Anyone who crosses his path is in mortal danger.

Even Michael Myers was rolling his eyes at this one
By the fifth installment, new ideas were in short supply for this once towering franchise. Michael comes back (again). OK, this guy has been stabbed a lot, shot numerous times, french fried in fires, crushed by boulders, blown up, run over by cars and trucks, fallen from heights, flushed down toilets, been forced to watch Tom Cruise marathons, and so on. And he's always back for more. Yet dopey cops and vigilantes try to fight him; hello there; he's kind of indestructible you guys. Like a bogey man creature. That makes money for movie producers every time he shows up. You might have trouble killing him, you know? I know, I'm wasting my breath. Horror movie extras are dumb. And suicidal.
So he still wants to croak his sister. And anybody that's anywhere near her. Or if they're cops. Or if they're teens who forever laugh about him. Or a couple on a date that say stupid stuff. Any of that sound familiar? He robotically saunters around a town that everybody probably would have moved out of by now if they had any brain power. But nobody does, especially whoever concocted this mess. Mikey still has his trusty knife, and doesn't say much. Sometimes he likes to stand there a while before killing somebody. Sometimes he does a jump scare murder to wake you up. If you just want to see blood spraying around, there's plenty of that. At all times, the acting makes the kills almost seem merciful to the audience. There's a pitiful attempt to showcase Michael's world, and that goes predictably nowhere. Nothing new, just endless horror movie clichés.
Michael is currently hunting down the people responsible for this movie.
