What a beaut. This is a bad movie, but it’s campy. So like, it’s kind of an awesome movie. I think it’s better than it got credit for in the 80’s, I mean people were just so outraged that Michael Meyers wasn’t in it they didn’t give it a chance. I like the first Halloween movie, but I’m not a huge fan of the franchise. I honestly wish this movie had done better so it would have developed the way the creators had imagined it. The wanted the franchise not to be centered around Michael Meyers, but for each film to be a different installment in an anthology, all set during Halloween. I think that would’ve been more interesting than how the franchise actually went, but we got what we got. Anyway, this movie is about a man and woman who are trying to investigate a murder they think is linked to this mysterious Halloween mask company, Silver Shamrock (the song will be stuck in your head for weeks I promise you). It’s full of trick or treaters and costumes and gore. It’s honestly a great, silly horror movie to watch on Halloween night.
