Today I did my Halloween Marathon with the help of AMC. They were airing a few Halloween movies and since they are extra points if watched on AMC today I figured I'd snag a few and catch up. Sadly I didn't get all four, but I got three.
Kweeny's Rating: Let the dangertainment begin!
Summary: This movie is probably the WORST in the Halloween series. It's just so...BUSTA RHYMES! SERIOUSLY? He kills Mike Myers? And why does Lori die like in the first 10 mins? It's just terrible. Hilariously terrible, but still terrible. I find myself saying stupid lines from this one after I watch it. Like, "TRICK OR TREAT, MOTHERFUCKER!" I usually get weird looks, especially from Lord Bearington.
Kweeny's Rating: He's Baaaack!
Summary: I think at this point Dr. Loomis is pretty tired of Mike's antics. If I was him I would be. It's 10 years later, and Mike's back to stab again, and again, and again...
The mask has some creepy charm though doesn't it? It's just so iconic. Mike's dead eyes staring back at you from those hollow eye slits is so creepy.
Halloween (91 mins/1978)
Kweeny's Rating: Originals Rule!
Summary: Recognize the pumpkin? Whenever this intro starts up with the awesome music, I get chills. Not because it scares me like it did when I was 5, but because of the memories. This movie started me down the path of becoming an obsessive horror geek. It will always hold a special place in my heart. It has great atmosphere, tension, and wonderful acting. I dunno why Rob Zombie thought this story needed to be explained to death, because I love the mystery of it all. The fact you don't know why Mike snaps. You just know he's a little broken, and never, ever stops coming.
And that was my night! I dunno what I will do tomorrow, but I am sure I'll find some fun movies to watch.
