An okay transfer of the movie on a bare-bones DVD.

Unfortunately, the makers of this disc decided NOT to include the alternate version that contains VERY interesting deleted and alternate scenes.

Hopefully a Special Edition of this film will be released that will feature both the Theatrical and Producer's Cut versions of this film.

A Kid's Review on January 2, 2003
Format: DVD
I like this movie. It's not that bad! Everyone says it is the worst in the series. I am not going to tell you the story line because it is very confusing. You have to watch it a few times. I will say things that were good in this movie and what were bad -
Good!
1) the man in black was finally unmasked
2) the death scenes were cool (my ex-girlfriend thinks that the gore was very high, she was right, this was the goriest one yet)
3) the story was actually complex (I was looking for a different story and I got one)
4) The acting is good (Paul Rudd, whose credits "Clueless" was very creepy as Tommy Doyle)
Bad
1) I hated the ending! After reading this, write an online review explaining the end. The ending is bad because we just hear a man screaming and we see the mask on the ground! Who was screaming? What happened to Loomis? Wynn? Myers?
That is my review! Hope you enjoyed it. Rated R for extreme violence, disturbing images, gore splattered everywhere, some harsh profanity, and brief nudity (nothing too bad, sexual-wise)

I've been a Halloween fan since the original in '78. For myself, the first and second are the best in the series. What comes after that is typically where the debate starts. For myself, Halloween 6 is second only to H20 in that secondary pack. The story is properly eerie if not a little disjointed. The cast is for the most part fun and engaging. Michael has a nice mask on him again. Which is a relief after the Jimmy Durante mask worn in Halloween 5 (referencing the huge nose for those unfamiliar with Durante). The cinematography is so rich and engaging, you want to run out and jump in a pile of leaves after watching this film. So the Halloween spirit is alive and well in the look of this picture. The acting is suitable for this style of film. And while there has been the infamous "director's cut" floating around proclaiming itself as the 'preferred version', I have to counter and say my preference remains with the official release. I never thought it a good idea to allow Dr. Loomis to be consumed by the evil spirit of Michael Myers, since this turned out to be Donald Pleasence final picture. Leaving it ambiguous was the right way to go. The Blu ray picture is excellent and easily the best I have seen for this entry. Bottom line: If your a fan of this movie, you should get this. And yes...The "extras" are missing here. But then again are you buying this for celebs to offer their phoney 'memories' of a film they likely forgot or do you want the movie? I want the movie.

Halloween The Curse Of Michael Myers is my favorite Halloween sequel, and, despite having horrible reviews, is the second best of the series (the first being part 1, of course). The movie realized that the series was getting pretty dull by part 5, so it adds a lot of new plot twists, like Michael being involved in some cult called "Thorn" that makes one person kill every member of his family. You'll also find out in this one who the Man In Black really is (I'll give you a hint, he was in ONE scene from the original).
The movie begins with Jamie Lloyd (no longer Danniele Harris, but J.C. Brandy) having a baby, which is then stolen by the man in black, who is going to make this baby Michael's sacrifice. However, a kind woman working there helps Jamie escape with her baby. This woman then meets her fate, impaled to a coat hanger by Michael Myers, who is now stronger and more enraged than ever!! Jamie does get away, and hides her baby at a bus depot, before she, to, meets her maker. Then, we go on to meet Kara Strode (Marriene Hagan) and her family. She's got a seven year old boy. She's going to college to make up for her past mistakes. Her father, John, dosn't approve of her staying at his place, where he already has two other people living, his wife, and his son, John (Bradford English). John Strode is an abusive alcoholic, who mistreats his entire family. Kara is a little bit creeped out by this man who's staring at her out his window. Well, this man happens to be Tommy Doyle (Paul Steven Rudd), who was being babysat by Laurie Strode when Myers attacked in 1978. He's a little messed up by this particular incident, and he thinks that Michael's returning.

This is one of the best movies in the great long going series of Halloween movies. I am a BIG fan of horror movies and this movie has and will always be one of my favorite movies to watch. It goes back to Halloween 1 and Halloween 2 with that atmosphere of a truley great suspense thriller. Also having Donald Pleasence in this movie greatly made this movie better for me. Halloween is just not Halloween with out Donald Pleasence playing Dr. Sam Loomis. The Story is great, we finely know the reason behind Michael maddness. The casting was great, the person who played Michael Myers did a awesome job, and the mask was terrifying. Todays horror movies are lacking both in stories and in scares. So for a truely great scary movie and a good addition to a great horror movie series, Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers is a movie to be seen.
