It's terrifying to think a studio would make such nonsense. Possible retitling? 'the Death of Luke Skywalker'?

The real shock came when I noticed that a woman filing out of the premiere screening beside me had actually marked her rating card with an "excellent" grade.

Carpenter, whose batting average is dipping dangerously low, shows no grasp of character development, plot line or time passage.

Carpenter can't cloak the hilarity of this hoary horror tale.

Austin Chronicle

Carpenter's updating of the classic 1960 chiller is mediocre at best, and at times plummets into unintentional humor.

Needless and undeveloped subplots dissipate the clean suspense of the original, and the exponential increase in violence and gore cannot conceal this.
