Audience Reviews for Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers

    Halloween 5 picks up where the last film leaves off. Oh, but it doesn't make much sense at all. Let me count the ways. Michael Myers falls into a river and winds up in the care of an old man who lives in the cabin out in the middle of nowhere. Think he might be blind. In any case, the film is clearly channeling one part of the story of Frankenstein. Frankenstein's monster was raised by a blind man in the woods at one point who took care of him. But what happens between Michael Myers and this man in the woods is inexplicable. The man apparently raises him for one year, and we just know that because of a title card. Then Myers just up and kills him after the year is up, for no reason. Oh, and at the end of the film, Myers gets a rescue--from You Know Who. You know who? I don't. Even with the sequel it doesn't make much sense.

    It's always neat when a slasher movie keeps a protagonist from its previous entry in the franchise for more than just an opening sequence. Maybe because it doesn't happen very often. Halloween 5 does have that going for it, as well as the standard "Invincible dude stabs some folk for your enjoyment" to a certain degree, and that's great, but beyond this there's not a whole lot good about The Revenge of Michael Myers. It did teach me some very incorrect things about the letter þ though, so I mean... There's that...

    Hell might not have taken Michael Myers, but Halloween 5 did. In this installment Dr. Loomis realizes that Jamie has a psychic connection with Michael Myers, and uses it to hunt him down when Myers returns for another Halloween night massacre. The plot is extremely contrived, and the acting is exceptionally poor. However, the fast pacing keeps the film moving and gives it some energy. Additionally, the action sequences are intense and exciting. In all the craziness that is Halloween 5, there's an entertaining horror thriller that's a bit of fun.

    So-so fourth sequel. Jamie is unable to speak after her last encounter with Michael Myers and is in hospital. Obviously it isnt long before Myers is back and is after her, who is Myers niece, and everyone around her. A decent performance from future horror favourite Danielle Harris, this is probably for fans of the series only as its kinda predictable but fans of the Halloween franchise and old school horror will find plenty to enjoy here.
