Storyline

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. And it's up to Tommy Doyle, the boy from Halloween, and Dr. Loomis, to stop them all. Written by Jason Mechalek

Trivia

During production of Halloween 6, distributor Dimension Films were in encountering budget issues with the pre-production on their other upcoming horror sequel Hellraiser: Bloodline and reportedly slashed $1 million dollars from Halloween 6's budget to accommodate the loss. See more »

Goofs

During the flashback scene at the beginning of the film when Jamie is being taken by the man in black away from the police station, she is forced into a mid 1990's model Ford conversion van. Since the scene took place in 1989, this model wouldn't have existed, as the Ford vans that were built during the 1980s had rectangular-shaped grilles instead of the trapezoidal-shaped one that was shown. (Producer's Cut). See more »

A God-Awful Mess.
12 September 2013 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Part VI takes place six years after the fifth film ends, with a young woman(said to be Jamie Lloyd, but played by a different actress) escaping the mysterious cult that held her prisoner, along with her baby, with Michael Myers once again in murderous, relentless pursuit. She leaves the baby behind in a bus depot for safety, only to be brutally dispatched by Michael... However, a now grown Tommy Doyle(one of the kids that Laurie Strode babysat from the original) tracks down Doctor Loomis(played for the last time by a sickly Donald Pleasance) to take the baby themselves, leading to a showdown where many shocking revelations will be uncovered...

Though well intended by writer Daniel Farrands as a satisfying finale to the series, this entry proved to be an unmitigated disaster, sabotaged by atrocious & shameful rewriting, editing and directing, rendering the film a crass, incoherent mess. Sad to say, Donald Pleasance's last film(he died before it was released).
