The ‘Halloween’ Franchise – Explaining Movies That Don’t Make Sense

Halloween - Young Michael Myers

Sometimes when a horror film has too many sequels, they mess up the details of the backstory. Case in point — the Halloween franchise, particularly parts 4 – 7. Join us as we explain / make fun of the more ridiculous parts of Michael Myers’ history.

The ‘Halloween’ narrative started out simple enough — a kid who just wants to kill his family with a big ass knife. As Michael grew up, killed and was resurrected several times, the plots became increasingly more difficult to explain. Some writers tried to get a little too fancy in the later films, but it could’ve been worse. I remember reading in ‘Fangoria’ years ago that they barely rejected a script where the FBI sent Michael Myers into space (which may or may not have been recycled into the worst of the ‘Friday the 13th’ films — ‘Jason X’).

So over the next couple of minutes, I will attempt to do what the screenwriters couldn’t — explain the plot of the ‘Halloween’ films.
