After being committed for 17 years, Michael Myers, now a grown man and still very dangerous, escapes from the mental institution (where he was committed as a 10 year old) and he immediately returns to Haddonfield, where he wants to find his baby sister, Laurie. Anyone who crosses his path is in mortal danger.
On one last road trip before they're sent to serve in Vietnam, two brothers and their girlfriends get into an accident that calls their local sheriff to the scene. Thus begins a terrifying experience where the teens are taken to a secluded house of horrors, where a young, would-be killer is being nurtured.
Six years after Michael Myers last terrorized Haddonfield, he returns there in pursuit of his niece, Jamie Lloyd, who has escaped with her newborn child, for which Michael and a mysterious cult have sinister plans.
The residents of Haddonfield don't know it yet... but death is coming to their small sleepy town. Sixteen years ago, a ten year old boy called Michael Myers brutally kills his step father, his elder sister and her boyfriend. Sixteen years later, he escapes from the mental institution and makes his way back to his hometown intent on a murderous rampage pursued by Dr Sam Loomis who is Michael's doctor and the only one who knows Michael's true evil. Elsewhere a shy teenager by the name of Laurie Strode is babysitting on the night Michael comes home... is it pure coincidence that she and her friends are being stalked by him? Written by
(at around 46 mins) When Big Joe Grizzly (Ken Foree) climbs out of his truck the wash attendant lifts the hood then goes for a hose. When the camera switches to where Ken's character is walking, you can see in the background the attendant lifts the hood and goes for the hose again. See more »
I really loved this movie when it came out in theaters. I actually watched it twice in a row because it was so awesome!! The part I really liked when Michael captured Laurie, they had somewhat of an unusual bond that faded so many years earlier... After that happened...(well you will just have to watch the DVD to see.) The actors were great... It merely captured the spirit of the John Carpenter Classic. Even though I like the original, it's not as gory and cool like this one. It really captures the sincere moments in the life of Michael Myers and his sister Laurie Strode. And to be honest... I don't even think this is really a remake... it's a RE-DEFINED HALLOWEEN.
