Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers (1995)

Director: Joe Chappelle

Stars: Donald Pleasence, Paul Rudd, Marianne Hagan, Mitchell Ryan

Jamie was kidnapped by a bunch of evil druids who protect Michael Myers. Six years later, Jamie has escaped after giving birth to Michael's child. She runs to Haddonfield to get Dr. Loomis to help her again. The family that adopted Laurie Strode is living in the Myers house and are being stalked by Myers. It's the curse of Thorn that Michael is possessed by that makes him kill his family. And it's up to Tommy Doyle, the boy from Halloween, and Dr. Loomis, to stop them all.

First of all, the character of the Dad in this movie was an ass. Who in the hell acts or treats their children that way? Oh wait, I got it, an ass. If I was Kara, I would have killed him right after he slapped me, or let my weird son stab him in that nasty fat gut. The rest of the family would have been so pleased that they might have gone on a vacation and not been hunted down by Michael Myers. It is just a thought.

For this movie with all of the no know editing and tons of removal from the it, we know why this movie is so out there with the story line. There are mentions of a cult in the second one, but it very brief. It makes the story at least more interesting, but the creation for the story was just not there. They had a good thing going with the story, but they needed the nude scenes and the sex included instead of balancing out the story. I loved the fact that they brought back Tommy from the first one and had him all grown up and crazy. That was a really nice touch. Now, don't get me wrong. I did like the movie for what it was. It is not the worst or the best in the series.

Donald Pleasence passed away before the movie came out, which was one of the saddest parts of the movie, and a good reason to go to the movies to watch his last movie. This movie introduced us to the now famous and funny Paul Rudd. The rest of the cast was good.

This is really the last of the Halloween movies. The last two started a whole new story line that kept Laurie alive. This was a decent way of ending the series, but they just could not leave well enough alone. I would still watch this one, if it came on. Enjoy.
