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.

The majority of John Ottman's original score was rejected late in post-production and replaced with Marco Beltrami's scores to Scream (1996), Scream 2 (1997), and Mimic (1997). The producers wanted a darker, more Scream-like score, while Ottman's score wasn't strong enough to fit the bill. Some of what remained of Ottman's score was heavily edited and often was used for scenes for which they were not originally intended. Nonetheless, Ottman's music was later released in its entirety on an album entitled "Portrait of Terror", from Varese Sarabande Records. See more »

This movie is such a great way to end the "Halloween" series... if it truly is over. As in all "Halloween" movies, the ending seems final, but we all know that Michael has been known to come back... more horrifyingly with each new movie. This movie brings the next generation into the story, with Josh Hartnett playing John Tate, Laurie Strode's (now Keri Tate, played by Jaime Lee Curtis) son. I could definitely see this movie coming back to haunt us... yet again. Honestly, I hope it does. It's good to see all of the surprises in store for us "Halloween" fans. I can't wait to see if there's another movie!
