Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (1988) Is Not A Sequel, It’s A Remake

It’s quite humorous when you think about it. Halloween III: Season of the Witch tried to be completely different from the original Halloween which resulted in pissed off fans, and Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers tried to be nearly the same as the original Halloween but still resulted in pissed off fans like myself. The only difference between Halloween 4 and the original, is that this reimagining is drastically worse. They should’ve just called this one “John Carpenter’s Halloween: Mediocre Edition” if I’m being frank. The newer films simply can’t capture the raw and evenly paced direction that at least the first two entries enticed. (Verdict: C)

With that aside, I’m glad they at least beefed up Michael Myers in this one. This is the #1 Myers you don’t want to mess around with. Well, that aside Austin Powers.

Also, the ending was cute as hell. You’ll know what I’m talking about if you’ve seen the film.
