Halloween: Resurrection Reviews

Top Critic
October 19, 2018
Stay away unless you like kitschy early internet nostalgia and lots of blurry found-footage trickery.
July 15, 2002
[Seems] even more uselessly redundant and shamelessly money-grubbing than most third-rate horror sequels.
July 15, 2002
While the production values here are more cool than crappy, there's nothing really new about Resurrection.
July 15, 2002
A cheesy thing that opened Friday without any advance screening.
July 15, 2002
Spectators will indeed sit open-mouthed before the screen, not screaming but yawning.
July 15, 2002
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.
July 15, 2002
Generic slasher-movie nonsense, but it's not without style.
July 15, 2002
The thrill is (long) gone.
July 15, 2002
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.
July 14, 2002
There's no evidence of craftsmanship or energy. Everything, from the plot to the execution, is plodding and obligatory.
July 14, 2002
It's so devoid of joy and energy it makes even Jason X ... look positively Shakesperean by comparison.
July 14, 2002
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.
July 14, 2002
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.
July 13, 2002
Comes closer to comatainment.
July 13, 2002
Like its parade of predecessors, this Halloween is a gory slash-fest. It can't escape its past, and it doesn't want to.
July 12, 2002
Its premise is smart, but the execution is pretty weary.
July 10, 2002
Every sequel you skip will be two hours gained. Consider this review life-affirming.
