    Unlike with the series' other sequels, this one finally feels like it was worth the wait.

    The sheer number of monsters in the movie serves as a stand-in for its weak plot — a retread of the first film, in which Stine's monsters attack a small town in Delaware.

    Goddard provides ample space for his star-studded cast to play, often to great effect, thanks mostly to lesser-known stars like Erivo and Pullman. The production design is similarly engrossing, with the El Royale's endless corridors and secrets making it as much a character in the movie as any of its human players.

    The Predator suffers from serious tone and pacing issues.

    The Happytime Murders is a good idea executed badly, or at least one that is trying too hard to be shocking.

    The problem isn’t that the humor is inappropriate, it’s that after almost two decades, it isn’t as funny.
