Necropolis Macabre Presents: The Halloween Retrospective Part 6

Halloween6P

Well, here we go again.  After giving myself a little break after suffering through the atrocity that was Halloween 5, I’m back at it to continue the path I set for myself.  Halloween 6 was released in 1995, and takes place six years after the events of Part 5.  Directing this time was done by Joe Chappelle, who later went on to direct in a number of TV shows, including Fringe and CSI NY and Miami.  Does Chappelle have what it takes to put the series back on track?

Necropolis Macabre Presents: The Halloween Retrospective Part 5

Hello again.  Last time we got Michael Myers offing quite a large number of people, yet somehow was unable to kill a ten-year old kid.  Since Halloween 4  did make a profit, logically another one had to be made.  With the number of flaws Part 4 had, and director Dominique Othenin-Girard running things, the series can only go up from here, can’t it?  Well let’s get right into Halloween 5, and see what direction it did take.

Necropolis Macabre Presents: The Halloween Retrospective Part 4

Well, the people cried out for it, and they were heard.  Halloween 4 meant the triumphant return of Michael Myers.  And his return was well-timed too, as Halloween 4 was released ten years after the first Halloween.  It has been a while since I’ve seen the movie I’ll be discussing today, so we’ll see how it holds up in my eyes after all this time.

Necropolis Macabre Presents: The Halloween Retrospective Part 3

So, Michael Myers has apparently died.  Where do we go from here?  Well, Halloween 3 answers that question for you.  The Halloween series was originally planned as an anthology series, in which the movie I’m about to review is just part of the plan.  However, it’s gotten a lot of hate over the years due to not sticking to the first two movies.  But is it really such a bad movie?  Well, I’ll just go right ahead and let you know what I think of it.

Necropolis Macabre Presents: The Halloween Retrospective Part 2

Well, here we are again.  Back when I was growing up on horror, the concept of watching horror series in order didn’t seem to be such an important detail.  I was just a kid who wanted to watch horror movies, period.  Halloween 2 wasn’t a movie I watched right away.  In fact, I’m pretty sure I watched part 4, part 5, and part 3 in that order before I even got around to watching part 2.  And it’s only been in the last year that I’ve actually gotten around to watching Halloween 2 again.  Being that I barely remembered what happened in it, it was almost like watching it again for the first time.  And today I’m going to review it with a (slightly) more mature mind and let you know what I think about it.
