The film opens up at the Haddonfield Morgue where a medical examiner examines the body of Micheal Myers. As she examines his corpse, Micheal's eyes snap open and kills the examiner by breaking her neck with his bare hands. This was revealed to be a nightmare dreamt by Laurie Strode as she wakes up screaming as the nurses try to restrain her. Laurie was committed to Smith's Grove Sanatarium for nineteen years after the events of the Hillcrest Academy massacre for accidently killing a paramedic thinking it was her brother, Micheal Myers.
The next day, Laurie was released from the sanitarium due to therapy and travels back to Haddonfield, Illinois to start all over. Later that day, Laurie realizes that she is across the street from her brother's childhood home which was now renovated. That night, two kids Felicity Cooper and Marcus Holland are getting ready to go to the movies. As they are leaving Felicity's house, Felicity forgets her purse and goes back inside while Marcus waits in his car. As Marcus is waiting in the car, an unidentified figure pops from the back seat and attacks him before stabbing him through the car seat and slitting his throat.
