When it comes to horror and suspense/slasher thriller movies nobody will ever forget The Halloween series. The scene of the 1st time they saw Dr. Sam Loomis played by Donald Pleasence aims and shoot Michael Myers 6 times and watch him fall off a high balcony, only to vanish into thin air and to the some chilling theme music, at the finale to John Carpenter's near perfect, genre defining s nice classic, Halloween -1978.
3 years later the movie returned to the night he came home, this time under the new direction of Rick Rosenthal, and are plunged back into the mind bugling nightmare. Without a moments resistance and hesitation, the movie continues as it follow Michael disappear into the darkness, to Dr. Loomis's cries of I shot him 6 times.
Donald Pleasence re-prises and reinvent his role as Dr. Sam Loomis with some macabre delight, as the only 1 who truly understands. The evil as he so often refers to and named as Michael as, terrified and unafraid simultaneously, electing and trying to stop him from getting to the character Laurie.
Jamie Lee Curtis have had all the acting drained out of her, as she ambles in the hospital, screaming and not doing anything else. The role of Laurie isn't as well rounded and complex as we had in the original, but many really felt that Jamie Lee Curtis could have done much more with it.
Although the movie has the same characteristics and traits as the original, it's very dark and very sinister, Michael is as extremely ruthlessly brutal as ever, and the music is still as threatening and menacing as before, but it doesn't get and capture the same feel the original had.
For a very start, a stunt man was requested and used to portray Michael, which is actually very noticeable, as Michael doesn't act at all, but simple doesn't exactly what is required and gives no more. And, the big clincher is the fact John Carpenter wasn't in the directors chair, but always saying all that, I feel Rick Rosenthal could have done much more or a lot worse a follow up to such an incredible movies as Halloween.
