Cult of Thorn

Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers has no reason to exist. It was 6 years since Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers. A movie that by all accounts should have been enough to kill the franchise. Turns out there’s still more they wanted to do with Michael Myers. Jamie is now older and gives birth to Michael’s grandnephew. Which means he has to go after the poor thing.

The new protagonist is actually Tommy Doyle, the boy Laurie Strode babysat in the first Halloween. It’s a clever connection and he’s even played by a before he was famous Paul Rudd. It’s just not enough to keep this entry from being both unnecessary, incoherent, and filled with more disposable teens being killed. Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers attempts to answer the question of why Michael Myers can’t seem to die. One that makes as much sense as Dr. Loomis still being alive after having a massive stroke.

Apparently some mystical symbol and a vague cult ritual are responsible for Michael’s unkillable nature. The Cult of Thorn is made up of past characters that you’re not gonna recognize unless you’re some kind of obsessed fan. Tommy teams up with Lourie’s cousin Kara to stop Michael and the cult. SPOILER ALERT! They don’t even tell you if Michael Myers or Dr. Loomis survive in the end. Leaving this timeline ambiguous. At least itโ€™s notable for being Donald Pleasance final appearance in the franchise before his death. Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers is a mess that desperately needed to be cleaned up.
