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.
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.
[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.
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.
