Joseph Hagan’s review published on Letterboxd:
Just seen Halloween Kills a couple of minutes ago at my local theatre and I have to say I was very disappointed with this movie.
The story is that Halloween Kills takes a couple of hours of the previous film where Michael Myers is being burned alive at Laurie Strode's house. Off course Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie Strode, Judy Greer returns as Karen and the granddaughter returns as well.
The three of them are in hospital with several cuts and injuries, and it turns out Michael Myers is still alive. The gore and violence are amazing especially during the burning house sequence and the home invasion scene, but the storyline is all over the place.
Instead of Michael Myers coming to kill Laurie, the whole town of Haddonfield gather together to kill Michael Myers and put an end to his terror. I wish this movie didn't had a mob of people I just wanted more Michael and Laurie sequences together.
In the movie you're introduced to new characters Tommy Doyle who is played by Anthony Michael Hall who people might know him as Brian from The Breakfast Club.
Kyle Richards returns as Lindsay Wallace from the original movie she does a good performance and so does Jamie Lee Curtis obviously.
The problems with Halloween Kills is that the film does become very lazy in terms of plot and characters. In all honesty Halloween kills isn't a great name for a movie sequel to Halloween. Obviously Michael Myers is un Killable character that can't be killed.
What I didn't like about the film is that Karen is waving Michael's mask around and I didn't like that at all. It's a very dark movie it is difficult to see what's going on especially with scenes in the hospital and in the streets.
Some people will enjoy the movie, I didn't it's just my opinion. David Gordon Green should have been more creative with the movie but it wasn't good. Overall disappointing.
