    Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers

    ★★

    HALLOWEEN 4: THE RETURN OF MICHAEL MYERS is a rather forgettable entry in the franchise. But I guess I could honestly say that about most of them, with the exception of the first one.

The production design is extraordinary, especially as little changes are made throughout the film. The acting is phenomenal. I think an Oscar nom for Hopkins is a sure bet and wouldn’t be surprised even a little bit if he took the prize home. Olivia…
