I try to never make any statement that I can’t back up, because there’s always somebody who’ll call you on it if you can’t. I wouldn’t want to end up looking foolish. Some people don’t seem to care, though. Not at all.
Early reviews for HALLOWEEN KILLS are positively gushing. From the trusted sources, that is. As anyone should have expected, there are some Normies who hated it. My question is, why are we still letting Normies review genre movies anyway? This one dweeb writing for VARIETY called the original HALLOWEEN a “Texas Chainsaw Massacre knockoff”. Yes, really.
Now what can we glean from that one ignoramus statement? That the reviewer has never seen either movie, obviously. He probably remembers reading somewhere that HALLOWEEN was a slasher film, and THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE is sometimes referred to as a Slasher flick, and since the latter film came out first, then *obviously* HALLOWEEN must be a ripoff of the earlier effort. Never mind that the two films could not be any more different—which anybody who bothered to watch them would know. I dunno, maybe don’t write about things if you don’t know what you’re talking about?
There’s a reason I don’t review Opera. I don’t know anything about Opera. I’d end up sounding stupid if I did start reviewing Opera. Normie seems to have no qualms at all about sounding stupid.
