For many years horror fans have been familiar with the Stephen King novel It thanks to the book finding even greater notoriety with the television miniseries released in 1990. Then in 2017 the pop culture world was reintroduced to the tale when It came to the big screen, and it certainly made an impression. In the case of this Film Adventurer It was a frightening sight to behold as its stellar sense of story and character was only matched by its creative scares. Needless to say It was a horror film to remember, but it would not be the end of this story as two years later It Chapter Two would creep onto the silver screen. Once again directed by Andy Mushietti Chapter Two centers on the second part of the novel which features the losers club as adults. Aside from following up its predecessor I was curious to see just how this finale would wrap up. After experiencing all 2 hours and 49 minutes of this horror film I can say with certainty that It Chapter Two was both a worthy conclusion to this frightening adaptation.
Over the years there have been many movie to define the horror genre, but none may be more prevalent than the likes of Halloween. One of the pioneers of the slasher sub genre Halloween took the world by storm when it debuted in 1978. Since then the gruesome tales of Michael Myers has been told time and again whether it was the killer’s return in Halloween: H20 or a complete retelling in Rob Zombie’s Halloween. The latest entry is indeed the latter as creeping its way to theaters is none other than Halloween. Directed by by David Gordon Green Halloween disregards the franchise’s tenure and creates a new story that continues the events of the 1978 film. While it was strange to see the filmmakers go in this direction the prospect of this entry was interesting as it could bring a refreshing take to series; not to mention recapture the essence of the original film. The end result was a sequel that was, to some extent, worthy to the name Halloween.
