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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mr. Myers is back and well rested December 15, 2000
By Mark
Format:VHS Tape
The sequals continue in this slasher. I must say it was exilerating for me to watch due to the fact that I'm a huge fan of the series. The plot revolves around the fact that Michaels niece, Jamie, is being stalked by wicked psychopath Michael Myers. Stemming from the 1978 hit, Halloween 4 in my opinion is an good sequale which I promise will scare you stiff. Danielle Harris (Jamie) lights up the screen with her excellent acting along with Donald Pleasence (Sam Loomis) The reason this didn't earn a 4 is because of the some what thin plot and mediocre acting by the supporting cast members. Mostly hormone driven teens which you want to see die anyway. The movie can be a bit slow at times also. But that's kind of a contridiction due to the fact the original Halloween was slow and still was a great movie. In conclusion, I recommend this to any hard core horror flick fans. For others I think it will seem like any other "average" movie out there. Got to say something about what I said? E-mail me at: omicron_30@yahoo.com.

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 It isn't a man June 25, 2007
Format:DVD
This is still the sequel to Halloween 2 over H20 for me. Dannielle Harris is just brilliant in this film at such a young age. Donald also delivers as usual. this brought the franchise to new heights and spawned two more good sequels.

5.0 out of 5 stars Halloween 4/5 January 22, 2007
A Kid's Review
Format:DVD
Are the best sequels to the Halloween movies besides 2 and the original. Highly recommend. Danielle Harris gives a great performance as a child star. I can't wait to see her return as Annie in the remake of Halloween by Rob Zombie.

Format:DVD
If you thought the nightmare was over- you were DEAD wrong. Michael Myers is alive and well, and coming back to Haddonfield in "Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers", the fourth installment to the "Halloween" series and the third appearance of the sadistic Michael Myers. Without a doubt, "Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers" is the best "Halloween" sequel. It is just almost as good as the original in so many ways. "Halloween 4" sticks to a simple formula of the original but doesn't copy, it is well acted and direcred, and it is scary as they come. Halloween has returned to Haddonfield, and HE has come home... again.
First, "Halloween 4" stays with a simple, chilling story like the original "Halloween" but does not completely copy the film. It is hard for sequels to not stray too far from the series basics or not to just completely rewrite the original. Many series, such as "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre", "Friday the 13th", and "A Nightmare on Elm Street" tend to get repetative with their many sequels. "Halloween" however finds something new to add into the mix. Here, in "Halloween 4", the babysitter's nightmare comes true again. It's been ten years since Michael Myers killed 16 people until finally being stopped by Dr. Sam Loomis (Donald Pleasance). Myers and Loomis were both burned nearly to death, but they both lived, with Loomis gaining a limp and Myers being put into a coma. In those ten years, Lourie Strode has died with her husband Jimmy (from "Halloween II") in a car accident and left their daughter, Jamie (Danielle Harris) behind.

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
