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.
Six years after Michael Myers' last massacre in Haddonfield, Jamie Lloyd has a child, but is then killed by Michael. Michael is allied with the Cult of Thorn, who both protect him and gave him the Curse of Thorn, the reason he killed all of his family. The Strode Family also moved into the Myers' house and are stalked by Michael. Sam Loomis and Tommy Doyle, a boy Laurie babysat during Michael's first rampage, are now out to stop Michael and the cult. Michael heads to kill Jamie's son and the rest of Laurie's family, but Dr. Loomis and Tommy plan to stop the curse, defeat the cult, stop Michael, and put an end to his murderous rampages, once and for all.Written by
It is highly speculated by fans that Kara's father John (Bradford English) is actually the father to Danny his grandson, because in the producers cut he pulls out a of picture of Kara at work and says very aggressively "Happy Halloween little girl" almost being sexually aggressive, as John is known to speak his mind a lot about things never holding back, however he hesitates a bit when he calls Danny a little bastard, not because he knows it'll make Kara angry with him but because it's his son and deep down he knows it, because Kara left for 5 years not explaining why to her family, she pops back up and John sees this five year old boy and knows deep down that it's his kid and explains why she ran off. This also explains later how Kara knew that Steven was Michael's baby. Because Michael was to Jamie what John was to Kara, a family relative who did something they really shouldn't have but did because they were under influence, Michael under the curse of thorn while John was an alcoholic.

The size of the baby changes several times at the beginning of the movie. Also, the baby is far too big to be a newborn. See more »
The film is dedicated in memory of Donald Pleasence. See more »
In the original ending, the cult of Thorn kidnaps Kara and Danny Strode, intending to curse Danny with the sign of Thorn just like Michael Myers was as a child and make him kill his mother in a blood sacrifice. Kara is tied to a sacrificial altar in the bowels of Smith's Grove Sanitarium. They're saved by Tommy, who eventually stops Michael's pursuit of them with the carved stones he calls "the runes of light," which he explained to Kara in an earlier, also deleted scene as being the bane of the sign of Thorn. These rune stones are arranged in the Shape's path by Tommy, and when he steps within their circle, the Shape is frozen in place, like a mystical ward. Tommy then escapes with Danny and Kara, leaving Dr. Loomis to return, and face Michael and Dr. Wynn in the final scene. See more »
This sequel to John Carpenter's Halloween isn't terrible, but it's not good either. The makers of this film were obviously in a rush to get this cut of the film finished. It's evident enough. I have both this version and the Producer's Cut and I think the PC version is better because it explains more about Michael and the Thorn cult, which by the way is a real cult that happens every so often on Halloween night. So in closing I hope the makers of this film decide to make a DVD that has this version and the theatrical trailer, because we owe it to Donald Pleasance to show as much of him in the film as possible. R.I.P DR. LOOMIS. THEATRICAL VERSION 3 OUT OF 5 STARS; THE PC VERSION 4 OUT OF 5. OH AND SOME PC SCENES CAN BE FOUND ON THE TV VERSION OF THIS FILM.
