It is exactly one year later since Michael Myers returned to terrorise his hometown of Haddonfield, and his long-lost niece, Jamie Lloyd. Now, he wants revenge.
Jamie, who has lost her ability to speak since attacking her foster mother, has developed a telepathic link with her uncle. Dr. Sam Loomis has realised this, and plans to use it to finally put an end to Michael's rage.
But unbeknown to them, a stranger has come to Haddonfield, and he is a key factor in the outcome of the madness that has plagued Haddonfield on Halloween for over ten years......
The fourth movie wasn't much cop, but it had the element of Myers returning for a Halloween sequel, much like Diesel returning for the Fast and Furious franchise, but while those movies are trashy fun, this one looks so messed up for some reason.
You get the feeling that so Many people messed around With the film, because half of the time, it really makes no sense, unless you watch the sixth installment.
I mean who on earth was the man in black, and why did he release Myers from Jail? All will be revealed if you see the next one, which is even worse.
On the plus side, Harris is great in her role, and there are one or two decent bits, but otherwise, there are time in the film where if you listen very carefully, you can hear Carpenter banging his head against the wall.
A wasted idea, really dull, and almost incomprehensible....
