"You can't kill the bogeyman," the children insist to a terrorized Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) in the original Halloween. How right they are. Laurie is gone, but guess who's back in Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers? Acting as if the third entry never existed, this installment picks up 10 years after the original, with mad maniac Myers in a coma and moved to a new facility. But wouldn't you know it that as soon as a loose-lipped orderly lets slip that Myers has a surviving niece he springs back into action, leaving a bloody trail of corpses on the road to Haddonfield. Donald Pleasance returns as Dr. Loomis, scarred and crippled from his last encounter with Myers and seething with a fanatical zeal to stop the freak from repeating his previous rampage. Pleasance is the best thing about the film as an aging hero seemingly on the verge of madness who drags a bum leg in his manic rush to save little orphan Jamie (Danielle Harris), the 10-year-old waif terrorized by her homicidal uncle. Director Dwight Little has managed a generic if professional slasher picture, rife with improbabilities and dominated by a killer whose superhuman powers reach near-mystical dimensions, but he delivers the goods: shocks, stabs, and cold, cruel killings. --Sean Axmaker
You're huntin' it, ain't ya? Yeah, you're huntin' it alright, just like me!
Dr. Samuel Loomis:
What are you hunting, Mr. Sayer?
Apocalypse, End of the World, Armageddon. It always has a face and a name. I've been huntin' the bastard for 30 years, give or take. Came real close a time or two. Too damn close! You can't kill damnation, Mister. It don't die like a man dies!
Yeah, the one you're picking up, just thinkin' about him gives me the 'willies.' A decade ago-Halloween night-he murdered sixteen people, maybe more, trying to get to his sister. Nearly got her, too. But his doctor, of all people, shot him six times, then set him on fire. Both of them nearly burned to death. Yeah, I'll be glad to see this one gone. Yes, indeed-dee!
I didn't know you and Brady had anything, okay?
You knew. You just didn't care.
He's not married. Besides, I've got a right to do what's best for me.
Don't you mean what you do best?
Wise up to what men want, Rachel... or Brady won't be the last man you lose to another woman.
I mean, you blow off our date at the last minute...
So you hop on to the next best thing? I thought you were different from other guys.
Oh, I'm different, it's just that... I just got pissed off, that's all.
Oh really? Well, I'll just let you get back to Miss Hot Panties.
