Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"While Carpenter's film was all about economy and a skilful use of empty space, Miner's busy compositions have a cluttered feel that is echoed by superfluous orchestral music."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"Halloween: H20 is as stylish and scary as it is ultra-violent. It brings back a stunning Jamie Lee Curtis in the role that made her a star and it's a work of superior craftsmanship in all aspects."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"Too bad it's only a smidgen better than the series' first first sequel, 1981's gory Halloween II."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"It's somewhere around minute 58 - that's in a film that runs 80 minutes before credits, folks - before anything particularly interesting happens."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"The horror genre is not my forte in either taste or interest, but I have to admit, I enjoyed sitting through Halloween: H20."
‑ Robin Clifford, Reeling Reviews
"I'm currently stuck watching the revival of a movie form that appalled me the first time around, then disappeared from view after a torrent of thoughtless re-workings that resembled bloody tape loops."
‑ Paul Tatara, CNN.com
"Now that they have produced something vaguely enjoyable, hopefully the film makers will let the series rest in peace."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"[Director] Miner is tasked with getting these characters in one setting, and he accomplishes his duty for the most part."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"H2O successfully captures the foreboding mood of Carpenter's 1978 original before eventually settling for the obvious. And at 86 minutes, it's just too short."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, FulvueDrive-in.com
"The selfish pea brains who brought their bright-eyed infant to...this violent horror movie deserve a private, late-night visit from the uncompromising Michael Myers."
‑ Judith Egerton, Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)
"...Steve Miner is no Carpenter."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"The scary slasher-movie genre has been ratcheted up several notches with the release today of Halloween: H20."
‑ Bob Graham, San Francisco Chronicle
"Unquestionably the best of the Halloween followups..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Brilliant and witty. Those are two words that will not be used to described this film, nor, I suspect, its target audience."
‑ Ron Wells, Film Threat
"Then Michael shows up and blah blah blah."
‑ Eric D. Snider, EricDSnider.com
