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

Critic Reviews for Halloween - The Curse of Michael Myers (Halloween 6)
Instead of sending up the current glut of serial-killer movies, the filmmakers trot out the old slasher tactics.
Run-of-the-mill horror item is notable only for final appearance of the late Donald Pleasance
Although the series has obviously run out of steam, the ending leaves the door open for Michael's return. Really, it's about time the masks were removed once and for and all.
'Enough of this Michael Myers B.S.!,' says a disgruntled Haddonfielder, as news spreads of the returning native son. Dream on.
Audience Reviews for Halloween - The Curse of Michael Myers (Halloween 6)
While not as completely abysmal as Halloween 5, the plot is nonsensical and the movie basically relies on cheap bumps and deafening chords to let us know when to jump. Besides, what can be cheesier than lightnings and thunder used just for effect when there is never even rain?
The problem with the Halloween series that I have is that they tried to make things more important than they really were. When they started trying to come up with an explanation of what Michael Myers is it fails on all levels and makes things less intriguing. What makes the character interesting is its simplicity and not the complexity, and that's ultimately what happened with the series in general. Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers continues on with the "Curse of Thorn" backstory mechanic that's just as ineffective as making Jamie Lee Curtis Michael Myers' sister in Halloween II. The film does have a little bit to it as a horror film I guess, but overall it's just a tired entry in a series that has long overstayed its welcome.
Halloween: The Curse of The Curse of Michael Myers is in my book, the third worst film of the Halloween franchise. At times the film doesn't even make sense, and it's all over the place. The result is a mess. However, for some reason, I did find this one to be decent enough to watch. However, the film does lack the power the power of previous Halloween films. Many Halloween and Horror fans have said that the producer's cut of the film is better because it feature the cut scenes integrated in that cut of the film. I have yet to see that cut of the film, but for this version, it lacked the style and power and minimal suspense. But it is better than the third installment. Some of the performances here are questionable. What's very interesting about this film is the casting of Paul Rudd, who would later go on to star in popular comedy films. The film as a whole has a very dark atmosphere, almost too dark. You can't even see what's going on, on-screen. The kills are obscured, and you're left in trying to figure out what is going on on-screen. But if you can make out what's happening, then you can kind of enjoy this film. I have yet to check out the producers cut of this film, and by what I hear it is the definitive version of this picture. The Curse of Michael Myers is a decent film, but is also a mess of a film. The film has potential, but is never really fulfilled due in part to this films checkered history. Halloween fans know what I'm talking about.
