So from now on I have decided to do my reviews as videos, I just decided this will be more fun for me, and more time efficient as well as easier to get my points and feelings across swiftly. So was Halloween Kills a cut above the rest? If you have 12 minutes and 36 seconds you can find out what I think and listen to me not try to sound absolutely horrible while doing so! That in itself should be worth the listen, right?
The opening night event of this years Popcorn Frights Film Festival saw them host the world premiere of Haunt, the new film from Scott Beck and Bryan Woods, the writers of the mega hit A Quiet Place. The packed house was treated to what will surely be one of the must see films on every horror fan’s watch list this October.
The horror gods are smiling upon us because it is October and yes we actually have a Halloween film in theaters and even more importantly we have a GOOD Halloween movie in theaters. Not since 1989 has a Michael Myers film been released IN October, I would say 1995’s the Curse of Michael Myers deserves some credit as it was released at the very end of September in ’95, but even still, that is a LONG time. So yes, this is a big deal, Michael Myers is back, in October, in a good Halloween film. You know what, let’s not even call it good, because this is easily a GREAT Halloween film. I won’t really get into the plot of the film because if you are reading this you have probably already seen the film and or the trailers. I will talk about why this movie worked for me though.
