    ★★

    So the new take on Myers this time is that he represents men in the #METOO era. I guess it's not the worst idea in the world, given that "the final girl" has always been a bit of a feminist thing. But the movie goes about it clumsily. The finale to me seemed like the writers started with that kinda cool idea, and built the movie backwards from there, and it just didn't work out. There are some cool parts,…

    I'm fairly surprised that this movie isn't more of a cult classic. It's got all the makings of one, what with some out of the blue funny moments, some cheesy one-liners, and a few notably shocking scenes.
