I watched this movie and had one question, why was it written like this?

Of all the numerous ways I thought this movie will go, I give the writer and director some respect, this was not the path I thought this movie will decide to go. So, Michael Myers was able to detect another soul (Corey) which had his own taste for murder. It so happens that person is in a relationship with Laurie’s granddaughter. Wow, some strange coincidence which only happens in Hollywood as the two (Myers and Corey) started their own killing and the whole movie made no sense. The movie just had to create reasons to stab with the same gimmicks that mattered nothing in this beat up franchise. High School Seniors who were jerks, yeap! they must be stabbed. A man chasing a girl who is not interested in him, yeap! he must be stabbed too. Then the couple who are about to have sexy night, what is a stab movie without a couple planning sexy night dying? How dare they have sexy night when the bad guys are looming about, they get stabbed. This stereotypical nonsense that is supposed to mark the end of this franchise for now, ruined it. I do hope in my lifetime I never have to care if this franchise ever gets revived.

I have been watching the series since I can remember, saw some skipped others. The bottom line has always been Michael Myers survives.

Spoiler Alert

In this movie they wanted to bring the whole franchise to a close and it seems they could not find a way to do that without adding more stories to the mix.

It is not enough that they could not get a writer to give us some deep detective work, nope they did some stereotypical nonsense of people after four years after the incident of Halloween Kills (2021) start acting like Michael Myers is some boogeyman. Why could we not just enter some deep mystery and Myers doing some kill at the side as the hunt continues. Nope says the writers. Myers is leaving in some underground by himself for four years waiting for the right time to come.

Then Corey by accident stumbles into Myers path and they locked eyes, and a bond was weaved. The whole bad guys (Myers and Corey) get killed in this movie which for me was a pleasing result due to the waste of time this movie is, did not redeem all the time I have invested. Only the first film (Halloween (2018)) in this revived trilogy made any sense, this last two were just a waste of time.

They used less of Myers in this movie than I would have liked and wasted more of the time focusing on this new kid, only for him to be useless in everything. If Myers could really see into this young man’s soul, then why pick him as your protégé?
