Trivia

On the DVD audio commentary, director Dominique Othenin-Girard stated actress Tamara Glynn (Sammie) became increasingly tense and 'unfeminine' as they got closer to filming the love scene between her and Matthew Walker (Spitz) in the barn. Glynn even asked co-star Danielle Harris to be on set during the filming of that scene to help ease her tension. See more »

Goofs

(at around 1h 3 mins) When chasing Jamie and Billy in the car, Michael's position while driving the changes between the driver's seat and the passenger seat. (The DVD commentary revealed this is because the shot was filmed with the car being driven towards a mirror) See more »

Quotes

Jamie: Don't go.
Tina: I have to.
Jamie: Why?
Tina: Because... You might not understand but when you're older there are people you're gonna meet who make you feel like connected. Like your heart is made of neon and when you find them you have to be with them.
Jamie: But he was with you.
Tina: Who?
Jamie: The boogeyman.
Tina: Oh yeah, that's one way of describing him.
[kisses her, and gets up]
Jamie: Tina, no!

What were they thinking???
27 September 2000 | by LV426See all my reviews

I have no idea what the film makers were thinking when they came up with this movie. I'm an AVID Halloween fan and am ashamed to admit it after this. First of all Micheal's mask has got to go. It looks nothing like the original except for the color. Another huge blunder was that of Micheals house. Since when did the Meyers live in a mansion? They didn't. The original house (Halloween I and II) was a lot different. I don't even think the director watched any of the other movies. Loomis has turned into a deranged dirty old man (i.e. when he's grabbing Jamie in her hospital bed). And what is up with the comic cops? Everytime I hear that music when they come on screen I just want to puke. Now, with that all said Halloween 5 does have some cool scenes: in the beginning when Micheal puts on his mask and Jamie copies it, when Micheal scratches that guys hotrod, when Micheal uses a pitchfork and sickle, and finally the laundry chute scene. I love all the Halloween movies but wish they put the same amount of effort into this one. Part 4 was good but 5 could've been better.
