Halloween Kills

Halloween Kills ★★★½

Sometimes all I want is to see is a man going round slaughtering people left right and centre and that's exactly what I got with Halloween Kills for the most part. It's brutal at times and it's ever so satisfying to watch.

The story itself isn't so good and as a middle chapter of a trilogy it really doesn't do that much in the grand scheme of things but it's still a really enjoyable film nonetheless. I just wish I left feeling more satisfied

I can easily get past characters doing stupid things and making decisions for these kills to happen. Stuff like that doesn't bother me for these kind of horror films but the real flaws lie elsewhere. I like the film also for handling the topic of vigilante justice and mob mentality

Everyone in this film is fine. Everyone does a decent job but I don't exactly care about the characters that much apart from Allyson and Laurie who have been the standout of the films so far. Big John and Little John are a great addition to the movie as well. Jamie Lee Curtis is wasted in the film but I guess it's fine since she will obviously be much more involved in the next film.

Some of the death scenes are poorly done (filmed and edited) especially the ones in the last 15 minutes.

The ending was well done although I would have preferred how it ended in the original script.

The film isn't high art but it's highly entertaining and this new timeline is best of the Halloween timelines so far which may not be saying that much since the Halloween franchise isn't anything special.
