Reviews: Halloween (2018)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Caio Bogoni @ Cine Grandiose [Portuguese]
    • Excerpt: One of the best sequels of the franchise, easily.
  • David Crow @ Den of Geek [English (accidentally triggered this)]
    • Excerpt: Halloween of 2018 does not quite have the purity and focus of the 1978 classic, but very few slasher movies do. What it does offer, however, is the best continuation of that story in the past 40 years of numerous attempts, and something fans old and new are going to devour like a particularly juicy red candy on Halloween night.
  • Karl Delossantos @ Smash Cut Reviews
    • Excerpt: Halloween (2018) is a product of the original film it’s following up and the long-changed slasher genre that it spawned.
  • Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: The hunted Laurie isn’t a helpless victim, but rather a tenacious woman ready for her adversary. This is a horror film for the #MeToo era.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: A minor fan-fiction take on the franchise’s mythology: ‘Hey, maybe middle-aged Laurie Strode likes guns LOL?’ Nowhere near as feminist or as psychologically incisive as it thinks it is. And it’s not even scary.
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: A sequel remake so like the original, they didn’t even change the name. Michael Myers hacks and slashes his way through female babysitters in the same neighborhood from 40 years ago creating nostalgia rather than scares.
  • Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See
    • Excerpt: Tense, gory, and full of nervous laughter, you can do much worse than spending 106 minutes with grim, loaded-for-bear Laurie Strode.
  • Aaron Neuwirth @ We Live Entertainment
    • Excerpt: Whether or not you view this as the best entry of the franchise since the original, this is the scariest Michael Myers has been in ages.
  • Eddie Pasa @ Gunaxin
    • Excerpt: A surprising script, solid direction, and a sharp feminist/#MeToo undercurrent make David Gordon Green’s Halloween one hell of a movie. Don’t miss it.
  • Scott Phillips @ Timed Edition
  • [New] | Joao Pinto @ Portal Cinema [Portuguese]
    • Excerpt: It represents everything that is wrong with the saga!
