Overview

This fourth entry in the Halloween franchise focuses on Jamie Lloyd (Danielle Harris), the niece of ubiquitous masked killer Michael Myers (George P. Wilbur). Jamie tries to lead a normal life, but she can't escape the vengeance of her "funny uncle," who once more escapes from the loony bin. The only echo of the original Halloween -- and a faint one at that -- is the casting of Donald Pleasence as Dr. Loomis, who manages to get through his "We must stop him!" scenes as if mouthing the words for the first time. Though as predictable as they come, Halloween 4 is at least well acted, directed, and photographed.

Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers 4.4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 23 reviews.

This one was okay better enough than the third one which had nothing to with the Halloween story about Michael Myers so why call it part if its a different story and junk? This one was okay, it actually did have Michael but didn't like the way they skipped something of it like not have Laurie but having her 'daughter' only there and her not there. So many questions we have about this as why did she leave her to be chased by Michael and how did she end up with her now foster family. Do they know about Michael and her mother or what? We do see that Jamie has a picture of her mother and stuff but when Michael comes to the house and stuff he looks at the picture and just puts it aside as if he doesn't care about her. What exactly happened after the events of part 2 when the hospital exploded? How was Dr. Loomis and Michael being treated with the fire burns they recieved after the explosions at the hospital? It seems we may never know but can make some guesses about it. Hopefully the ninth one would be better and can make up to the cost of the not so good sequels and stand by the original. Okay movie.

After seeing the sequels again, they're not really that bad, though the creepiest by far is part 6. Here however we meet Jamie who happens to be Laurie's daughter. Now Michael goes after her and Loomis has to warn the town yet again and save the day, uh, night. Jamie lives with her new family including Rachel who I though was an alright character, even likable. Though at times Jamie does get slightly annoying, especially in part 5. I'll admit Danielle Harris did a good job in the role. I recommend watching it even though the series in a way went in a different direction, which I don't mind but at least they got Myers and Loomis to return. Ending was brutal but creepy at the same time. The film has its share of questions like what happened to Laurie after part 2? I guess it answers that but if you've seen part 7 then doesn't that like contradict sequels 4-6? All in all I like the movies, great to watch on Halloween.

I love this movie. The music may only be a reprise of the first two, but it eliminated that 'disco feel' from the first two. Rachel and Jamie are easily two likeable characters, and the acting was fantastic. I enjoyed this movie much. Joe.

I love Jamie from Halloween 4 and 5. She's a great actress and she does a great job acting for her young age. So far I've seen Halloween 4, 5, and 6. I love Halloween 4 and 5 the best because Jamie (Danielle Harris) is in it and she's hot and cute too.

This is one of the greatest of the Halloween Movies as a matter of fact you dont need to have the whole series just stick with "Halloween - 1978" "Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers" "Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers" All the rest sucked espeacially Halloween - Ressurection

What a fantastic film! This really reminded me of the first two. It had a similar story line, yet, not too similar, to the first two Halloween films. Great film, great actors, and, can you believe it, GREAT DIRECTOR! I commend all workers behind "Halloween 4- The Revenge of Micheal Myers".

This was an okay movie and wasn't all that horrible except for the whole gap between 2-4. I'm still wondering what they were thinking of doing 3. Like what's the point of calling it 3 if it has nothing to do with myers &quot he is in it, shown in a commercial about part 1&quot . anyway they should of continued the story or something. let's hope if they ever make a new installment &quot i don't mean the remake&quot , like answer all the unanswered questions that has been bugging us fans for years and maybe end the halloween series once and for all or something. we can only dream. anyway give these sequels a chance. they aren't THAT bad.

This movie was pretty good although I recomend Halloween 1 or 2 rather than 4. In one and two, they were so much more suspensefull and scary! In this one, although it is frightening, If you've seen 1-3, you know what's going to happen such as: How he kills his victims, what he acts like, ect. In this film, Michael Myers's targets are Laurine AND her daughter. There are several exciting, and seemingly conclusive parts in this, but personaly, I enjoyed the part when Laurine and her daughter are ''running for their lives'' whil Myers walks patiently after them. It may not sound like much from what I'm ''saying'', but when you watch it, you'll understand. I say: BUY IT! It's a heck of alot better than Halloween III!
