Movie Info

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

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.

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.

February 1, 2014 Full Review Source: Georgia Straight

A film bereft or surprises, or even suspense, and seems to get off on creating vicious murders to compensate for lack of genuine terror.

Bogged down by ridiculous plotting involving warlocks, druids and Thorn that have no place in a movie about a villain who is supposed to be 'purely and simply evil.'

The series' nadir...nothing but a delivery system for murder and half-glimpses of naked women.

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.

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.

At least we care about these characters, even if we can't always make heads or tails out of what is happening.

Audience Reviews for Halloween - The Curse of Michael Myers (Halloween 6)

Halloween: The Curse of The Curse of Michael Myers is in my book, the third worst film of the Halloween franchise. At times the film doesn't even make sense, and it's all over the place. The result is a mess. However, for some reason, I did find this one to be decent enough to watch. However, the film does lack the power the power of previous Halloween films. Many Halloween and Horror fans have said that the producer's cut of the film is better because it feature the cut scenes integrated in that cut of the film. I have yet to see that cut of the film, but for this version, it lacked the style and power and minimal suspense. But it is better than the third installment. Some of the performances here are questionable. What's very interesting about this film is the casting of Paul Rudd, who would later go on to star in popular comedy films. The film as a whole has a very dark atmosphere, almost too dark. You can't even see what's going on, on-screen. The kills are obscured, and you're left in trying to figure out what is going on on-screen. But if you can make out what's happening, then you can kind of enjoy this film. I have yet to check out the producers cut of this film, and by what I hear it is the definitive version of this picture. The Curse of Michael Myers is a decent film, but is also a mess of a film. The film has potential, but is never really fulfilled due in part to this films checkered history. Halloween fans know what I'm talking about.

John Strode: Enough of this Michael Myers bullshit!

"Terror Never Rests In Peace."

Well said John Strode, well said. Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers is the first completely unwatchable film in the series. I still dislike number 3 more, but not by a whole lot. It's just a generic slasher that is holding on to the greatness of the first one, while trying to squeeze every dollar possible out of a dead series. I've heard good things about H2O, so it should be interesting watching that one after two really bad Halloween's in a row.

There are a couple points of interest in this one though. One is the Paul Rudd getting his start, as many actors do, in a slasher. He's horrible in this movie, but it was still interesting seeing him get his start. The other point of interest the horribly done father bitch slaps daughter scene. It was so bad that it had me laughing.

There's not much else to say about this. It's bad; it's really bad.

I watched the directors cut but its not on here on RT the 666 producers version...

Crap plot how it started as a slasher movie (first) and than became this... Horrible acting, plot holes.

The gore effects are nice though. Oh right the directors cut was better so i rised it too a 40%
