Good Not Great
31 October 2019 | by truemythmediaSee all my reviews

Sometimes when you want to watch a horror film you want something truly horrifying, and other times you just want something silly to throw on in the background to laugh at. This film is certainly not as good as the original "Halloween", but it is a fun slasher flick with some fun kills and, towards the end, some genuinely creepy (yet over the top) moments. If you go into this movie with middling expectations, you'll probably enjoy yourself; if you want something substantial, try something else.
