If you're going for action and cool purge costumes it's worth a watch. It comes across as some what pretentious with an underlying agenda. I have no leanings in the political world, but it seems to want to paint America as a rightwing nation that has lost its way. However, as a horror enthusiast I give 3 stars for an overall interesting plot for the whole series.
One of the greatest scifi horror movies of all time! The entire cast is stellar and amazing. The special effects for '82 are absolutely amazing to this day. The soundtrack is one of the greatest in horror history up there with Halloween and The Exorcist.
Horrific acting and contrived subjective story from the mind of it's creator Kirk is a terrible attempt to defend a holiday that needs no defense. Kirk comes up without the help of the bible with outlandish claims of the manger, trees, St. Nicholas and even packages representing a city skyline as ridiculous and completely made up. The film is not funny, boring and basically a catalyst for the false claims of an egocentric man who is trying to be a hero no one is looking for.
Definitely made the slasher genre of horror movies big. Halloween with it's incredible cinematography for its budget and memorable horror icon is a classic. The story is simple but intriguing being the antagonist seems to have a supernatural element about him. The ability to punch through a car window with no visible injuries, lift a 150 pound man off the floor with one arm, stabbed in the neck with a knitting needle, stabbed center mass with a butcher knife and gouged in the eye with a coat hanger. Then shot six times again center mass and falling off a second floor balcony is quite a feet for the shape.
