This was fine. Read this first for a book club, then watched the film. Very mid. It's very true to the book; there's more left out than added. The rats were the best part. Kind of wish this was as gruesome as the novella, but whatever.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I will say, I don't like the script. Truth be told, anything that isn't Michael Myers stalking and killing people or Laurie merking people is pretty fucking trash. The whole high school side story literally built to a phone being disabled for one character.
That said? I enjoyed this film. They play some awesome nostalgic moments in here, making this an awesome book-end to the first film.
And FWIW, this is one of those films its best to not see trailers for. They really did give away a lot of dope shit in those spots.
