Halloween Kills – a community perspective movie review

A few years ago I tried to watch the original Halloween movie. I liked it as a kid, but now as a grown woman, it was terrifying. Too realistic. Supernatural and monsters are strange but stalkers, too close to what could really be outside my door. I turned it off.

I decided to watch Halloween Kills since I already knew Micheal Myers keeps popping back though, I thought, I saw he was decapitated in one movie trailer.  Now he is supernatural and it boggles my mind that he is so indestructible. Halloween is the gift to Hollywood that keeps giving.

I also wanted to watch it since I knew it was featuring one of the housewives from Beverly Hills. She was a child in the original and now, had the chance to be terrified again. Spoiler alert : the filmmakers keep her alive to rope people like me into another film later, I assume.

I didn’t expect the film to bring up community living issues but it completely did.  The town literally goes insane and forms a possy to hunt Micheal Myers down.  Of course, when people form groups and try to take justice into their own hands, it goes terribly wrong.  That’s what happened and like I mentioned before, Micheal Myers is now a terrifying Duracell Bunny that keeps on going.

It didn’t scare me though I did close my eyes and never have gotten into any gory scenes. It was actually pretty fun and I liked the message of stop acting irrationally as groups.  The storming of the hospital scene looked like a replay of the Capitol Building Riot even though it was filmed at least one year beforehand.

Will we ever learn or do we need Micheal Myers to kill us all?  At the rate he’s going, that made-up town in Illinois won’t have any community members left.
