize on the success of "The Shallows" with "47 Meters Down". So, a studio bought the rights and changed the title for a theatrical release.
With all that said, let us review this thing.
"47 Meters Down" stars Mandy Moore and Claire Holt. The other actors are good but these two are the notables in the movie. So, two girls (Moore, Holt) are in Mexico on a trip. Holt travels the world, while Moore is a safe person. They are both talked into going on a cage dive in great white shark waters. Holt is all for this while Moore is reluctant but she agrees to go.
So, Mr. Wednesday 13 has a new record out... FINALLY. I can never have enough W13 in the playlist. I and the daughter love his music and we always go see him when he is in Colorado, which will be June 18 2017...
I've started this new website and reviews of both music and cinema is something I'm going to be doing. My first will be W13's new album "Condolences". It's been 3 years since his last effort "Monsters of the Universe" and it is a great follow up for him.
As always W13 grows from his last album to this one and this one is a little darker than the last, not lyric wise but music wise. We still get the kickass campy song "Cruel To You" but the rest are full of great music as well. I'm doing a review of each song and you can preview them below.
