Halloween Kills is bloodier & scarier than ever before. And Michael Myers is in on his killing spree yet again! As if the people of Haddonfield, Illinois, didn’t suffer enough, Myers is back to terrorize them.
In this part, ‘The Shape’ mass murders in the most grotesque way possible. Whether it’s fists & punches or chain saws & knives, it’s got it all. And according to theory, Myers becomes powerful with each murder. So, if that’s the case, then Myer’s power is ultimate right now. The ending scene of the movie shows powerful imagery of that. Which is Myers looking over the world as his prey, ready for his next hunt. A spine-chilling movement of the film!
