Gore For Days
This is Italian gore at its finest. It’s viscous, corrosive, and grotesque. It’s vile, revolting, and one bloody good time. There isn’t much in the way of a storyline, instead, it focuses more on good old practical effects and gore.
The costumes are fantastic and the makeup is incredible. The editing is a little loose in spots, but the score and sound effects are top-notch. Also, the acting isn’t the best, some performances are better than others. Nonetheless, it’s still frightening, sinister, and repulsive.
One thing that could use a little sprucing up is the dialogue and voice-over dubbing. They were a bit muddled and hard to understand in certain scenes. However, it’s still gross, deranged, and devilishly delicious.
In the end, 4 halloween is bizarre, demented, and eerily disturbing. It’s the perfect film for the Halloween season. If you love old-school eighties throwback horror, then definitely check this one out. If you can stomach it that is. Now you can die with your favorite taste.
