Critic Consensus: Halloween largely wipes the slate clean after decades of disappointing sequels, ignoring increasingly elaborate mythology in favor of basic - yet still effective - ingredients.

Critic Reviews for Halloween

All Critics (49) | Top Critics (10)

A new coat of paint, even on a storied house of horrors such as "Halloween," can do wonders.

September 18, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The result is almost the Platonic ideal of a slasher-reboot -- it's fierce, it's lean, it's mean, and it has at least three first-pumping "Hell, yeah!" moments.

September 11, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

It's just not scary. And that's one thing you could never say about the original.

September 10, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

That's a great reason to remake it: Everyone's waving around a gun these days, and the idea that the survivor of the so-called "Babysitter Murders" is, 40 years later, a militia-worthy nut with murderous instincts of her own has a sad symmetry to it.

September 10, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Just another pale imitation, another bad Halloween sequel watering down the fear factor of the original.

Top Critic

The movie mostly works because it's so fundamental, and funny too: Michael still never speaks; his mask and his slow, deadly, deliberate walk say everything they need to.
