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.
Mrs. Voorhees is dead, and Camp Crystal Lake is shut down, but a camp next to the infamous place is stalked by an unknown assailant. Is it Mrs. Voorhees' son Jason, who did not really drown in the lake some 30 years before?
After being committed for 17 years, Michael Myers, now a grown man and still very dangerous, escapes from the mental institution (where he was committed as a 10 year old) and he immediately returns to Haddonfield, where he wants to find his baby sister, Laurie. Anyone who crosses his path is in mortal danger.
Three years after he last terrorized his sister, Michael Myers confronts her again, before traveling to Haddonfield to deal with the cast and crew of a reality show which is being broadcast from his old home.
In a continuation of the plot of Halloween, Michael Myers shows off his indestructability by resuming his murder spree despite being gunned down with six bullets in the original movie. Laurie Strode is once more his intended victim, with Dr. Sam Loomis again in hot persuit. Written by
The word painted on blood on the chalk board was 'Samhein". The Celtic word refers to an ancient Irish holiday at the end of Summer on October 31, the Festival of Samhein. However Dr. Loomis refers back to it as a title, being the name of a god of worship, the "Lord of the Dead". Samhein "is a Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the "darker half" of the year. Most commonly it is held on 31 October-1 November, or halfway between the autumn equinox and the winter solstice. Along with Imbolc, Beltane and Lughnasadh it makes up the four Gaelic seasonal festivals. It was observed in Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man. Kindred festivals were held at the same time of year in other Celtic lands; for example the Brythonic Calan Gaeaf (in Wales), Kalan Gwav (in Cornwall) and Kalan Goañv (in Brittany)". See more »
(2 minutes into the movie) When Laurie takes off Michael's mask in the beginning, Michael does not leave the mask off long enough so that we could see his deformed eye like we could see in the previous movie. See more »
Dr. Sam Loomis:
Did you see the blackboard back there in the elementary school?
Dr. Sam Loomis:
In order to appease the gods, the Druid priests held fire rituals. Prisoners of war, criminals, the insane, animals... were... burned alive in baskets. By observing the way they died, the Druids believed they could see omens of the future. Two thousand years later, we've come no further. Samhain isn't evil spirits. It isn't goblins, ghosts or witches. It's the unconscious mind. We're all afraid of the dark inside ourselves.

what was the point of this movie? why was it even made, honestly, how can people call this a "classic" it was fueled with killing and stalking and nothing more, the story of it could have been made up in an hour, the acting is the only reason i give it 4 *'s, i just cant find the "classic"nis of it, i cant even believe this is a sequel to the first Halloween because it doesn't even feel the same, no eariness, no ghostliness, no horror, so i ask what was the point of this movie? why was it made? why did donald pleasence and jamie lee curtis agree to make this so-called "sequel", why? and most of all why do so many people like this movie? what makes it so good? i just don't know
