|The changing of the guard?|
I mean let's be honest folks, these movies really do symbolize the haunting awesomeness that makes doing a horror movie marathon so awesome!
Wit that said, the next movie that I am doing in this lot is: Halloween 4: The Return Of Michael Myers (1988)!
|A killer movie, that ushered in one of the great scream queens!|
Now before I continue on with the story, I should say this, when John Carpenter tried to take the Halloween series back to where he had originally wanted it to be (basically as an anthology series of movies with different stories,) and made Halloween 3: Season Of The Witches (1982) as it's own independent movie completely separate from the original story line... Well that concept pretty much didn't work, and so the studios brought us back to, 'Haddonfield', with Halloween: The Return Of Michael Myers (1988)!
"Why now? You waited ten years. I knew this day would come. Don't go to Haddonfield, If you want another victim, take me. But leave those people in peace. Please, Michael?" - Dr. Sam Loomis to Michael Myers (a quote from Donald Pleasence in, Halloween 4: The Return Of Michael Myers (1988)!)
|It looks like is niece is not to happy to see her uncle!|
As for the story, this movie takes place about ten years after that fateful Halloween night of 1978... Michael Myers (George P. Wilbur) is in a coma, the scarred Dr. Sam Loomis (Donald Pleasence) has never really gotten over it, and Laurie Strode is dead... And the rest of the town has begun to forget about it... Including Laurie's daughter, 'Jamie Lloyd' (Daniel Harris), who seems to know nothing about it!
All seems to be quiet, eh?
Well when a team is sent in to bring the slumbering giant mass murderer, he learns something new about the family he likes to visit on Halloween... And that is that he has a niece living in his home town!
This of course wakes ole Mickey up, and takes out his jailers, and heads home to, 'meet' his young niece...
And as for the new family that Jamie is living with... Well they are about to discover the deadly secret of her family when they meet her uncle, and he tries to take them all out!

And the story... Awesome! The only things I didn't like about this movie are as follows:
1. There are a ton of retconned story lines in this franchise, and when I found out that Laurie Strode was still alive, and faked her death so that she could go and live in California... Well let's just put it this way, it kind of destroyed a little bit of both story lines for the Jamie Lloyd Halloween films, and original series as well...
2. The last thing that I am I going to have to say that I really didn't like about this movie is the mask... I know it is a dumb thing, but this one in my opinion is the worst of the entire batch of movies!
Anyway, if you haven't seen this movie yet, check it out... It is a good, one and well worth it! I thought so, and I suspect you will to!
