Director Rick Rosenthal ("Halloween II") seems to have forgotten everything he ever knew about generating suspense, relying on cliched shadows and grainy, handheld images supposedly shot by the increasingly terrified students.

If you only want a sequence of slashings, impalements and head-squishings, you'll get your money's worth. But if you like a little movie with your mayhem, you're out of luck.

Like its parade of predecessors, this Halloween is a gory slash-fest. It can't escape its past, and it doesn't want to.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
It's all very pat and, ultimately, annoying.

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.

San Francisco Chronicle
Cheesy.

ReelViews
There's no evidence of craftsmanship or energy. Everything, from the plot to the execution, is plodding and obligatory.

After almost twenty five years, the Halloween series has been reduced to a false alarm. ...the characters are so devoid of human feeling they accomplish the task of making us not wish they were dead, but just gone.

Halloween: Resurrection comes closer to comatainment.

New York Post
It's so devoid of joy and energy it makes even "Jason X" - a recent attempt to prolong the rival "Friday the 13th" slasher franchise - look positively Shakesperean by comparison.

Forget this dreck: Where's that Michael vs. Jason grudge match we've been hearing about for the last decade?
