Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who 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. Master of horror John Carpenter joins forces with director David Gordon Green and producer Jason Blum (Get Out, Split) for this follow up to Carpenter's 1978 classic.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Halloween largely wipes the slate clean after decades of disappointing sequels, ignoring increasingly elaborate mythology in favor of basic - yet still effective - ingredients.

Satisfying horror sequel has tons of blood, strong language.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Halloween is a direct sequel to the iconic same-named 1978 slasher film that ignores every other sequel and reboot (all nine of them). Survivor Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis), now a grandmother, has been single-mindedly preparing herself for the day that masked killer Michael Myers would come for her again. Spoiler alert: He does. Expect graphic, very gory slasher violence and strong language ("f--k," "s--t," etc.) throughout the movie. The brutal killings include stabbings, slashings, impalings, beheadings, bludgeonings, and more. There's also brief nudity, teen sexuality, and some drinking/drug use by both adults and teens. The movie is directed by indie star David Gordon Green and co-written by Green and Danny McBride. Will Patton and Judy Greer co-star.
