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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

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

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

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

Boy, this one's rich.

The shocks are infinitesimal, the script diabolical.

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

H4 is very much the cheap knockoff of its prototype, but not half as visceral.

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

One of the best chapters of the series...really novel
| Original Score: 3/5
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.
