A well-needed rebirth
1 October 2018 | by dopefishieSee all my reviews

Pros: The puppets are evil again. The acting. The script. The special effects. The puppets are evil again.

Cons: Lack of suspense, dread, tension. Overuse of comedy (some of the comedy was great!) The puppeteering was better than in most of the sequels but still not up to the standards of the first two films.

Overall: A well-needed rebirth. The best direction the franchise has headed since the second movie. The new creative team has a lot of enthusiasm and talent. And it shows!
