    Dr. Samuel Loomis (Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers)

    13914-7923.jpg

    Dr. Samuel Loomis is one of the two main protagonists of the Halloween franchise and a confident psychiatrist. He is also the archenemy to the series' central character and main antagonist, Michael Myers.

    However, he was sadly flanderized when Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers was released in 1989.

    Why He Sucks

    NOTE: This will only focus on the Halloween 5 version of him.

    1. He went from being a selfless, optimistic and confident character who is willing to sacrifice his own life to protect innocent people from Michael Myers into a short-tempered, arrogant and unlikable jerk.
    2. He lashes out at Jamie Lloyd and terrorizes her for information.
      • Just to rub salt into the wound, he even uses her as bait for Michael Myers.
    3. He serves little to no purpose in Halloween 5 until the climax of the movie.
    4. Even the late Donald Pleasence admitted that he was completely out of character.
    5. He went as far as holding a police officer at gun point.
    6. He collapses from a heart attack near the end of the movie.

    Redeeming Qualities

    1. Donald Pleasence still gives an outstanding performance with what little he was given.
    2. Dr. Loomis is a likable protagonist in Halloween 1, 2 and 4 and he also becomes likable again in Halloween 6.
    3. His quote, "I prayed that he would burn in Hell." "But in my heart, I knew that Hell would not have him." is a fantastic line.
