    Yeah, I actually prefer good to win or at least to have some good survive (but I do enjoy some of the alternative anyway).
    Personally id like to see evil win because good always does not just in horror but overall. Perfect example the power rangers franchise. You never get a evil wins outcome. Right now they brought back lord zedd as evil despite being turned good after zordon dies and his good essence affects all evil in power rangers in space

    Part of the problem, say in the slasher genre, is that evil is defeated, but the movie makes so much money the studio insists on a sequel and they have to "undo" the defeat. This has happened so often that even if it's final, the audience doesn't believe it.

Use a frigging aircraft carrier or oil tanker or something.

    I'm changing one little detail in this scenario: replace the white sharks with Bull sharks. Whites are more of a "feeler" shark; once they figure out you're not a seal, they lose interest for the most part. Bulls, on the other hand, have testosterone levels going through the roof. Of all the shark attacks recorded since the recordings began, Bulls are usually the culprit. They even swim upstream in fresh water, which prompted many people to believe they were responsible for the 1916 Jersey Shore attacks which were originally attributed to the whites.

    EDIT: An English horror Youtuber (not professional) I follow did a pretty good (though long) review I mostly agreed with. He's about as negative as Jeff:

I give zombie credit for trying but hopefully his munsters film is better
    When I first saw Zombie’s remake I really dug it and liked the aspect (for a change, not a necessity) of giving him a background. But I hated the second one (even upon re-watch) and now have kind of soured to both. I re-watched it when I went through the whole series again (after getting the Blu rays), but don’t feel inclined to just pick it up randomly.

    No, I agree, although 7 was made originally to end that continuity, but they chickened out with 8.

    I just don’t like that they present this idea of him being immortal without really proving it (because they didn’t do something totally un-healable like behead or explode him). I would’ve been cool if it ended like the last one (or for that matter 1, 4, 6, and 8) where it could be that he’s dead or not. I just don’t like them ending a movie with the bad guy totally on top.

    But there were a lot of good points in this movie. The mob mentality thing was great. And there were a lot of clever kills (like the light tube).

He spent 15 years in the sanitarium Halloween 2018 is 40 years so 61

    Ok, you bring up some very good points here. For starters, let's consider the ways you can end Michael permanently (or Jason or Leatherface or any other "supernatural " slasher:


    1. Be-head the bastard.
    2. Throw all the remains, including the head into an industrial meat grinder. Certain farm tractor implements will do the same trick, also.
    3. Now, take *those* remains, and bring them to a funeral director who can thrown them into the oven until they are ash.
    4. Take the ash and either A. Spread them in the ocean (salt is a spiritually purifying cleanser) or B. Bury the ashes on consecrated holy ground.
    5. OR you can bypass steps 1 through 4 and seal the bastard up *without* any loopholes for him to escape,, haul him out to the sea, get a great white shark frenzy going ("come chum some of this shit!") And drop the fucker in the middle of it. But you have to really get those sharks thrashing angry mad. Also make sure they are 20 feet or longer. And don't go out on a goddamn boat.

    I've thought about this a lot. A LOT.


    I did not like Laurie's daughter getting butchered at the end, either, but that could turn out to be a vivid hallucination in the next movie.


    They seriously need to pull off a "Rise of Skywalker" for the last movie. Like their lives depend on it.
