Ben’s review published on Letterboxd:
Much like how Infinity War was a Thanos movie, Halloween Kills was a Michael Myers. Before you say well duh, I mean that we watch him persevere. It’s his story and it’s brutal. You feel his evil rage through the screen. He’s infected the town of Haddonfield and they are completely under his thumb. They can try to rise up against him, but it’s pointless. I loved every minute of this film. So much that I put it in my top 3 Halloween films. It felt deeply rooted in the past with a campy vibe that worked for me. Carpenter and co brought their A game for the score. The writing isn’t exactly perfect, but it hit all the right notes for me. I could hardly catch my breath with how fast the pace moved. This is exactly what I needed from a sequel. The Halloween III masks were just the icing on the cake.
