Six years after Michael Myers last terrorized Haddonfield, he returns there in pursuit of his niece, Jamie Lloyd, who has escaped with her newborn child, for which Michael and a mysterious cult have sinister plans.
Three years after he last terrorized his sister, Michael Myers confronts her again, before traveling to Haddonfield to deal with the cast and crew of a reality show which is being broadcast from his old home.
After being committed for 17 years, Michael Myers, now a grown man and still very dangerous, escapes from the mental institution (where he was committed as a 10 year old) and he immediately returns to Haddonfield, where he wants to find his baby sister, Laurie. Anyone who crosses his path is in mortal danger.
Tommy Jarvis goes to the graveyard to get rid of Jason Voorhees' body once and for all, but inadvertently brings him back to life instead. The newly revived killer once again seeks revenge, and Tommy may be the only one who can defeat him.
It's one year later after the events of Halloween 4. Michael survives the shootings and on October 31st he returns with a vengeance. Lurking and stalking, Jamie, Rachel, and Rachel's friends, Michael forms a plan to lure Jamie out of the children's hospital where events lead up to the confrontation at the Myers house. Halloween 5 is a dark, thrill ride that will scare the heck out of you! Written by
The first Halloween film to go directly to VHS in Australia. It also took almost two years from its initial US release to be released in that country. See more »
At about the half way point of the movie, two police officers watch as Michael drives up rather loudly in a car clearly wearing his signature white mask. By this point in the film, Michael would have likely been known to be at large and dangerous so why wouldn't they have had the brains to investigate his presence when he pulled up to the party?

Take me, but spare my friend... She's a virgin

Got her phone number?
[They all laugh]
Deputy Nick Ross:
You think that's funny?
[taking off mask]
Hey, hey, no man, no hey, just a little Halloween prank, Okay?
Deputy Tom Farrah:
Definitely not funny. Somebody could even be dead right now.
Deputy Nick Ross:
Fortunately we're lousy cops.

The Return of Michael Myers is one of the darker films in the franchise, having a grim somber Midwestern atmosphere. It also shines the spotlight directly on Dr. Loomis and his unforgettable lines about the evil Michael Myers. Its a great direct follow up from the forth film and adds a couple new solid characters namely Tina and of course The Man in Black. In this movie Meeker grows on me and becomes in my opinion a better sheriff than Brackett. One negative is there are some typical cheesy 80s scenes that I thought The Return could have cut out. Also, Harris and Billy were somewhat off-putting in some scenes with over-dramatic screams. When it gets to the last thirty or twenty minutes of the film is when its at its best. Loomis versus Myers, it doesn't get any better than that. The Return (7/10) is a slight drop off but still a solid entry to the Halloween series.
