Film #57: Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (1988)

Plot - Mike Myers is back, and he's killing people again. Thankfully, Donald Pleasence is back to spread a very end-of-days string of psychology to prepare everyone. It's quite suspenseful, and somehow gets me excited to see Michael Myers break out and return.

Form - Not a whole lot of cool.

F/X - There's one gory shot where Mike Myers tears a guys neck to pieces. The end.

Acting - Donald Pleasence is great, and considering he's on screen forty percent of the film, we've got a winner.

Mise en scene - Not really.

Quotables - There's a really good discussion between a hitchhiking Pleasence and a doomsday preacher.

Cool stuff - The build-up to the kills is frequently great, although the pay-off is always going to be some crappy cutaway kill.
