This movie isn’t quite as good as the original, but it’s not off by a lot.  Sure that hospital is too empty for words and Laurie can’t possibly get out a scream when she really needs to, but realism is for suckers sometimes.  And it’s only one category in a list of categories that me and DJ appreciate.

On a good note, the music is back, The Pleas is back (that crazy Dr. Loomis!!) and all the terror’s back, too.  We don’t know how The Pleas survives this film, but he is back for the 4th one as well.

You also gotta love the fact that Laurie acts like she’s never shot a gun before and then shoots Michael right in both of his eyes.  Two really lucky shots, I guess.

DJ gives it an 84/100.  I give it an 89.

“I shot him 6 times! I shot him in the heart-but… HE’S NOT HUMAN!”                  -The Pleas

About TaraRomero

I suppose I could list my favorite movies here, but instead I'll give you a strange glimpse into what makes me TaraRomero. 1. When I'm alone I like to sing really loudly to songs I know really well and pretend I'm actually good at it. 2. I am a bonified Hiddlestoner. 3. I have kept a journal for the last 25 years and I still own every one of them. 4. I like ordering travel magazines and picking out trips I'm going to take when I'm rich. 5. I'm currently worrying about my brother. I always worry about my brother. He's younger and it's my job. 6. If I knew I was dying in one hour, I would type a very strange email and then go spend time with my family (including my fur babies). 7. The best non-horror movie I've seen recently is The Giant Mechanical Man. 8. I am obsessed with Bob's Burgers and I watch one episode every night before I go to bed. 9. If I had a son I'd name him Malachai (as in Christian Mythology). If I had a daughter I'd name her Antigone (as in Greek Mythology). 10. My favorite band is and I supposed always will be, Matchbox Twenty. However, the music has become more upbeat lately and I don't like it as much. Just being honest.
