Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers (1995) Review:

The sixth installment of Halloween is way gloomier and darker than the previous Halloween movies, which felt like a breath of fresh air in comparison. There are no goofy one-liners written in this installment’s script, and Michael is at his most ruthless. Paul Rudd as Tommy Doyle, the kid babysat by Laurie Stroke in the original, does a great job as co-lead in the film. The other lead, of course, is Donald Pleasance, returning as Dr. Loomis for the last time in the franchise. Watching Pleasance play Loomis in this movie is sad in that old age took the actor’s strong persona and character of Loomis away.

Contrary to how many people feel about The Curse, I found the movie to have a decent story. That is up until the ending, which any viewer has to knock the writers for since it’s very incomplete. In order to satisfy the urge for a better ending, many huge Halloween fans such as myself, turn to the Producer’s cut of the film. The Producer’s cut is fairly accessible and offers about fifteen minutes more of cut footage, mostly towards the end, but sadly it isn’t as strong as most will expect.

This sixth Halloween movie follows the events from the 4th and 5th films well but truly stands on its own for being the darkest film. Yet I think of it as a mediocre addition to the franchise. Halloween 6: The Curse is of course highly recommended to Halloween fans, but also to anyone looking for a slasher flick with a darker mood and creepier atmosphere.
