Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers - 1995
On October 31, 1989, Michael Myers and his niece Jamie Lloyd have been abducted by a mysterious "Man in Black" at the Haddonfield Police Station. Six years later, a much older Jamie Lloyd, has been impregnated and her baby is born on October 30, 1995. The baby is carried away by the "Man in Black" who appears to be the leader of a Druid-like cult. Later that night, a nurse, helps Jamie escape with her baby and is soon killed by Michael.
Jamie and her baby flee in a stolen pickup. Stopping briefly at a deserted bus station, Jamie makes a call to a Haddonfield radio station to warn them that Michael is about to return to town, only to be ignored by the radio D.J. Barry Simms who is doing a broadcast on the Haddonfield murders. Meanwhile, Dr. Loomis, now retired, is visited by his friend and colleague Dr. Terence Wynn, the chief administrator of Smith's Grove Sanitarium where Michael had been incarcerated as a boy.
Wynn asks Loomis to return to Smith's Grove. During their conversation they overhear Jamie's plea for help on a local radio station. Later, Jamie drives back on the road followed by Michael, who causes her to crash into an old barn. Michael kills his niece by impaling her on a corn thresher. However, he finds that Jamie's baby is not in the truck. Back in Haddonfield, Tommy Doyle, whom Laurie Strode babysat in the first film and who saw Michael as a child, now lives in a boarding house run by Mrs. Blankenship, a mysterious old woman.
The family living in the Myers house across the street are relatives of the Strode family: Kara Strode, her six-year-old son, Danny, her teenage brother, Tim, and her parents Debra and John. For years, Tommy has been obsessed with finding the truth behind the motives of Michael Myers. He finds Jamie's baby at the bus station, takes him into his care and names him Steven. Tommy runs into Dr. Loomis and tells him that the Strodes are living in the Myers house. The two believe Michael has returned to Haddonfield.
After Dr. Loomis tells her that she is living in Michael's home, Debra calls John to tell him she wants to leave Haddonfield but is killed by Michael. Later, Kara returns home to find Danny in his room with Tommy, whom he had met while on his way home. The three go to the boarding house, where Tommy reveals that he believes Michael has been inflicted with the curse of Thorn by a Druid-inspired cult. Thorn is an ancient Druid symbol that represented a demon that spread sickness and caused destruction.
To prevent this, one child from each tribe was chosen to bear the curse of Thorn to offer a blood sacrifice of its next of kin on the night of Samhain (Halloween). When the corresponding Thorn constellation appears, Michael appears. The curse explains why Michael is out to kill his family and also accounts for his superhuman abilities. Tommy believes that Steven will be Michael's final sacrifice.
While Tommy goes out to look for Dr. Loomis at a party at the Haddonfield Junior College, Mrs. Blankenship reveals to Kara that she was babysitting Michael Myers when he killed his sister many years ago, and that Danny hears the "voice" (from the "Man in Black") telling him to kill just like Michael did. Thus, Danny will be the next child cursed by Thorn after Steven's sacrifice. Meanwhile, Michael kills John and Tim Strode, Tim's girlfriend Beth (Mariah O'Brien), and Barry Simms.
After Tommy returns home with Dr. Loomis, the "Man in Black" finally reveals himself to be Dr. Wynn. The "Cult of Thorn" takes Kara, Danny, Steven, and Michael to Smith's Grove. There, Loomis confronts Dr. Wynn who credits Loomis for first recognizing the evil the cult has inflicted inside Michael and how Jamie's baby represents the dawn of a new age. Loomis is then knocked unconscious by a staff member. Tommy finds Kara locked in a room in the maximum security ward and frees her.
In one of the main hallways, they see Wynn and a team of scientists walk into an operating room to perform a scientific breakthrough procedure presumably involving Michael's DNA. Tommy and Kara sneak into the adjoining room where they find Danny and Steven. Michael, angry at being exploited by Wynn and his staff, walks into the operating room with a surgical machete and slaughters them all.
Tommy, Kara, and the kids run with Michael in hot pursuit, and hide in a high-tech laboratory. Inside the lab, Kara notices tanks containing human fetuses with a chart of runes and scientific letter codes connected together by the Thorn symbol, suggesting that Dr. Wynn and some cult members have been exploiting the evil power of Thorn for the benefit of medical science, making Jamie's baby the result of this experiment.
Michael breaks into the room. Tommy injects him with a corrosive liquid and beats him into unconsciousness with a lead pipe. As Dr. Loomis, Tommy, Kara, Danny, and Steven are about to escape, Loomis tells them to go on without him because he has "a little business" to attend to. Back inside the building, Michael's mask is found lying on the floor of the lab room as the screams of Dr. Loomis can be heard in the background leaving the ending ambiguous.
