Disappointing.
20 December 2004 | by (Stockport, England) – See all my reviews

Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers was alike Halloween II a great sequel and thoroughly justified the questionable decision to bring Myers back.

The shock ending to Part 4 also left fans demanding another sequel ASAP. I bet they wished they hadn't bothered.

Halloween 5 is so obviously rushed and is littered with plot holes and events that make no sense whatsoever.

Jamie's madness is almost discarded as a plot line, the man in black subplot makes little sense and makes even less in Part 6. Also Ellie Cornell's likable Rachel Carruthers character is killed off almost instantly, and instead the film is carried by a bunch of colourless, obnoxious and unbelievably formulaic characters.

The result of this is that the viewer begins to root for Myers, willing him to slice and dice these dull protagonists.

The two cops amused me, but the circus SFX did not. The only thing that lifts this picture barely above standard horror, is the performance of Donald Pleasence, his Loomis character really begins to lose the plot in this one.

Unquestionably the weakest Michael Myers flick, although Part 6, and Resurrection are only mildly better. This is where the wheels began to fall away in the Halloween saga, even H20 is frustrating, as it discards parts 4-6 as ever happening. Let's hope Part 9 is an improvement and a return to form for the franchise although I wouldn't hold my breath.
