EVERYONE KNOWS THE NAME. NOW, EVERYONE WILL KNOW THE TRUTH.
Michael Myers is on the hunt for his niece and her newborn baby; dr. Loomis (Donald Pleasence) is convinced to come out of retirement. The sixth movie in the series has a subplot about a Druid-like cult, inspired by unexplained nonsense in the fifth entry. The story is a mess and Myers’s killing spree is not enough to save it. Pleasence looks tired in his last role; interesting to see Paul Rudd in his second movie, but his tormented character is not easily relatable.
1995-U.S. 88 min. Color. Directed by Joe Chappelle. Cast: Donald Pleasance (Sam Loomis), Paul Rudd (Tommy Doyle), Marianne Hagan (Kara Strode), Mitchell Ryan, Kim Darby, Bradford English.
Trivia: Also released in a ”producer’s cut” that changes many scenes, parts of the story, the music and the ending. Followed by Halloween H20: 20 Years Later (1998).
