Halloween review – a slasher classic you just can't kill off

"Halloween" made a killing in North America, earning $77.5 million when the slasher film launched in 3,928 locations.

Curtis has returned to the role that made her famous in the original Halloween in 1978, with one-time babysitter Laurie Strode now a psychologically damaged grandmother who has lived her life preparing for a showdown with masked psychopathic killer Michael Myers.

Halloween, the reboot of the 1978 classic, has made a killing at the U.S. box office, raking in over $77m (£59m) during its opening weekend.

Halloween, created by legendary writer and director, John Carpenter, is still a smashing success in theaters, even after a whopping four decades. Of course, last week Box Office Pro and others overshot the expectation with the call that Halloween would gross $80 million, basically tying with Venom's attendance record of 9.1 million people. It also landed the second-highest debut for an October release, set earlier this month by "Venom" with $80 million. The picture represents another win for Blumhouse Productions and its distributor, Comcast Corp.'s Universal Pictures.

Tesla’s Newest, Cheapest Model 3 Sedan Is Coming
Although he's promised that Model 3 will be out by the end of this year , some vehicle industry experts are dubious he'll deliver. That's about $4,000 less than the starting price of the sedan that went on sale previous year , excluding incentives or options.

The horror flick beat an opening weekend record for slasher movies set by the 2009 reboot of "Friday the 13th", which brought in $40.6 million. Over the weekend the film opened to a massive $75M haul making it the biggest opening for any Halloween film ever. "Halloween" is now Curtis' biggest opening to date, as well as the best horror opening with a female lead. "Halloween" also notched the second-best start for an R-rated horror film following "It's" $123 million launch.

The film now has 80 percent on Rotten Tomatoes and a 7.6 on IMDB. On Thursday, the prolific producer apologized and said he had misspoken about a topic he felt passionate about.

"This woman faces the beast in a very clever, beautifully filmed, well-acted, taut, terrifying 90 minutes in a movie theatre, at a time when the world feels out of control". Directed by George Tillman Jr. from a screenplay by Tina Mabry and Audrey Wells, The Hate U Give stars Amandla Stenberg, Regina Hall, Russell Hornsby, Issa Rae, Sabrina Carpenter, Algee Smith, Lamar Johnson, Anthony Mackie, K.J. Apa, and Common. The film started a limited run October 5.
