Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers (1989)

Set one year after the events of Halloween 4 (1988), Michael Myers returns to Haddonsfield once again to try and kill his young niece.

This was shot back-to-back with the previous film, but the only link with John Carpenter’s brilliant 1978 original is Donald Pleasence as the killer’s psychiatrist Dr Sam Loomis, named after a character in Psycho (1960).

Otherwise, it’s business as usual as nasty uncle Michael systematically works his way through the town’s unfortunate population – slashing by numbers all the way –  in his search for the terrified Harris.
