Product Overview

This fourth installment of the series takes place ten years after the original and finds the man in the William Shatner mask in a coma and being transferred from Richmond Mental Institute to Smith's Grove. However, the van gets into a horrible accident, skidding off the road and exploding. Predictably, Myers' body is nowhere to be found in the wreckage, alarming both the skeptical police and the indefatigable Dr. Loomis (Donald Pleasence). Soon, Myers is spotted back in Haddonfield, and it becomes obvious that his next target is his young niece, Jamie (Danielle Harris). His return has whipped the town into a frenzied mob, which proves to be unfortunate for the Halloween revelers who have chosen the popular "Michael Myers" mask as their costume. Often considered the best of the sequels, THE RETURN OF MICHAEL MYERS is a return to form for the series after the debacle of HALLOWEEN 3.Format: DVD MOVIE

Review Halloween 4 ends on a note of darkest irony - a bleak conclusion that works largely because it is as daring as it is unexpected. It also promises to take the franchise in an entirely new, unexplored direction...the final minute of Halloween 4 remains as unsettling today as it was during its 1988 theatrical run. The real reason to see this movie is not for the predictable build-up, but for the cliffhanger provided by director Dwight H. Little and screenwriter Alan B. McElroy.

Review "H4" is very much the cheap knockoff of its prototype, but not half as visceral...What's new? Well, the focal victim is now Myers' 6-year-old niece Jamie (homage to Jamie Lee Curtis, heroine of the first film?). The victims are a more well-rounded bunch, demographically. And the ending settles the question of Michael Myers, even as it suggests the probability of "Halloween 5." It, too, is a cheap rip-off (from the "Friday the 13th" series) but then again, new blood is so hard to come by these days, even if it's easy to spill.
