Inside Halloween 5 (2004)

*** (out of 4)

Good 15-minute featurette about the making of HALLOWEEN 5. It starts off with Moustapha Akkad admitting that he was "success drunk" due to the previous film so he quickly went into production on this one. He admits quite a few things throughout the interview and it's clear that he probably wasn't overly thrilled with some of the decisions made on the picture. From here we hear from Danielle Harris, Ellie Cornell, Don Shanks and through promotional materials we hear from director Dominique Othenin-Girard. For the most part this is a pretty good documentary with several nice stories including Harris talking about Donald Pleasance and how he gave her his large trailer once he had finished shooting all of his scenes. There's a lot of talk about what type of film the director wanted but we never get to hear too many details. Many fans of the series, myself included, feel that HALLOWEEN 5 is one of the worst so there are many aspects that aren't mention. It's never really mentioned why they wanted to connect Jamie to Myers and it's also never really mentioned why they went with the Man in Black. The producer and stars all admit they have no idea what it was for, although Shanks shares a story that originally it was going to be Michael's twin brother. In one of the best moments, Cornell talks about how she was unhappy about her character's original death and later even Akkad admits they made a mistake. The film ended up doing poorly at the box office but this too isn't discussed. Overall, a nice little featurette to view after watching the film.
