Halloween Kills it for me
Verified purchase
Oh dear, what can I say? This movie began to lose direction and become messy within the next 30mins. I found this movie quite embarrassing to the Halloween franchise-especially towards the original. It felt like had been written by a low-budget freelance screenwriter and the dialogue was absolutely a joke.
There was one scene when Tommy Doyle (the young lad from the first film in which Laurie Strode baby-sat chases a man with a hospital gown on (no mask I hasten to add) with his lynch mob into a building and corners him. They were dead set that this guy was Michael Myers. So in a panic, the patient jumps to his death from the 6 story building. As the mob gathers around the dead body on the pavement a copper tells them this is not the killer. So good ole' Tommy says-How were we supposed to know? Michael always wears a mask!!! Dah-first Tommy has seen the killer with his own eyes and he stands 6ft 8 and built like a brick-S*** house and this one they chased to his death was 5ft 4 and as shapely as a pumpkin on legs. To be honest it got to a point I thought I wouldn't care if they were hunting down a killer turkey wielding a chainsaw, while Bart and Homer Simpson made a cameo appearance joining the mob. You then wonder why on earth Michael was nicknamed 'The Shape' within this 1hr and 45mins cringe-fest.

It's Halloween not Shakespeare
Verified purchase
Don't understand how some reviews have complained about story line, this a slasher horror not a Shakespeare play. The film does exactly what it is meant to, makes you jump, makes you worry for the predictable victims and makes you wince at the thought of the pain of some of the kills. Yes the story does tend to get a little "over the top" but you would expect it to. I enjoyed it for what it it is and would recommend Halloween fans to have a look.

Time to stop making the Halloween movies now
Verified purchase
I'm a huge fan of the Halloween movies, but I really found this movie diabolical.

The thread of the storylines have been lost over the years. What happened to Laurie's son from H20? How are Laurie's daughters Karen and Jamie related? Where is Laurie's Grandson Stephen, who was her daughter Jamie's son?

This movie started off with the potential to be very promising, but the movie quickly became a farce.

The character of Tommy was just not believable at all.

Laurie and the Cop attempting to analyse why Michael likes to stand at the window, was just a feeble attempt at a storyline. As was the Cop's declaration that Michael wasn't interested in Laurie but rather in "going home" - utter nonsense, given the fact that Michael has always hunted Laurie - psychiatric Hospital scenes of Laurie, then hunting Laurie and her son at the School.

Honestly, if you are a true Halloween fan, avoid this movie, it's a complete mish mash.

Don't forget your nostalgia pill

An aged, retired fellow (let's for the sake of argument call him 'Mike') wakes up one crisp October morning and mulls over the state of his recent stay in a maximum security sanitarium not being entirely conducive to his joints and infernal back pain, so decides checking out is in order. Heading back home, he bumps into old lady (who once wore out the pause button on my Panasonic VHS player back in the '80s with her appearance in the documentaries 'Perfect' and 'Trading Places') who for some reason, won't stop shouting at him and being 'all stabby' with a rather sharp implement. Bemused, Mike who only wished to stop off for a tea and scones break continues on his journey and meets the cast of 'Backdraft' who are busily putting out a fire that he finds himself standing nearby. Obviously, not wishing to get burned Mike walks on, but again is held up by two rude locals - Kurt Russell and Billy Baldwin who take it upon themselves to start giving our hero a right ruddy rollocking with axes and what have you. Poor Mike. After making his escape from these clearly in need of medical assistance townsfolk, he concludes his trip back home only to find two middle aged fellas dressed as pirates sitting in his lounge eating cheese and biscuits. To be fair, Mike isn't too pleased but thanks them anyway for keeping the kitchen clean in his absence and cooks them a lovely plate of warm cookies and milk as gratitude. Which, y'know I wasn't expecting - but certainly gave my heart a warm, happy glow. Surely, this may have been the season of the witch, but I can clearly see old man Mike is cut from the same cloth as the 'Werthers Original' granddad and what a better world he makes for just being in it.

'Halloween Kills' (or 'Halloween 12' if you're mathematically inclined) is a fairly middling entry in this never-ending saga which if honest, pretty much petered out back in 1988 but for some weird reason still seems to be going - even though its starting to resemble a hastily re-animated corpse that's begging to be put of it's misery. The screenplay from 3 (count 'em) writers feels like a 10-minute SNL skit stretched to 90+ minutes with little finesse beyond people doing crazy things for no apparent reason or shouting wildly into the camera in an attempt to convey 'depth' - yet only managing stupidity. The production clearly had a budget of sorts which seems to have been wasted on resurrecting the late Donald Pleasances' character Sam Loomis via make-up trickery in an awkward scene that I presumed was meant to be 'awesome' but sadly amounts to a few teens cosplaying on TikTok. The filmmakers also take great pains to remind the viewer that this is the only set of 'real' sequels to Carpenter's original but seemingly without shame, like the idea of having their cake and eating it too by dropping in so many easter eggs to sequels gone by ('Halloween's III and IV, especially) that my tiny mind was so overwhelmed with numbskull-ery that I had to sink a full bottle of scotch just to block out the banality. Sure, I'm not expecting high art, but the filmmakers are so pompous with their lazy attempt at politics and social commentary - it almost begs to be critiqued harder. Whilst viewing 'Halloween Kills' my mind wandered back to previous 'Halloweens' and amused myself with the fact that the producers have rebooted this series so many times we as an audience actually have 3 versions of 'Halloween II'. Now, I love money too but these guys are seriously taking the biscuit. Well done them.

I rented 'Halloween Kills' through Amazon Prime and the transfer is exceptional with vibrant, punchy audio. Sadly no extra features but the price is extremely good value (and if one is so inclined, I'm sure the 4k physical media edition will include a set of those). All in all, it’s well made junk with little on its mind other than turning a coin for producers who are afraid to try something new with the franchise. I do have one idea for them, but I assume they wouldn't wish to get their Armani suits dirty whilst at the tip.

What a disappointment.
Verified purchase
For fans of the franchise, don't bother with this one. As if the last one wasn't bad enough, this one takes the mob mentality to a whole new level. It fell short of having them chanting "U -S - A!", but not by much.

The plotline was poor and the killings were so unrealistic as to be annoying. How many times can a guy be shot, stabbed and beaten before he has to die? Then to try and suggest he was somehow supernatural!!?? Ugh!

What was the point of Jamie Lee Curtis even being in this film? How ridiculous was it that the cop said HE was going to be the one to kill Michael? He spent the rest of the film in the hospital. Just annoying.

Definitely would NOT recommend this film.

Felt like a comedy
Verified purchase
The 1st film (2018) was heavy and hit the right notes. Actually truly felt like a proper horror film. This sequel took everything backwards to silly early 2000 horror films. Literally the film revolves around just the town's folk ganging up to kill Michael but acting stupid in the process. Now don't get me wrong, I love silly horror films (especially early 2000 ones), but was expecting a more gripping experience of the 2018 reboot. I'd give two stars instead of one just because I can still somewhat enjoy the stillness.

Worst Halloween movie by quite a margin
Verified purchase
Did you think it would be impossible to make a worse Halloween movie than Rob Zombie's atrocious misfires? Think again!

It must be quite difficult to make the very worst Halloween movie of them all, given how terrible most of the semi-anonymous sequels are. This absolute car crash of a film has managed that feat with aplomb. I sat through this disgusting heap of a turd but that doesn't mean that you have to! Yes, I know you're a fan, and horror fans will put up with a lot, but this waste of time movie will just make you angry and shout at the screen. The stupidity on display is mesmerising.

The premise is rubbish, to be honest: it's set immediately after the last one (just like the forgettable Halloween II followed on from the masterful original) and Michael is unsurprisingly loose once again in Haddonfield - possibly the most clueless small town in American history - and is, as usual, hell bent on killing randoms for no given reason. Big surprise there. It actually does not in any way matter who 90% of the characters in this film are. They are just excuses for self-consciously elaborate kills. Ironically, the character you DO get to know are the ones you'd rather see at the end of Michael's knife, given how 'pantomime clown' they all are.

Jamie Lee Curtis lies in bed for most of this, lots of anonymous characters shriek 'Evil dies TONIGHT!' before meeting semi-creative deaths, and a whole lot of people run up and down hospital stairways a whole lot of the time.

Every character is an idiot. Every death is pointless and grotesque but not in a particularly satisfying way for the horror fans, and the whole enterprise feels more like mid season of a bottom tier reality TV show than a suspenseful, cinema-ready horror classic. Tommy Doyle is back! He's an idiot! The nurse from the first film is back, too! Also an inexplicable idiot. The little girl from the original Halloween is here! Guess what? On it goes.

The filmmakers, whilst forgetting to write a script of any functional use whatsoever, have also decided that this is the middle 'chapter' of a trilogy, so if you're unfortunate enough to end up sitting through this rubbish, you'll have another two hours of it to go through in a year or two. You already know they won't kill off Micheal Myers, because why would they? It's like killing Batman in terms of revenue for the studios. They know that people like me will, against our better judgement, still pay money to watch this crap in the faint hope that it'll be merely 'bad' and not 'horrifically, depressingly awful'.

Hey, the music is pretty good, but then it's just a re-recorded version of the original (superior) score anyway. Would John Carpenter have made a better fist of this miserable movie had he been given the director's chair rather than just the soundtrack suite? It's doubtful, to be honest, but one thing is clear: Micheal Myers is one 'iconic' horror villain who needs to shuffle off for good now. It's not scary, it's not even that manipulative, and it's not sure what it wants to say about anything so it just shouts and runs up and down the stairs. Avoid, unless you hate life.

Pretty awful…
Verified purchase
Just watched this film tonight and I must say it is a major let down. Always nice to see the legend Jamie Lee Curtis on screen but not even she could rescue this “godforsaken” tragedy of a movie. Not going to give any spoilers but there are two scenes which really are quite ridiculous: one of them involves a man trying to take on Michael Myers with a baseball bat; the other involves a man trying to strangle him with a stethoscope. This is the same Michael Myers that has been stabbed, riddled with bullets, ran over by trucks, burned alive and has still survived and some wise guy thinks he will try his luck with a stethoscope around his neck??? Hey, why not just try tickling him to death with a feather or shooting him with a potato gun???

In all seriousness, they have done the Halloween movies to death now and I think even the most “hardcore” halloween fans must be getting fed up now of these movies just going on and on and on. I think it’s time that Michael Myers hung up his mask for his good and went on permanent vacation.
