With hollow eyes and sagging cheeks, the flabby white mask of Michael Myers is horror's great blank slate.Decades after John Carpenter's slasher landmark, David Gordon Green has resurrected the faceless boogeyman of "Halloween" and set him loose on another Halloween night, 40 years later. As if to draw closer to the original (and to ignore the nine sequels and reboots in between), this "Halloween" has simply taken Carpenter's 1978 title.While Green's "Halloween," which he penned with Danny McBride and Jeff Fradley, has faithfully adopted much of what so resonated in Carpenter's genre-creating film the stoic killer, the gruesome executions, the suburban nightmares what makes his "Halloween" such a thrill is how it deviates from its long-ago predecessor. Before curtly dismissing them, Strode insists their investigation into Myers is pointless.It's a message peppered throughout "Halloween" with clear reference to today (and to some of the earlier "Halloween" installments that sought to understand Michael).
