Picking up six years after the events of Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers, this competently produced but ultimately disappointing sequel attempts to tie up the uneven horror series' loose ends with a less-than-convincing resolution. This installment opens with Jamie Lloyd (J.C. Brandy), young niece of supernatural psycho-killer Michael Myers, giving birth on an altar amid a mysterious Druid ceremony. Before she is killed by her monstrous uncle, Jamie manages to leave her baby in the

Run-of-the-mill horror item is notable only for final appearance of the late Donald Pleasance
Although the series has obviously run out of steam, the ending leaves the door open for Michael's return. Really, it's about time the masks were removed once and for and all.
'Enough of this Michael Meyers B.S.!,' says a disgruntled Haddonfielder, as news spreads of the returning native son. Dream on.
Needless to say, the gore level is high and the scare level low -- although not as low as the intelligence level.
This sixth installment, by far the worst in the series, is bland and deadening.
I'd say everybody associated with this film-from unrelenting series producer Moustapha Akkad on down-could do with a good checkup.
A film bereft or surprises, or even suspense, and seems to get off on creating vicious murders to compensate for lack of genuine terror.

The film is so dark -- literally -- it's often hard to see what's going on.
The revelation of the Man in Black and the film's attempt to explain the origin of Michael Myers were the only points of interest here.
It is still not a 'good' film. But it is generally competent -- that is, it appears to have been made by grown-ups, not by retarded preschoolers.
Muddled sequel redeemed in part by Pleasence.
Yet another sequel no-one needed; too bad Donald Pleasance didn't stick around long enough to live it down.
Thus proving, yet again, what an amazing job Carpenter did on the original.
As with most horror sequels, plot and narrative development are predictable.
