YMMV / Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers

  • Narm: Dr. Loomis' cries of "No!" when he sees Jamie at the ending is hilarious to some people.
    • The original trailer does a nice job of building up the hype for this film - except for one shot of Michael clinging to the roof of a swerving pick-up truck; the sound effect is straight out of a Hanna-Barbera cartoon.
  • Replacement Scrappy: Subverted. Viewers were rather fond of Jamie due to Danielle Harris's performance and because of how easy it is to feel sorry for her.
  • Signature Scene: The rooftop chase.
  • So Okay, It's Average: After the deviative Season of the Witch, The Return was made to closely resemble the first two movies and avoid changing the formula tooooo much, though it did feature a couple switches (child protagonist, the twist ending)
  • Surprisingly Improved Sequel: For those who didn't like Season of the Witch, The Return was a welcome return to form.
  • The Woobie: Poor Jamie Lloyd.
