News Reviews from #TIFF World Premiere of ‘Halloween’ Call it the Best Since Carpenter’s Original Published 2 years ago on September 9, 2018 By Nick Bond Share Tweet David Gordon Green’s Halloween received rave reviews and impressed everyone when it world premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last night. Before we begin, you won’t find any spoilers here at Dark Universe. The following mini reviews are genuine non-spoilers from viewers via Twitter posts. We’ll start with Blumhouse’s Ryan Turek, who was left feeling emotional after such a stunning response form the fans. Shaking. The response to this screening nearly brought me to tears. So happy… — Ryan Turek (@_RyanTurek) September 9, 2018 So #Halloween is a whole hell of a lot of fun. It has a number of dynamite old school slasher sequences that make Michael a FORCE again, and Laurie Strode has never been better. Fans will love it. #TIFF — David Crow (@DCrowsNest) September 9, 2018 Just saw #Halloween at the #MidnightMadness screening. It was INCREDIBLE! Not sure how fans are going to survive, not only due to the tension, but it also has the most crowd pleasing moments in the franchise. I literally cheered from my seat. #TIFF @jamieleecurtis @missjudygreer pic.twitter.com/fcNkyuOjJH — Lauren Bradshaw (@flickchickdc) September 9, 2018 Halloween was fucking fantastic! Gory, entertaining, scary and hilarious! Everyone brought their A game. Ya’ll ain’t ready. #HalloweenMovie #TIFF #TIFF18 — Adddaaaammmm (@Adamnfilms) September 9, 2018 Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie Strode and satisfyingly faces off against Michael Meyers 40 years later in David Gordon Green’s Halloween— in the style of John Carpenter and with his rocking score.#TIFF pic.twitter.com/MURzwjEgGG — Anne Thompson (@akstanwyck) September 9, 2018 We Just Got Done Watching “Halloween” 2018 At @TIFF_NET And Guys OMG!!

Can’t wait for you all to read my review later Sunday! #TIFF18 pic.twitter.com/QpJMqnfUNw — Jim Vejvoda @ TIFF (@JimVejvoda) 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: David Gordon Green delivers the fresh, funny, frightening Halloween movie fans have been waiting forever for. Great callbacks to the original, a killer Carpenter score, a ferocious Jamie Lee performance. Halloween rocks. #TIFF — Adam Graham (@grahamorama) 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 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 I was always gonna be an easy lay with #HalloweenMovie but they really nailed it. Some will have quibbles — it’s maybe *too* funny, and one little twist might have been too much — but scary AF plus Force Awakens levels of fan service = very good times. #tiff18 — Joel Meares (@joelmeares) 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 #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 YES YES YES! David Gordon Green delivers the best #Halloween sequel to date with real visceral thrills, great comedy, brutal violence clever nods to the original and a terrific exercise in restraint. Very much channeling Carpenter who’s score is his best work to date. #TIFF18 pic.twitter.com/yZ7PdbQUwF — TIFF Schiller 2K18 (@griffschiller) September 9, 2018 #Halloween is a worthy and true sequel to the 1978 original. So many bad ass moments from the amazing @jamieleecurtis and so many great and gasp-worthy kills. So glad we were apart of the audience at the world premiere. #TIFF #TIFF2018 #MidnightMadness @mmadnesstiff — AC (@jumbatronic) September 9, 2018 HALLOWEEN 2018: holy fucking shit, what an ending. women take back your trauma and watch the men that cause it burn to the ground. carpenter’s score is sensational pic.twitter.com/jWXae5dAty — andres @ TIFF (@andreshjimenezz) September 9, 2018 Synopsis: “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.” The film stars Jamie Lee Curtis, who returns as Laurie Strode, Nick Castle, who reprises his role as Michael Myers, stuntman and actor James Jude Courtney will also don the mask, Judy Greer plays Karen, the daughter of Laurie, Andi Matichak plays Allyson, the daughter of Greer and the granddaughter of Laurie Strode, Virginia “Ginny“ Gardner plays Vicky, Miles Robbins plays Dave, Dylan Arnold plays Cameron, and Drew Scheid plays Oscar.
