"You can't kill the bogeyman," the children insist to a terrorized Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) in the original Halloween. How right they are. Laurie is gone, but guess who's back in Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers? Acting as if the third entry never existed, this installment picks up 10 years after the original, with mad maniac Myers in a coma and moved to a new facility. But wouldn't you know it that as soon as a loose-lipped orderly lets slip that Myers has a surviving niece he springs back into action, leaving a bloody trail of corpses on the road to Haddonfield. Donald Pleasance returns as Dr. Loomis, scarred and crippled from his last encounter with Myers and seething with a fanatical zeal to stop the freak from repeating his previous rampage. Pleasance is the best thing about the film as an aging hero seemingly on the verge of madness who drags a bum leg in his manic rush to save little orphan Jamie (Danielle Harris), the 10-year-old waif terrorized by her homicidal uncle. Director Dwight Little has managed a generic if professional slasher picture, rife with improbabilities and dominated by a killer whose superhuman powers reach near-mystical dimensions, but he delivers the goods: shocks, stabs, and cold, cruel killings. --Sean Axmaker

I would recommend this movie to all people who love Halloween, Michael Myers, and movies in general. I love this movie!
I was pleased with the quality of the Blu Ray and enjoyed the new interview with the director.
If you watch this movie as often as I do, you've already ordered your copy. If you've never seen this movie and don't care about commentary tracks, you could grab the DVD, but I'd still recommend the Blu Ray since it is the best version available.
Recommended for fans of the Halloween series as well as the other serial killer slasher flicks. This one moves quickly and has greater plot depth than most.
What can be done, can be undone. And so Michael spends another Halloween decimating a police force and destroying a power substation, plunging the town into carefully controlled darkness. Those who aren't murdered rally to make another vain attempt to destroy Michael for good. But. Unfortunately. "You can't kill damnation, mister."
Bless their hearts, they do keep trying.
Donald Pleasance adds serious credibility to this movie with his performance. Really good.
Mike is played very Ghostly by George P Wilbur as he moves silently and creepily thru streets and hallways. Wilbur is considered among the best Myers actors. Blah blah blah highlights include the rooftop scene. So on...just watch the film....the ending isn't such a great idea IMO but whatever. All in all,very good sequel for what it is...
This movie was intended to as Akkad stated "Go back to the basics". I personally feel that the series didn't go back to the basics untill Halloween: H20 ten years later after this movie. This movie was still a fun ride and has the most haunting opening title sequence in the entire series. The characters are well developed and performed by a strong cast. This movie was highly praised by fans of the series, more so then the other sequels. Donald Pleasence returned to play Dr. Loomis and he's still the heart of the series. Director Dwight Little lifted the infamous shot in Vertigo by Alfred Hitchcock. You will see this in the gas station scene. Just like the other sequels, this isn't a great movie but still enjoyable and good quality horror.
now, its true, this is not anything like the original, but it is still okay...
i would recommend this movie to anyone that has not seen it, especially those that are the biggest fans of halloween and the franchise.
