Do we have to go to the family reunion? Uncle Michael is so creepy
After surviving the end of the previous entry in the series(I know; who could have seen that coming?), Myers stumbles away, coming upon a old dude. Electing to leave him alone for the time being, he instead collapses and then proceeds to nap for about 364 days. Yeah. I guess those night-long killing sprees really take it out of you. I mean, sure, he only does this once a decade or so, but he's not exactly the sporty type. Anyway, he wakes back up(internal timers are extremely handy for those apparently somehow unable to take a life any other day of the year than either the 30th or 31st of October; I wonder how well it handles leap-years, though?), and so proceeds this poorly plotted mess. So, this largely abandons the very ending of the one immediately before it, in spite of it being a decent idea. Oh, don't worry, they do add a "twist" to it; Jamie's got a psychic connection(one that kicks in when the story demands it to, to boot) with him now. As this is causing me physical pain and probably quite a bit of internal bleeding simply to actually write this out, I will move on to another aspect of it. Harris also has to play a mute, and she's joined by a boy who appears to have a speech impediment or similar, and they are both very impressive, and handle that strain on their talent rather well. Heck, her and Rachel now manage to not be irritating. Unfortunately, others pick up that slack(and the aforementioned three are about the only people in this who can act, or do in this, at least), and frankly, the sheer thought of the volume of obnoxious characters in this brings that stabbing sensation back... oh, Pleasance dials down the yelling of his lines, if his speeches continue to reiterate what he said once or twice(perfectly, at that) in the original one. What happened to the house? That is clearly not the same as in the first. The effects are nicely done. This hides MM better than the last two sequels that had him. The editing and cinematography are reasonable. Huh. This... I mean, it doesn't sound as bad as I remembered it, from just having watched it. Oh wait... those hideous, face-palm-inducing damn *cartoon SFX* for the cops to "lighten it", the noticeably awful dubbing at several points, the numerous cheap scares that don't pay off... oh, crap, I lost all feeling in the left side of my body. I'm gonna have to finish this fast. There is plenty of brutal, bloody, gory violence, relatively frequent moderate to strong language, a little graphic sexuality and brief gratuitous nudity. The DVD contains trailers for this and 4. I recommend this solely to those who want 90 minutes of a slasher, and they'd prefer it to be this particular franchise. 5/10
