‘Halloween’

After being committed for 17 years, Michael Myers, now a grown man and still very dangerous, is mistakenly released from the mental institution where he was committed as a 10-year-old. He immediately returns to his hometown of Haddonfield, Ill., where he wants to find his younger sister, Laurie. Anyone who crosses his path is in mortal danger. Starring Malcolm McDowell and directed by Rob Zombie from a script by Zombie from John Carepenter’s 1978 original, the movie is rated R for violence. It opens today at Alderwood Mall, Everett, Monroe, Marysville, Mountlake, Meridian, Oak Tree, Varsity, Woodinville, Cascade Mall and Oak Harbor.
