the weakest of the sequels; but still good

Well, once again, that psycho nutjob Michael Myers has survived being run down by a car and falling down a mineshaft to resume his stalking of little niece Jamie Lloyd-Carruthers in HALLOWEEN 5: THE REVENGE OF MICHAEL MYERS.

This is perhaps the weakest of the "Halloween" sequels, though it does introduce some good ideas into the story. Thanks to some strange case of evil transferrence, Jamie (Danielle Harris), confined to a child clinic, can now psychologically "zone-in" to Michael Myers, and provides a valuable tool in his recapture. Donald Pleasence reprises his role of Dr. Loomis, whose quest has changed into acting as Jamie's guardian at the clinic. Also back from the 4th sequel is Ellie Cornell, as Jamie's stepsister Rachel.

Michael's "immortality" almost becomes a joke in HALLOWEEN 5, with the poor fellow shot by a harpoon-rifle, beaten with a two-by-four, and surviving yet another fiery carcrash. On the upside, you get foxy Wendy Kaplan (as Rachel's best friend Tina) running around for most of the movie wearing a sexy French maids' costume.

HALLOWEEN 5 is by far the most laughable of the "Halloween" franchise, but hardcore fans are sure to love it anyway.
