Halloween 5 (1989) Review:

This fifth film of the Halloween series is some very basic Halloween, with Myers coming and killing everything on its way. Do not expect anything from the plot as it is virtually inexistent. The fun part is that, for once, the victims make some sorts of plan to organize themselves before Myers’ arrival, so there are not the usual useless pieces of meat waiting to be slain. So-so fourth sequel. Jamie is unable to speak after her last encounter with Michael Myers and is in hospital.

Obviously, it isn’t long before Myers is back and is after her, who is Myers niece, and everyone around her. A decent performance from future horror favorite Danielle Harris, this probably for fans of the series only as its kinda predictable but fans of the Halloween franchise and old school horror will find plenty to enjoy here.

Another difference from the previous Halloween is that, here, Myers shows some kind of humanity (very shortly) which could have been interesting but was not further developed. Recommended to fans of the series only.
