While it's definitely not the best of the series, it's an entertaining slasher film...

Young Ms. Harris is probably the movie's most powerful element.
Dustin Putman
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

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.

One of the best chapters of the series...really novel

The first half of the film is better than any fourth sequel in a slasher flick franchise deserves to be.

Fourth entry in the Halloween horror series is a no-frills, workmanlike picture.

Although this is just more of the same old same, Halloween 4 is directed with some skill by B-movie specialist Dwight H. Little.

The shocks are infinitesimal, the script diabolical.

While Part 4 is better than Part 3, it is still worse than, say, being bitten in the retina by fire ants.

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

...[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...
