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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.
