Critic Reviews for Halloween
Green reduces a character who was the ultimate mystery to an audience-prompting device that feels as worn as his perfectly aged mask.
Forget the promise of Blumhouse taking over the franchise and giving it to a respectable director like David Gordon Green: This isn't a glorious rebirth, it's a functional facsimile, and it's a wholly satisfying piece of slasher entertainment regardless.
Curtis makes an all-in return to the Strode character, and the filmmaking team builds a solid framework around her, in the propulsive and entertaining new "Halloween."
There's more here than graphic gore and shocks. This is also the story of the multigenerational effects of trauma.
It's a fairly engrossing bit of fan service, boasting many clever touches and a few disappointing ones.
