Critic Reviews:

Although not as tense as its predecessors, Halloween 4 is nonetheless a grown up film, eschewing many of the cheesy traits of its genre stablemates and almost maintaining a standard that had been set some ten years earlier.

Despite the tone of the preceding 1,500 words, I’m not saying that “Halloween 4” is a bad “Halloween” sequel, or even a bad movie. A fair portion of its odd nature can be attributed to the time it was made, and trends that were popular then.

Halloween 4 didn’t get my enthusiasm years ago, but my recent viewing turned me around. The escalation into action territory in the third act proves Dwight H. Little’s mettle for later endeavors like Marked for Death and Rapid Fire.
