Quotes

[about Grimbridge's attacker]
Daniel Challis: I've seen lots of people on drugs. The man was in complete control. He looked like a businessman!
Teddy: Well, he had to be one strong businessman, I can tell you that. You don't just pull someone's skull apart without a little lower-arm strength, know what I mean?

What the hell is this?
24 September 2007 | by vince200002000See all my reviews

I always question the fact of why this film was even made. It had nothing to do with it's predecessors and doesn't at all contribute to the series. Michael Myers is absent in this instalment. Instead the makers got this bright idea to come up with a completely different movie with a stupid, uninteresting plot about masks. The characters are all different and unlikable. The acting was horrible and was almost laughable. (That is if your eyes didn't burn from watching it) This movie shouldn't even be considered part of the Halloween series we've come to know and love. It throws everything that was great about it's predecessors right out the window and into the garbage. Avoid this terrible movie It is not worth yours or anyone else's time.
