Six years after Michael Myers’ last massacre in Haddonfield, Jamie Lloyd has a child, but is then killed by Michael. Michael is allied with the Cult of Thorn, who both protect him and gave him the Curse of Thorn, the reason he killed all of his family. The Strode Family also moved into the Myers’ house and are stalked by Michael. Sam Loomis and Tommy Doyle, a boy Laurie babysat during Michael’s first rampage, are now out to stop Michael and the cult. Michael heads to kill Jamie’s son and the rest of Laurie’s family, but Dr. Loomis and Tommy plan to stop the curse, defeat the cult, stop Michael, and put an end to his murderous rampages, once and for all.
Let’s be honest: this movie should never have been made… and I thought the fifth one was bad… well this one was definitely worse. This doesn’t even have anything to do with Michael Myers anymore (how many times can you kill him only to have him resurrect again, same goes for Dr. Loomis, btw.)
Paul Rudd’s movie debut and he chose this? Who would have expected that guy to become one of Marvel’s big (well, sometimes big, sometimes small) heroes? But I admit, he was the only good thing about this movie!
There’s so much I can say of this thing, but none of it is good so I’ll remain silent and will keep it at: it stinks! (Example on how silly it can become: Michael pushes a man against a steel barred fence, hitting his head and then finally pushing the head through the bars, making the fence collapse… and suddenly Michael steps over the fence but no body of an orderly is seen anymore)
Lucky for me, one of the best Halloween instalments is next: H2O 👍 (yaay, Jamie Lee!)
