    Halloween Kills

    ★★★

    First thoughts: it’s not much of a film but I liked it as a slasher and Michael Myers is at his most savage here.  This Michael even makes the Rob Zombie version look tame.  I love the look, the mask, and the walk and how methodically efficient he is as a killing machine.  He’s absolutely ruthless here and the kills and gore are top notch.  There are some moments in this that are going to go down as iconic for…

    ★½

    Sheesh. This movie is a mess. It has a 137 minute run time and feels like a total rush job.

    This movie is more of a 6 to me, but I'm bumping it up to a light 7 simply on the strength of the last 30 minutes or so which I thought were awesome. I wouldn't say Malignant is particularly scary, but it's chilling enough to satisfy most horror fans and that action/horror finale is worth the wait.

    7/10 (Highly Enjoyable)
