Tim’s Slasher Tweet Reviews: “Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers” (1988)

We are back with another slasher double feature from our resident Twitter reviewer Tim Schilling. Today he is looking at “Halloween 4” and “Halloween 5”, one of the best loved Halloween sequels and another sequel that most fans would love to forget. Twenty+ years later, how well do these sequels hold up? Let’s dig in and find out if Michael’s knife is as sharp as ever with “Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers.”

Thoughts before the film:
Halloween is probably my least favorite slasher series… Why do I keep coming back to it? #Halloween4

Thoughts while watching:
0:10 I won’t even ask why Michael already has his mask back on, he was only in lockdown for like ten years.
0:17 I wonder how bodies get chewed up from a car crash so much that you can’t tell how many people there were.
0:21 The scene where dr. Loomis is in the gas station. Scared the crap outta me when I was young. I realize I was a big baby.
0:27 Oh no they hit a cow and flipped over! Is 50 First Dates a spin off?
0:29 I feel really bad for Jamie for some reason. She’s too little.
0:35 Dr. Loomis is the one that needs to be locked up I think sometimes.
0:38 El oh el Brady you stupid.
0:40 If the phone just keeps ringing when you call the police… bring out the rednecks.
0:59 Trolololol too bad Michael is already in the house.
1:12 The part where they’re on the roof is pretty intense.
1:24 Jamie you freaking psychopath.

Final Verdict:
Besides the lame beginning, Halloween: The Return of Michael Myers was actually decent. I loved the settings in the movie and the general idea of the story. It also had some very creepy shots of Michael which reminded me when I watched as a kid that scared the crap outta me.
