* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Michael's on a roll this time. He knows Loomis will be chasing after him again, so at the gas station where he gets a mode of transportation, he disables all the phones. Seeing that Loomis parked his car next to a pump, Michael hits the pump when making his escape--causing it to explode and destroy Loomis's car. Michael also wipes out the police force and knocks out long distance service and power to the entire town before going after Jamie. And while he turned down a chance to kill Loomis at the gas station, when the old doctor keeps getting in the way, Michael simply throws him through a window and continues after Jamie.

* BigDamnHeroes: Loomis and Meeker picking up Rachel and Jamie off the street. It's not played up as a grand rescue, but the audience knows Michael is lurking about and would've made his move if not for the arrival of the police car.

* HopeSpot: All right, the State Troopers are headed into town and the truckers are getting Rachel and Jamie to safety. Everything's gonna be okay--OhCrap Michael's hanging onto the bottom of the pickup truck!
* IgnoredExpert: Loomis again. He knows exactly what happens after the ambulance crash, despite Hoffman's protests. Meeker is a little skeptical of Loomis's claims early on, but he's more willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.



* ItsPersonal: Loomis's stake in this. He points to his burn scars and remarks he doesn't want anyone to go through what he did.



* OverprotectiveDad: Don't go thinking that Meeker didn't notice how Brady was home alone with his daughter.
-->"Oh, yeah... I catch you gropin' my daughter, I'll use that shotgun on you. You understand?"



* PutOnABus: Loomis is told that Sheriff Brackett has retired and moved out of town.
* RightBehindMe: Rachel complains about having to give up her date with Brady to babysit just as Jamie walks in from behind.



* StockSubtitle

to:

* StockSubtitleStockSubtitle: Justified because, after the Myers-less third movie, the producers wanted to make it absolutely clear that Michael was back.




to:

* YourCheatingHeart: Brady moved onto Meeker's daughter when Rachel got tasked with taking Jamie out trick-or-treating.

In ''Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers'', ten years have passed since Michael Myers terrorized the town of Haddonfield, Illinois. The fire that seemed to consume both Michael and Dr. Samuel Loomis (Creator/DonaldPleasance) put Myers in a comatose state and burned Loomis over a good portion of his body, but both men lived. During a medical transport, Michael awakens from his comatose state and heads back home with a new target in his mind: his young niece, Jamie (Creator/DanielleHarris). Loomis, as usual, follows the trail back to Haddonfield, and it soon becomes a race against time to save Jamie from her psychotic uncle.

While not seen as the best of the series, it was well-received by fans at the time of it's release, and did decent business at the box office, enough to bring Michael Myers back for good. It also begins a three-part story arc that continues with the [[Film/Halloween5TheRevengeOfMichaelMyers 5th movie]] and concludes with ''Film/HalloweenTheCurseOfMichaelMyers''.
