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.
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.
It's October 30, 1988 and Michael Myers has been in a coma since his pursuit of Laurie Strode, 10 years ago, was finally stopped (events of H1 and H2). However when he is transfered from Richmond Mental Institute to Smith's Grove he awakes when he hears that he has a niece in Haddonfield and after killing the transfer crew he escapes. In Haddonfield, the niece, Jamie, has been adopted by the Carruthers family but keeps having nightmares about Michael (but she doesn't know who he is). On Halloween night, Jamie goes out trick and treating, little knowing that her murdering Uncle is following her and her step-sister Rachel. Rushing to her aid is Dr. Loomis and with the help of Sheriff Meeker starts to search the town for Michael and to find Jamie to protect her. But can anything stop Michael this time?Written by

(at around 18 mins) The blue sedan Dr. Loomis parks at the pumps outside the gas station is different than the one that blows up minutes later in the same location during a fire. The vehicle he parks is a 1982-1983 Chevy Malibu with four headlamps and one kind of grille. The vehicle that explodes in the fire is a 1980-1981 Malibu with two headlamps and a different grille.

The scene in which Michael kills the mechanic was originally on-screen. The footage showed Michael stabbing the mechanic in the throat with the crowbar. See more »
this was the first Halloween movie I ever saw, and I must say it was the scariest thing I ever lade eyes on. from start to finish my heart was pounding, I'd never seem anything like it before ever. this film was excellent, the first victim dying by getting a thumb through his skull was a little much, but the rest was fine. the nightmare scene is my favorite moment of the film. one of the best scenes in the whole series. if only the film wasn't about to kill the series with films after it(H5,H6). if Akkad wasn't making the sequels, maybe that ten years of crap he made with "the curse" might have been better. the only thing that made me think what the? with this film is when Micheal throws Loomis through the elementary school window. you can see that the shape has on an unaltered mask. everything else is great.
