*This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!*

“He needs to die!”

Halloween Kills released in theaters and on Peacock on October 15th 2021. The film stars Jamie Lee Curtis, Andi Matichak, Anthony Michael Hall, Judy Greer, Cameron Elam and Kyle Richards. It runs for approximately an hour and forty-five minutes.

Michael Myers is back after escaping from Laurie Strode’s trap as the residents of Haddonfield work together to stop him once and for all.

Here is the trailer:

Halloween Kills has finally arrived with tons of bloody kills, but is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Plenty of gory kills to look forward to.

The film delivers in this department. If you are looking for lots of blood and gore, you will not be disappointed. Michael Myers is ruthless and unforgiving and he has quite a few inventive kills this time around.

Characters to root for.

The residents in town really work together to put forth a valiant effort against Michael and I was rooting for a lot of them. Sure, they may be out of their league, but I thoroughly enjoyed the interactions between all of the characters and of course it’s always wonderful to see Jamie Lee Curtis on screen.

The Cons:

Messy plot.

I almost felt like they shot several pieces of the movie at different times and then just stuck them all together and hoped it would work. The first half of the movie took a while to get going for me, but I did think the second half was much stronger.

I also thought the film lost some of its edge this time around. The iconic music was present, but I wanted a little bit more suspense with Michael’s kills and some of them felt really over-the-top and almost silly, but it was still a lot of fun.

So am I in or out?

I’m in about 75 percent…

Every horror and Halloween fan should absolutely watch this movie. There were some really entertaining moments and you will get plenty of gory kills to keep you invested. I had some issues with the plot and the overall pacing of the movie, which was slightly frustrating, but I still enjoyed my watch overall.

I hope you enjoyed the review and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on Halloween Kills in the comments section below. Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!
