Apparently some people believe that nothing can be good unless a guy says so. I’m a guy. I’m saying so. More specifically…
We laughed our asses off.
It was like the earlier films, but it was not the earlier films. There were plenty of references to the 1984 and 1989 films (and also to a certain 1972 episode of Doctor Who), but it stands quite well on its own. And we finally get a character who is a history wiz. Seriously, did the team responsible for the first two movies never play Call of Cthulhu? You need a history wiz if you’re going to go after the supernatural.
You may know somebody who is sure this is going to be a terrible movie, and doesn’t hesitate to tell everyone around. You know, the guy who thinks he’s wearing a fedora when he’s actually wearing a trilby, who starts a lot of sentences with “I’m not a racist, but,” spends a lot of time on the Internet yelling at women. That guy. He’s the villain. Oh, sorry. Spoiler warning!
