It's lean and well made, but my god is it unmemorable. I thought we had something interesting in the first act, and then it just... goes nowhere really.

6/10? idk
there is that one out of left field twist in the third act though

..that quickly peters out

Yeah that scene was deliberately played like that. Honestly the only time movie ventured into actually silly territory.
When he says so that's how it feels to kill or something, I was like really?? You can do better than that. Thankfully all that didn't last much long.

He looked worn out in that video.

Anyway, I'm pretty much in agreement with most other people on here. I thought it was decent, but was surprised it didn't focus more on Laurie. Nothing's going to top the 1978 original, but this is and Halloween 4 are the only decent sequels in the series. I'd give it 3/5.
