Chicago Reader
Rosenthal observes all the ritual elements -- a veteran of the series, he seems to understand that its fans crave certainty over shock.

New Times (L.A.)
Thing is, movie's 100 percent mystery-free, but mildly creative, mixing Psych 101 with cynical Hollywood in-jokes with Tylenol-sponsored grainy-cam footage. Best revelation is source of Myers' superhuman strength: eats big rats, apparently.

L.A. Weekly
If, as it appears, Rosenthal is competing with the knife-wielding Myers for the title of biggest hack, he wins by unanimous decision.

The A.V. Club
It seems content to plod listlessly through the motions.

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

Cheesy.

Spectators will indeed sit open-mouthed before the screen, not screaming but yawning.

Variety
More uselessly redundant and shamelessly money-grubbing than most third-rate horror sequels.

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?
