David Gordon Green’s third and presumably final entry in the Halloween series winds up being the pleasantest of surprises. – Bilge Ebiri (New York Magazine)

So dreary is this latest go-round that the film’s title resonates less as a guarantee than as a cruel taunt. – Nick Schager (The Daily Beast)

If [Laurie Strode] is a pastiche of her original John Carpenter iteration, then so is the movie. But it’s just got enough fresh ideas, laughs (mostly intentional) and queasy jump scares to make for a raucous Friday night at the movies. – Philip De Semlyen (Time Out)

Did you want closure in a satisfyingly coherent way? That’s not what you’ll get. Did you want to see Curtis in one more (we think) badass performance as durable Laurie Strode, whom she’s been playing for some 45 years? You’ll get that. – Jocelyn Noveck (Associated Press)

It’s not a bad way to go out. At least it has the virtue of trying something new. – James Berardinelli (ReelViews)
