The plot of the Halloween movies

The Halloween franchise is a series of horror films centered on the character of Michael Myers. The first film in the series, Halloween, was released in 1978 and spawned a number of sequels.

The plot of the Halloween movies revolves around Michael Myers, a mentally ill serial killer who murders people on the night of Halloween. In the original movie, he targets a group of teenagers who are babysitting his younger sister. In subsequent films, he targets other groups of people, including a group of college students and a group of people working at a hospital.

The setting of the Halloween movies

Halloween is set in the fictional town of Haddonfield, Illinois. Michael Myers, the Shape ( nickname given by Dr. Loomis), returns to his hometown to terrorise and murder the townspeople. The original movie was set in 1978 and Dr. Loomis (played by Donald Pleasance) is trying to find Michael Myers before he kills again.

Halloween II takes place on the same night as the first movie, with Michael Myers continuing his killing spree. Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis), who was previously thought to be his only remaining victim, discovers that she is his sister.

Halloween III: Season of the Witch is not set in Haddonfield and does not feature Michael Myers. It follows a different storyline about a company that produces Halloween masks which are cursed and cause people to commit suicide or go insane.

Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, released 10 years after the original movie, sees Michael Myers return to Haddonfield once again to kill Laurie Strode, who has since married and had a child.

Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers continues where the previous movie left off, with Michael Myers stalking Laurie Strode’s daughter Jamie (played by Danielle Harris).

In Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers, we learn that Michael Myers has been cursed by Druids and is being controlled by them. He escapes from a sanitarium and goes on a killing spree in an attempt to find his young niece Jamie Lloyd (played by Jodi Lynn O’Keefe).

The most recent Halloween movie was released in 2018 and is a direct sequel to the original 1978 movie. It features Jamie Lee Curtis reprising her role as Laurie Strode and Nick Castle returning as Michael Myers.
