Halloween 4 (1988) Review:

The problem with this movie is that apart from the brilliant ending, there is, like in most Halloween sequels, no story at all. The writers did not even try to make Myers reappear in a credible way, they just made him reappear. This fourth entry in the Halloween franchise focuses on Jamie Lloyd, the niece of ubiquitous masked killer Michael Myers. Jamie tries to lead a normal life, but she can’t escape the vengeance of her funny uncle once more escapes from the loony bin.

The only echo of the original Halloween and a faint one at that is the casting of Donald Pleasence as Dr. Loomis, who manages to get through his “We must stop him!” scenes as if mouthing the words for the first time. Though as predictable as they come, Halloween 4 is at least well acted, directed, and photographed. And kill for no apparent reasons. Fans will probably like this movie and I understand them as it is some genuine Halloween, which is always good. Nevertheless, this one of the worst movies in the series.
