Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (1988)

Dwight H. Little directs Donald Pleasence, Ellie Cornell and Danielle Harris in this slasher sequel where Michael Myers returns to Haddonfield.

Better than its reputation. If you rented a Halloween sequel at random then this is probably the closest to what you might imagine an entry that doesn’t try and reinvent the wheel might look like. So it delivers solid thrills. Child star Danielle Harris is a good addition, the third act siege sequence is well handled… very reminiscent of series progenitor John Carpenter. There’s enough to like if very little to marvel at. The ending is a genuine doozy.
