Product Description


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.

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.

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.

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.

This movie is a great movie in the Halloween series. We see the introduction of the Man in Black (more on him in Halloween), we see cast members return from Halloween 4. You'll have to watch the movie to see what happens. Sam Loomis played by Donald Pleasance returns to have another showdown with the maniacal and deranged Michael Myers and again, like previous Halloween films, there is little to no gore in th is movie. Most movies today have graphic horror violence but not the Halloween movies. My introduction to the Halloween franchise came with Halloween 4 and Halloween 5 because I was able to see them in theaters in 1988 and 1989. I am 40 years old now and I prefer to watch the movies that I grew up watching. Halloween 5 is one of my favorite films. Halloween could not have been made without the success of Psycho and Halloween inspired a series of slasher films like Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Child's Play and the ultimate innovative horror series, Scream. The slasher series went up a notch with Saw and Hatchet. Sleepaway camp was probably inspired by Friday the 13th. Halloween 1,2 4,5,6,7 and 8 are often imitated but never duplicated. I miss Rick Rosenthal who directed Halloween II, I wish he had continued with the series. Dick Warlock was amazing as the Shape and Donald Pleasance's presence on the screen is the main reason why I love this series. Amazing film.
