    5 STARS! Sets a bold new standard for slasher movie excellence; McDowell reinvents Michael Myers and makes the character his own.

    Hockey mask? WTF are you retarded? Myers wears an old Ronald Reagan mask spray painted white, geez you moron get your movies right. Google the hockey mask and you might actually learn something today other then breathing.
