Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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?

Quotes

[They all laugh]
Deputy Nick Ross: You think that's funny?
Spitz: [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.

Halloween V: The Return
15 January 2015 | by (Waconia, Minnesota) – See all my reviews

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.
