Six years ago, Michael Myers terrorized the town of Haddonfield, Illinois. He and his niece, Jamie Lloyd, have disappeared. Jamie was kidnapped by a bunch of evil druids who protect Michael Myers. And now, six years later, Jamie has escaped after giving birth to Michael's child. She runs to Haddonfield to get Dr. Loomis to help her again. Meanwhile, the family that adopted Laurie Strode is living in the Myers house and are being stalked by Myers. It's the curse of Thorn that Michael is possessed by that makes him kill his family.

Goofs

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. See more »

Somewhat underrated.
6 October 1999 | by See all my reviews

This movie has its share of flaws: heavy doses of graphic gore, that almost degrade a series which began with a gore-less film, and moments that simply don't make sense - why does Myers kill his "collaborators" at the end? Still, I found the attempts to explain his origin mostly fascinating. It's the easiest, the laziest and the greediest thing to present a killer without a motive and to keep bringing him back for more sequels even though he should be dead. Why do people say that this series never contained supernatural elements? When Myers is shot six times in "Halloween" and nevertheless lives, was that "natural"? Script and direction were a bit muddled, but not TOO muddled: I've never seen "Halloween 5", yet the plot made sense to me, even if some details didn't. The classic music score has been unfortunately altered, but as a whole this sixth entry seems to be somewhat underrated - "Halloween II" is much more boring. Fair acting, too.
