User Reviews

You can't fault them for trying, but it's not good.
25 September 2018 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

The people behind this film tried to give audiences what they wanted, slasher movies had been big news, and the Halloween franchise seemed to fit well for that genre. The opening scenes I really liked, indeed they're the best part of the movie, slick, menacing, and that music is just incredible. Reality TV was still very popular, and you can see why they came up with this plot.

Sadly that's the end of the good news, from there on it's downhill, I personally disliked the story, they had no qualms about cheapening the legacy of the great Halloween. It's tacky, the production, plot, characters lack any sense of quality, only the music stands out well. The behaviours of all characters are nonsensical, you keep saying to yourself 'would they really do that?'

They tried, but failed. 4/10
