I have noticed that Halloween 5 tends to absorb a lot of abuse. I believe that happens because people judge it by inappropriate standards. After all, this is a story about the Bogeyman. This is horror fantasy. Halloween 5 makes no pretense of being a realistic crime drama. I judge films of this sort by atmosphere and suspense. Halloween 5 is very strong by the first standard and pretty good by the second. The film is shot in such a way that it actually feels like Halloween. The lighting and coloration are beautifully done. As regards suspense, no slasher film can match the original Halloween, but this one does have a couple of exceptional moments. The part where Michael Myers pursues the little girl, and also where he kills Tina, are presented in such a way that it feels like people are actually dying.Contrast that with the by-the-numbers feel of most slasher films, where you see so many killings that they kind of become a blur. And Donald Pleasence is brilliant as Dr. Loomis. He is yet another factor that separates Halloween from other slasher movies.
I certainly agree that this film could have done without the two dumb cops. And the telepathy. And the mysterious man in black. But the Halloween movies, when they are at their best, revolve around building a spooky atmosphere, effective stalking scenes, and big finales in which Dr. Loomis manages to salvage at least one person's life. Halloween 5 scores well in each of those areas. If you want real-life crime drama, tv is pretty well-stocked with shows that depict that.You won't find that in a Halloween movie. There are so many other places where you can find that, there's no point in looking for it in a slasher film.

This review is a little long, so please bare with me. There are also Spoilers.

Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers is a movie that has the fans split in the middle. A lot of people see this as the downfall of the series, while others praise it as the last great Halloween movie. I have to admit Halloween 5 is a movie I like a lot more than I should and I sometimes think I like the movie for more what it could have been instead of what it is. The one thing I will say is Halloween 5 is probably the most flawed of the series.

The script written by Michael Jacobs, Dominique Othenin-Girard & Shem Bitterman was rather weak and filled with numerous clichés; John Carpenter & Debra Hill they aren't. While not the worst script ever written, Halloween 5 has a lot of great ideas that never quite seem to work as well as they should. Bottom line is Halloween 5 feels more like a first draft rather than final shooting script.

They had some excellent ideas that if just re-worked a bit would have made Halloween 5 a very strong and solid movie despite being yet another sequel to long running franchises that dominated the 80s. I love when Loomis says, "I prayed that he would burn in hell. But in my heart, I knew that hell would not have him." That does show some decent writing right there, though it is very much Carpenter/Hill.

The first half of the movie Jamie is a mute and she also has a psychic link with Michael Myers. While that may have turned off some fans I think it was actually a solid idea. Jamie is helpless and afraid, but the problem is when all is said and done the psychic link between the two never really seems to go anywhere. At the end of the day it didn't advance the plot. It seems the makers had some good ideas, but abandoned them along the way.

Halloween is the best horror movie series. This DVD will be perfect even if it only included the High Def transfers. I hope they are working on the Blu-Ray Halloweens.

What is included:

* Widescreen Presentation enhanced for 16x9 TVs

* Audio commentary with director Dominique Othenin-Girard and actors Danielle Harris and Jeffrey Landman (HALLOWEEN 5)

* Inside Halloween 5: Documentary featuring rare behind the scenes footage, a cut scene, and interviews with Danielle Harris, Ellie Cornell, Don Shanks, Executive Producer Moustapha Akkad and Cinematographer Rob Draper

* Introduction by stars Danielle Harris and Ellie Cornell

* On-Set Halloween 5 Footage: Rare, never-before-seen footage taken on the set

* Theatrical trailer

This new remaster of Halloween 5 looks and sounds great. New details in almost every scene really flesh out exactly how great this film's cinematography is and all the distinct stylistic choices the director made. I especially like when two characters are trying visit a little girl at the hospital and you can clearly see Michael Myers looming in the background. Now you could always tell he was there, but i bet you never noticed he had a weapon in each hand! (if you did, congratulations!)
Also the new audio sounds fantastic, and is much better than the audio on the Halloween 4 bluray. Included in this release is a commentary with H5's Michael Myers' himself, Don Shanks, and the info he has to share is priceless, including talking about deleted death scenes, and how he speaks on how the film was described to him, making some of this info very interesting and valuable to fellow fans.
The bonus features aren't spectacular but whatever, I'm just happy to have to the bluray.
