Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A bit more refined in its details than the conventional horror movie."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"This is an uneven Halloween addition, but also more ambitious than the norm."
‑ Dustin Putman, DustinPutman.com
"Poor Dr. Loomis' nerves are pretty much shot at this point, leading to some unintenionally hilarious moments."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, FulvueDrive-in.com
"a step down on the quality ladder"
‑ Douglas Pratt, DVDLaser
"Weak Halloween entry. Maintains the status quo, no new developments."
‑ Fred Topel, About.com
"A prime example of the principle of diminishing reruns."
‑ Richard Harrington, Washington Post
"Completed the transition to full-fledged brainless slasherdom begun in Halloween 4 at at time when the brainless slasher film was at its very worst."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"I can see how the hardcore Halloween-heads can find some small nuggets of fun in this particular sequel, but in my eyes the series ended with the explosion in Halloween 2."
‑ Scott Weinberg, DVDTalk.com
"'Halloween 5: The Failure of Michael Myers' would be more accurate, though admittedly not as appealing in a mass-marketing sense."
‑ Eric D. Snider, EricDSnider.com
"A guilty pleasure...the knife's not blunt yet"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"Sub-par filler for completists of the series only."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Frustrating, confusing, loud, and offensive."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"[The film's been infused] with a run-of-the-mill slasher vibe, complete with oversexed teenagers and moronic authority figures."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"A relatively uninspired entry in the Halloween series."
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
"Filming this sequel, the ultimate revenge!"
‑ Bob Bloom, Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)
