Critic Reviews for Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers
You can tell that it felt very rushed and things were kind of clobbered together to make this movie at the last second.
I need to state for the record that Donald Pleasence is a truly great actor... But he also loved to chew the scenery, and the middle period of the Halloween franchise gave him plenty to sink his teeth into.
Fourth entry in the Halloween horror series is a no-frills, workmanlike picture.
It seems the latest stage in some curious evolutionary pattern; the slasher species keeps proliferating and getting weaker at the same time.
Audience Reviews for Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers
The movie's hilarious disregard for logic makes it definitely more entertaining than its two terrible predecessors, as it fully embraces the absurd (and is not even ashamed of doing so) and turns Michael Meyers into an indestructible devil (or "evil on two legs").
Now this is more like it. Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers feels much more like a sequel to me than Halloween II does. It's also made much better than that film was, too. Let's take a look at the positives. You have Donald Pleasance returning to his career-defining role, a great young actress in Danielle Harris, a great cinematographer/writer/director team behind the scenes, and best of all, you have John Carpenter's and Debra Hill's non-involvement. It's great that they started everything but their ideas about what to do with the series weren't very good, and I'm happy that they handed the reins over to Moustapha Akkad. This is a great sequel in a horror franchise where few good films can be found. My only gripes are the almost sex scene (not necessary), the extraneous boyfriend character and Michael himself. He's not as impressive as he is in the original, but I doubt anyone can ever recreate or better that performance. I'm nit-picking here obviously, and I'm also blabbering on, but I really enjoy Part 4 as it is, to me at least, the best sequel of the series.
After the absence of Michael Myers in part three, the filmmakers decided to bring him back with a vengeance. In what is the best sequel along with Part 2 and H20, Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers is a fine return of our favorite boogeyman. A very chilling film, Halloween 4 delivers terrific jolts that will delight fans that were disappointed in Season of the Witch. Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers is definitely a sequel that lives up to the second film in the series. I thought that this film was very well done. The film manages to bring effective scares and delivers what Halloween fans want in a Halloween film. This film is one atmospheric horror film, and in has touches that have made the first one so effectively creepy. A Sequel that's pretty impressive, it offers new scares and screams for Halloween fans. The Return of Michael Myers erases the slate clean of the stain that was Season of the Witch. This is film is downright Creepy and is full of suspense, it will delight Halloween fans that were disappointed with part 3. There are plenty of effective jolts, scares and decent performances to keep the die-hard fans happy. This one of the best sequels of the series and it delivers something scary, effective and thrilling. With the return of Michael, you definitely get a film that brings on what you'd expect from a good Halloween sequel. The Return of Michael Myers is far superior to Season of the Witch. Welcome back, Michael.
