One year after the events of Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (1988), the Shape returns to Haddonfield once again in an attempt to kill his now-mute niece.
The handgun that Dr. Loomis uses, is a M1911A1.
Michael, it will destroy you, too. One day, Michael, this rage which drives you... You think if you kill them all it will go away. It won't. You have to fight it in the place where it's strongest.
Loomis: Where it all began! If you want to get rid of this ...
As with the previous film, Sheriff Meeker and his men are shown working at the Haddonfield Police Department rather than the (Warren) County Sheriff's Department, which are two separate law enforcement agencies. The station itself, patrol cars and uniforms all incorrectly refer to "police" rather than sheriff. While in reality the town could have both, it is clearly established in the film (and those before it) that Meeker is in sole charge and thus there should only be a sheriff's department.
The German theatrical version was cut to get a "16" rating. On video, two versions were released, the "16"-one for sell-thru and an uncut "18"-rated version for the rental release.
