HALLOWEEN 5: THE REVENGE OF MICHAEL MYERS (1989)

When I first saw this movie years ago I really enjoyed it, but watching in again for this review I was kinda bored. Michael looks goofy and he's not as hardcore as I remember. At the end of Part 4 Michael and his crooked shoulders got run the fook over and fell into a big hole. Well, after he fell into the hole he crawled out a convenient side exit and then floated down river to a hobo's shack where he hibernated for a year(!!!) until the following Halloween where he sprang to life like a fucking jack-in-the-box and started killing all over again.

The little girl (Michael's niece) is still around and for whatever reason Mike wants to kill the shit out of her. Annoying teenagers show up and promptly get slaughtered, but not in very entertaining ways. Michael did drive around a lot in an old Camaro which was kinda funny.

Zero nudity, very little blood, 80's clothing, Michael crying (what a pussy!!!) and a subdued Donald Pleasence. Worth watching, 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...unless you're a fan of OMEN IV.
