    Much like Jaws, see my previous review, Halloween has been with me for a long long time. It may have been thanks to Scream and I seem to remember seeing Halloween 2 before I ever saw the original. I watched it with my Dad, he pointed out to me that the scene at the beginning was the end of the first movie.

    I keep coming back to this franchise, I don’t really know why but it's probably because they keep making the movies. If you build it, he will come. That sort of thing. The good news is that Conjuring 3 is nowhere near as bad as La Llorona or The Nunjuring (credit Mark Kermode or whoever came up with it first). On the other hand, it is nowhere near as good as the original Conjuring…
