R | | Horror, Thriller
Six years after Michael Myers last terrorized Haddonfield, he returns there in pursuit of his niece, Jamie Lloyd, who has escaped with her newborn child, for which Michael and a mysterious cult have sinister plans.
Daniel Farrands wanted Christopher Lee to play Dr. Terence Wynn in the film but it never happened, the same situation happened when John Carpenter offered Lee the Dr. Loomis role in Halloween (1978),9. The producers didn't agree, "they felt this guy, the villain from Lethal Weapon would be a better choice," says Farrands. "I still disagree."
Oh god Michael, please don't hurt me.
In the Theatrical version, before Michael starts the doctor massacre, he hears the sound of Tommy and Kara fleeing into another room. He stops, and turns around to investigate the sound but doesn't find anything. As he turns to walk the other way, they show his reflection in mirrors on the wall, and if you look, you'll see a crew member in the mirror just before the mirror is out of frame.
The film is dedicated in memory of Donald Pleasence.
The "strobe light/operating room" scene (only seen in the Theatrical version) was originally going to be longer, and feature more blood and gore. Examples include a shot of a nurse being gutted and Dr. Wynn being beheaded. Wynn's death was cut out of the film, so that his character could return in future films.
