There's no evidence of craftsmanship or energy. Everything, from the plot to the execution, is plodding and obligatory.

Guilty of the worst sin of attributable to a movie like this: it's not scary in the slightest.

Provides the Halloween franchise with a clear, objective Worst Movie Of The Series...a virtually flawless collection of all the things that can make a slasher film unwatchable.

While the camera gimmick is put to good use once the bodies start piling up, the movie fails in several ways, not the least of which is it's never even a little bit scary.

Replacing John Carpenter's stylish tracking shots is degraded, handheld Blair Witch video-cam footage. Of all the Halloween's, this is the most visually unappealing.

A única pessoa que se deu bem com este filme foi Jamie Lee Curtis, que garantiu sua saída definitiva da série.

Every sequel you skip will be two hours gained. Consider this review life-affirming.

It's so devoid of joy and energy it makes even Jason X ... look positively Shakesperean by comparison.

Redo the first movie, add a reality show element where everybody wears a personal cameras so not only do we get overacting, we get fuzzy video feeds and bad camera angles.

A pretty funny comedy starring the one, the only, the incomparable...Busta Rhymes.

Our once-shadowy, nightmarish figure is now shot exclusively in overlit, sitcom styled close-ups.

A Blair Witch- style adventure that plays like a bad soap opera, with passable performances from everyone in the cast.

Myers shows up and slaughters almost everyone until martial-artist Harris and Sara Moyer team up to shock him in the nuts and say things like: "Trick or treat, motherf***er!"

While this is neither the first nor last time that will be the case, it is time to hang, gun down or lop off the head of this ugly cinematic series once and for all.

The movie is like a year late for tapping into our reality tv obsession, and even tardier for exploiting the novelty of the "webcast."
