I went to the Thursday premiere like I've done for every Halloween film released in the last 20 years. I was super stoked because I really liked 2018. I was extremely disappointed as soon as the end credits rolled. I couldn't fathom how they could include all that horrible dialogue. It was straight cringe. It really felt like Jamie Lee made them put all her woke agenda driven social commentary. Seriously, kill her off already so we don't have to suffer from that bullshit in the next installments. Visually it looked great. Carpenter is still a legend, but I did prefer his 2018 score more. I watched it again at home and enjoyed it a lot more, just rolling my eyes at the cheesy dialogue. "Evil dies tonight", ok we get it. The bluray comes out in January and it includes an extended ending that they cut because of where they've decided to go in ENDS. I read the script, after the shape kills Karen, Laurie tries calling her from the hospital. The shape answers the phone, and just breathes into the phone. Lauries says she's going to kill him, and grabs the knife from the hospital room and heads out into the town.
