|Language||Frequent with Strong impact, crude language expresses swear words as well as references to other elements (such as Substance Abuse and SRA). This could be considered normal by children and therefore not suitable for impressionable younger viewers.|
|Nudity||Low infrequent Nudity is seen in the form of bare breasts of an older teenager. This was considered too low and too infrequent for consumer advice in this age category.|
|Violence||Very Strong, Very Frequent Violence is intertwined with Horror. Also thematic, it is terrifying, brutal, gruesome, graphic and gory and therefore not suitable for younger children. Violence includes all forms of violence: guns, knives, strangulation, being impaled and burnt, amongst other weaponry.|
|Comments||With Strong to Very Strong themes, Halloween is a Horror Thriller drama about an escaped mental asylum prisoner Michael Myers, deranged serial killer (the 'boogie-man') who killed his sister when he was just 6 years old. In the process of being transferred to another maximum security prison facility he escapes to go on a killing spree with his killing mask on, when he mingles amongst party goers also wearing Halloween masks. He has not spoken in 40 years and the film is fraught with threat and menace throughout. The murders are multiple and graphic, brutal, gory and gruesome. Other complex and mature themes explored are: the mind of a serial killer and predator, captivity, 'rehabilitation' and chained patients, vengeance and revenge, tying up loose ends as well as investigative journalism, family dynamics, and finally teamwork to kill the 'boogie man'. The graphic nature of the Violence could cause moral, psychological and emotional harm to children.|

What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Mpho Rantao Halloween is a real slasher.
Petrus Malherbe 'Halloween' vir die #metoo-era.
Gabi Zietsman While Halloween remains a classic horror that presents an evil with no agenda except to create as much carnage as possible, it also becomes the survivor’s story and her attempts to triumph over trauma. One pivotal scene nails that narrative to the wall, making for the best sequel to Halloween we could have hoped for, and a rebirth of a classic terror for the modern age.
Jim Judy Bland and instantly forgettable into the flotsam consisting of most of the rest of the flicks in this franchise/
Tomatometer Halloween largely wipes the slate clean after decades of disappointing sequels, ignoring increasingly elaborate mythology in favor of basic - yet still effective - ingredients.
