Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers

 (1988)

Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers Blu-ray features mediocre video and audio in this mediocre Blu-ray release

A decade ago, he butchered 16 people trying to get to his sister. He was shot and incinerated, but still the entity that Dr. Sam Loomis calls "Evil on two legs" would not die. This time, Michael returns to Haddonfield for Jamie Lloyd the orphaned daughter of Laurie Strode and her babysitter Rachel. Can Loomis stop Michael before the unholy slaughter reaches his innocent young niece?

Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

Halloween 4 doesn't scare up a very appealing transfer. This is perhaps the epitome of the serviceable Blu-ray release for an aging catalogue title. It enjoys a general boost in stability and resolution but ultimately doesn't fare a whole lot better than a good DVD presentation. The image is somewhat flat and drab, with only basic details to be enjoyed. A handful of scattered daytime exteriors fare best, for instance a scene where Loomis examines a crashed ambulance and, later, an overhead angle shot of the town where good textures such as pavement and brick work are revealed to satisfaction. The bulk of the movie occurs in rather dark environments where details are flat and uninspired. Faces never offer more than general complexity and often look rather pasty and unnatural. A light layer of grain is visible throughout, and it spikes at times, but doesn't accentuate all that many objects. Colors are equally drab under the darkness, but those brighter scenes offer fair, yet hardly vibrant, shades. There are some scattered pops and scratches to be seen. Additionally, black levels occasionally look a bit washed out and flesh tones waver from natural to noticeably pink. This isn't an insulting image, but it's somewhat disappointing and on the lower end of the catalogue release scale.


Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

Halloween 4 debuts on Blu-ray with an unremarkable Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless soundtrack. Nothing about the track truly impresses; the closest thing to a quality element comes in the series' famed theme music. It offers good, positive spacing, fairly crisp highs, and a decent low end accompaniment. Otherwise, this one's sort of just "blah." There's almost no real energy to any sound effect. Blowing wind and a haunting underlay at film's open help to nicely set the mood, but there's a noticeable absence of vitality, clarity, and spacing. The moving ambulance early on passes through the soundstage with minimal presence only. There are a few good effects at the sanitarium -- screams and moans and the like drift into the backs for a somewhat enjoyable and immersive moment -- but it's an exception rather than the rule. Gunshots are wimpy and absolutely lack punch, whether Loomis' handgun or, later in the movie, a shotgun blast inside a house and later still a barrage of fire near the end of the movie. Dialogue is consistently stable and focused up the middle; there's only really one or two very brief stretches when Jamie's voice sounds a bit scratchy and detached from the rest of the proceedings. Overall, this is a bland, forgettable soundtrack that probably won't find much favor amongst audiophiles or even causal audiences.
