Halloween Retrospective #5: Halloween 5 (1989)

2018-vintage Howard, Dan and special guest Spider-Dan continue their retrospective of the Halloween franchise with a look at director Dominique Othenin-Girard’s quickly-churned-out, not-too-highly-regarded Halloween 5 (not Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers, despite what the video cover above may say).  But is there more to it than meets the eye? Note: at one point Dan describes the film as being released in 1999. That’s an erroneous slip of the tongue. It was actually 1989.

Elsewhere, Kirsty, Stella and 2020-vintage Dan are present to discuss horror news and give their recommendations for the week.
