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.

An absolute mess...Producers Cut is way to go
2 April 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I had the fortunate experience of watching the Producer Cut of this movie before I saw the 'official' version and may I say i'm glad I did otherwise I might have been too shocked and hesitant to watch another version. The official version is an absolute mess to say the least, it has deleted and shortened SO many scenes that were crucial to the story and simply replaced it with blood and guts with no real explanation besides a small scene with Tommy Doyle talking about 'Thorn' and its history. Overall, this version of the movie was simply re-made for mindless idiots who only view a movie for possible breast exposure or violent madness. The final nail in the coffin is the editing and and scene skips. Watching this you can plainly see that it was an ATTEMPT to re-do half of a movie with frequent black outs to scenes where people have magically appeared and scenery changes with no explanation to why those people are either there or what happened between the skips. These fade in/fade outs in the movie left me feeling weird and irritable about the lack of story telling and ability to draw in the audience. I ask all who read this and agree with me about 'this' version to not give up hope, check out the producers cut and see the dramatic changes and superior story that will leave you satisfied and not confused over what you just saw.

It's your game now, Doctor Loomis!(sinister laugh)
