ReelViews for 'HORROR' movies
A generally well-made but ultimately unsurprising excursion into the supernatural.
The film, which captures the feel if not the full charm of the written stories, comes across as an autopilot low-scare monster movie targeted at 7 and 8-year olds.
This is the sequel "Halloween" fans have been awaiting for four decades as the slow-burn terrors of 1978 reach out across the years to shock and frighten a new generation.
Viewers are saddled with a generic slasher flick, a predictably high body count, and a story that relies more on gore than suspense for its substance.
