It isn't the same movie really. Halloween 4 is the closest sequel to the original. It did not have a whole lot of blood, and it did have a whole lot of suspense. Michael looked great. The atmosphere and fog in the streets was absolutely brilliant. Loomis was great. The characters were very realistic.
I think Halloween 5 falls flat in comparison to Halloween 4, but that doesn't make it a bad film. Halloween 4 is just one of those rare sequels that raises the bar too high. I see it as the "Terminator 2" or "Aliens" of the Halloween franchise.
Yeah, that makes sense. I like 4 better too. I see the fist two the same way though. Halloween is my horror movie and I thought part 2 was a letdown. (And I think they're basically the same movie too...different mood though and all.)
