100 Movies before we move: #20
Solid acting and practical effects. It’s a shame they were wasted on this plot. 7/10.
Remember when the Halloween series was going to be an anthology? No? Neither does anyone else. The idea was dropped when this movie flopped in cinemas. An interesting story idea, with a not-terrible cast … but the writing lacked John Carpenter’s creative genius and the whole film suffered as a result. Not the worst horror movie ever, but not great. Still Ryan Hollinger and Good Bad Flicks both have nice things to say about this movie, so each to their own. 7/10.
