Part five is the most effective entry since Halloween II; it’s claustrophobic, atmospheric and even quite chilling at times. All the characters go absolutely mental, the screenplay is fun and there’s some cool death sequences. I won’t sit here and say that any of these sequels are classics or anything, I just find them entertaining.
Part 5 is one of the best Halloween films, and I still have NO idea why people hate it so much. Clown cops, tattoo man/ending and an unexplained Myers house upgrade are certainly oddities, which could be taken as faults. But I actually think Girard directed a fantastic film with a lot of depth. This isn't a joke. Loomis is now understandably a madman, trying to catch Michael at the expense of Jamie Lloyd's freedom.
