"A very slapdash attempt. And one fucked up story."
2 stars

I think someone was having a drug induced nightmare when they wrote this.

Badly acted
Badly scripted
Badly directed.

Wait. I forgot one thing...... IT IS NOT EVEN ABOUT MICHAEL MYERS!

Isn't that like making a Freddy film.. without Freddy?

Basically some fucked up shit about killer Halloween masks, that when watching an advert thingy makes your face explode into a bunch of insects...

It does have moments of genuine freakiness. I did enjoy this film in the 80's but it is so dated now, and I resent it for leaving the Michael Myers plotline it so requires.

Leave it alone unless its a choice between this and Part 6.

A very slapdash attempt. And one fucked up story.
