      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers trades the simple, brutal effectiveness of the original for convoluted mysticism, with disastrously dull results.

      John Hartl Seattle Times Instead of sending up the current glut of serial-killer movies, the filmmakers trot out the old slasher tactics. Rated: 1.5/4 Sep 29, 2014 Full Review Derek Adams Time Out Slicker than crude oil and just as unattractive. Jun 24, 2006 Full Review Daniel M. Kimmel Variety Run-of-the-mill horror item is notable only for final appearance of the late Donald Pleasance Apr 29, 2005 Full Review Kat Halstead Common Sense Media While not the worst of the series, it's unsurprising that the installment that followed three years later brought back Curtis to take a much stronger stab at getting the series back on track. Feb 22, 2024 Full Review Brian Rowe InSession Film Here’s an installment in the Halloween franchise with two vastly different versions—and they’re both bad. May 3, 2023 Full Review Cody Leach Cody Leach (YouTube) The commendable atmosphere is tainted by a ridiculous story and incoherent editing. This sequel is notorious for it's production issues and multiple cuts. It's unfortunate that neither officially-released cut is a good version of this movie.

      Boc T The Paul Rudd Halloween. New Jamie (not for long) and a ton of twists and turns that make this so different from the others in the franchise. Levels of gore were definitely turned up, but both endings are meh. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/15/24 Full Review Charles C Very much a guilty pleasure halloween movie Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 05/30/24 Full Review James B Better than the previous films but it is so similar to the first but it's actually not that bad. It's more mysterious than it's predecessors yet some amazing kills and George p Wilbur's Michael Myers is the best. Paul rudd is also a nice face to the movie. A truly underrated Halloween. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/03/24 Full Review Emilliano Jr S Bad ending for a once successful franchise. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/24/24 Full Review Ben T The sixth instalment in the Halloween franchise. By now it's a pale shadow of the original and the most bizarre. There's little to enjoy and there's a strange cult involved which really adds nothing to the story. Donald Pleasence returns for the last time. Sadly, this was also his last ever film. He died 8 months before the film was released. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/11/24 Full Review Jeff M I wasn't doing cartwheels over the recent HALLOWEEN KILLS, but it's a masterpiece on par with the original compared to this utterly worthless installment - number six, I believe. There are only two things of note in this movie: it's the film debut of Paul Stephen Rudd, who would obviously drop the middle name and enjoy great future success; and it's the final appearance of Donald Pleasance as Dr. Loomis, who passed away before the film's release. It's rather sad watching him here as he is obviously frail and appears to have trouble getting out sentences. As for the film itself, it's practically worthless. It's as far away from the original horror masterpiece as day is from night. I sat stonefaced throughout. Usually even in the worst films of this genre there are at least one or two truly supenseful or inspired moments. Nothing here. And by the time we end up in a mental institution apparently run by an evil doctor wanting a baby from Michael's bloodline (I think), I had given up hope and was counting the moments till this blessedly short 88 minute movie came to an end. I have decided to watch all of the HALLOWEEN movies and their incarnations before the release of the (hopefully) final installment next year. I'm praying to the movie gods I don't have to sit through anything worse than this one. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/10/24 Full Review Read all reviews
