‘Halloween’ Parts 3 & 4 – Explaining Movies That Don’t Make Sense
Next is ‘Halloween 3: Season of the Witch.’ We don’t know what the f— they were thinking here. The movie is about Halloween, but has nothing to do with Michael Myers — so we’re skipping it (you should too).
‘Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers’ is badass! Unfortunately, it is also where the plot of the franchise begins to come apart. Michael apparently survived being shot in both eyes and burned to a crisp and has been in a coma for several years. During a transfer to a different facility, he escapes.
We are told that Laurie Strode died in a car accident years earlier, leaving behind her daughter Jamie Lloyd (remember this part for later). Obviously, she is the target for big Mike this time around, but not if Dr. Loomis has anything to say about it. Wait a minute, didn’t he explode in part 2? Yet here he is, with only a fist sized burn on his right cheek (see above).
After much more killing, Michael fails to murder his niece and is given the 21 shotgun salute by the police. After being shot up, Michael falls in a hole and everybody just walks away and assumes he’s really dead this time. I mean, why wouldn’t he be? He survived an explosion, but that 10 foot deep well he fell into is bound to kill him.
Dead Michael or not, the ordeal was so traumatizing that little Jamie straps on a mask and stabs her adopted mother a bunch of times, just like uncle Mikey! End part 4.
