Story intro

Four decades after The Babysitter Murders, true-crime podcasters Aaron Korey and Dana Haines arrive at Smith's Grove Sanitarium to visit Michael Myers, prior to his transfer to a new facility. They briefly interview Michael's psychiatrist Dr. Ranbir Sartain, a former student of Dr. Samuel Loomis, who informs them that Michael is capable of speaking, but, he chooses not to. Aaron brings out the mask that Michael originally wore in his killing spree, in hopes of gaining a reaction out of him, ultimately failing. In Haddonfield, Illinois, Laurie Strode is a twice divorced alcoholic living in isolation after developing agoraphobia. Laurie resides in a heavily guarded house, where she has prepared for Michael's potential return through extensive combat training. The following night, Michael's transport inexplicably crashes and he escapes, killing the bus driver, a security guard, as well as a father and his son for their car. The ensuing day, on Halloween, Michael spots Aaron and Dana visiting his sister's grave. He follows the pair to a gas station, where he murders them, in addition to a clerk and a mechanic for his overalls. Michael retrieves his mask and heads to Haddonfield. Laurie warns her estranged daughter, Karen, and her son-in-law, Ray, of Michael's getaway, but they dismiss her concern. That night, Allyson, Karen's daughter, encounters her boyfriend Cameron cheating on her at a school-sponsored Halloween dance, and leaves the party with his best friend, Oscar. Meanwhile, Michael wanders a populated street in Haddonfield, packed with families and children trick-or-treating. He breaks into an elderly woman's home and kills her to obtain a kitchen knife, which he immediately utilizes to murder another woman residing next door. Allyson's best friend Vicky is babysitting Julian Morrissey, when her boyfriend Dave arrives. Michael, who had hid in Julian's bedroom closet, kills Vicky and Dave, as Julian flees. Laurie and Deputy Frank Hawkins, who arrested Michael in 1978, hear the incident over the radio and head towards the house. Frank stumbles upon Vicky and Dave's lifeless bodies, while Michael comes across Laurie for the first time in forty years. Laurie shoots Michael in the shoulder, forcing him to retreat. She persuades Karen and Ray to seek protection at her house. Soon after, Michael crosses paths with Allyson and Oscar, killing the latter. Hawkins and Sartain, who's now working with the authorities, rescue Allyson just in time. Hawkins impacts Michael with his vehicle, but Sartain, obsessed with Michael's enigmatic motivations, murders Hawkins to preserve his patient. On their way to Laurie's home, Sartain discloses to Allyson that he arranged for Michael's escape to reinforce his perceived role as an 'apex predator' who needs to finish what he started and kill Laurie to reassert himself. Michael regains consciousness and kills Sartain, while Allyson flees on foot. He murders two police officers patrolling the area and steals their car. After pulling over at Laurie's home, Michael kills Ray, alerting Laurie and Karen to his arrival.
