The scares are lacking, the characters unconvincing, the development dull and so on.

Quite enjoyable, I was glued the whole time

Absolutely BORING...

However, it's exciting to have John Carpenter back in some capacity and he delivers with an ominous score that's as thrilling as it is fitting.

Lacks the exciting simplicity of the original.


Amazingly boring.

Michael Myers takes slow, measured steps.

The soundtrack is absolutely stunning.

2: Confusing, lifeless plodding story.

It's a complete waste of your time and money.

Still, there is tension in the relentless killing, and the scenes at the accident site with the child, and later in the bathroom with the couple are suitably gripping.

Though cliche and cheesy, Green works his best in this festive and spooky thrill ride.

It baffles me because many of Gordon Green's films are tense and compelling.

Pointless .

Halloween isn't perfect though, I have a little flaw with it, and it is killing two people for no reason, maybe the old woman (as we saw in the trailer) because he wanted the knife, but it's very similar to a scene in Halloween II, when he killed an elder woman as well to take her knife, still it was very well directed, as soon as this was about to end, he enters a house to kill a woman for no reason, he just kills her, so this scene is wrong but the music with the amazing direction made this scene entertaining!


Why did the makers of this movie link this so heavily (see Jamie Lee Curtis) to the #metoo movement and include one of the worst movie endings in history => where 3 (!

It's just literally the worst movie.

This movie sucked so bad, it's unwatchable.

Worth watching if you like the Halloween Series.

While it was interesting to see the film challenge that taboo, the kill was so random and pointless it came off as tasteless.

Better than all the other sequels but the film falls flat in intervals , and feels a bit contrived.

Overall, Halloween is a dull, no where near as good as expected reboot with very little going for itself apart from a official and unwanted sequel that I really don't want to watch.

A woman alone in a bathroom who sees a man slowly walk up and down, let alone try to get into her stall (when the others are empty) is going to be seriously freaking.

It's boring.

Literally the worst movie of all time!

The whole movie was so unbelievable, unnecessary, and pointless!

This movie is boring, only the last 15 minutes worth your attention.

Boring one .

The soundtrack was milking the main few notes of the original with a bunch of added sounds, but it was never out of place, just a bit dull.

All other sequels, or reimaginings, I have found incredibly tedious.

This movie made me go to Google and type in 'unpredictable movies' just to find a piece that would help me get better after such an unnecessary sequel.

Finally two great points that need to be addressed: all the great little easter eggs and nods to the original, and the stunning score by John Carpenter himself!

The sequences felt out of order somehow and things were drawn out too much.

It was boring(due to most of the scares were shown in the trailers), the writing was lackluster and some of the actors were dull as hell.

The screenplay is pretty intriguing too - the way Michael retrieves his mask, the historic second encounter between Strode and Myers in a classic home-invasion scene, and the climax - all are written keeping the original in mind.

But if you, like me, have watched all ten films that preceded it, this is just additional pouring sand in the desert, because almost everything this film brings has already been seen, which makes it extremely boring.

The return of the classic sound track helped build the atmosphere and kept audiences on the edge of their seats.

It ticks all the right boxes: it's scary, entertaining, bloody and suspenseful.

This is absolutely one of worst movies I have ever seen.

Even the sequels (except the abysmal Busta Rhymes one) are more enjoyable.

With sn intriguing set up to bring a new insight into the "slasher" genre, with a look at the emotional toll of surviving such an attack.

A waste of time and money .

unpredictable, which is good.

Even if you know what is going to happen it is still 10 times more exiting than this snore fest.

Then they supplemented it with modern and cheaply repetitive horror-dubstep-noise that will be almost entirely unused in 5 years.

There were some very cool scenes at the assylum and the bathroom scene was pretty intense.

This movie, this story, was predictable and boring.

In terms of sheer pre-release hype this may have been one of the most gripping titles ever.

A friend of mine fell asleep during the movie and our group was laughing a lot because of the dumb decisions and the foretelling of the next scenes.

Predictable story,not scary ,no hallloween vibe and a very anti-climactic ending.

If you're a die hard fan of the originals - this version won't satisfy your expectations but, never the less, it's still entertaining to see Michael Meyers killing people in his signature stoic fashion.

Backed by modern day horror kingpin Jason Blum, this intriguing move has turned into one of the year's biggest success stories with Green's film (of which he co-wrote with McBride and Jeff Fradley) igniting and the box-office across the world and receiving its fair share of glowing reviews from critics, who have heralded in this new slasher as both a return to form, a career highlight for Jamie Lee Curtis and an intense look grief and trauma and how that defines our lives.

She searches the house in a scene so long and drawn out I feel mad that I didn't bring my nail polish.

Where do I stand on "the majority of the characters in this are there to be taken out, and they're bland and unlikeable"?

pointless, underwhelming .

I fell asleep 3/4 through it and never finished it.

Dull and Devoid of Suspense .

But when I left the theater spooked it was for different reasons than I had hoped.

Very enjoyable .

Overall, despite the many negatives of "Halloween" (2018) and it's various shortcomings, I still found it to be an enjoyable viewing experience.

Awfully boring movie seen hundreds of times in different type of slasher movies.

After all, none of them were that great anyway, but one would think that, if a filmmaker was going to do this, they'd have something more in store than a bland, suspense-free greatest hits collection of the discarded sequels.

This yawn of a movie is a disgrace and shouldn't have been "dedicated" to Mr. Aqqad anyway, poor legend is turning in his grave.

Slow and predictable.

Character traits are very boring like most ordinary murder movies this film is normal

The movie is filled with cliché scenes and the characters are as stupid as can be.

Boring slow dumb .


Absolute waste of time .


I got bored.

waste of time

Worst movie ever .

This was perfect and unpredictable which is hard to do in a scary movie.

Lame waste of my time .

The reporter journalist people in the beginning were pointless.

Next we waste some time with Allyson and her friends.

The script, however, is very mundane and contains too many cliches and bad twists.

Entertaining at best .

Awful, stupid, waste of time .

It's confusing.

I feel like I'm watching a really dated film that is trying to be ironic but comes across sarcastic and tiresome.

The pacing was off, the characters were mostly forgettable and not scripted memorably, few striking one-liners to take home here, let alone any memorable scenes.

Some scenes were just confusing and a bit illogical but overall I think it was a exciting and somewhat terrifying experience watching this.

Save your money.

Totally pointless and over-rated .

So many inconsistencies and plot holes, but somewhat enjoyable .

Michael Myers was a saving grace, a character that is hard to get wrong but was put in a boring string of predictable situations that felt too safe to be remotely fear-inducing.

Very intense, very scary, great movie.

Formulaic, slow and boring.

Its bland, generic and really poorly constructed.

It's actually, without a doubt, the worst movie I have seen in 2018.

Worst movies of 2018 .

Long drawn out scenes, many made no sense.

This movie is more intense and the scary parts of the movie are knowing Michael is a killing machine and can strike at any time.

I enjoyed it...

it was so dull and boring I could literally take my grandmother in to see it, and she hates horrors!

Beautiful and Entertaining .


The opening of the movie is very eerie and the music and setting help the scene, when two podcast investigators visit an aged and derranged michael myers at smyths grove where he has been incacarated for 4 decades , they try to talk to michael but as usual he is dormant , only an evil side way glance when his old shatner mask is held in the air with onlooking patients freaking out provoking the serial killers escape , the begining of the movie sets up the tone of the film , but apart from the ending been quite entertaining the middle part goes of the mark with meaningless subplots that just seem boring and dont seem to blend in with the tone at all , the murders are cold and grisly and the content is quite graphic ,the acting by jamie lee curtis playing an old laurie strode is on par in this , its believable and moving , whilst other cast members arent as engaging.

None of the film makes any sense, the characters are so dull you'll walk away 'thinking who was that again?

It sucked, dont watch it, dont waste your life or 2 hours on a movie that should have been a blockbuster that truly sucked balls.

It may be a small spoiler, but i'm not going to reveal what actually happens: there was a moment that they were trying to do something like a twist, but it was just introduced and then the film chooses to not follow it up, so it's forgotten very quickly, so it was pointless.

And is very enjoyable , as a sequel I think I'm agree with that, and recommend to watch it

It's the one of the worst movies of 2018 and the worst halloween movies series , is not even horror it's make me feel sick and he killed her sister in one of the halloween series so how she is still alive

All in all this is a pretty entertaining and well made movie.

Waste of time, rubbish acting, rubbish storyline , rubbish horror 👎🏾

It's a mostly by the number's slasher, with more focus pointed towards dull teens getting murdered instead of the trauma of Laurie Strode and the damage it has done to her life.

This slow old man got shot once by Jamie Lee Curtis early on and walked away like nothing happened.

but after watching this I was very pleased that they have flipped my opinion and they have brought back the thrilling Michael Myers to how he should be.

Laurie Strodes family were pointless, penis jokes.

bored; good horror intalls fear; people are too scared to look at their phones, too scared to comment 'he's pretty strong', 'don't kill the baby', she's hot', 'he's just standing there' etc. Dear Malek Akkad, JohnCarpenter and others involved: STOP FLOGGING THIS DEAD HORSE!

It had cliche upon cliche.

The worst movie I've seen .

It actually uses the tension and the slow burning first part to keep the audience on the edge of their seats just to literally explode in the final act.

Michael Myers has no reason, by the movie's own rules, to have interest in Laurie Strode yet Laurie has spent her entire life preparing for the encounter which only comes to be by some contrived plot twist.

Everything in between in terms of average and downright waste of time Halloween films are erased.

The writing of the two main characters were approached in a compelling way and I feel the 40 year gap between this movie's story and the original film's story (1978) helped in a brilliant way.

Halloween is very entertaining, I loved it and I'm gonna give it an A!

Gone is the young, intelligent, charismatic young girl that we rooted for to survive and in her place is a cliche trauma survivor that has took to locking herself away and lives in a constant state of paranoia despite Michael having been locked away for 40 years.

Was way too predictable, minus maybe one or two short scenes.

After stumbling past absurd plot holes and lapses in logic, the climax will leave you with the same satisfaction you get from a meal of empty calories.

It may be it was lost on me because I rewatched the first film the night before and found the thrills way too predictable as a result.

This was the 2nd worst Halloween movie ever pacing was to slow horrible acting not the least bit scary didn't feel for anyone who got mudered how Michael escaped made no sense since he was in shackles and behind a metal locked door with someone with a gun on the other side to many slow extended scenes no character development and the strood family were boring waste of my time will never watch this ever again

There are some good points in this flick that make it worth watching.

First, every death in the film is completely predictable .

It's eerie and it has the intense, dark atmosphere and amazing theme score.

Waste your money on it.. It doesn't bother me because it is not my money.

Story for this film wasn't terrible but the final execution could have at least been decentIt was incredibly bland and didn't even feel like a Halloween movie (Halloween as in the holiday), and to me it had all the entertainment value of watching paint dry.

Michael is brutal, terrifying, deadly and unpredictable.

How boring.

the rob zombie remake was at least edgy and "sharp", while this was cheesy and dull.

I thoroughly enjoyed it!

This Halloween has a strong footing in realism, some of the death scenes are quite vicious, and I rather enjoyed it.

Don't waste your time.

A somewhat empty return for the slasher icon.

Boring and predictable .

Destroyed the Rob Zombie films, THIS MOVIE IS MORE EXCITING.

It wasn't a bad movie, in fact, it was pretty entertaining.

Don't waste your precious time.

Halloween: H20 (1998) was better, at least it got the Halloween vibe and was entertaining.

Very predictable slasher that maybe went a bit too much with the original formula that even the scream movies made fun with back in the days.

Enjoyed it.

I really enjoyed it and would describe it as more of a thriller than a horror.

Definitely it is a worth-watching movie, a good plot and it's entertaining, it has a lot of murders but the movie ends very fast, you stand there waiting to something special happen and nothing happen.

Dumb, yes but entertaining and will make a go-to movie at Halloween.

Halloween (2018) was an unexpected hit, I went into the cinema with low expectations due to the previous instalments which for me destroyed this franchise created by horror mastermind John Carpenter those forty years ago.

The movie has a good style and reminds of the original movies, it's intense and has fun buts in too.

The scares are genuine, the action and atmosphere nerve-rackingly intense.

All this makes for an entertaining time.

I thoroughly enjoyed it and am glad to see Halloween get the sequel it deserved.

The buildup was slow and atmospheric and I enjoyed the fact that he didn't start killing right off the bat and 10 people per minute.

The movie overall was good but the ending felt dull, the original won't be beaten.

In this umpteenth alternate timeline for the series, the filmmakers have opted for a complete do-over, ignoring every thing after the first movie in favor of a more tonally similar direct sequel, and the resulting movie hovers close to ho-hum at best.

The dynamic of Laurie and Michael's lives was really fascinating and adds depth to the plot.

It might be the worst movie of any genre ever made.

A vicious, violent & vengeful delight that delivers on the promise of offering an enjoyable, entertaining & mostly satisfying ride, it scores heavily on nostalgia and is solely steered by the original cast.

The use of the lighting to create some very suspenseful scenes is outstanding, and Carpenter's score is utterly unforgettable.

Sadly, they have also left the ending open to the possibility of another pointless sequel!

Although if the reports of the ending being changed due to the unexpected popularity and interest in the revived series is true (and it certainly seems so when you re-watch early trailers) then I can at least understand why it went down the way it did.

It was super slow and some parts were just dumb.

From start to finish it's gripping I'm pulling you in to its characters and its plot, taking the franchise back to its roots and back to its creator John Carpenter's original vision, everything from it's incredible soundtrack it's many Easter eggs is why Michael Myers and this story is the godfather of Slasher Horror, I believe it's best installment to the franchise since Halloween 2 and will reboot Many other classic horror franchises, it's appropriate that the original slasher movie should being the

Flavorless, joyless, dismal, and abysmal waste of time and money .

I pride myself on being hypercritical to every aspect of a given film and not just giving 1 star because I got bored or didn't absolutely love it, like I see some people do.

Honestly the only compelling scene in this entire film was the banh mi-brownie discussion.

Michael Myers is back to being something to fear and this is the most competent and enjoyable injection in the series since Season of the witch.

I found this movie to be a bit mundane for a horror.

Although not very scary, it is entertaining.

Plus it gives a good break in between the intense scenes!

This movie is being really Over-Hyped don't waste your money or time it's not worth it.

Nostalgic, recognizable and very intense!

After a string of ho hum sequels to Halloween from 1978, 1981 was one of my favourite sequels.

Very dull.

Sometimes I think the actual jump scare that u get within is just the unexpected obnoxious sound effect.

If there is one thing that sticks out throughout the whole film it's sound design, and as a horror film, (especially one with such a slow creature,) it is required to be excellent throughout the entirety of the movie or the viewer will relapse and become an average cynic again.

If you simply do not like it, that's fine, but it is FARRRRRRR from "terrible", "awful", "boring" or "the worst".

a pointless twist that means nothing.

Halloween was absolutely riveting!

This movie lives in a little universe where the other sequels don't exist, however, there are moments within this one which tell the audience these sequels are recognized and that can be confusing.

Enjoyable film, worth a watch if you like horror or if you don't.

Credit also goes to James Jude Courtney who stands in for Castle in the more intense physical scenes.

Don't waste your time with this one.

I left the theater so disappointed wanting a refund.

Michael showing up behind people way too many times and the lights scene with the teenage guy Was just way to predictable.

It had some tense moments and some entertaining character beats.

Many reviews point out a raft of story flaws, characters who go missing, changing pace of film, poor wrtitting etc.For me it was just confusing, lacked the horror experience and was left dissapointed with the film.

Quite dull .

Very worst movie.

They made such a big deal about this film I really thought it was going to be something special, but all it turned out to be was complete waste of my time.

So Boring .

the worst movie ive ever seen please find another job .

MM was not spooky, the kills also looked pretty boring (imho).

so all in all not a good Movie, too long, boring in parts.

her character was boring, irritating, and just lame.

This to me is just mildly entertaining fan fiction.

The film seems disjointed and you don't get a sense of these characters so therefore you feel nothing towards them.

Movie's pointless really?

Predictable .

All in all an enjoyable experience, would reccomend.

I nearly walked out.

I will not go what exactly, but they were so obvious and so many (ofcourse cliche too) that I was more baffling how dum is this, how dum is that, than actually enjoying movie.

Don't waste your time.

You can feel the evil and power that The Shape possesses throughout, and the kills are on a different level of brutality this time around, and are built up brilliantly in every sequence by dense suspenseful atmosphere captured immensely with supreme camerawork similar to Carpenter's original vision.

I am still just thinking of watching it again it was so enjoyable to me.

It is scary, suspenseful and has a lot of references to other movies in the franchise.

The story is the furthest thing from engaging I have witnessed this year, and offers nearly nothing outside of the most surface level plot we already know of Halloween, which is already as minimal as it gets to begin with.

There seems to be only so many places films in this genre can go, and while this one is serviceable, the direction it takes is predictable and not all that satisfying, at least to me.

Predictable, with no serious plot, random killings (well that's the point) and no mystery.

It's stupid,predictable, repeating the same old story,bad acting,same story over and over again!

As the finale comes around, the stage is set for the ultimate face off between Laurie and Michael and it culminates to an absolutely riveting finish that's up there with the best moments of the entire franchise.

"Too much time devoted to teenagers and their mundane problems"?

For me, it just dragged.

The movie was predictable because too much was shared in the trailer and then it was also predictable because you could always tell what was about to happen I'm not sure what the people who are giving this film 8,9,10 rating or 4 out of 5 stars were watching but surely we haven't watched the same film because what I saw was not good.

I was extremely disappointed with this very dull sequel.

I fell asleep .

Slow .

If it's boring it's a total waste of time watching it.

Suprisingly enjoyable - a delightful homage .

The story is awkward and contrived, and the characters make every poor decision possible.

It would be unfair to expect more of this movie than of the original plots this movie spawned from, as such it was good, Jamie-Lee was great and I enjoyed it.

I must be honest went into this with an assumption that it's just another slasher dragging it out for more money and being totally predictable.

Bored me.

I do not understand the hype surrounding this movie, it was very slow paced, the characters were terrible, acting was mediocre at best.


The synth music surrounded by the very dark sounding electric guitar and bow instruments (I'm pretty sure it was maybe a violin) creating such an intense atmosphere and every piece of music fit with the film very well.

I mean it was good when the bus crashed and from then on but it's just slow.

other than that, it was just a snooze fest with cliche & irrelevant scenes.

Laurie is a compelling enough character to carry the story largely on her own with only small doses of help from her family.

And in some weird twisted part of my mind that's buried deep inside, I actually enjoyed it because this is the Michael Myers we've all been waiting for.

These scenes here are quite fun, ranging from the first attack at the remote gas-station where he takes out the two doing the TV show on the case to the rampage across the town taking out the stragglers around town setting up the big rampage at the end where he comes across the babysitter in the house and then leads him back to the trap-filled house at the end which has some rather enjoyable straightforward stalker action for these types of scenarios.

The cast was absurdly bland, as were the characters, some actually painful to observe.

Very boring and predictable.

This movie is on point scary and enjoyable.

As well as Allyson's boyfriend, it was absolutely pointless for him to be in the movie for 4 minutes and to be comepletely honest we all would have been fine without Allyson in the movie because all she did was give us mad anxiety.

This remake is just a boring movie with no scares just a guy running around going 'stabby stabby' to people no scares, no atmosphere just boring

It's worth a watch but it won't blow you away something fairly standard, predictable.

The "homage" ploy recycles old material, the rest is empty space making blind stabs in the dark at random.

Waste of my life.

but pry not cause I hear they're making a sequel (because of course) so he pry found a way to get out of the basement and escape (eye roll & yawn).

Started to get very boring at that point.

I don't mind a good slasher flick, but where the old ones had aged and had permission in their time to follow what's now considered cliche and predictable, the newer ones don't have the same privilege.

John Carpenter returns to compose a stunning new score and resurrects his iconic theme to accompany the opening credits that pay a perfect homage to his original film.

One off the worst movies I ever saw.

Irritatingly predictable and uneventful .

Another selling point for me going into it was the fact that John Carpenter did the music, but John Carpenter's music was so bland and cliche it was barely noticeable.

I am painfully bored with this theme from the very first Jason movie.

Pretty much predictable for the horror movie watchers.....

And it's boring too.

Dull, slow, barely telling something new..

Its bloody, its ferocious in places but most of all its yawn inducing.

Predictable boring and not scary at all .

It had uninteresting characters.

It retains some of that 70s 80s flair and style and unfortunately also the slower pace.

As far as cheesy horror endings go, I enjoyed it.

Directing was pretty solid - this movie barely dragged and was pretty entertaining from start till finish.

Michael Myers looks scary and some Of his kills are intense!

Boring and overrated.

Enjoyable finish to a long series .

Just too boring!

Yeah there were some good ideas i wish there had been multiple writers to scratch the dumb ones like the doctor and weak way they presented him removing the aura of supernatural villain to boring minded simpleton who stabbed a few people

Jamie Lee Curtis has returned, but gets nothing to do except play a fearless action hero, which make her Laurie Strode a strangely uninteresting character this go around.

Just another predictable, bad movie with no originality, quality or anything to it.

I watch this Halloween 2018 movie it felt like story line was so different and boring I almost fell asleep to it.

Everyone else is disposable or a cliche stereotype.

The kills are boring and honestly don't even look well done more rushed and stupid.

I found it boring personally.

There were a lot of nods and references to the 1978 original with the opening credits, music, kills and certain shots which were enjoyable to see.

There were also many opportunities where he could've been finished off, but they dragged it out by having the Grandma do stupid things.

Compelling from start to finish .

It links in to the first movie well (which if you think about too much had again plot holes) and give a thrilling ride.

It's hard to follow a classic and there will be a lot of hate for this film just because of that.

Boring and lame .

Such a lazy and predictable movie .

here, however, there is no worthy mise-en-scene at all .. and it's not as if Gordon Green and McBride and company even came close to successfully replicating the tight, taught, suspenseful, black-world starkness of John Carpenter's original ...

Michael Myers is supposed to be a regular man who has aged for 40 years since the original event, yet this slow, plodding, old man goes on to kill a bunch of people including the police force, with ease.

Save your money don't go see it in movie.

It's returned to the original roots of the first film and the result is an engrossing thriller with plenty of action.

Others have said that too much time is spent away from the Strode family, especially its deeply compelling matriarch.

And the ending was very anticlimactic, and sort of a yawn after all of the build up.

Halloween 2018, a "senseless fun" movie that focused hundred percent on women's power, setting aside the men who ended up doing nothing in the movie but dying in grotesque ways, thus having no impact on the story of the film, jumpscare in some situations were well introduced but in the course of the story is repetitive and reaches a point are "forced", Positive point is the nostalgia of the movie soundtrack that makes you shiver From a horror / suspense movie to an action movie, terrible choice.

All in all, nice to see again and it was a movie worth the watch!

It was the same but different and unexpected.

only rated 3 waste of money and waste of my time!

The concept of Laurie Strode becoming a monster as a result of the original was very predictable.

And again, with the Electric Guitar and Strings, it fit perfectly and made the scene one of the most intense in the film.

Terrible and Boring .

The story is so disjointed that it seems very rushed and feels like it was made just for the heck of it without any thought put into the writing

There was no story line her except for the same old crap that all of these horror movies have.

Don't waste your time .

But then, unlike the slightly overrated Haunting of Hill House, it used all that build up for a great, bloody and scary horror movie, including a riveting conclusion.

Why use the most boring prison escape situation you can choose from?

The film is predictable right from the start and the attenos attempts to make it scary fail.

"Halloween" is a boring, obnoxious mess.

Great for a Halloween fan.. but I feel a bit empty .

Slow .

Very predictable, not scary, almost laughable.

This one is a total waste of your time, No story line , its just a drag .

Season of the Witch was like a Tales From The Crypt (1989) episode, it was unique, dark and fascinating, everything that the Myers movie aren't.

An excellent performance from Jamie lee curtis & an exciting new Halloween atmosphere makes the new Halloween a very very good movie.

Stunning Sequel With Disclaimer .

This is one of the worst movies I have seen.

this movie could of ended 30 times, but was dragged out with the pursuit of a walking man, and one police car.

Highly enjoyable and engaging reboot .

For me the biggest flaw was the 3rd act - it dragged, dragged too much, so the culmination wasn't all that epic.

But personally I enjoyed it.

Dont waste your time.

I can forgive cardboard 1D teenagers (Allyson made it to 2D but more could have been made of her character and contribution), improvised bland dialogue and unnecessary humour to break the non-existent tension.

Another great part was when Lori was searching for Michael towards the end, it honestly had me on the edge, anxiously waiting for Michael to come out and it wasn't predictable at all when he'd jump out.

The pre-titles sequence is pretty dull with typical Hollywood style English actors of no fixed regional dialects who play journalists taunting a mental health patient under the watchful eyes of his doctor.

What does make this film worth watching is the direction.

Gripping, well acted, exciting, intriguing.

I mean, literally BORED!

The story and the development of characters are very dull.

I'm a huge Michael Myers fan and have waited a long time for this reboot and I feel it was the worst movie ever.

Even with all that, Michael Simmonds' cinematography, no holding an arresting track record, means several engrossing frames, sequences like the recreation of POV murder flashback, the aforementioned finale, Laurie madly shooting, the atmospheric opening sequence and even the nostalgia-packed opening credits are a big win as for the forgotten entries, representing 78's through a modern eye that, aesthetically, belongs to a great, appealing horror film.

Like all true fright flicks the characters make questionable decision after questionable decision, but after watching this movie, the only question I had was: why did I let me girlfriend convince me to waste my time and money on this trash.

Had no story line.

This was the biggest waste of an hour of my life that I'll never get back , this had so much room to be scary as hell and it just wasn't.

Save your money!

No tension, so predictable .

But, one of the most intense elements of the movie is the music.

A completely predictable rehash of the original with bad acting and dialogue.

What a complete waste of time!

Although every scene is completely predictable, it's entertaining to watch in theaters.

(Except for "Halloween 2", that's a classic)(No, not the Rob Zombie "Halloween 2", the one that followed the original Carpenter version)Anyway, there's also the character of Strode's granddaughter, who is a babysitter and has some boring and charisma-less friends.

Pure cliche in every scene and terrible acting and dialogue choices...

Much like the original, the final act is the strongest and most intense part of the film, and the final result is mostly satisfying.

Enjoyed it .

Yes, it is simply boring!

Don't waste your time .

I've seen all of them, and they're all fun (or at least enjoyable) in their own ways.

Worst movie I've ever spent money to watch.

ANYWAYS, it digs all 9 Halloween sequels from the grave, it then learns from its mistakes, studies their flaws, understands it's failures, but then it acknowledges the mark that all the films left on the franchise, this movie then begins to take elements from EVERY sequel to what made them good or at LEAST watchable, and pumps it with adrenaline mixes it in a bowl and adds its own future for it.

One of my most anticipated movies in years ended up being a fun, yet rather empty, viewing experience.

I wonder if the ambiuous ending means that we will get H60 in 2038, at least that one may be entertaining.

boring and same storyline as before , over the top gruesome kills for no reason?

That also makes the middle portion of this one leading into the finale feel way too sloppy and disjointed as it deals with the revelation that he's come back to the town as there are so many scenes going back-and-forth to the various figures in his way which really feel jumbled and disorganized as it tends to go through some rather confusing moments.

Pretty entertaining and well made .

Intense and not for the faint of heart, I would highly recommend Halloween to all Horror film fanatics.

Had potential but as soon as you clue on to the bratty motivations of Carpenter it will bore you to tears.

In this movie, Karen felt too normal for somebody who went through an intense paranoid, apocalyptic survival uplifting.

Some scenes are intense and have that classic, slow suspense tone to them.

Couple this with the empty TP rollers, grimy floors, dingy walls, rust-stained fixtures, and moldy ceilings typifying an Illinois "Ladies Room," and it's not hard to see why MOST women try to "hold it:," even if their trek through Lincoln Land lasts two or three days.

One of the worst movie that I ever have seen.. I really don't understand how can this movie have that good rating and reviews.. A movie totally without logic, pretending that Michael is overpowered immortal superhero.

Brillant acting, brilliant film, loved it so gripping and scary at times would recommend

There was no scares, no plot, rather poor acting and an even worse script.

I struggled to stay awake.

I actually found it quite boring and predictable.

It's become repetitive.

The bad's included the boring and dull style of the film, the dialogue and lazy characters that I couldn't give a crap about.

Derivative and boring.

At times I even found it boring.

This film is slow.

I don't waste even waste my time to complete my review for this disaster!!!

Honestly a waste of time and money, and a disgrace to the franchise.

Boring, zero suspense, completely unlikeable characters every single one.

A lot of the movie just drags on, and most of the story lines that are set up either aren't very interesting (like the subplot with her granddaughter) or just don't go anywhere (the knockoff Loomis) There are good things here, so check it out if you're curious, but for me, a lot of it just felt pointless.

The answer, it is going nowhere.

But after watching 15 minutes of the movie it simply became to predictable even if you never watched Halloween before never heard of it ..it would still be a major let down !

How on earth did this movie get so high reviews,, Its boring, it goes on and on, the acting is awful in places, it was like watching the first Halloween movie with different actors in it.

Enjoyable slasher and a worthy sequel .

What a waste of time.

That's right, 40 years have gone by both inside and outside the fiction, and Laurie Strode, our unpredictable scream-queen, has prepared for the inevitable caged in memories; armed to the teeth, she's ready to get an end to this long-time nightmare once and for all.

I recommend anyone who is a fan of Halloween, or just someone wanting to watch an entertaining horror movie, to see it.


Boring and unoriginal .

Bunch of cliches, awful dialogues and cheap and predictable situations.

Boring, boring and again boring.

Not a single scary moment in this childish, dopey, and predictable piece if absolute garbage.

Very boring.

Please don't waste your money.

No suspense, no tense screens, just very mundane.

Predictable and boring .

Pointless/Plotless .

This New sequel however is another predictable piece hollywood garbage.

Sheer waste of time.


Way too slow in the beginning, way too fast paced at the end .

The story was so predictable and boring.

I left the theater with a empty feeling.

But the film is far from scary or suspenseful.

Waste of time .

I Got Bored .

Super predictable, time to close the book on the franchise.

Because of these two flaws, Halloween isn't perfect, but entertaining, and it did some stuff way better than the first one: the performances, the pacing of the movie which this one was more fast-paced and the breathtaking moments.

Overall I guess you can call this a crowd pleaser movie, I am pretty sure that people are going to have a good time with it, and I guess it's ok in that sense, going into a theater watching a slightly stupid slightly entertaining horror movie, munching pop corn and then immediately forgetting about it.

The storyline is amazingly both predictable and badly constructed.

What a waste of time .

I found this utterly dull from start to 80 minutes in, when my body gave rebelled and fell asleep.

A Waste of Time .

It's not gonna find its place in lists of legendary horror movies, but it was damn entertaining.

Aside from the forgetting/ignoring it was a reboot thing, the movie had several plot points that simply went nowhere, and it had a stupid twist in making Michael's doctor evil.

If you can forgive the exaggerated personality of Laurie Strode and the lack of character development of the younger cast, you will find Halloween (2018) an exciting experience.

Palm trees in many scenes, no story development, sloppy/dumb storytelling.

It's a completely waste of time.

) and despite mining every horror cliché known to man (ALWAYS look in the back seat when you get in a car!

While this does serve the plot, it also is a bit illogical, if she truly was that PTSD ridden she would not have remained in such close proximity to where her former assailant was housed, and Curtis performance ranges From excellent to disjointed in some scenes.

Even when the story isn't exceptional, it is exciting to go back to Haddonfield for a good 'last' scare.

But this is really getting boring; there just aren't enough fresh ideas to justify another Halloween movie; this is a cash grab.

A typical slasher with all corny twists and dull moments.

Other than that, this was a enjoyable film.

But it ended up being a typical horror-slasher movie with no thrills, couple of clever shots, non existing plot, boring characters and a cool depiction of Michael.

I won't even bother giving examples or spoilers, there are enough of those, just a warning to save your money and see another movie.

i literally wanted to leave the hall in between it was so boring.. please do not watch this movie, just a waste of time.

As things progress and the inevitable happens, things start getting incredibly intense when the bloodshed and unhinged obliteration by Myers kicks off.

This movie is boring.

Slow, boring and lacking surprises.

The first 20 minutes are absolutely boring.. Then when good stuff should happen, it's over too quickly, storyline barely built up to anything.

Reverential to the original classic, it made for some entertaining reactions in the sparsely populated showing I attended: I imagine if seen in a packed auditorium on a Saturday night (or perhaps tomorrow night!

There is a twist of a sort, though I'm not sure even if that's what it is since it is immediately tossed out, thus all together pointless.

The story is compelling (apart from a certain twist concerning the Dr. in the third act) and the kills are better and more brutal than they have ever been - even better than Rob Zombie's Halloween.

I found at least three quarters of it about as boring and worthless as a horror blockbuster can be; I wanted to walk out really badly.

Dont waste your time .

some of the things disspointed in spoilers ahead one it was too long i getting bored near the end.

This is a movie filled with bland characters, awkward dialogue (some of which was pointlessly humorous and had no place in a horror film), and a final act that we all saw coming about 15 minutes into the movie.

A very enjoyable movie to watch while halloween is taking place irl.

waste of time.

Everything was predictable.

Not a lot of focus on the killing, not a lot of blood or gore, no sex, all the things you see in a cliche slasher which isn't bad just kinda boring.

Intense .

I suppose it leaves it open for another, Micheal is obviously not dead, and the granddaughter with the knife was intriguing.

The ending also left the film feeling quite pointless and unneeded after all of the anticipation.

Crazy mental institute was quite an intense scene to watch before the classic Halloween title rolls with a modified version of the brilliant John Carpenters soundtrack showing the crushed pumpkin slowly putting itself back together.

It's not scary, there's no story, I couldn't care less about the characters, the acting is really bad, no atmosphere, nothing.

Many potentially suspenseful moments are undercut by poor moments of humor that fall flat more often than not.

The acting in this film is excellent and the dialogue is quite fascinating as we are reunited with the classic town of Haddonfield and its' new generation of victims to be.

The film focused too much on new and uninteresting characters apart from Laurie's daughter and granddaughter.

Overall this was an entertaining movie with a great performance by Jamie Lee Curtis.

It's just kind of confusing if you and you're friends are trying to watch and you say, oh let's watch Halloween, that's when you'd say, the good or the trashy one??

Basically this whole movie is pointless.

But he sure provides something unexpected.

Just an entertaining Mainstream-Movie .

Terrible, predictable and simply awful.

Because they are not, however, it simply becomes gratuitous and rather pointless to spend time with disposable characters purely to show us a bloody kill or two.

Here we have a director with a good reputation (David Gordon Green; "Joe", "Pineapple Express"), and the respectable lead heroine Jamie Lee Curtis, coming forward with a pretentious promotional campaign stating that their new film is a direct sequel to the almighty 1978 original.

Enjoyed it, but needed to slow the pace down, even Myers at 61 seemed quicker in his stride than he did 40 years ago, felt like I still needed a reason for his need to kill, without the sister thing it felt empty.

Horrible and confusing .

Worst movie that I have ever seen!

The opening scene and credits were intense and very refreshing.

Predictable, boring, shouldn't have been made .

a waste of time .

And for this we are grateful, as Jamie Lee Curtis tries to bury her past once and for all with tense and action packed results.

Boring & a slap to the original franchise .


Simple Review: Bad acting (except for Jamie Lee Curtis), terrible writing and just plain boring.

Really fun to watch, was more enjoyable for me than the original.

The one unpredictable scene and it's for the worse not better!

Waste of Money.

Very Long, Muddled, and Mundane Movie .

Literally one of the worst movies i've ever seen specially the ending , advice : dont waste your time

I enjoyed it overall, it has some great nods to the original.

But as with Myers himself, the film is rather banal.

Worst movie .

The only thing I can compare it to is the worst, most formulaic, most forgettable horror movies of the 80's...

So in short when 'Halloween' delves into it's adult characters and the series rich mythology it's outstanding, you just have to endure some cliche teens getting cut up.

I'm all for nostalgia, but this was so boring.

boring .

Every single killing and scary moment was predictable, you knew every one of them was coming.

The upgraded background score on the original version by Carpenter himself, is astonishing and breathtaking that creates a dreadful impact among the viewers.

It's just so slow.

The biggest problem with this film, is that it never get's on, it's very similiar of Halloween movies that have been made in the few years back, just lame and boring.

Don't waste your time people, you'll just be amazed with stupidity.

The people are so dull and boring and don't do squat.

Totally worth watching.

Pointless .

" My brother and I made fun of it as we watched to keep from getting bored or angry.

Michael Myers is by far one of the most heart pounding horror villains, and he is so utterly unpredictable in this film that it kept me constantly at the edge of my seat.

An unusual amount of time is dedicated to Laurie's uninteresting granddaughter and her even less interesting friends at a school party/rave, whereas this time should have instead focused on Laurie herself.

Very predictable movie, plain murderer, the film is not particularly suspenseful, In short, I was not very connected.

Pointless remake.

So many pointless plot lines that went nowhere and a stupidly obscure "twist" at the end that I'm not sure I get.

Now that I've said all that, let me finish the final scene of this movie (only because I'm extremely bored with nothing else to do).

Boring .

The script does have a few laughs but any fears that David Gordon Green and Danny McBride might have made a parody film can be allayed, though I do think it crossed the line from homage to cliché a few times.

Myers was his usual terrifying self but it was ruined by everybody being so completely dumb and predictable!

Even if some viewers may find the humour out of place, I enjoyed it.

It's stupid and it's boring and has not one worthy scene of note.

There are plenty of twists in the story and you will be on the edge of your seat as tension builds throughout the movie.

The first scene where the investigation reporters were taughting Michael with the mask and it got very climatic I thought here we go this is gonna be good and then cut to the old school style opening credits I enjoyed that they kept with the original film and kept that connection but from there it went downhill very fast, the film actually got boring I was bored.

Except for deluded fans of franchise this movie is exciting same as going to visit your elder parents at retirement home and having "fun" so if you are not fanatical fan don't bother watching it, you will die from boredom.

Instead of predictable jump scares and excessive gore, Carpenter used suspense and atmosphere to get under your skin.

There's a way to do horror in a manner that is compelling.

Part of what makes a great suspenseful horror film is having characters we fear for instead of sacrificial lambs getting gutted.

It's fast paced and never is boring.

Along these lines, her daughter Karen (Judy Greer) is portrayed as dismissive and in her own way very damaged by the intense fear and paranoia that her mother has never been able to let go of.

The original movie is cited as being an effectively suspenseful horror film and fully bringing the slasher sub-genre into the mainstream.

This isn't really a Halloween movie, it's a just a bit lame and predictable, nothing new or exciting happens, you can see the ending before you even start watching.

Last, if a sequel to a movie is going to be utter trash, SAVE YOUR MONEY MAKING THE MOVIE!!!

The scenes are cliched, predictable, and insulting to the viewer.

What's going on the screen it is terribly boring and makes me feel nothing.

Save your money and wait for it on Netflix.

It has a pretentiousness to it that is misplaced by filmmakers who claimed to have love for the material, yet have only produced what I'd consider to be weak, predictable fan service.

What a waste of time .

The jump scares were predictable and you knew when they would happen because every single one of them were in the trailer EVERY ONE!

Plenty of Horrible Millennials worth watching get slaughtered .

I found the first film enjoyable and Rob Zombie's 2007 reboot breathed new life into a fairly standard central character.

Although the movie wasn't quite as scary as I hoped it would be, there were a few parts that were undeniably intense and creepy.

Predictable to pain, weak jump scare scene, no story, one-dimensional and oblivious characters, and the end is totally anti-climatic and virtually meaningless.

I feel sorry for Michael Myers ending in such a boring movie.

Waste of time .

Boring and pointless.

The film had a number of slow scenes.

Before I get into the negative part of my review I wanted to make it clear that I really did find the film enjoyable, despite the many issues it has.

This serves as a solid and highly enjoyable entry in the series.

Entertaining flick.

Horrible And Predictable .

If you add all that to how disjointed this film felt it's a huge disappointment.

Worst movie ever.

Scary fun and entertaining!

Dull as dishwater, 2 out of ten

Entertaining Nostalgia .

The use of long takes were cleverly implemented to help with the flow of certain scenes and keep the viewers engaged and immersed in the film.

To make matters worse, Curtis' Laurie is pushed into the background a bit too much and we're stuck with a group of all new characters who are either poorly drawn, boring, unlikable, or a mix of all three.

Boring movie .

It's intense, frightening and fun.

The acting was subpar, the plot was boring, and Michael lacked his...

It's a shame then that when watching this film after the fact of these praises and success I found Halloween a shallow and consistently frustrating experience (filled with some of the most glaringly dumb character decisions of the year) that fails to create any real frights around its wince inducing gore and utterly predictable plot line.

So I'm sorry; this is not being pernickety about small detail, this is saying that this is a shallow film where the vast majority of the plotline is blindingly obvious and thoroughly contrived, thus robbing the film of any build-up or tension.

Just when it should have ramped up, they threw in a completely pointless plot point that literally did nothing for the story, apart from make it go on for longer.

Green takes his time to set up the plot but once Myers escapes from his captivity, the story kicks up a notch and becomes a downright thrilling ride till the end.

3 Point for acting One of the worst movies ever.

Laurie Strode's role is soooo annoying and all the movie is so focus on her that this movie should be called "Jason's sister" haha Jamie Lee Curtis is an amazing actress but this role doesn't suit her, looks and sounds over pretentious in a failed attempt to embrace the psycho role of a sister that is not even important for Halloween and should not be more important than Jason.

also, his way of doing it is boring enough, so one should come up with some sort of a reasonable background maybe?

Even the majority of the violence is uninteresting or not shown at all.

If you're not a fanboy or girl of the Halloween franchise, you're gonna want to sit this one out because I'm literally watching the movie right now and it is BORING.

I had high hopes for this but left the theater really disappointed.
