While it's definitely not the best of the series, it's an entertaining slasher film...
September 12, 2012
Young Ms. Harris is probably the movie's most powerful element.
October 28, 2008
Feels more like an obligatory teen slasher than the previous films...but gets the job done.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
August 3, 2008
Though it is a slasher movie at all points, it's an atypically intelligent example of the form...a quantum leap better than its two immediate predecessors.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
August 27, 2007
The best of the sequels to Carpenter's seminal slasher movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
August 27, 2007
Fourth entry in the Halloween horror series is a no-frills, workmanlike picture.
August 18, 2006
Although this is just more of the same old same, Halloween 4 is directed with some skill by B-movie specialist Dwight H. Little.

June 24, 2006
The shocks are infinitesimal, the script diabolical.
March 10, 2005
One of the best chapters of the series...really novel
| Original Score: 3/5
November 29, 2003
While Part 4 is better than Part 3, it is still worse than, say, being bitten in the retina by fire ants.
Full Review | Original Score: D

Boy, this one's rich.
| Original Score: 2/5

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

...[Donald Pleasance's Dr. Loomis] doesn't once refer to Myers as "pure evil," though he does call him "evil on two legs" which is almost as good...

July 26, 2002
And in the faint praise department: "Halloween 4" is just a little bit better than most of the sequels that followed.
| Original Score: 2/5
January 27, 2002
The first half of the film is better than any fourth sequel in a slasher flick franchise deserves to be.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
January 1, 2000
H4 is very much the cheap knockoff of its prototype, but not half as visceral.
January 1, 2000
Of all the Halloween sequels, including the irrelevant and unwatchable Halloween III, Halloween 4 stands out as the best of a generally uninspired lot.
