Fourth entry in the Halloween horror series is a no-frills, workmanlike picture.

It seems the latest stage in some curious evolutionary pattern; the slasher species keeps proliferating and getting weaker at the same time.

H4 is very much the cheap knockoff of its prototype, but not half as visceral.

Of all the Halloween sequels, including the irrelevant and unwatchable Halloween III, Halloween 4 stands out as the best of a generally uninspired lot.
