October 30, 1988, and Michael Myers has been in a coma since that night a decade ago when his doctor set him on fire.
An ambulance makes its away along the road to Ridgemont, and Myers is on his way to another hospital. During the ride, he overhears the crew mention his young niece, and he kills them.
Dr. Loomis is alerted by the state troopers after the ambulance is found with blood everywhere.
Myers has already started to make his way toward Haddonfield, where he confronts his niece in a pharmacy, and then kills the town's phone & power lines leaving his niece and adopted sister trapped.
Now he's coming to pay young Jamie a visit....
In some sort of way, it was a smart move to bring Myers back after the experiment with the very good third movie, but it's more or less more of the same, Myers stalking family and killing silly people in wonderful ways, without even doing anything more than a slight stroll,
Back in 1988, i'm sure this would have been an awesome release, especially as at the time, Jason and Freddy were slightly losing there appeal, but twenty five years later, it's doesn't hold up too well.
Performances are okay, especially Harris and Pleasence, but the rest of the young cast are just Myers fodder, waiting for him to walk slowly toward them.
All in all, if you are a completest, it's worth seeing, just don't expect too much.
