    • Saw it yesterday. The first half is great, the second half is badly paced and goes on too long. Lots of good moments scattered throughout, but there was too much going on and I got bored. This has to be the goriest HALLOWEEN film yet and Michael scores a massive body count. I'd imagine there's going to be people complaining about certain things. Firefighter scene is one of the best in the film.
      Why would anybody watch a scum show like Videodrome? Why did you watch it, Max?

      • I was barely entertained by the first half, and the second half sucked. This makes the 2018 film look like a masterpiece. And yeah, I get there's more coming, but getting a little annoyed with, "Oh, we don't need an ending, it's not over in this film".

        • I just saw a fan edit of two "Halloween" movies named "The Night of Samhain". It was something different, but I don't know if I'll watch it a second time. I think I'd prefer to watch "Halloween III: Season of the Witch" and "Halloween 6" The Producer's Cut instead, which this fan edit was a mash-up of.

          • I genuinely liked the 2018 movie, this one, nope. Didn't work for me. I wanted it to but the second half is a mess. I agree with Matt in that it started off alright but then it went in too many directions at once. I did like the score though and a couple of the murder set pieces were decent.

            • I didn't like it either.

              Halloween Kills (USA, 2021) [DCP] – 1.5/5
              Disappointing follow-up to 2018’s rather good Halloween revival. This is an ugly, monotonous kill marathon with no suspense, no characterization, and surprisingly almost no Jamie Lee Curtis. Even Carpenter’s score sounds dull and overly modern. The plot has a bit of potential but it’s badly wasted.

              • bummer... so the bad reviews were legit. a friend of mine saw it @sitges festival last month and said it's one of the worst of the series (on par with halloween resurrection and rob zombies halloweens).

                • Apparently the Halloween Kills novelization, which I didn't know existed until this morning, ties things into the Cult Of Thorn.

                  • I watched this last week, and I don't disagree with anyone's assessment.

                    You would imagine after 40+ years of slasher films, Hollywood could create characters that possessed IQ's above 70. I'm not a big fan of H20, but at least the characters in that one had sense enough to do the one thing that should bring about the demise of any killer, regardless of how resilient he is. Maybe the writers are no longer only implying that Michael is something other than human. Regardless, those fighting Michael have to assume he can be defeated, otherwise why try? I know he's been shot dozens of times and stabbed and set on fire, but I'm gonna try my luck hitting him with a baseball bat!

                    And I know she survived the attack, but when running from Michael - who at best attains the speed of a brisk walk - in a park, why in the world did the one female character "hide" in a place that prevented escape rather than simply doubling back (at a moderate jogging pace), easily exiting the area?

                    Far scarier than this movie was trying to add Peacock Premium to Fire TV (which I just chronicled in another thread) before being able to view the flick.

                    Someone told me last week (and maybe this has already been mentioned elsewhere in this topic) there will be a final film in this trilogy, HALLOWEEN ENDS. Would that such a promise came true...
                    VHS will never die!

                        • Extended cut - wise move, considering most people wouldn't want to watch the theatrical cut again.
                          Why would anybody watch a scum show like Videodrome? Why did you watch it, Max?
