Consensus: The only thing this tired slasher flick may resurrect is nostalgia for when the genre was still fresh and scary.

Joe Leydon

[Seems] even more uselessly redundant and shamelessly money-grubbing than most third-rate horror sequels.

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

He comes, he kills, he fries, he stirs again. He's about as scary as Perry Como.

While the production values here are more cool than crappy, there's nothing really new about Resurrection.

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.

A cheesy thing that opened Friday without any advance screening.

Generic slasher-movie nonsense, but it's not without style.

It's a ridiculous, absurd slasher film with a concept that is so bad that it's undoubtedly good and makes for some wicked entertainment.

Halloween: Resurrection is the second weakest of the series, and that's only because Busta Rhymes ruins it. It's like he makes a mockery of this film.… More

Well this wasn't very fun at all. It's nowhere near as bad as Halloween 6.....but it sure can compete with Halloween 2. The beginning part with Jamie… More

This ruined the series for me. No wait, let me make that KILLED it for me. I thought 4, 5, and 6 were bad, but this is proof that you can do worse than those… More
