Weekly Debate

Last week we asked if Michael Myers has a heart. We received equal votes for our three options -- definitely, absolutely not, and #NotMyMichaelMyers (translation: I acknowledge that in some terrible movies he seems to have a heart, but the Michael Myers I know and believe in from the original films does not). This question lives on to be debated another day once we see the 2018 release of Halloween.

This week "Are psychological thrillers in the realm of horror movies?"
