So yesterday I saw the movie “Halloween Kills”, yes the new Michael Myers movie. As some of you may or may not know, this new Halloween series going on takes place after the first one, completely ignoring the rest of the series. So this new series is a continuation after the first one.
A lot of the characters are played by the same people from the first one except for that little kid in the first one, Tommy Doyle, the kid with the bowl cut hair who discovered the Boogeyman aka Michael Myers. The original actor who played Tommy Doyle, whose name is Brian Andrews is retired from acting I think. That’s why they ended up getting child star legend, Anthony Michael Hall to play Tommy instead. Yes, that Anthony Michael Hall who played in movies like “The Breakfast Club”, “Weird Science”, “Sixteen Candles”, “National Lampoon’s Vacation”, etc. He was part of the brat pack in the 80’s and now he’s one of the leading roles in a Halloween movie. Anthony Michael Hall did a good job, though. I was impressed with him.
Michael Myers is still being played by the same guy, Nick Castle. Of course, Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode and the cop guy from the first one, Brackett is played by the same actor too.
I think the director David Gordon Green is doing a fine job with these movies. Does a good job trying to match Carpenter’s style. This is a guy who mostly makes Drama and Comedy films which is impressive, really.
I thought the story was pretty well written and the kills in this movie, man. The Myers kills in this movie getting real interesting and different. I don’t want to reveal any spoilers in this movie and I don’t want to say whether or not Laurie and Michael faces each other, you’ll have to find out yourself.
There’s one more Halloween movie after this one which will be the final one, “Halloween Ends” but it’s gonna be interesting to see how they’re gonna kill Michael for good.
Since this movie “Halloween Kills” is streaming on Peacock, I decided to watch movie on the big screen instead first ’cause that’s how movies were supposed to be seen, ya know? It’s more fun seeing movies on the big screen with the giant screen and loud speakers. I went to see it with a friend of mine ’cause not everybody subscribes to Peacock, ya know?
I’m probably gonna re-watch “Halloween Kills” ’cause I’m planning to start at the beginning with the Halloween (1978) and Halloween (2018). Halloween day is just around the corner and I’ve been watching a Halloween horror movie marathon myself.
“Halloween Kills” was brilliant but I”m sure the next movie is gonna be even better. Trust!
