Well, what we have here in "Mr. Halloween" is what appears to be, anyway, a group of kids who decided to make a movie and they liked the concept of the movie "Halloween" and the success that this particular low-budget movie had...just goes to show you that just because you make a low budget movie and have the word "Halloween" in it does NOT mean that you will produce a good horror movie. So, in a lame attempt to cash in on Carpenter's masterpiece, these lamos splattered some blood around with cups, buckets and smeared it when a kill was supposed to take place, used their lame actors to run around like a bunch of freaks, and had a psychopath on this loose killing people, and they couldn't call it "Halloween", so they just put a "Mr." in front of "Halloween" and called it "Mr. Halloween". The best part about this movie is the police officer's attitude toward this new generation of kids. As cynical as he may be, he's got a point, and I don't blame him about these characters...it would have been great if everyone in this whole movie died...that's how bad it is. Yeah, that's right, I don't like this movie and you know why? Because, it's garbage!
"Mr. Halloween" completely lacks in atmosphere, suspense and mood, elements that are essential to any horror movie's success. The makers of this garbage completely failed to capture a Halloween theme in this movie. Just a complete mess here, and it's just further evidence to support the fact that the horror genre is officially dead.
To say the acting is amateurish in almost every case would be being kind; the camera work, whilst there are some really outstanding shots and good composition, is shaky and inconsistent; even the quality of the film is grainy and pixelated, tiling VERY apparent on the blacks and a lot of distortion in long shots; the sound work is hit and miss, a good bit of the dialogue fading into the background behind the overly-amped and D-grade soundtrack; the story is a pretty good one, not entirely original, but done in a convincing and different way, but there are several elements that don't immediately make an overt amount of sense...
...and all of that sounds like a terrible excuse for killing an hour of your time watching it.
When you sit back and take into account that this film was done by a group of basically kids, with probably about two-hundred bucks worth of budget, borrowed equipment, and a weekend or two to work on it, you have to see it with different eyes. I doubt seriously anyone who worked on this film got paid a red cent up front; it was composed purely of passion and dogged determination to get something worthwhile put together in a genre they obviously all love. They sought to bring out a little originality rather than re-hash something someone else had already done, and whereas you can see some elements in the film you've seen before, overall I think they were successful.Read more ›
