review by
Mike Haberfelner

It's Halloween: A series of murders shatters the small town of Panhandle, Middle of Nowhere, USA, and Doctor Sam Loomis III (David Dietz) is sure it's Michael Myers (Brian Ceponis), who has only recently escaped from the asylum. Thing is, nobody believes him, least of all Gosberg (Adam Caplinger), the detective working with him on the case - so when after quite some hunting down all sorts of tracks, Loomis faces Myers, gun drawn, Gosberg shoots Loomis in the shoulder to save what he considers "just a kid dressed up for Halloween" from a fanatic. A fatal mistake because Michael Myers has no problem stabbing his "saviour" to death in a heartbeat, before targeting a house in the neighbourhood in which he (rightfully) suspects some naughty babysitters. And now it's up to Loomis to muster up enough strength to go after Myers - but if he succeeds, will he be able to fight him with his shattered shoulder?

 

By no means the re-invention of the wheel, this film does nevertheless accomplish what it has set out to do, to make a to the point hommage to/fanfilm of the original Halloween series, with nothing added and little lost. So fans will of course find everything they always loved about the series and will smile about how well this one deciphers and follows the formula, they will enjoy the easter eggs, and probably nod knowingly every now and again. So again, not the re-invention of the wheel - but a rather serviceable wheel all the same ...
