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.
Only Halloween in the entire series to be filmed in the fall.
Oh god Michael, please don't hurt me.
(at around 6 mins) The text of the newspaper cuttings on Tommy's wall do not relate to the events of the original Halloween. While the headlines refer to Michael's killings, the body of the articles discuss, amongst other subjects, an international conference and political difficulties for a city mayor.
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.
