Title-Halloween 5 The Revenge of Michael Myers
Source-Anchor Bay DVD

Set almost a year after part 4,we see how Michael survived the mine explosion. And how it has effected Jamie and her family. Jamie is mute now and is psychically connected to her Uncle Michael.

Sadly Ellie Cornell dies early on in the film. And Ellie's best friend takes the lead. Plus we get the first appearance of The Man in Black.

Sadly after part 4 being a big hit at the box office,this movie was a huge bomb.

Halloween 5 gets a C+.

31 Days of horror Day 21 Leviathan

Title-Leviathan
Source-Encore Suspense airing

In the late 80s there was a rash of undersea sci fi/horror films. The three most remembered one's are The Abyss,Deepstar Six and Leviathan.

While The Abyss had that hack James Cameron behind it,and one of the few of his films worth watching, Leviathan has Stan Winston doing the FX work. Plus a cast full of genre actors. People like Peter Weller, Ernie Hudson, Amanda Payes and others.

After finding the wreckage of the Russian deep sea vessel Leviathan ,our leads go explore it. They find some liquor,which a few of the crew consume.

Turns out this liquor is infected and the people that drink it start to mutate. And cause of a nearby hurricane the crew can't be evacuated for 12 hours.

This is a fun b horror. Feels a bit like Alien mixed with The Thing but set underwater.

Leviathan gets a B.

31 Days of horror Day 20 Lucifer Season 1

Title-Lucifer the complete season 1
Source-Warner Bros DVD

Having read the Sandman comic that Lucifer spun off from I had an idea of where I thought this TV show would go. Turns out I was very wrong.

After abandoning Hell,Lucifer now runs a popular night club in Los Angeles.  After seeing a pop star get murdered our lead feels something changing in him.

In the 13 episodes in season 1,we see Lucifer slowly changing. He becomes a consultant for the police. All the while having to deal with an angel that wants to get our lead back in Hell.

The main cast is pretty good. The plots are decent. And I was surprised with how much I enjoyed the show.

Lucifer season 1 gets a B+.
