Movie Summary

Dominique Othenin-Girard
Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers is a horror film that picks up where Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers left off. Michael Myers (Don Shanks) is believed to be dead after falling down a shaft and having dynamite dropped on him. Michael awakens the day before Halloween, ready to seek revenge on his niece, Jamie (Danielle Harris), whom he previously tried to kill. Jamie is in a children's psychiatric ward, where she has been rendered mute because of what her Uncle Michael put her through. However, it seems that Jamie has a psychic connection with him, sensing he is still alive. Dr. Sam Loomis (Donald Pleasence) realizes the best way to find Michael and stop him once and for all is to use Jamie as bait. Jamie and Dr. Loomis arrive at the old Myers house, where Michael also happens to be. To find out if Michael gets his revenge on his niece or if Dr. Loomis is able to stop him, watch Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers.moreless
