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.
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

So how many cases can we get?
Three cases. Any more and I think old Mr. Casy would-ah-know something's up, but we gotta get going, shift changes pretty soon. You gonna pull around back or should we both get busted out front?

The German theatrical version was cut to get a "16" rating. On video, two versions were released, the "16"-one for sell-thru and an uncut "18"-rated version for the rental release. See more »
Halloween 5 was one of those films that left one feeling unfulfilled after watching it despite being a fan of the series.
Halloween 5 seemed to be trying to emulate the original which just cannot be done. It seemed to succeed in being fairly atmospheric but there wasn't much gore in the film. The late Donald Pleasance was back but he didn't seem to have the impact he had in the original and parts 2 and 3. Loomis was still a great character.
There are two areas which can be commended. Danielle Harris once again did a great job as the niece of Michael Myers and Michael Myers himself was becoming a bit more human which I don't think is a bad thing. Villains can only be inhuman for so long. Also, if you watch the ending you'll get a bit of history on Michael Myers but unfortunately later films did not capitalise on it. That was a shame.
All in all, Halloween 5 was decent enough and I shall probably rent the DVD.
