Brandon Bzduch’s review published on Letterboxd:
This is maybe the best modern slasher I’ve seen? It’s an accurate homage without feeling like it’s dangling nostalgia in your face the whole time. The kills are great, the characters are great, and the whole tone and visuals are so spot on, and it doesn’t rely solely on references to sell itself, which is something the first part sadly did. Imagine if the first Friday The 13th wasn’t complete garbage. This is what I hoped Halloween 2018 would’ve been, and it’s genuinely great.
You’re probably asking “how tf is this a 4.5/5?”
I literally have nothing bad to say about this. It was a total blast from start to finish and it nailed everything it set out to do.
Or I have no standards, idk. This was spectacular.
