Conclusion: Halloween 4 isn't anywhere near the top of the list of "best movies in the series," but it's a good effort and a solid return to the Michael Myers arena after a stray towards Silver Shamrocks and computer chipped masks and Northern California settings.

Summary: With Rob Zombie’s latest takes on the franchise, Halloween has continued to not only live, but thrive for almost 40 years. Danielle Harris has gone on to star in Zombie’s version, and she has certainly established herself in the horror field. You have to look at this film as part of this vast history and take it for the good and the bad. It’s not a movie that is in danger of being considered a classic, but you can pick it up for very little money.
Excerpt: It has been ten years since Michael Myers kicked off his blood soaked reign of terror, so Haddonfield has moved on, but not forgotten the madman. As the town goes through the usual motions, Myers lies in a coma and is about to be moved to another institution, or at least that’s what the plan was. But Myers wakes up and of course, wants to slash his way free and continue his murderous path.
Conclusion: After 'Halloween III' ended with a thud, producer Moustapha Akkad took the series, returned to the basics in 'Halloween 4.' Starring Danielle Harris as Michael Myer's niece, the third sequel is a fun addition to the mythos and legacy of the Haddonfield massacre, igniting a popular and beloved horror franchise. Although the Blu-ray comes to town with improved audio and video, the presentation is still only a passable high-def transfer that will at least make fans happy.
