Product Description

Amazon.ca

Starting around Halloween 4, that masked nut Michael Myers stopped chasing his sister (played by Jamie Lee Curtis in the first and second films, as well as Halloween H20) and went after his niece. Now he's chasing her around again in part 5, but it's a lot of other people who die in the process. Donald Pleasence continues his mad-doctor bit from the earlier movies, Danielle Harris is the unfortunate relation, and Donald L. Shanks plays the monster. The film is an improvement on parts 2 and 4 (part 3 having nothing to do with Michael Myers), but it still amounts to routine slaughter with none of John Carpenter's stylistic brilliance from the original movie. --Tom Keogh

call me crazy,but i liked this fourth Michael Myers movie.i liked the
way they went with the storyline.the storyline may be predictable,but i
still liked it.plus,there are a few tiny little clues suggesting a
possible reason why Michael came to be the way he is.found this part
intriguing.the movie has an air of mystery about it,as these hints are
dropped.it's all very vague and nothing big is revealed here,just some
clues as to what may come next.enough to keep you hooked.just like the
first movie,i thought the acting was pretty good here,though it does
get a bit silly at times.there is some suspense and tension here
again,maybe not quite as much as number 4,but it's there
nonetheless.i'm not sure if this measure up to number 4 or not,but i
still liked it quite a bit.for me,Halloween 5:The Revenge of Michael
Myers is still an 4/5.

Format: Blu-ray
After the modest success of "Halloween 4". They quickly came up with the fifth movie. Which it is sadly, a truly bad movie at times. There is no real story here. But what makes it watchable is the roles of the ever-loyal Donald Pleasence and Danielle Harris are always good in their roles. The movie beings well at first, but when Michael Myers has this mysterious tattoo on his wrist! and also a much weirder subplot about an mysterious man in black arriving in Haddonfield doesn't help. Much of the new characters are sadly unlikeable. This new teenage characters, especially these two dumb police officers (It is supposed to be a tribute to "Wes Craven's The Last House on the Left") are truly disposable. The "Tina" character, played by Wendy Kaplan is supposed to be a likeable character. She is pretty but she comes off being too wild and sadly annoying. Which it is a waste. Ellie Cornell's likeable character from "Halloween 4" as Rachel is sadly killed off, too quickly at the end of the first act. Another waste from the movie.

But it is not a complete waste, because the director:Dominique Othenin-Girard does have some style. I love the stylish opening credit sequence. I love the scene, when Jamie has an nightmare thinking that Michael is chasing her. The third act, the chase around the house with Jamie and Michael is also good but the old Myers' house looks completely different from "Halloween 1 and 2". There is a few unintentional funny moments, especially towards the end. Seeing Michael Myers in a jail cell with his mask on! It just looks so strange and stupid in the same time. Originally, when "Halloween 5" was shot. There was an different character from the original shooting script, when an strange young man... Who kept Michael Myers for a year and giving him a "thorn" tattoo.

Halloween 5 is, in my opinion, the most underrated of all the Halloween sequels. People immediately bash it becuase of the Meyers house turning into a big, gothic mansion, the bad mask, the silly music that plays when the "comic relief" cops are shown, the annoying charectors, and the overrall cheesiness of it. So, the problems are pletntiful...and I agree that those are all defintely bad things, but it still managaes to entertain and scare (me, atleast)...Daniel Harris, tho she doesn't have much to say in this installment, does what she can good. Donald Pleasence again plays his role as Dr. Loomis very well. Really, the only things that irratate me (besides those listed before) include the murder of Rachael; this would have been alot better if she had stayed alive for the whole film and fought beside Jaime., and the way that Michael stalks Tina and Sammy for no reason. Then again, why did he stalk Jaime, Lynda, and Annie in the first? The box for Halloween also lies. It says something like "He's back, and this time they're ready"; well, no, they're not. And it also boast that Michael will be unmasked; we barely get a glimpse of his face in poor light. And besides, we saw his face in the first one almost perfectly already! Overall, I DO reccomend the fifth installment despite its many problems.

I have noticed that Halloween 5 tends to absorb a lot of abuse. I believe that happens because people judge it by inappropriate standards. After all, this is a story about the Bogeyman. This is horror fantasy. Halloween 5 makes no pretense of being a realistic crime drama. I judge films of this sort by atmosphere and suspense. Halloween 5 is very strong by the first standard and pretty good by the second. The film is shot in such a way that it actually feels like Halloween. The lighting and coloration are beautifully done. As regards suspense, no slasher film can match the original Halloween, but this one does have a couple of exceptional moments. The part where Michael Myers pursues the little girl, and also where he kills Tina, are presented in such a way that it feels like people are actually dying.Contrast that with the by-the-numbers feel of most slasher films, where you see so many killings that they kind of become a blur. And Donald Pleasence is brilliant as Dr. Loomis. He is yet another factor that separates Halloween from other slasher movies.
I certainly agree that this film could have done without the two dumb cops. And the telepathy. And the mysterious man in black. But the Halloween movies, when they are at their best, revolve around building a spooky atmosphere, effective stalking scenes, and big finales in which Dr. Loomis manages to salvage at least one person's life. Halloween 5 scores well in each of those areas. If you want real-life crime drama, tv is pretty well-stocked with shows that depict that.You won't find that in a Halloween movie. There are so many other places where you can find that, there's no point in looking for it in a slasher film.
