This one has gotten better with repeated viewings but gawd, I hated it the first time I saw it!
I don't like the "Thorn" thing (like I said before; I generally think my psychos are scarier when I don't know why they're doing what they're doing...stop giving me explanations!)...Michael wants his family dead, that's all I need to know; I hate the lead chick in this one; Connecting it to earlier films by bringing Tommy back was a nice try, but it just didn't work for me; Aging Jamie 10 years just to kill her (though it was a cool death) didn't work for me; The end of Loomis, though unavoidable, didn't work for me...
didnt see u said that, so I'm the only one that likes the thorn idea then. just like the fact that they added something more than he kills cause he feels like it. I'm hoping pt9 brings all the parts together instead of forgettin 4-6

I dont like the thorn idea. it kills micheal being micheal. he was a crazy kid who was sick in the head. and all he thought about was killing not being controlled by a guy who is in a cult. sorry. but i guess people like different things so if you like it its ok. lol
Didnt like that they controlled Michael but that didnt last to long seeing as he killed most of the cult. on a side note the mask in pt6 is my favorite also. I know I'm one of the few that likes it better than the original

This would have been much better had Donald Pleasance (Dr. Loomis) hadn't died during filming. I think that you would see a completely different movie and obviously a different ending had he lived. I loved the story line with Jaime, just hated that she died so soon. She is my favorite character in the series.
I give this a 3.Wasnt too crazy about the Thorn idea but i could live with it.There was more brutality and gore which are always plusses in my book and the story was ok.AGAIN with another friggin kid(i dunno why this trend got big for awhile) and Tommy Doyle being an expert kinda was lame.Loomis wasnt as enjoyable as he usually is and its sad it was his last movie.Still it had a different updated flavor and I'll give them credit for trying something old with something new.

I told the others, they didn't believe me. You're all doomed. You're all doomed.
You let him drown. You never paid any attention. Look what you did to him. Look what you did to him.

This one was just ok for me. I didn't really like the whole thorn thing either. And, I didn't like that it seemed like they were cloning Micheal. And, of course, the death of Donald Pleasence makes it kinda sad.

Dr. loomis was the best if he wasnt in 45 and 6 it would of sucked no one could replace him good actor part 6 was a good movie overall I didnt like the thorn bit , it was a little weird, um i wish Dr. loomis didnt pass the ending was the worst . I give a 3
Thorn was a great addition to the storyline. it was good and interesting way to answer all the lingering questions that, if you ask me, needed to be answered by that point. Tying Michael to the ancient traditions of Halloween and Samhain was an excellent touch, in conjunction with bringing an additional threat in the form of the Thorn cult and adding more depth to expand the story and move up from the typical stalker vs. victims scenario. It's one of the biggest things that makes the Halloween series so special to me.
I think many don't like it just because of how seriously the official version of H6 dropped the ball. What could've been a truly great turn in the series (as we saw in the P-Cut) was irrevocably f*cked up by the absolute mess of a plot we were presented with in the final version of the film. It just wasn't handled the way it should've been. I think most people's problems with it can't be blamed on the concept itself...it was just a victim of circumstance.
I never liked the "he's evil because he's evil and we don't need to develop him because he's scarier withou it" view of him. I never understood why people hated the Thorn storyline. Sure, it wasn't handled properly, thanks to Joe "Total Fuckhead" Chappelle...but some seem to simply hate it because it's "supernatural." Well...think about it. Michael Myers seemingly can't die...isn't that, in and of itself, supernatural? There has to be some kind of supernatural explanation as to why Michael can't die. People say "It's because he's just pure evil." Well...isn't pure evil supernatural? Obviously, if it can keep Michael alive after all he's gone through, it is. Thorn didn't introduce the supernatural elements...they've pretty much always been there (or at least ever since Michael took two bullets to the head in H2 without losing consciousness). We've always conceded that Michael was evil...Thorn just gave that evil a name. What's the big deal?
