80's Slasher movie at its best.
13 February 2019 | by rpgisusSee all my reviews

Don't listen to the wanna be critics who know very little about the Halloween franchise or films in general this movie delivers for what it was made and advertised for, a return to form to the original ingredients that made John Carpenter's Halloween back in 1978 so good. This movie can't be ground breaking since Halloween is already ground breaking, the father of all slasher movies with his grandpa obviously being Psycho.
