“Halloween Kills” is the 12th installment in the Micheal Myers series. And like always, fans were pumped for the new upcoming movie, with the box sales making $50 million alone.

The movie continues from the last movie Halloween, which was released in 2018, and stars Jamie Lee Curtis, the original sister of Myers in the older movies. This encouraged old fans like myself to buy tickets and see the movie. However, despite being an important character, she wasn’t the lead in the movie; her daughter and granddaughter were. This upset fans slightly.

“I wish she was more of a main part in the movie. It was good, but it could’ve been better.” Sophomore Matthew Meraz says. Many reviews seem to put the movie in a good outlook, they also all seem to agree on one thing: It’s a good movie on its own, but not when compared to the rest of the franchise.

Others were also quite happy at the gore present in Halloween Kills. It was the opposite of the Rob Zombie remakes, focusing more on the plot and Micheal Myers’ effect on people than the bloody part of it. The most gruesome part of the movie is torn between the ending and the group killing that happened in the park during the middle of the movie.

Overall, the movie was an 8/10. On its own, it stood well with its plot and layout of the scenes. However, compared to the classics, it could’ve been played out better. During the entire movie, it felt like something was missing. Besides that though, it’s a must-watch for thriller fans and Halloween fanatics alike.
