???I have to admit I love this installment. The intro to the film was dark and creepy. The feel of the nice safe cuddly town, all of a sudden being without power, a mandatory curfew, just beiing throw in to utter chaos. Due to one man!!!!! The entire police force being wiped out. Basically being backed into a corner with little means of defense just made this one evry bit as creepy as the first 2. I give it a four because their was one thing missing. To me the lack of the original score took something away for me. But that is my own opinion, I feel a score can make a movie. Dont know if that makes sence?

I watched a few of the Halloweens yesterday and Return was one of em.. Personally after watching Part 2 i thought it was a lot better. I lost interest in Part 2 halfway through but Return i can watch over and over!
Excellent remake of the first two. Michael appeared to be reaching Ted White levels of rage during his attacks against the couple in the house, the lynch mob, and the EMTs. I have to admit that the preacher's references to Armagedon seemed to suggest that this was supposed to be the end of Michael Myers, yet somehow Thron infects him during an unspecified time in his life. And, I guess we are all in agreement about the twist ending which drives Loomis into near-pscyhosis.
This is the point where the Halloween sequels really started becoming Friday the 13th sequels in disguise. I enjoy this film on an entertainment level. It has some scary scenes like Jamie's dream. I must give it a 3 though. I mean, Halloween III was very creative and told a very good story and was scary, while this film went back to the basic "same old shit" formula that basically all the horror movies did in the 1980s.

Exactly. It's like people who say the first few Friday the 13ths were just the same movie shot over and over again...a killer murdering a bunch of horny teenagers. But that's exactly what the fans wanted! Just look at how the series went to hell when they tried to change things.
