With aliens seeking Stone Henge and Halloween masks that can turn children into insects, this is truly bizarre stuff. But despite all its weirdness, Halloween III somehow manages to be boring... with pedestrian photography and long stretches of lifeless action. It certainly doesn't evoke the holiday like Carpenter's original.
It's probably the most important, influential superhero movie ever made. It takes its time to establish its story and characters and the movie just feels epic in scope. Plus, Reeve's performance and William's score are iconic. A perfect movie.
It's competently made, but it suffers from broadly drawn characters and a plot that's much too obvious. Call it a thriller for people who can't quite handle scares and suspense. You won't find any surprises here.
It's a better-than-average horror sequel with more style and dark humor than the first. However, the script's not as tight and suspenseful, and we're not really exploring new territory here. Terry O'Quinn's performance is again the highlight.
In spite of a distractingly silly, outdated score, The Stepfather is a solid thriller. A tight, clever script and Terry O'Quinn's schizophrenic performance far exceed expectations for low-budget fare like this.
