As predictable as ever, Michael is still after his niece, Jamie J. It really is Sad James I cannot believe that original script had a Green Light. That said I disagree on the subject of Tommy. That trilogy ended up a complete mess in the end. This installment opens with Jamie Lloyd J. I think the pipe ending would have been better, and Tommy would have been less of a dick, if they had made it that the memory of what Michael did that night, to Tommy, to Laurie and to the town, had made him a little crazy and vengeful.
Generally it was propably considered a negative symbol that causes pain, chaos, disruption and… well you get the idea. But I thought the 4th and 5th installments were a little weaker than 6. Did you know that the writer of that film was a fan? But that one has some problems as well. When I watched this during my Halloween marathon, I was stomped by the horrible acting of that fucking Tommy-guy and by the hilarious appearance of Michael look how fat he is! It's six years after the events of the last film and Michael George Wilbur is back. You know what would have been a great way to end the character? I really feel sorry for Donald Pleasance who had to act in every Michael Myers movie until his death in 1995. I also felt the same way about Alien3 and about that Exorcist Prequel. Jamie was kidnapped by a bunch of evil druids who protect Michael Myers.
How is the lead pipe ending bad? Still just one complaint spawned the reshoots. I guess they needed some market differential to separate them from their many competitors. I can honestly say just from what James has shown here that the final version is infinitely better. Six years ago, Michael Myers terrorized the town of Haddonfield, Illinois. Michael myers was not a cults henchmen but rather the mortal vessal of the demon Thorn which the demon used to get sacrifices during the Halloween dates when the thorn constilation appeared, which is why Michael was unstopable and only killed on certain Halloween dates. If anyone creatively involved had given even the slightest, tiniest hint of a shit. In total he has probably produced 3 or more hours of content for Monster Madness month.
So basically this movie is a rotting confusing mess on more levels than most even realize. It set a standard that nothing since has come close to equaling -- not five Halloween sequels or numerous rip-offs. The other half, I didn't care. Therefore, since the bloodline continues, Michael's work isn't done. So that makes her 16.
So in a way, part 6 is simply Fanfiction. So you think that scream was one of the worst send offs to any actor. And it's up to Tommy Doyle, the boy from Halloween, and Dr. Why is his skin look perfectly fine after suffering major burns and bullet wounds? So they killed him off. His murderous tendencies are mechanical by now -- he sees, he goes after, he kills -- usually in the bloodiest manner possible.
The release date of the film is odd -- one would have expected a Halloween sequel to open a little closer to October 31 actually, it was originally scheduled for October 13, but the competition was deemed too stiff. I had no idea and I am going to have a real hard time not thinking of the Producers Cut every time I watch Halloween. I know I give a lot of shit to horror films and sequels, but this one really truly deserves all the shit I throw at it. I have to disagree a little bit… Okay, I will admit it, I have a bit of a soft spot for the Halloween series. Thorn or Thurisaz or Thurs as it was called in the norse language was the symbol of giants who waged war against men and gods. Michael died in part two. Nothing can save that movie.
I think it deserved a mention and probably a lost opportunity for a decent laugh. Still though, It would have tickled my geek glands to have had the third given at least a nod in the Myers series rather than it being the wtf storyline of the franchise. I agree with you here James, both versions of this film sucked ass. I can understand that from a franchise perspective this makes it very difficult to keep pumping them out, especially when Friday the 13th was staying largely true to the slasher type. But now I like part 6 I have accepted it for what it is and think its way better than H20.
This is the sixth movie in the series, one where some of the history of Michael Myers comes out. Besides that, all the love in the world to you James. I also enjoyed the head explosion scene. Even the unmistakable theme music sounds tinny and hollow, and is mixed with the generic strains of something credited to Alan Howarth. Haddonfield has turned into a town without a personality or soul, and even Michael doesn't seem the least bit menacing. This one makes installment five look like a veritable masterpiece.
Forgive me for ranting,but this just shows that this was a beyond lame excuse to keep the sequels going and that John Carpenter would never support such a horrible idea. But again I guess it would have ruined the whole thing about michael being a pure evil unstoppable serial killer. I have to confess i was a little interested in the thorn story line. Before Jason and Freddy, there was Michael Myers, wearing his white-painted Captain Kirk mask and stalking Jamie Lee Curtis. Meanwhile, the family that adopted Laurie Strode is living in the Myers house and are being stalked by Myers.
