Summary: After 10 years he is back to kill his sister's daughter, Jamie. Dr. Loomis is the only man that can stop him, but can he make it in time. This movie was way better than Halloween 3, but is it better then the first movie? I can no. The movie does do a lot of things right and some wrong. The ending to this movie came out of no where and it was shocking and it was a brilliant twist, go watch the movie just to see what I mean.
Summary: Entertaining at parts, Sort of dumb in others. Doesn't have the same feel that the previous Halloween films had, Comes off as a generic horror film but with Michael Myers in it. Not a terrible movie but I expected better.
Summary: "Halloween 4" stands with the original "Halloween" on my list of favorite Halloween movies. The storyline to this film was fantastic. The acting was brilliant. Too bad that we didn't hear much from Ellie Cornell after this movie and Halloween 5, but she is a fantastic actress. Danielle Harris's portrayal of Jamie Lloyd, Laurie Strode's 9 year old daughter is what makes this movie my "Halloween 4" stands with the original "Halloween" on my list of favorite Halloween...
Summary: The Return of The Shape! Long awaited by fans, and long scorned by critics as squandering any praiseworthy qualities of the first two films, Halloween IV manages to revive the series by revealing a new character that was later abandoned in the true successors to the originals (Halloween VII, Halloween VIII). While it does at least attempt to provoke some fear, it is through great time The Return of The Shape!
Summary: Is it as good as the first one? No. Is that a fair statement? No. Halloween II did its fair share to distance the franchise from its brilliant roots, and with no Carpenter on board, H4 didn't stand a chance to fully right the ship. That said, it got plenty of things right; this is probably the best of the many, many sequels in the series. Can't say I was crazy about Michael's mask in this Is it as good as the first one? No. Is that a fair statement? No.
Ten Years Ago He Changed The Face of Halloween, Tonight He's Back.

Excerpt: After sitting out SEASON OF THE WITCH or better yet Halloween III didn't quite make the bank the first two films did, producers decided to bring Michael back and Halloween 4 came about. H4, picks up a decade after the events of Halloween II but now Michael awakens from his coma to go after his niece. Haddonfield is once again the backdrop for over-sexed teens and sheriff's running around town looking for Myers. Donald Pleasence returns as Dr.
A mediocre film, a mediocre transfer, mediocre audio, mediocre extras

Excerpt: After the spectacular independent smash hit Halloween came a line of disappointing sequels. In fact, the only one I'd recommend was 3, which had nothing to do with the Shape at all. If only they'd went in that direction... But no, apparently the world needs more slashers, so the show must go on. First of all, it's a pretty bad film.
