Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers Reviews
November 2, 2020
This was the beginning of the end for the Halloween franchise.

It's clear that the filmmakers didn't know where this was headed, and the result is an aimless, muddled mess.

It's peak absurdity for the franchise, but Halloween 5 commits the far more egregious sin of also being rather dull.

This is an uneven Halloween addition, but also more ambitious than the norm.

Completed the transition to full-fledged brainless slasherdom begun in Halloween 4 at at time when the brainless slasher film was at its very worst.

Frustrating, confusing, loud, and offensive.

Poor Dr. Loomis' nerves are pretty much shot at this point, leading to some unintenionally hilarious moments.

I can see how the hardcore Halloween-heads can find some small nuggets of fun in this particular sequel, but in my eyes the series ended with the explosion in Halloween 2.

[The film's been infused] with a run-of-the-mill slasher vibe, complete with oversexed teenagers and moronic authority figures.

'Halloween 5: The Failure of Michael Myers' would be more accurate, though admittedly not as appealing in a mass-marketing sense.
November 4, 2003
A relatively uninspired entry in the Halloween series.
August 13, 2003
Weak Halloween entry. Maintains the status quo, no new developments.

A bit more refined in its details than the conventional horror movie.
