Typically the longer the wait between sequels, the worse the finished product turns out, but we've turned a corner lately wherein a deep, abiding love of the original has prevailed in these various remake/reboot/belated-sequels. Whether it's The Force Awakens or Mary Poppins Returns, fealty to the original has churned out some decent flicks in the last few years, including last year's Halloween, the sequel to Halloween.

This David Gordon Green-directed instant slasher classic was better than it had any right to be, which leads the folks over at Screen Junkies to take it relatively easy on the film in their latest Honest Trailer. Yes, they point out the obvious fact that no one was expecting much from a movie written by Kenny Powers, but still, it took us all by surprise in the end.

I'm not sure if this will end up counting as a reboot, since a sequel is already planned—and well set up by this flick's ending, my sorta one big gripe with this movie. It's definitely a sequel to the original, definitely ignores everything since 1978, but will now become the first in a new franchise, I guess? It's all very confusing. This is why we need numbers. Like it or not, this should've been Halloween 11.
