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.
Young lawyer Jack (Daniel Gillies) was traumatized at a young age seeing a friend drown to death. Now he's sleeping with the wife (Yuri) of a client (Eiji) in Toyko. Eiji takes Jack and his wife out on his boat and clearly knows they're sleeping together. He plans revenge...but things suddenly go wrong.
Starts out as a standard "husband kills unfaithful wife and lover" story but (during the last half hour) it switches gears totally and turns into a very eerie ghost story. Dead bodies pop up--body parts go flying--Jack and Yuri are attacked multiple times--it never stops for breath and gets more than a little scary. Good acting by the entire cast (especially Gillies) helps a lot. Fast and scary--a GREAT "Masters of Horror" episode.
