you know whats funny about the series? the only ones that were meant to have Myers was the first two. each installment after that were ment to be about different horrifying events that take place on halloween. hence why halloween 3 is so different. but when people complained about where michael was they decided to bring him back for the 4th film. but when they got to H20 they retconned 4, 5, and 6. not sure how ressurection had to do with the kill a family member storyline since the story pretty much ended after the first 10 minutes with Lauries death.
i always wondered about that! thanks for clearing that mystery up! i actually preferred number 8 to 7 though. 7 just annoyed me. but 8 bugged me when they said they were the first people to go into the myers house since the murders, when the whole point of number 6 was that they'd redone the house and let a new family into it and michael was trying to kill them off to reclaim his home. yeah...i'm sad enough to have cared about the continuity in those films
