Halloween Kills Review

As a newcomer to the Halloween franchise, I am less experienced with the later sequels to have any attachment to the worldbuilding, and I controversially thought Rob Zombie’s film was an interesting angle despite all his obnoxious signatures, but the boldness of Halloween 2018 was alluring in the visual confidence – a new start, so
