Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers (1995) – IMDb
Directed by Joe Chappelle. With Donald Pleasence, Paul Rudd, Marianne Hagan, Mitchell Ryan. Six years after Michael Myers last terrorized Haddonfield, he returns there in pursuit of his niece, Jamie Lloyd, who has escaped with her newborn child, for which Michael and a mysterious cult have sinister plans.
Paul Rudd’s first film? Ok, I didn’t see that coming, but I guess horror films are a good place for quality actors to get started, after all, Leonardo Dicaprio’s first role was in a Critters sequel.
They go hard on an occult aspect in this, the sixth film of the franchise, and only just barely have the suspense and terror that I loved so much in the previous film. I can see that they’re trying to balance action, adventures, suspense, and horror, but I’m not entirely sure this is the mix that I’m personally looking for.
