Fourth entry in the Halloween horror series is a no-frills, workmanlike picture.
The shocks are infinitesimal, the script diabolical.
It seems the latest stage in some curious evolutionary pattern; the slasher species keeps proliferating and getting weaker at the same time.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
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.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
