    Halloween III: Season of the Witch

    ★★★

    Just noticed I've reached over a thousand followers during the past few weeks while I haven't had chance to write any reviews, so thanks for the follows 👍

    I really need to get my Horroctober list finished! 😆 So, for those who don't know, I watched every film I had lined up except for the final two at the very end of the month (Censor and the director's cut of Midsommar), but had started falling behind with my reviews early…

    Zombieland: Double Tap

    ★★★

    It's not quite a Homer, but taking a decade to make a sequel does feel pretty slow-moving 🧟

    Zombieland: Double Tap is not as good as the original but it's still fun, albeit a lot more of the same, following its predecessor's tried and tested list of rules.

    The returning cast fall back into their roles surprisingly seamlessly after such a long time away, and Rosario Dawson and Zoey Deutch are great new additions.

    I'm not the first to say…
