    Halloween Kills

    ★★½

    If ever a movie suffered from middle child syndrom it's this one. Nothing of consequence happens (as far as main characters go...well maybe) and a lot of randos get killed in brutal ways.

That all changed this week when I found out it starred Lance Henriksen, who I have always liked, and so I put it in the Halloween rotation. What a…
