    Like its parade of predecessors, this Halloween is a gory slash-fest. It can't escape its past, and it doesn't want to.

    If you only want a sequence of slashings, impalements and head-squishings, you'll get your money's worth. But if you like a little movie with your mayhem, you're out of luck.
  3. It's all very pat and, ultimately, annoying.

    If, as it appears, Rosenthal is competing with the knife-wielding Myers for the title of biggest hack, he wins by unanimous decision.
  5. 30
    It seems content to plod listlessly through the motions.
  6. 30
    It's not the worst film in the series -- "Halloween III" will never be unseated -- but there's not nearly enough scares, or humor, to make Halloween: Resurrection worthwhile.
  7. 25
    There's no evidence of craftsmanship or energy. Everything, from the plot to the execution, is plodding and obligatory.
  8. 20
    Spectators will indeed sit open-mouthed before the screen, not screaming but yawning.
  9. 20
    After almost twenty five years, the Halloween series has been reduced to a false alarm. ...the characters are so devoid of human feeling they accomplish the task of making us not wish they were dead, but just gone.

    More uselessly redundant and shamelessly money-grubbing than most third-rate horror sequels.
  11. 0
    It's so devoid of joy and energy it makes even "Jason X" - a recent attempt to prolong the rival "Friday the 13th" slasher franchise - look positively Shakesperean by comparison.
  12. 0
    Forget this dreck: Where's that Michael vs. Jason grudge match we've been hearing about for the last decade?
  13. Halloween: Resurrection comes closer to comatainment.

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. This isn't the best nor the worst of the halloween films. I do agree with one of the reviewers they put jamie lee curtis in to get a couple extra people to go and waste their hard earned cash, yes the story could have been a lot better, but I actually enjoyed Halloween: Ressurection. It ended in a creepy way and I was entertained by it. Full Review »

    I like the reality horror thing, but this is not a good way to end the series.
