Don Shanks was also injured when he was filming the scene where the shape crashes Mike's Camaro into the tree, Dominique Othenin-Girard forgot to yell "Cut!" And fire was beginning to emerge from the car (Shanks puts this down to Othenin-Girard being sidetracked by seeing stunts take place during his first major directing job) finally stunt coordinator Don Pike told Othenin-Girard to yell "Cut!".

(at around 44 mins) When the cop at the pageant radios Meeker, he refers to him as "Sergeant Meeker", when in fact Meeker is the sheriff. See more »
Supprisingly better than the fourth, Halloween 5: The revenge of Michael Myers kicks of to a good start.
Michael Myers miraculously crawls out of the mine entrance where he was presumed dead. Jamie is recovering from the trauma of killing her foster mum and having some connection with Michaels grisly work. Of course Halloween wouldn't be Halloween without the return of our old friend Dr Loomis...
The first 20 minutes of this film is rather slow and boring, its like watching the fourth film all over again. Finally it gets into a good story, unfortunately it drags on towards the end...
The most annoying thing too is that this film was followed by the sixth instalment, you would of thought after all this time Michael would give it a rest. I guess he really is pure evil...
