HALLOWEEN 5: THE REVENGE OF MICHAEL MYERS (1989)
Anyway, Michael still wants to kill his niece, Jamie (yawn), so he heads back into town, steals a bitchin' Camaro and kills some people in meh fashion. It's not very entertaining....zero nudity, very little blood, 80's clothing and hair, Michael crying (what a pussy!!!), another unseen police station slaughter, Donald Pleasence yelling the same old lines all over again, a psychic link between the niece and Michael, a completely insane ending that tries to add some supernatural shenanigans to the Michael Myers story.
Worth watching for fans, but overall I was disappointed. I blame the crappy script and the director who according to IMDb hasn't done anything notable before or since HALLOWEEN 5.
Also, in the poster, why is Jamie still wearing the clown outfit from Part 4? She doesn't wear it at all in Part 5, except for in a brief flashback.
