Trivia

(at around 7 mins) This is the first Halloween film to have Michael Myers with black hair. His original hair color is blonde. You can see Michael in this film without the mask twice, first when he wakes up in the cabin and again in the attic when he's in front of Jamie (at around 1h 27 mins). Tom Morga is one of two actors to have played Myers who had a different hair color. The other is Brad Loree in Halloween: Resurrection (2002). See more »

Goofs

We hear Tina whisper to her boyfriend Mike to pick her up at 8PM, at Rachel's house. A disguised Michael Myers appears at that time instead, but he had no way of knowing when or where to show up. See more »

User Reviews

Apart from Pleasence, everyone in the film is just going through the motions.
23 October 1999 | by See all my reviews

When the original Halloween was made it was scary because of its gritty realism and believable characters. Part 2 was also an edge-of-seater. But by the time you reach this, Part 5, the tension has gone from the series and Michael Myers has descended from a believable shadow-stalking figure into an unkillable Jason 'Friday the 13th' Voorhees clone.

For what its worth, the plot of this film involves Myers coming after Jamie, who is now in a childrens' psychiatric hospital after attacking her stepmother. The concept of Jamie having a psychic bond with her deranged uncle is interesting, but it's all completely ruined by the constant unfunny attempts at humour, the tedious padding and the lack of likeable would-be victims. Instead of genuine characters all we have here are Porky-style sex-mad teenagers with nothing approaching an IQ between them. There's even a scene set in a barn similar to the one in some of the Friday the 13th films. And Rachel from Part 4 seems to have been reduced to a stereotype blonde airhead whose only purpose in the film is to run around half-naked before being slaughtered. And why does Myers' mask look nothing like the one he wore in the previous films?

One good point in this film is Donald Pleasence, who is at his best as an overwhelming Dr Loomis who dominates his every scene and makes the film worth viewing. There is also an enigmatic Man in the Black Fedora-type figure who leads the film into the far superior Part 6.
