One of the most depressing sequels to Halloween, and featuring underdeveloped characters that are hard to care for, The Curse of Michael Myers feels the need to complexify and provide backstory about his villain. The movie starts bleakly and remains so until the final scene, so the tension never really drops.
The film is not only dark in tone but in photography as well. The cinematography is more polished than it ever was. The same cannot be said about the script, although it tries hard to tie this with the previous films. Michael Myers's family is at the center of it, for anyone who cared, and returning characters are introduced but recast.
The shots are annoyingly framed. Every shot feels like a close-up. Expect a fine polish, though, a new bad-ass rendition of the Shape, a lot of what you want, but then a lot of what you don't. Be warned that nobody smiles in this. Even the only returning actor, Donald Pleasence, is painfully delivering his lines. That said, he acts as lubricant and as quality stamp in regard to continuity.
