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.
On Halloween in 1963, Michael Myers murdered his sister, Judith. In 1978, he broke out to kill his other sister, Laurie Strode. He killed all of her friends, but she escaped. A few years later, she faked her death so he couldn't find her. But now, in 1998, Michael has returned and found all the papers he needs to find her. He tracks her down to a private school where she has gone under a new name with her son, John. And now, Laurie must do what she should have done a long time ago and finally decided to hunt down the evil one last time. Written by
The reports that Kevin Williamson's original treatment for "H20" included a scene in which "Halloween 4" through "6" are acknowledged as being "in continuity" and "canon" are completely accurate. The scene did exist, and involved a bitchy student at Keri/Laurie's school giving a class report on the "Haddonfield Murders", and going into great detail about Jamie Lloyd, Danielle Harris and JC Brandy's character from "Halloween 4" through "6". The student talks about Jamie losing her parents in an auto accident, as was the explanation in those sequels for Laurie Strode's absence. (In fact, the only reason for Laurie to be in the Witness Protection Program with her son under an assumed name as "Keri Tate" at all was because the original story for "H20" was conceived like this, with "Halloween 4" through "6" in continuity, and Williamson thus being required to create an explanation for Laurie's "death" in the previous movies and her subsequent resurrection.) The student's report chronicles Jamie's being hunted and eventually killed by her brother, Michael Myers. Upon hearing this oral presentation in the classroom, a grief-stricken Keri/Laurie then retreats to a restroom and throws up. This scene was of course omitted from the actual film. See more »

[During the opening credits, Dr. Sam Loomis can be heard saying a line from the original "Halloween"]
Dr. Samuel 'Sam' Loomis:
I met him fifteen years ago. I was told there was nothing left. No reason, no conscience, no understanding, even the most rudimentary sense of life or death, good or evil, right or wrong. I met this six-year-old child, with this blank, pale, emotionless face and the blackest eyes... the devil's eyes. I spent eight years trying to reach him, and then another seven trying to keep him locked up ...

I reluctantly decided to take a look at the only Halloween Sequel besides 2 that a majority of fans seem to enjoy. I however cannot suspend my disbelief at a few things.
1. Michael was shot in the eyes at the end of Halloween 2 and blinded him - If they want me to suspend that he can survive burning then... That would seem as much for a horror film but this is almost inexcusable.
2. Sam Loomis lives (It's mentioned he died "a few years ago)? I though at the end of Halloween 2 he lights a match in a room full of open gas canisters. Do they know what effects that has on a normal man? That is about it. One other complaint is that throughout - the killer doesn't feel like Michael. The first 2 movies bought something to the character, It may be completely unmatched in the other sequels but I think that Michael was supposed to be a nightmare to the screen - here it feels numb.
Overall: Decent sequel to my favourite Horror film - at least they tried (unlike remakes that shall remain nameless)
