Um, why did I just cry in HALLOWEEN?— Katie Walsh (@katiewalshstx) September 9, 2018
David Gordon Green delivers best HALLOWEEN movie since the original & does a smart job w/ its callbacks to the 1st film. Legit scary, & while crazy violent at times, it shows restraint at others. Loved the score. Jamie Lee Curtis is a badass, like Ripley crossed w/ Sarah Connor.— Jeff Sneider (@TheInSneider) September 9, 2018
DGG directs the hell out of the new HALLOWEEN. There are some chilling shots, esp. during a motion sensor scene. I had nitpicks, like some goofy humor & the off-camera kills, but the gory ones really make up for everything we don’t see. Jibrail Nantambu is a fun scene-stealer. 🎃— Jeff Sneider (@TheInSneider) September 9, 2018
The new Halloween has a callback shot so inspired it could sell the entire movie. Luckily, it doesn’t have to. It’s an absolute blast.— Matt Jacobs (@tarantallegra) September 9, 2018

HALLOWEEN is a total blast and is going to make a killing at the box office. Blumhouse does it again. Jamie Lee Curtis is still kicking ass and taking names. I can see fans watching this over and over again. The best Halloween since the original. #HalloweenMovie #TIFF18 pic.twitter.com/TSbtXr5Nuy— Scott Menzel @ TIFF (@TheOtherScottM) September 9, 2018
#Halloween is vicious! Loved the continuation of Laurie’s story but the pure evil of Michael’s drive to kill and the randomness of it is there and it’s strong. Beautifully shot, score is on point, some great humor and loaded with gore. It’s the complete package.— Perri Nemiroff (@PNemiroff) September 9, 2018
For those waitin on word from the #TIFF screening of HALLOWEEN 🎃 lemme set your mind at ease. David Gordon Green brought the goods! Plenty to ❤️4 fans of the franchise & genre, JLC brought her A game per usual, Carpenter’s score was 🔥 , but Jibrail Nantambu stole the show!— Jacqueline @ #TIFF18 (@THATJacqueline) September 9, 2018
Hell yeah, #Halloween rocks! So scary & pretty funny. The way it balances the freak-out and the nervous humor and the nasty kills is just fantastic. All of it plays so well together. Badass to the bone. Loved it. As David Gordon Green says, “it’s simple and relentless.”#TIFF18 pic.twitter.com/ZpebQfdAVF— Erik Davis (@ErikDavis) September 9, 2018
Movie #9: HALLOWEEN. Fear not, @HalloweenMovie delivers. Some great kills that had me cheering. And lots of great references (& a cameo!) that harken back to the original. Great score by Carpenter and his son, Cody. I want to be as badass as the Strode women, someday. #TIFF18 🎃— Michelle @ TIFF (@michelledeidre) September 9, 2018
Carpenter's #Halloween is one of my all-time favorite horror films. Completely lacking its despair & discipline, David Gordon Green's did nothing for me. The occasion itself was moderately fun--the score, the cheering crowd eager to be pleased, Jamie Lee Curtis, etc. #TIFF18— Tomris Laffly (@TomiLaffly) September 9, 2018
