Default Halloween 4: The Return Of Michael Myers (1988)

It's been a decade since Michael Myers had his last killing spree in Haddonfield. But tonight, October 31st, 1988, that's going to change - it's Halloween again!

While being transferred from the Ridgemont Maximum Security Hospital, Michael Myers, who's been sleeping dormant in a coma for the last ten years, awakens when he hears that he has a neice. Meanwhile, back in Haddonfield, Myers' niece Jamie Lloyd (daughter of [supposedly] deceased Laurie Strode) is having nightmares about her evil uncle. Her step-sister, Rachel Corruthers, takes her out trick-or-treating, but instead of finding a night of fun, they find Michael Myers!

But Dr. Loomis also survived the explosion of the second film. He tracks Michael back home, enlisting the help of Sheriff Ben Meeker. Together, they shelter Jamie in Meeker's not-too-safe house. Myers makes his way in, taking his revenge on victims Kelly, Deputy Logan, and Brady. Jamie escapes to the local schoolhouse, but her fiendish uncle is hot on her track. A high-paced finale leaves Myers buried in hell. As everyone begins to calm down from the night, a scream is heard from the upstairs of the Corruthers' house - the evil has only started!


This is one of the few Halloween sequels that in my opinion, I enjoy and is one of the best of the series. I'd say after 4, H2O is my second favorite Halloween sequel that is worthy of the series.

Thoughts?....

I've always loved this one. I would fantasize about seeing it as a kid, so I built it up in my mind as some epic movie, and when I finally saw it, it wasn't too far off my expectations. It's definitely one of the best sequels, with plenty of atmosphere, and keeping Loomis in the mix gave it a perfect sense of belonging.

Also, like the other poster said, it would've been cool to have Danielle Harris as Laurie in the remake. Better than that obnoxious Scout.

It wasn't bad. I definitely like it more than all the sequels/remakes that followed it.

I liked it for the most part. Story was decent, Danielle Harris' debut, Kathleen Kinmont was SMOKIN', and Donald Pleasance was still fantastic as Dr. Loomis.

Only thing that really bothered me about it was that damn mask. Almost made him look like he had a Japanese face or something. The eyes were all wrong. I like slanted, more droopy eyes from the original. Almost made Michael look sad which I feel adds to the creepiness of him. The straight eyes in the mask in H4 and the completely white face just didn't gell IMO.

Aside from that, it was a pretty solid sequel.

Other than H2 - which supposedly takes place in the same night as the original - this is definitely the best sequel.

No, I mean H2...I've always used H2 as a brief term for Halloween II. Even before RZ's dreadful re-imaging.

This is my fave after the first two. Plot holes aside (how does one manage to see after having both eyes blown out and burnt to oblivion) It does have a decent story, the cast are all likeable and it has incredible atmosphere. The creepy tone of the film is set in the very first few frames.

Myers does look he's been eating too many pies but I can overlook that.
