Tim’s Slasher Tweet Reviews: “Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers” (1989)

Here is the second half of our Michael Myers double feature from our resident Twitter reviewer Tim Schilling. “Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers” was rushed into production for release less than a year after the very successful “Halloween 4” to negative critical reception and poor box office. Is the film really a diamond in the rough or did it deserve the horrible reception it received?

Thoughts before the film:
Halloween 4 is probably my favorite sequel of the whole series. But, I haven’t seen this one in forever. Maybe that’ll change?

Thoughts while watching:
0:04 Legit, I don’t know why they just don’t chop Michael’s head off. That’ll be the end of him.
0:11 The dog better not die in this one.
0:18 Did something happen Jamie so you can’t talk or did they write that in with no reasoning?
0:21 Wah I liked you Rachel. Your death was pointless, and not even good.
0:28 Half of Halloween Resurrection was basically ripped off of this one.
0:40 I wonder how Michael learned how to drive?
0:45 That did not sound like cookie woman at all.
0:46 Oh okay you can talk again. Why? No reason.
1:01 These cops are so useless.
1:04 Boo editing. Release a movie the way it was meant to be seen.
1:12 I like how Rachel hasn’t even been mentioned since she died. She wasn’t a main character or anything.
1:24 Only this series could make a scene in a laundry vent thing last 5 minutes. At least it’s memorable.
1:24 Memorable as in this scared the crap outta me when younger.
1:25 Screw you. No reason to kill the dog. Completely pointless.
1:26 Danielle Harris is actually really good in this for being so young. She’s a scream queen at heart!
1:30 Dr. Loomis check yourself into an insane asylum.

Final Verdict:
I like how Halloween 4 and Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers were connected. Similar tone, similar sets, but a different story that was a great continuation of the 4th installment, not mentioning some huge and completely random plot holes.

  1. This is a movie I like way more than I should despite the problems. Regarding Rachel I wouldn’t say her death was pointless just handled wrong how such a smart character can become so oblivious, but it serves it’s purpose by making Jamie more alone.

    Also Tina says to Sam how Rachel must have gone to the country with her parents since she was unsure if she wanted to go or not. It was assumed she did go so there was no reason to mention her again
