i liked it
9 July 2002 | by (new york) – See all my reviews

a lot of people tend to dislike Halloween 5 the revenge of Michael Myers. but to be honest of all the sequels i like this one best. there is just something about it i like. i like the darkness of the movie. anyway Michael Myers is presumed dead following a shoot out with the Haddonfield police and a fall down a mine shaft, in which explosives were dropped down to finish the job. when we last left Jamie(Danielle Harris) she stabbed her step-mother, she is now in a children's hospital and has become a mute. Jamie knows Michael is still alive as well does Dr. Loomis. so once again Halloween comes and Myers is back doing what he does best.

Rachel(Ellie Cornell) is totally wasted in this film, she should have been kept around longer. Tina(Wendy Kaplan) Rachel's friend looks after Jamie since she thinks that Rachel went away with her parents when she doesn't here from her. Loomis warns everyone of coming danger and this time everybody believes him Sheriff Meeker(Beau Starr) rounds up the troops to be ready for Michael. Jamie has some kind of psychic link to her uncle.

the scene in which Tina thinks she is with her boyfriend but is really with Myers i thought was funny, and Loomis this time around seems a bit on edge i guess all the years of chasing Michael finally got to him

towards the middle Jamie finally talks, and she agrees to help Dr. Loomis try to stop Michael once and for all. the setting is the Myers house which is now a huge gothic like mansion not the normal size house it was in pt 1 and 2. but oh well. i thought that the showdown in the house between Michael and Jamie was very well done. and Michael takes his mask off in a touching scene between him and his niece Jamie. but of course that don't last too long.

and the subplot is around i the middle a stranger shows up wearing all black he quietly walks the streets with an unknown but sinister purpose. what is his connection to Michael?

director Dominique Othenin- Girard i think did a fine job, the car chase scene involving Michael in the car chasing after Tina, Jamie and Jamie's friend Billy was very suspenseful.

if you're a die hard fan of the series like me, you should like Halloween 5. of all the sequels Halloween 5 may not be the best one, but for me it is, like i said something about this one i just love.

i give Halloween 5 the revenge of Michael Myers 8/10
