Horror Case Files Verdict

It didn’t get good reviews, but I enjoyed it. It didn’t replicate key moments from the previous film, and it was neat to see how the events lead up to John Carpenter’s film.

Random Info I got from this File:
  • Always remember to put your earring back on the right ear
  • Don’t shoot a guy with a live flame thrower
  • Sometimes it pays to not floss
