The film received mixed reviews. As of September 30, 2007 on Rotten Tomatoes, 24% of critics gave the film positive reviews based on 86 reviews (21 "fresh", 65 "rotten").[11] On Metacritic, the film has a score of 47 out of 100, based on 18 reviews.[12]

Bill Gibron of PopMatters gave the film a 9 out of 10 and said the film was "brilliant" and "a stroke of slice and dice genius."[13] James Berardinelli of ReelViews gave the film 2 out of 4 stars and said "Although it's not saying much, this is director Rob Zombie's most impressive outing behind the camera."[14]

The film broke box-office records for the Labor Day weekend. It pulled in USD$31 million dollars over the four-day holiday weekend, surpassing the record set in 2005 by Transporter 2 of $20.1 million dollars, making it the most successful Labor Day weekend opening in history. Furthermore, it surpassed the record set in 1999 by The Sixth Sense of $29 million dollars (in its fifth weekend), making it the highest grossing film over the Labor Day weekend ever. [15] Despite the film's opening weekend success, Bob Weinstein told Reuters that he doubts there would be another Halloween film, stating "I never say never never ... but it would have to be something very, very different".[16]

In its eighth week Halloween brought in $110,492.[17]

As of October 30, 2007, Halloween has grossed $64,988,271 worldwide, making it the highest grossing entry in the franchise to date (not adjusting the grosses of earlier films for inflation).

DVD release

The DVD of the film is due on December 18, 2007.[18]
