#68 - "Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers" (1988) with Charlie Cotter

As of October 2022, there have been 11 films that continue or reimagine the story of the character known as “The Shape” that was first laid out in John Carpenter’s Halloween released in 1978. At this point in its history, the Halloween franchise has been rebooted once (by Rob Zombie in 2007) and retconned twice (by Halloween H20 in 1998 and then by Halloween in 2018), creating no less than four different continuities. After the release of “Halloween III: Season of the Witch” in 1982 became a box office and fanbase disappointment, this 80’s Flick was the first to bring back the horror icon that is Michael Myers. So lock the doors, pull out your red and white clown costume, and pick up a new William Shatner mask from the local drug store as Tim Williams and guest co-host, Charlie Cotter, discuss “Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers” from 1988 on this episode of the 80’s Flick Flashback Podcast!


Here are some additional behind the scenes trivia we were unable to cover in this episode:

  • Danielle Harris revealed in 25 Years of Terror, when her character runs through the neighborhood screaming for help someone legitimately called the cops, "I was banging on doors, yelling for someone to help me, help me, after I got lost trick or treating or something. So, 4 o'clock in the morning, they're hearing a little screaming up the streets, and someone called the cops. The cops came. Then the story ended up in The Inquirer that I was almost kidnapped off of the set.”
