5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome home, Michael October 21, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Halloween 4 is a terrific entry in the best slasher series of all time. While it doesn't have quite the all-pervading atmosphere, suspense, and general gloom and doom of the incomparable original, it more than lives up to the Halloween tradition. To me, the key to this movie's success is the acting talent of both Donald Pleasance (Dr. Loomis) and young newcomer Danielle Harris (Michael's niece Jamey). Disfigured from his encounter with Michael ten years earlier, Dr. Loomis strides through this movie as the avenging hero he is, having to convince foolish minds that Michael has returned home to wreak havoc yet again. Of course, you can blame a couple of paramedics for tipping Michael off that he still has a living relative, namely his sister Laurie's little girl Jamie (Laurie has supposedly died in an accident a year earlier). After Michael is transferred out from under Loomis' nose, he naturally escapes and begins leaving a trail of bodies on his way to Haddonfield. Loomis is right behind him, intent on saving the little girl from her evil uncle. The young Danielle Harris gives an incredible performance for someone so young, conveying emotion and fear quite convincingly. After this movie came out, I remember hearing some criticism of terrorizing such a young person in this type of horror atmosphere, and Harris spoke quite eloquently on the subject from her perspective. She brings to this movie talent well beyond her years.
Surprisingly, this movie is not altogether that graphic. We rarely get to see the actual coup de grace of each killing (and in a couple of cases we don't even see the actual murder), and even the remains of the slain never exhibit much blood loss. Of course, Michael uses a variety of means (including his bare hands) to murder his victims here.

5.0 out of 5 stars 10 YEARS AFTER HALLOWEEN II March 4, 2012
Format:DVD
Taking place 10 years after Halloween II, Myers and Loomis are revealed to have survived the events of II. Myers & Loomis were burned. Myers has been in a coma since then. I did like Michael's mask here. There are freakishly scary moments in the film, but some cool ones too.

Some of my favorite scenes:

- Myers & Loomis - Gas Station scene. Awesome scene that really picks up when Loomis sees and talks to Myers.

- Myers getting his mask from the costume store where Jamie was getting hers. It's just a hand grabbing the Myers mask. That's what's cool about it IMO.

- Myers stalking Rachel while she looks for Jamie, who got lost while trick or treating.

- The construction worker's death.

- Brady's death. I liked him. And I give him credit for being brave enough to tell Rachel to, "Get up there." while he took on Myers by himself. He did his best to no avail. I don;t like that Brady died. It was how Michael survived his attacks & the way he killed him that I liked. Instead of waiting for him to walk up the stairs, he should have went with Rachael & Jamie because even if he did end up dying, he would've survived longer at least. Maybe enough to help them get off the roof and running away. Wish he didn't die though. That's the problem with horror films. Usually at some point or another, the cool people die.

- Deaths of the drunk people who try to get Rachel & Jamie to safety.

- Rachel running down Michael with the truck. He just stood there still and took it. So badass!

- Michael being shot by the cops multiple times before finally falling through a mine shaft. It took countless shots from all the cops who were there for him to finally fall.

5.0 out of 5 stars Third Best Film in the Series with Harris Debuting. March 3, 2014
Format:DVD
Halloween 4 is a great sequel and the top third best film in the entire franchise. One of the reasons is the strong cast but most notably Danielle Harris who plays the young niece of Michael Myers. Harris could have only been eight or nine in this film and acting at that age is difficult let alone in a horror film where you have to project many emotions to the audience. Harris does a great job with use of her eyes and different faces to express fear. It's a very exciting movie throughout with a good pace. The supporting cast was superb and you can really go down the line. Ellie Cornell who looks about thirty in this movie does a outstanding job as Rachel who is Danielle's older sister. Danielle was adopted and a great storyline to the movie is her wanted to have a relationship with Rachel that feels like a real sister. Rachel who is by all means a kind hearted girl but is preoccupied with her love life as she forges to start a serious relationship in Sasha Jenson. Jenson plays sort of a tweener character as he is sort of a player but also will protect Danielle and Rachel from Myers. Donald Pleasence is the heat of the film he once again plays the character of Dr. Loomis and just as good as previous outings. In this one he is more determined than every to protect Danielle and the town from harm. Pleasence in the history of horror has to be one of the greatest hero's to come along to fight the unstoppable force in evil. No matter what Dr. Loomis is never afraid of Myers or afraid of being killed to save the town from Myer's path of destruction. Loomis is brave and like Danielle we care deeply for his character who hope he does not meet his demise. Read more ›

Halloween 4: The Return Of Michael Myers
You sound like any other bandwagon puppet and are only repeating hearsay. Part 4 and 5 are scary, and I think gore adds to the effect even more so. I get so sick and tired of hearing thatr H1 was a "classic" no crap, it was the first one. Of course it is hard to top the original of... Read More
