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.
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.
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.
Tommy Jarvis goes to the graveyard to get rid of Jason Voorhees' body once and for all, but inadvertently brings him back to life instead. The newly revived killer once again seeks revenge, and Tommy may be the only one who can defeat him.
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?
It's October 30, 1988 and Michael Myers has been in a coma since his pursuit of Laurie Strode, 10 years ago, was finally stopped (events of H1 and H2). However when he is transfered from Richmond Mental Institute to Smith's Grove he awakes when he hears that he has a niece in Haddonfield and after killing the transfer crew he escapes. In Haddonfield, the niece, Jamie, has been adopted by the Carruthers family but keeps having nightmares about Michael (but she doesn't know who he is). On Halloween night, Jamie goes out trick and treating, little knowing that her murdering Uncle is following her and her step-sister Rachel. Rushing to her aid is Dr. Loomis and with the help of Sheriff Meeker starts to search the town for Michael and to find Jamie to protect her. But can anything stop Michael this time? Written by

Ten years ago, on the night of October 31st, a small Midwestern town fell victim to an escaped killer. Under the cover of darkness, he carried out the most horrifying mass murder on record. Sixteen people, in cold blood! Ever since that night, no one has forgotten his name... and Halloween has never been the same. Now, Michael Myers has come home. He has returned for one more night of unholy TERROR! See more »
(19 minutes into the movie) Dr. Loomis goes to the gas station and then a red truck can be seen in the garage, but in the next shot the truck is not able to be seen. Then when he walks into the garage, the car is able to be seen again. See more »

I mean, you blow off our date at the last minute...
So you hop on to the next best thing? I thought you were different from other guys.
Oh, I'm different, it's just, it's just that... I just, I just got pissed off, that's all.
Oh really? Well, I'll just let you get back to little Miss Hot Panties.

You heard it right. I think this is much better than the others.
Why? Because of alot of things. First, let's go with the story. One of the reasons why this movie gets no good reviews is because of the story where Michael and Dr. Sam Loomis was burned. To put a rest to all of that, I'll give you the scoop. Originally, the beginning of this movie would have the burning hospital with Loomis coming out. The Fire department tries to put the fire out but Loomis would of said "No! Let him burn!". Unfortunatlly, it cost too much money to re-do that scene so it was dropped, thus hopefully ending all of the confusion.
Now what was I saying? Oh yes, now, Michael is back. And as usual, he isn't taking any prisoners. Now, Laurie died in a car accident, so her daughter Jaimie (Probably an inside joke to Jaimie Lee Curtis) has to be taken care of by another family. Meanwhile, the mental instituion is about to take Michael away (With an EXCELLENT cameo by Raymond O' Connor, who makes alot of great quotes. Including one where you hear a mental guy screaming with the person picking Michael up saying "Jesus!" to which Raymond says "Jesus ain't got nothing to do with this place".). In the ambulance, Michael murders both the people picking him up, and the driver. Nice death in which he drives his thumb through a guys mouth and rams it again the wall repeatedly.
Now, Dr. Loomis and Michael both meet up, and alot of deaths later, Micheal is once again gone, for now...
I don't see why this movie doesen't get good reviews, the person in the Michael mask did an exceptional job here. As did the actors, with another great performance by Donald Pleasence. Honestly, I found this MUCH better than my original favorite sequel: Halloween 2. While 5, 6, 7, and 8 were mediocore films, this one comes out on top as the best of the sequels.
Thumbs up, recommended,
RATING ***1/2 out of ****
