Storyline Heading
Laurie Strode comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Horror Thriller - This is another installment in the long-running slasher horror series, but it's a direct sequel to the 1978 original, ignoring all of the other sequels that have been released over the last 40 years. Fans of the original, returning star, Jamie Lee Curtis, will definitely enjoy, while those of other recognizable faces here such as Judy Greer may be disappointed by their much smaller roles. Language and brutal, bloody violence make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good This is the sequel Halloween fans have been awaiting for four decades. With John Carpenter whispering in his ear (the original director returned in an "advisory” capacity and as co-composer), David Gordon Green has taken the series back to its roots. Terror and horror have replaced bloodlust.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average ...do you know the biggest sin of the new "Halloween”? It's just not scary. And that's one thing you could never say about the original. Worst of all, Green bungles the ending. ..."Halloween” just doesn't deliver when it needs to most of all.

USA Today Full Review
Good By staying true only to the initial narrative, this "Halloween” solidly ranks as the best chapter since the first – not exactly the highest bar – mostly by making Laurie (a remarkable Jamie Lee Curtis, whose last appearance in the series was 2002's "Halloween: Resurrection") anything but a victim.

NY Post Full Review
Good Finally, Hollywood has made a good "Halloween” sequel. It took them only 40 years. "Halloween” recovers its long-lost gravitas and self-respect. ...Curtis, who is more intense and badass than ever, and acts the hell out of this part. Performances in this genre don't come any better.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 76 moviegoers:
For a horror movie, THESE ARE GREAT REVIEWS! When half, or more, of each age/gender group indicate they love it and another large percentage rate it "above average," indicating they enjoyed it very much, it's a great review. As with any horror movie, there were some (although considerably fewer than normal) who enjoyed it, but didn't think it was anything special or memorable. Also normal is some who didn't enjoy it at all, but there are fewer of these than is typical for a horror movie in my experience.
