Halloween 5 The Revenge of Michael Myers, directed by Dominique OtheninGirard and produced by Ramsey Thomas was released on October 13, 1989 and had a tagline—Michael Lives and This Time They’re Ready! This is a sequel to Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers and followed by Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers. This movie though liked by the people could not do much well business for the producers.
Halloween 5: The Revenge of the Michael Myers proved to be the worst box office performer in the Halloween series till date.
The beginning of the film shows Michael Myers into a mine shaft and being shot at, as at the end of Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, but Michael climbs into the river, where a Hermit keeps him healthy. Michael reawakens about a year later, kills the hermit and returns to Haddonfield to horrify and terrorize everyone. Here, his long-lost niece, Jamie Lloyd lives.Jamie has nearly lost her ability to speak since attacking her foster mother, however, has developed a telepathic link with her evil uncle. Dr. Sam Loomis realizes that this link exists, and plans to use it to put an end to Michael Myers with her help.
Halloween 5: The revenge of Michael Myers, failed to impress people because of some loopholes and ambiguities in the plot structure of the movie. Michael Myers is seen twice in the movie without mask—in the hermit's cabin, while the hermit is in the foreground, Michael can be seen in the background for a second without his mask; and in the scene where Jamie is in the attic—it is a lot darker, but some of Myers' facial features can be made out. This scene takes place towards the end of the movie.
