i could have stayed in for “halloween” (watched it and…)

i love spontaneous situations.
when someone tells me to put my clothes on because we going somewhere.
this is by car or paying for my uber.
don’t call me to tell me get on the sketchy mta late night.
well that was my straight home wolf i haven’t seen in months!
we spoke the other day and i told him how blah i’ve been.
he bought two tickets to see the new “halloween” for a late night showing.
i wanted to see it since the trailer

so let’s get into the movie

now i love jamie lee curtis.
she’s one of my favorite scream queens.
i love all the movies i’ve seen her in.
i have nothing bad to say about my activia bae.

THE MOVIE WAS UNDERWHELMING THO

i didn’t really like it.
i found myself getting bored af while watching.
my first issue was the pacing of the movie.
it seemed to move really fast and scenes didn’t connect for me.
i’m gonna post some things i had questions about.
potential spoilers,
but i THINK i’ve found a new way to do it without spoiling for anyone.
stop reading past this point if you didn’t see the movie.

ok go.

when he killed those two reporters,
how tf did he know where they were?
and how did he know to look in their trunk to get his mask?

they could have left out most of the black kid and the babysitter.
it ran too long.

some of the deaths were just “deaths”.
like he walked into random folks houses and killed them.
they didn’t have any connection within the story.

so the doctor went crazy because michael was crazy?
why did michael even kill his number 1 fan?

the grand daughter’s acting wasn’t terrifying enough.
when i watch a horror movie,
i want to feel terror.
the only time i felt terror for her is when she was in the backseat with michael.

some of the death scenes were brutal.
it was like a contest of who could kill someone the worst.

there was no “first” showdown between laurie and michael.
like a:

…type of situation that made us all clap.
she had a better one in h20:

i did enjoy seeing michael one last time (?),
as he is an iconic slasher legend,
but i didn’t care for this movie.
i could’ve waited for it to hit bluray tbh.
i’m sure you might feel different or even the same.
so i had to ask if you’ve seen it:

What are your thoughts on the new Halloween?

  1. At this point, I really don’t care about the movie anymore. once I stay the Rob zombie Halloween. How it all started. I didn’t care what happen after that.

  2. NOTHING will top the original. To this day I still can’t watch that movie alone. I saw it so young and it traumatized me (lol).
    Everyone has “their take” on these classic films, and they need to stop. Just leave them alone, please.
    No more Halloween, Nightmare on Elm Street, or Friday The 13th movies. Time to reinvent the genre, and make new characters.

      1. Exactly! It was psychological, and had very little gore in it.
        Like one minute he’s there, the next he’s gone…then he pops up again right behind you.
        So good!

    1. 70’s horror films fucked me up bad! Halloween, Carrie, and The Exorcist screwed up my sleep cycle for a while. Hollywood has lost it’ creativity. The real creatives are being pushed out by trust fund babies with zero talent. Netflix and the other streaming services are taking over.

  3. Well, they have no originality. Look aylt how they keep remaking Stephen King movies all over again.

    Even the popularity of Stranger Things was unmerited because it was a bunch of 80s movie cliches one after the next. How it became so popular is beyond me.

    They have been feeding people the same thing for years and years and it’s lackluster. Michael Myers is tired. He’s been done and over, Leatherface, Freddy Kruger, Jason…all done to death (no pun).

    The only thing they do is add shocking deaths. They don’t know how to scare because they believe blood and guts are scary. The majority of the world is so desensitized they look at real human deaths without even blinking.

    How to really scare people is to give them a little to let their mind wonder. They will torment themselves.

    You should have known better Jamari, (though I’m glad you got out of the house.)

    For some reason people get a kick out of all these brainless superhero films they keep handing to nonfan writers and remaking ever classic into a modern mess for some reason but I think since the movies serve as escapism, people watch it. Theyve programmed people so we’ll, they can show most of the movie in the trailer and folks will still go see it…(looking at you Jurassic World..)

    I tend to watch mind teasing or films that make you think. There was a movie called Annihilation that was pretty mentally stunning. It’s an older film (a few years old) and didn’t get too much exposure but it was intelligent and scary to me. Very creepy scenes in it. The bear scene from that movie was straight up nightmare fuel. Very haunting, violent and realistic.

    1. Completely agree with everything you said about today’s horror movies. They keep recycling the same crap with gorier scenes and expect it to sell well. And Annihilation was a great movie! It came out this year and released on digital and Blu Ray platforms not too long ago. Bought it and watch it at least one a week(obsessed much?…LoL).

      1. Thought it was older than that. It was good though. Really makes you think about how things could mess up the ecosystem & cause terror.

  4. I enjoyed it and my theater was very lively. Viewed as a sequel to the original it works very well. I liked the call backs to the first film. I also liked the way they shot it like an older film. Like the gas station where if you look closely Michael was always in the background of the shots lurking or killing people just out of focus. That’s how he spied the guy who teased him with the mask. It was an A from me.

  5. I enjoyed the movie, but it was not needed. In H20, his head was chopped off, so this just did not make sense to me. I was afraid Laurie was going to he the killer when she was waiting outside the school.

    1. This movie was a direct sequel to the original. As such it corrected the fact that Laurie was not Michael’s sister. That sibling stuff started with Halloween II. So this one wipes H2O and the bad sequels out of continuity. I’m sure Jamie would have showed up anyway because she views this role as her legacy like Psycho was her Mom’s legacy.

  6. A horror movie isn’t supposed to be about violence and gore. It’s supposed to with suspense make you fear what you haven’t seen and make your imagination run wild.
    I can’t do scary movies without a friend. The other day I saw people saying some celebrity had demons in their pictures and I had to click off of the page. I’m a proud scaredy cat.

If you wouldn't say it on live TV with all your family and friends watching, without getting canceled or locked up, don't say it on here. Stay on topic, no SPAM, and keep it respectful. Thanks!
