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

Due to budgetary reasons, this was the first Halloween film to be shot in the 1.85:1 aspect ratio. See more »
(at around 1h 1 min) When Rachel throws the cup of coffee at Kelly, we hear Rachel say "Have some coffee!" but her mouth clearly says something different. See more »
We'll be at the Fallbrooks. The number's next to the phone.
I know, and next to that is police, hospital, fire, and probably the National Guard.
I want you two to have fun tonight. Make sure Jamie's in bed by 9:30.
You're gonna be late. You don't wanna blow your promotion.
Don't make fun. Tonight is the difference between vacations in Bermuda, and spending another two weeks with your grandmother in Cleveland.

The German version of this not-so violent film was cut during the gore scenes to get a 16 rating. See more »
The first time I saw this film, I was bored. I thought it was uneventful. But then, I watched it a second time and loved it. This movie is very suspenseful, has very little blood/gore, and the acting by Danielle Harris is just incredible. I also love Ellis Cornell, she is such a doll! Brady was an idiot to let go of such a cute girl.
Rent this! It's better than II and V.
