great film, unfortunately i dont have much to say about it because it does a great enough job of making itself known. hard to believe a film this great came from hollywood in 2019. third act was immaculate but the second act being mostly just "more info the viewer will need to understand this character and his motivations" brings it down a tiny bit.
this film was just weird. weird plot with hardly anything fully explained that instead relies on the viewer completely forgetting that the reason the first Halloween films were scary is because they were grounded in reality, with no magic or witchcraft involved. i liked seeing Halloween (1978) on the television. i do kind of wish their idea of a Halloween themed anthology series was able to continue, it sounds like a great idea.
yes spoonfeed me the plot peele mm yummy i want more spoonfuls of what youre saying i dont understand mmmm SPELL IT OUT FOR ME I DONT GET IT also if youre scared by this movie thats hilarious what a horrible film i thought his sophomore effort would be better than the snoozefest get out was but at least that film had a good screenplay, this was just bad, i knew coming out that its the type of film this site would eat alive
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
one of the best horror films in recent years, not necessarily because of scare-factor (are horror films even scary anymore?) but because this film oozes creativity. its a fantastic idea that could have just been jump scare after jump scare or turned into some sort of haunted house filled with traps nonsense. i enjoyed how many times i had to change my mind when it came to who i should root for here. also even though i liked the ending mostly i dont like how it kind of shoehorns a sequel in.
