Star ratings are stupid but i love stats.
An absolutely fascinating failure.
I've just finished reading the book and I was still baffled at points.
Small moments hint at potential brilliance and there is some great casting but trying to fit the whole novel into a single film is ultimately insane.
There are some truly awful choices too - what were they thinking making Baron Harkonnen like...that?
I want to read absolutely everything about the making of this film.
4K UHD looks beautiful.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
There's definitely been a shift to gory kills rather than the anticipation of big scares but I still really liked it.
I wish they had cut the hospital crowd sequence and some of the returning characters from the original felt slightly barrel-scraped but that opening was superb - just the right level of fan-service to show they understand why people love Halloween.
Michael Myers has never looked cooler or scarier!
