It's the kind of film that appears to have been made by filmmakers who don't understand a thing about storytelling, pacing, tone, or atmosphere, which is only made all the more shocking by the fact that it was directed by the legendary John Carpenter.

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.

Director John Carpenter is unable to generate anything resembling suspense or even basic narrative fluidity.

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
January 1, 2000
Carpenter's updating of the classic 1960 chiller is mediocre at best, and at times plummets into unintentional humor.
