    I didn't like it either.

    Halloween Kills (USA, 2021) [DCP] – 1.5/5
    Disappointing follow-up to 2018’s rather good Halloween revival. This is an ugly, monotonous kill marathon with no suspense, no characterization, and surprisingly almost no Jamie Lee Curtis. Even Carpenter’s score sounds dull and overly modern. The plot has a bit of potential but it’s badly wasted.

    bummer... so the bad reviews were legit. a friend of mine saw it @sitges festival last month and said it's one of the worst of the series (on par with halloween resurrection and rob zombies halloweens).

    Apparently the Halloween Kills novelization, which I didn't know existed until this morning, ties things into the Cult Of Thorn.

    I watched this last week, and I don't disagree with anyone's assessment.

    You would imagine after 40+ years of slasher films, Hollywood could create characters that possessed IQ's above 70. I'm not a big fan of H20, but at least the characters in that one had sense enough to do the one thing that should bring about the demise of any killer, regardless of how resilient he is. Maybe the writers are no longer only implying that Michael is something other than human. Regardless, those fighting Michael have to assume he can be defeated, otherwise why try? I know he's been shot dozens of times and stabbed and set on fire, but I'm gonna try my luck hitting him with a baseball bat!

    And I know she survived the attack, but when running from Michael - who at best attains the speed of a brisk walk - in a park, why in the world did the one female character "hide" in a place that prevented escape rather than simply doubling back (at a moderate jogging pace), easily exiting the area?

    Far scarier than this movie was trying to add Peacock Premium to Fire TV (which I just chronicled in another thread) before being able to view the flick.

    Someone told me last week (and maybe this has already been mentioned elsewhere in this topic) there will be a final film in this trilogy, HALLOWEEN ENDS. Would that such a promise came true...
    VHS will never die!

    Extended cut - wise move, considering most people wouldn't want to watch the theatrical cut again.
    Why would anybody watch a scum show like Videodrome? Why did you watch it, Max?
