Catch Up On The Other ‘Halloween’ Films Before You Head To The Theater

It’s time for today’s audiences to meet (or reunite with) the psychopath Michael Myers in the recent release of Halloween. One of the best horror movies of all time, the new slasher is sure to impress. But before you head to the movie theater, what happened in the original series?

Starting From The Beginning

Fans were introduced to Michael Myers in the original 1978 classic, Halloween. Myers was being transferred for a court trial when he escaped. He was on the loose and the psychopath searched for his new victims— babysitters. Myers stalks Laurie Strode, played by Jamie Lee Curtis, and it’s a true Halloween thriller.

More Scares With “Halloween II”

While many say there never should have been a sequel (the original was complete), filmmakers love sagas. Halloween II picked up where the first film left off, focusing more on Laurie Strode’s “relationship” with Michael Myers. The psychopath is determined to kill her this time, and it’s finally revealed Laurie is actually Michael’s sister. Plot twist!

Considered A Flop

Many criticize Halloween III, asking why the film was even made. And if you’re a fan of Michael Myers and Laurie Strode, you’d be disappointed in the third installment. Neither character is even in the film. The movie focuses on other killings that take place on Halloween. You can skip this movie; you won’t miss much.

Many Other Sequels

Once there’s a popular film franchise, Hollywood filmmakers love to keep making more movies. That’s what happened with the Halloween franchise. From 1988 until 2009, seven sequels were made, and most of them featured Michael Myers. In 1998, Curtis returned as Laurie Strode, revealing that the true thrill of the movies is watching the interaction between Laurie and Michael.

Forty Years Later, Michael Returns

It’s been 40 years since Laurie was first attacked by Michael Myers. But in the upcoming sequel, Halloween, Michael escapes once again. Laurie’s in for another night of terror. This time, however, she’s ready for him. If you’re a fan of the original Halloween, this new sequel is intended to pick up right where the first movie left off. You can ignore the other movies.
