40 years ago, John Carpenter rewrote the rulebook for horror films with Halloween. Now serial killer Michael Myers is back. Carpenter was executive producer and wrote the iconic music for the sequel. For the last 40 years, Michael Myers (Nick Castle) has been doing time for his murders of Halloween. One day, he manages to escape from the bus taking him to a new institution. Driven by his need to kill, Myers sets out for Haddonfield. Only Laurie (Jamie Lee Curtis), who was just able to avoid being killed the first time around, is prepared to take on this personification of evil.
