HALLOWEEN 5: THE REVENGE OF MICHAEL MYERS (1989)

Directed by Dominique Othenin-Girard

Starring Donald Pleasence and Danielle Harris

The previous picture, "Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers," came out more than seven years after a previous "Halloween" flick that focused on Myers, and fans were hungry for more. But this one was cranked out a year after part 4 and no one was particularly interested.

The film takes off immediately after the events in Part 4. Myers, after being gunned down by an army of police officers, falls into a river, floats downstream, and takes refuge in the home of an old man. A year passes. Myers kills the old man and heads out, looking to kill his young niece, Jamie, played once again by Harris. Jamie, recovering in a mental institution after stabbing her step-mom in a fit of insanity following the events in Part 4, now has a psychic connection with her uncle. She's also mute.

Dr. Loomis (Pleasence) now apparently lives in Haddonfield and is practically a friend of Jamie's family. A strange man in black seems to be tailing Michael on his way to Haddonfield. Michael Myers romps around town in broad daylight wearing his mask, and no one seems to really notice, except for the mysterious man in black.

There are some nice scenes, at least, including a car chase through a Christmas tree farm. But all in all, the film doesn't hold up, and won't make any sense if you're not familiar with Part 4, itself not a great film. It would be a long six years until the next film: the even-worse "Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers."
