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.
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.
Heidi, a radio DJ, is sent a box containing a record - a "gift from the Lords". The sounds within the grooves trigger flashbacks of her town's violent past. Is Heidi going mad, or are the Lords back to take revenge on Salem, Massachusetts?
Sheri Moon Zombie,
Three years after he last terrorized his sister, Michael Myers confronts her again, before traveling to Haddonfield to deal with the cast and crew of a reality show which is being broadcast from his old home.
Michael Myers is still at large and no less dangerous than ever. After a failed reunion to reach his baby sister at their old home, Laurie Strode is immediately taken to a hospital to be treated by the wounds that had been afflicted by her brother a few hours ago. However, Michael isn't too far off and will continue his murdering 'Halloween' rampage until he gets his sister all to himself. Written by
Betsy Rue who plays Jazlean was actually given the role during a reshoot as a favor to Rob Zombie to Rue. Originally for Halloween (2007) Betsy was given the role of Lynda but had to drop out of the film due to scheduling. Only then did Kristina Klebe get cast as Lynda See more »
The Rob Zombie iterations of Halloween clearly remove any supernatural aspect from the character of Michael Myers, this results in a plot inconsistency from the first film. It is never explained how Michael was able to survive a gunshot wound to the face at point-blank range without immediate medical attention. See more »

So out of all my major gripes about this film, is the inherent shift between times. Is this a 70s, 80s, 90s, or 00 flick? Sure when you're in Haddonfield its the death to any decade with a vast number of 80s and 90s references. In the outside world there's flat TVs and fancy cell phones. I think Zombie wants us to feel ageless so that anybody can relate, but it just seems to corrupt the story a little bit.
Now on to my main thoughts. I think with less shaky cam we would have possibly the best Halloween film since the original part 2. His use of dreams kept the film going down the road of insanity. Frankly I'm glad we didn't have to watch the bubble gum princess Laurie for 2 hours like last time.
In my opinion Zombie brought Myers back to his roots as the shadowy figure like in the original part 1. No more of this obvious giant walking around in the open and looking like a overgrown child. Just shadowy jumps out of nowhere ending in bloodshed.
Speaking of bloodshed, there is no holding back either. Every kill is nice and bloody like a true slasher film should be.
