HE’S BACK WITH A VENGEANCE.
One year after escaping from the police, Michael Myers has been nursed back to health and tries one more time to find his niece (Danielle Harris)… A direct sequel to the fourth chapter, ignoring its cliffhanger and instead focusing on a telepathic bond between uncle Michael and his niece. This one might as well have been called Friday the 13th 5, because the franchises are becoming hard to separate; same kind of look, same kind of teenage victims.
1989-U.S. 96 min. Color. Directed by Dominique Othenin-Girard. Cast: Donald Pleasence (Sam Loomis), Danielle Harris (Jamie Lloyd), Don Shanks (Michael Myers), Wendy Kaplan, Ellie Cornell, Jeffrey Landman.
Trivia: Alternative title: Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers. Followed by Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers (1995).
