Halloween 5:The Revenge of Michael Myers Movie Review





Halloween 5:The Revenge of Michael Myers is a 1989  horror movie sequel directed by Dominique Othenin-Girard and starring Donald Pleasence, Danielle Harris and Ellie Cornell.

This movie begins where the last one left off. Michael Myers is in the mine shaft alive. He makes his way out. There is an explosion but he doesn't get hurt. He wanders off down the rivers. He meets a local hermit and then he passes out. The hermit takes him in.Cut to one year later at the children's clinic in Haddonfield. Jamie has a nightmare about attacking her foster mother. She is in a trance and she is linked to Myers in some weird way. Meanwhile, Myers kills the guy who helped him.


Dr. Loomis comes in to see Jamie. She is mute. Rachel is with her. She is going away for a couple of days. She doesn't want to leave Jamie because of how she is. Myers is watching Rachel. Jamie can feel Myers near her. She draws pictures of her dog Max. Loomis calls Rachel and asks her about the dog. She goes to check on him and the dog is gone. He shows up but Dr. Loomis comes to the house and tells Rachel to get out. Rachel meets Myers who is in the house and she gets stabbed. Jamie can feel what is happening. Rachel's pal Tina comes to the house as she is staying there for the weekend.
Jamie sees Myers outside the clinic. She runs away from him. The staff find her. Dr. Loomis comes looking for Michael. He wants Jamie to tell him where he is but she can't.  Loomis goes to the Myers house with a gun and looks around. Michael is there and he is watching. He kills one of Tina's pals.


Jamie is getting ready for a Halloween party. Her friend Billy helps her. Tina gets picked up by Myers, who has killed Tina's pal and is posing as him by wearing his Halloween mask. Jamie has a funny turn as she can sense Myers. Dr. Loomis wants her to tell him where Myers is. She tries to tell them and the cops go to the store where Tina is. They save her from Myers. Jamie gets her voice back. She wants Tina to stay with her as she is afraid of Myers but Tina won't. Loomis tries to stop her from leaving. Jamie heads off with her pal Billy to find Tina. The cops are watching her. Myers is also watching her. Myers starts to make his way through Tina's friends. Myers comes after Tina and chases her. Jamie and Billy show up and distract Myers. He chases Jamie.


Loomis shows up and chases Michael. The cops show up and Tina is taken away. Jamie agrees to help Loomis to get Michael. Loomis tries to talk to Myers and he tells him to fight his rage and go home. He tells him that he will be waiting. Jamie waits in the Myers house. The cops are there too, waiting for Myers. Jamie senses him coming. The cops gets a distress call from the clinic. They go there. Loomis thinks that he will come to the house. He waits with Jamie. Myers shows up and Loomis tries to reason with him.Myers attacks him. Jamie gets out. There is a chase and they meet face to face. She talks to him and there is a moment when he shows emotion but then he reverts to his evil self and tries to kill her. Loomis shows up and he shoots Michael and he beats him. It seems as if he has been beaten. He gets taken to the police station where he is locked up. A man in black comes in and he sets an explosion. There is gunfire. Jamie goes into the station and finds all of the police men dead and Michael Myers has gone.


This sequel was pretty good. It is a continuation of the fourth movie and the two could have been one long film. It is what you would expect but I enjoyed it all the same. Myers is evil and silent as usual and Harris plays Jamie once again. There is nothing really new or original here, but it is worth a look if you enjoy the Halloween series of movies. I had fun watching it anyway and I will give it a 5/10.
