Tell me if you've seen any of these scenes before?

Michael Myers gets visitors whilst in the asylum - Rob Zombie's Halloween

Student looks out of window of class and sees weird figure on the lawns - Halloween

The bus transporting Myers to another loony bin crashes and Michael escapes - Halloween 4 The Return of Michael Myers

Myers kills the mechanics at a roadside gas station - Halloween 4 The Return of Michael Myers

A woman is trapped alone in a roadside lavatory as Myers stalks her - Halloween H20

One character is a cool guy in a cowboy hat and boots - Halloween 5 The Revenge of Michael Myers

A woman is murdered in her kitchen on Halloween night - Halloween II

A character in a bedroom is hidden under a sheet with eyeholes cut out - Halloween

There's a new Loomis type doctor hunting Myers - Halloween and also II, 4, 5 and 6 To be fair someone says to him "You're the new Loomis then?"

New Loomis drives round Haddonfield on Halloween night with the local sheriff - Halloween, Halloween II

A seemingly trust worthy doctor goes rogue with other ideas for Myers - Halloween The Curse of Michael Myers

Plus there are a couple of role reversals from the original Halloween

Loomis searching for Myers with emphasis on a wardrobe and Myers sends Jamie Lee Curtis tumbling off a first floor balcony

Meanwhile the writers had obviously decided Jamie Lee should become a gun toting Sarah Connor with an arsenal of arms in her basement. Was Linda Hamilton unavailable? And whoever cast screachy Judy Greer must have been out of their mind.

And that's before we even start on Halloween Woke.

The only good thing about Halloween (2018) was the soundtrack by John Carpenter
If that's what you think about the 2018 film, from what I overheard Biffo telling Algernon in CEX are absolutely gonna hate 'Halloween Kills'!
People try to put us down
Just because we get around

Golly, Gee! it's wrong to be so guilty
