By the late 1990s, the Halloween franchise was looking about as dead as one of Michael Myers' victims. It had been a while since the glory days of the original or the sequel, which were released at a time when slasher movies reigned supreme at the box office. Halloween III: Season of the Witch was notable for not following Michael Myers at all, with the filmmakers hoping to turn the Halloween franchise into an anthology series. But critics and audiences weren't interested in other stories carrying the Halloween name and the movie received negative reviews and low box office returns.

Then came the Jamie Lloyd saga in Halloween 4 and 5, which also brought back Michael Myers and his now familiar mode of stalking babysitters and surviving multiple gunshots. Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers was initially panned upon release, with many critics saying it wasn't as strong as the original. However, it made a profit at the box office, bringing in more money than Halloween III. Many retrospective reviews have also been much kinder to the film, with many claiming it's one of the best in the series. It's also the movie that gave birth to Scream Queen Danielle Harris, who starred as Michael's newest target (and niece), Jamie Lloyd.
