[Seems] even more uselessly redundant and shamelessly money-grubbing than most third-rate horror sequels.

While the production values here are more cool than crappy, there's nothing really new about Resurrection.

A cheesy thing that opened Friday without any advance screening.

Spectators will indeed sit open-mouthed before the screen, not screaming but yawning.

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.

Generic slasher-movie nonsense, but it's not without style.

The thrill is (long) gone.

No, it's not as single-minded as John Carpenter's original, but it's sure a lot smarter and more unnerving than the sequels.

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

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

This latest installment of the horror film franchise that is apparently as invulnerable as its trademark villain has arrived for an incongruous summer playoff, demonstrating yet again that the era of the intelligent, well-made B movie is long gone.

The latest entry in the horror series is simply a slasher flick. At that level, it's not bad, with some clever twists on the genre.

| Original Score: 3/5

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

Its premise is smart, but the execution is pretty weary.

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