News & Interviews for Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers
Critic Reviews for Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers
This was the beginning of the end for the Halloween franchise.
A bit more refined in its details than the conventional horror movie.
It's clear that the filmmakers didn't know where this was headed, and the result is an aimless, muddled mess.
It's peak absurdity for the franchise, but Halloween 5 commits the far more egregious sin of also being rather dull.
Audience Reviews for Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers
Donald Pleasence devouring the scenery is basically the only thing that makes this awful sequel less painful to watch, since everything else is a blatant display of incompetence from everyone involved in making this happen - especially the amount of people who wrote it.
What began as a great rebirth of the Halloween series in The Return of Michael Myers turns quickly into mediocrity with the fifth entry. Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers throws all of the wonderful character study out the window established in the previous film and just aims straight on for pure terror only, and ultimately misses its mark. For starters, the overall style of the film is just way too busy. Odd camera angles and over-the-top performances don't really suit this series and they definitely don't work in this film. The score also sounds too much like a retread of the original score, making it hollow and uninteresting. From this point on, the Halloween series declines and just can't manage to rise to the occasion ever again.
Fifth entry in the Halloween franchise is an interesting direction for the series. Halloween 5 offers a darker take on the tale. It's pretty much more of the same as before, but it does have a few more things going for it. To say the least, the film has a few more creepy scenes added in the mix. Halloween is another solid sequel but at times it's pretty weak, but it does have a lot of redeeming qualities only diehard Halloween fans would love. The film does possess a very atmosphere, which adds so much to the overall film. As far as sequels are concerned, this fifth entry is a fine installment that though flawed, manages to delivers some good, effective jolts. But like I previously stated, this film does have a few weak moments, but overall, the film is pretty solid, and delivers something that the fans will enjoy. There have been a few bad sequels, but this fifth entry is not one of them. Die-Hard fans will be pleased with this one. I enjoyed the dark, creepy atmosphere. The acting here was pretty good as well, and the story was pretty well constructed as well. Usually sequels lose their intensity, but with this fifth entry, the filmmakers have made one of the better installments in the series, and considering that this is the fifth film, that says something. Halloween F is a good follow-up to the fourth entry in the franchise. A good entry, but not the best.
