Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers
Directed by Dominique Othenin-Girard
Following her mysterious behavior at the conclusion of HALLOWEEN 4: THE RETURN OF MICHAEL MYERS, young Jamie (Danielle Harris) is committed to the psychiatric care of Dr. Loomis (Donald Pleasence). Meanwhile, Michael Myers is presumed dead following a shoot-out with the Haddonfield Police and a fatal fall down a mineshaft entrance. But all is not as it seems. A well-meaning derelict nurses Michael back to health, and one year later he is back to kill again! Jamie finds herself the object of Michael’s murderous rage, and along with her new friends and Dr. Loomis, she tries to prevent Michael from continuing his bloody rampage.
One year following the events of HALLOWEEN 4, Michael Myers returns to Haddonfield with a vengeance.
Cast: Donald Pleasence, Don Shanks, Danielle Harris
I thought this was going to be an interminable slog after my experience with Halloween 4, but this one at least embraces the stupidity of slasher sequel tropes. Dumb fun.
It's so unfortunate that this movie lost the momentum from part 4. everything about this one just doesn't work....
For a 97 minute movie, this felt too long.
This movie sucks.
