Fourth entry in the Halloween horror series is a no-frills, workmanlike picture [story by Dhani Lipsius, Larry Rattner, Benjamin Ruffner and Alan B. McElroy].

Designed as a direct sequel to John Carpenter’s 1978 hit, with no reference to the events chronicled in parts 2 and 3, pic resurrects monster Michael Myers (previously referred to mainly as The Shape), who escapes from a hospital to return home and wreak havoc, with the vague notion of getting to his niece Jamie (Danielle Harris).

His face scarred from an earliier altercation with the monster, Donald Pleasence reprises his role as Dr Loomis, now hell-bent on destroying the obviously unkillable Myers.
