Critic Reviews

The final minute of Halloween 4 remains as unsettling today as it was during its 1988 theatrical run. The real reason to see this movie is not for the predictable build-up, but for the cliffhanger provided by director Dwight H. Little and screenwriter Alan B. McElroy.

Didn't Like
Very much the cheap knockoff of its prototype, but not half as visceral.
