Halloween 5

Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers (1989)

Directed by: Dominique Othenin-Girard
Written by: Dominique Othenin-Girard, Michael Jacobs, Shem Bitterman
Starring: Donald Pleasence, Danielle Harris, Wendy Kaplan, Beau Starr, Tamara Glynn, Jeffrey Landman, Jonathan Chapin, Matthew Walker, Donald L. Shanks, Ellie Cornell

Okay, this time, indestructible, dog-killing, psychopath Michael Myers doesn't get killed when he fell down a mineshaft and got dynamite thrown on him. He survived, and was washed down the river where he was rescued by a hermit and nursed back to health. Come Halloween time, he murders the kind hermit and goes off to kill his niece and his indestructible, psychopathic doctor.

Along the way, he goes around stabbing young people who have sex, and a few who don't, and one or two people who look at him funny (never give the guy with the white mask and the pitchfork a funny stare).

Oh yeah, and there's this other guy who never really does anything. He just walks around and looks mysterious. I guess he tries to set Mike on fire at the end, but it's kind of hard to tell...

From what I heard this movie had some really bad script problems, which is apparent in it's lack of an ending. They try to make up for it in the next sequel, but I'm getting ahead of myself.

The little girl, Danielle Harris, is pretty good. I just found out today that she's in the new movie, playing some more Michael-fodder no doubt. She's better than a lot of the older women in the movie. They killed off Ellie Cornell (yay!) but a couple of others popped up to take her place (yay!). It's like the hydra (yay!).

Anyway, there was a part with a scythe that I liked... I just like scythes...


I watched Dr.Who last night... no surprise there... I liked those amblin' shamblin' scarecrows. They were good. Yep.
