Halloween Kills

Halloween Kills ★★½

What a messy, underwhelming film.

The titular kills are shockingly violent and Michael really does feel like a force, but the script - particularly its commentary on mob mentality, which is a massive subplot here - feels like a child wrote it.

Also keeping Laurie off-screen for 80% of the film and confining her to a hospital bed basically confirms this is a filler entry because Universal wanted to milk it for 3 films when there was only the creative for 2.

Still one of the better Halloween films overall but that really just shows you how few truly good entries there are in the series.
