Halloween is fun, it's funny, and Michael Myers has his groove back. But it's still, unfortunately - just another sequel.

With its tough-as-nails leading lady, clever setpieces (a sequence involving motion-activated lights is superb), and significantly higher body count, Green's Halloween will appeal to longtime fans and franchise novices alike.

The well-executed performances add depth to the expected formula.

Like so many other works that milk our nostalgia for original characters from celebrated properties, it doesn't build upon the foundation in any interesting ways. It comes across as fun fan fiction, but you'll be wishing it had more tricks and treats.

The movie's pace is good and there are even a few homages to the first film.

This new Halloween is really more a fetish object than a horror film.

While it is not a return to the classics, it still manages to bring a scary time. [Full Review in Spanish]

Thrilling, Chilling, Savage, and the Most Fierce Entry in the Franchise Since the Original.

Unfortunately the pile of corpses isn't the only thing in this movie that is lifeless. Even with a few clever nods, there isn't enough to interest many beyond the horror faithful.

February 4, 2019
The movie (for the most part), plays like an homage to its predecessor, setting up familiar scenes that made Halloween a cultural phenomenon.
January 31, 2019
A horror movie that is as much about the connection between predator and prey, as it is about the creative ways to transition anticipation into tension and tension into violence.

This movie brought some dignity back by erasing many of the previous Halloween movies.

2018's Halloween does present a conundrum. It's the perfect culmination to the long-running franchise but, more than any other chapter, it leaves the audience pumped for more.
January 25, 2019
[Forgets] that a decent Halloween movie should take its cue from Michael Myers: low on chat, high on surprise. Even so, this one can still boast a higher-than-average proportion of treats among its tricks.
January 21, 2019
The 2018 "Halloween" is a well-written and well-directed horror film.
Full Review | Original Score: B

Well, I guess this is what happens when a valuable franchise is entrusted to the guys who foisted Your Highness upon an unsuspecting world.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

By not considering any of the previous sequels, Halloween takes a risky direction and yet manages to fulfill expectations. [Full review in Spanish]

Halloween might be a so-so horror movie, or it might be amazing. I honestly don't care. It's a film about a strong woman standing up and doing what it takes to protect her family. On that mark, it hits every note.

Lejos de ser una película que reinvente al género, Halloween, quizás la más violenta de todas, tiene más de reimaginación moderna que de secuela. Si sumamos eso a lo baja que había quedado la vara después de tantos años, alcanza.
Full Review | Original Score: 7.5/ 10
