Product Description

Amazon.ca

"You can't kill the bogeyman," the children insist to a terrorized Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) in the original Halloween. How right they are. Laurie is gone, but guess who's back in Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers? Acting as if the third entry never existed, this installment picks up 10 years after the original, with mad maniac Myers in a coma and moved to a new facility. But wouldn't you know it that as soon as a loose-lipped orderly lets slip that Myers has a surviving niece he springs back into action, leaving a bloody trail of corpses on the road to Haddonfield. Donald Pleasance returns as Dr. Loomis, scarred and crippled from his last encounter with Myers and seething with a fanatical zeal to stop the freak from repeating his previous rampage. Pleasance is the best thing about the film as an aging hero seemingly on the verge of madness who drags a bum leg in his manic rush to save little orphan Jamie (Danielle Harris), the 10-year-old waif terrorized by her homicidal uncle. Director Dwight Little has managed a generic if professional slasher picture, rife with improbabilities and dominated by a killer whose superhuman powers reach near-mystical dimensions, but he delivers the goods: shocks, stabs, and cold, cruel killings. --Sean Axmaker

3.0 out of 5 stars Mr. Myers is back and well rested Dec 15 2000
By Mark
Format:VHS Tape
The sequals continue in this slasher. I must say it was exilerating for me to watch due to the fact that I'm a huge fan of the series. The plot revolves around the fact that Michaels niece, Jamie, is being stalked by wicked psychopath Michael Myers. Stemming from the 1978 hit, Halloween 4 in my opinion is an good sequale which I promise will scare you stiff. Danielle Harris (Jamie) lights up the screen with her excellent acting along with Donald Pleasence (Sam Loomis) The reason this didn't earn a 4 is because of the some what thin plot and mediocre acting by the supporting cast members. Mostly hormone driven teens which you want to see die anyway. The movie can be a bit slow at times also. But that's kind of a contridiction due to the fact the original Halloween was slow and still was a great movie. In conclusion, I recommend this to any hard core horror flick fans. For others I think it will seem like any other "average" movie out there. Got to say something about what I said? E-mail me at: omicron_30@yahoo.com.

5.0 out of 5 stars FINALLY! A sequel that lives up to the original! Aug. 7 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Dwight Little has done the impossible. John Carpenter's Halloween was the best example of horror filmmaking to come our way in a long time. It relied on atmosphere and tension to attack it's audience. It wasn't an excuse for nudity and mindless bloodletting. It was a serious film that didn't downplay itself. It also didn't treat it's audience as if they had the IQs of dogs. Director Dwight Little and writer Alan McElroy have taken that exact same approach with the fourth installment in the classic horror franchise, creating a film so intense you may just have to change underwear during the third reel. Danielle Harris gives an amazing performance as Michael Myers' young niece Jamie Lloyd who, along with her adopted sister Rachel (also very well acted by Ellie Cornell) find themselves stalked by the unstoppable killer during a power outage. Sharp dialogue and a side of realism not often seen in horror films does not take backseat to the scares and helps create a firm, believable story. It all builds towards the most shocking, nightmare inducing final shot in years. A classic of the genre.

4.0 out of 5 stars Meggido Champion's Review April 30 2000
Format:VHS Tape
I personally love thriller movies and have always been a great fan of Halloween, but this one takes the cake. Or should we say slices it. The movie begins with several shots of Haddonfield, extremely beautiful and they get you in the mood for what's coming with the Halloween theme. Michael Myers, after having burned in the ending of Halloween 2, is now in a coma and being moved to another facility. On the way, some people on the ambulance start talking about Michael Myers' niece, Jamie (figures that she is named after Jamie Lee Curtis) and the dormant assasin once again revives. As a little thank-you-for-you-assistance, he kills everyone in the ambulance and dumps it in a murky lake.
Then, we see Jamie, who is living in a foster home. After a short brawl with her sister, she goes to her bedroom, where she encounters Michael Myers in a nightmare (that really freaked me out).
Dr. Loomis, heavily burned and injured after his last encounter with Michael, shows himself as an obsessed hero, he still pursues his idea that Michael is alive and that he must kill him, although everyone thinks that Michael is dead. But then again, when you think about it, if Loomis isn't dead, who wouldn't guess that maybe Michael was still alive.
The most frighting images of the movie come in the central point. Michael is wearing several bandages on his face which give him a mysterious appearance as a looks down on his next victim,a car repair man, and murders him. Then, when Loomis comes to the deserted repair shop and starts looking around, you feel as if Michael is lurking by, ready to pounce, but that isn't what happens.
Well, I've given you a little of the movie, if you want to experience horror at it's maximum, try this one. Not Friday the 13th, Scream, or Nightmare on Elm Street can compare to this one!

Format:DVD
GREAT!
After the horrible Halloween III - Season of the Witch (1983), this series needed a jump-start. This is what it got. Carpenter is gone from the series but Moustapha Akkad (master of the Halloween franchise) manages to put forth a solid film. Picking up ten years after the Haddonfield incident, Halloween 4 follows "the shape", masked-maniacle killer Michael Myers, as he terrorizes his young niece, Jamie Lloyd (Danielle Harris). Jamie is the daugher of the now-deceased Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis). Also in the movie is Dr. Sam Loomis, again played by the wonderful Donald Pleasance. Pleasance gives his usual top-notch performance as the doctor who forsaw the horror. If you're looking for something good to watch, give Halloween 4: The Revenge of Michael Myers a chance. It is definitely one of the better sequels.

3.0 out of 5 stars Return to the formula... Jan. 14 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I had only recently watched Halloween III: Season of the Witch... and it made me look at the Halloween series from an entirely different sight. A more disappointed one.

Going back to the Michael Myers character is a financial decision, of course, because Halloween 3 didn't perform very well in theaters. So they go back to the story of babysitter stalked by Michael Myers... only this time, Jamie Lloyd (Harris) is the target... some of the characters are fun, others are one-dimensional at best, and Myers now kills with the strength of three men, capable of invincible feats. Not the worse of the series, by any stretch, but not the best (that honor still goes to Carpenter's original). It features a weird mask, one that looks so bland and uninteresting it takes most of the edge and suspense off.

Special features are fewer than the DVD, so it's quite strange... commentary track, trailer, and a featurette... that's it... Anchor Bay, who once were the champions of special editions, are now some of the biggest letdowns on the market.
