5. Halloween Kills (2021)

Halloween Kills may not be the best Halloween movie out there, but it’s still a fun and intense film that fans of the franchise need to check out. The movie is a direct sequel to the 2018 film, which retconned all previous sequels, and it picks up right where that movie left off, with Michael Myers still on the loose and wreaking havoc on Haddonfield.

One of the things that makes Halloween Kills a must-watch for fans of the franchise is the way it brings back some of the characters from the original film. We get to see Tommy Doyle and Lindsey Wallace as adults who are still haunted by the events of that night. The return of these characters adds a layer of nostalgia and familiarity to the film that fans appreciated and were excited to see.

The movie is also packed with intense and brutal scenes, including a scene where Michael Myers massacres an entire group of firefighters. The kills in Halloween Kills are some of the most brutal and creative in the franchise, and they will definitely leave an impression on viewers and created plenty of controversy in the process.

However, the movie’s ending has received some criticism from fans and critics alike. Without giving too much away, the ending of the film may leave some viewers feeling disappointed or unsatisfied. Nevertheless, the journey leading up to the end is still worth watching.
