Thanks for the review. I hope someone has the old & new release to compare before I buy.

I was pretty upset by
Rachel's quick death
in this one too. Great review, by the way. I'm still on the fence about upgrading for this one and part 4.

Since I am a fan of both this one and part 4, I will probably pick both of them up. It is interesting to see someone who prefers part 5 though. I did like both of them, and I will admit that part 5 did have some more memorable sequences in it. That said, I also was very upset
that Rachel was killed off so quickly.

This is my least favorite film in the series. Worst script, worst direction, etc. Halloween 4 is incredibly superior to it.

I agree completely. Halloween 5 is absolutely terrible compared to Halloween 4. And put me down as another Rachel/Ellie Cornell fan who was severely upset by the treatment of her character in this movie. John

I could accept Rachel's treatment if she hadn't been replaced by Tina. That's slapping you in the face, pulling out a knife and slicing your chest, and dumping an entire quart of salt in the wound.
