This was better than I expected! Some clunky writing, but the cast was solid, it had some fun with the tropes, and it moved along breezily. I agree with Yes that Melissa Barrera was the weak link; not bad, just exceptionally bland compared to a bunch of much more interesting actors like Jenna Ortega and Jack Quaid. Overall, a better instance of the current wave of nostalgia horror than the last Halloween or the new TCSM.

Definitely better than the new Halloweens. I also liked how everyone in Woodsboro didn't even have to DISCUSS whether to start accusing each other or not - they jump straight into it and don't even take it personally. Felt like that was played better here than the "mob mentality" stuff of Halloween Kills.

I don't think this movie needed Gale or Sydney Prescott in it to work but they didn't hamper the material either. And Dewey SHINES!! Possibly my favorite of David Arquette's performances after the original.
