Right this moment a major debate is taking place in the United States. Will you see Halloween II or The Final Destination this weekend? I say to hell with the debate, go see both films. Here’s how the Retro Slashers Trifecta weekend works. Go see Halloween II and The Final Destination. After you’ve seen both films leave your thoughts and comments here at Retro Slashers. Do they both suck? Do they kick major ass? How was the crowd reaction? Let us know what you enjoyed or hated.
This is a big weekend for genre fans, I don’t think two major horror fans have been released on the same Friday since the early 1980s. Both films will be facing strong competition from holdovers so horror fans need to turn out in a big way. I’m a Halloween fan, so I’ll be seeing that first. But I expect The Final Destination to have the bigger box-office due to the ad blitz during prime time hours on every major network. Halloween II ads only appear during commercials on wrestling shows, UFC bouts, and the Sy Fy channel.
So get out there this weekend and enjoy large quantities of murder, mayhem, and mass destruction.
