Halloween: What happens after 40 years of a murder?
Halloween is the 11th installment of the Halloween film series but it is made direct sequel to the 1978 movie of the same name. Why? The director David Gordon Green is mum over this question. It seems as there are no sequels of the 1978 Halloween or the other nine movies made as sequels don’t exist.
The story starts 40 years after of the Haddonfield murders in 1978. Michael Myers, the accused is in captivity for the crime and preparing to be transferred to a maximum security prison. The two journalists go to interview Michael only to find that he isn’t speaking to anyone. His psychiatrist confirms that he can speak but he doesn’t. The journalists came out empty handed from his sanitarium and move to Laurie’s house where Laurie Strode is waiting for Michael. The story moves on with more characters joining and finally Michael is seen stabbed and thrown in a burning castle.
