I love this film. It's unfairly maligned for not having Michael Myers, but it really was just the victim of poor marketing. I wish there had been an anthology of Halloween tales released every year, as was their original plan. They should have touted it as something like "The Halloween Chronicles", and retroactively made the Myers entries part of the series. The general public figured it was the third entry in the Michael Myers saga, and you really can't blame them for such a misconception.
I also like this movie. It is now a cult classic. I remember seeing it in the theater on Halloween night. But too bad this bombed at the box office, but I remember reading if this movie was a hit, the 4th movie was going to be about ghosts. I would have loved to see that.
