If you're a fan of slasher movies from the 80s, this is a fine homage/parody of that genre.

This sane look into an insane action is why this movie is so funny. It actually makes sense and your mind starts to wonder and think about all the other horrors to see if maybe Michael Myers could have been wearing a bullet proof vest and perhaps he could have done other things to make him seem supernatural.

The end is a bit predictable, but it doesn’t detract from the …
