-> ''"I met him...15 years ago, I was told there was nothing left; no reason, no conscience, no understanding and even the most rudimentary sense of life or death, of good or evil,...right or wrong. I met this...six-year-old child with this blank, pale, emotionless face, and...the blackest eyes - the devil's eyes. I spent eight years trying to reach him and then another seven trying to keep him locked up because I realized that what was living behind that boy's eyes was purely and simply…evil."''

* FranchiseZombie: John Carpenter, in a 1982 interview, stated that Michael Myers and Dr. Loomis both died at the end of ''Halloween II'' and that he intended to make the series into an anthology "like ''Series/TheTwilightZone'' but on a larger scale." After the financial flop of ''Halloween III'' Carpenter opted out of doing any more films in the series and signed away the rights to producer Moustapha Akkad, who quickly revived the original formula. Michael Myers went on to appear in five more films after his canon death, not counting the remakes.

* '''''Film/{{Halloween|1978}}'' (1978)''' -- At the age of 6, Michael Myers stabbed his older sister Judith to death on Halloween; this led to his incarceration at a mental hospital. Fifteen years later, Michael escapes from the hospital on the night before Halloween and returns to his hometown of Haddonfield, Illinois to stalk teenager Laurie Strode and her friends. Only Sam Loomis, Michael's former psychiatrist, stands any chance of stopping Michael.
* '''''Film/{{Halloween II|1981}}'' (1981)''' -- On the same night as the original film, [[FinalGirl Laurie]] gets taken to a hospital to recover from Michael Myers' attack, but the serial killer follows her there. The film [[TheReveal soon reveals the reason Michael stalks Laurie]]: [[spoiler:he wants to kill his long-lost sister, who doesn't know about the familial relationship between them]].

* '''''Film/HalloweenIIISeasonOfTheWitch'' (1982)''' -- A toymaker uses rocks from Stonehenge to create masks that cause children's heads to explode into writhing piles of snakes and bugs if they watch certain Halloween commercials. This plan also involves robots and [[DeathRay lasers]]. Carpenter originally envisioned the ''Halloween'' franchise as a GenreAnthology series, which makes ''Halloween III'' the only film of the franchise that ''doesn't'' feature Michael. The film's poor reception killed the anthology idea, though.

*** However, ''Halloween: Resurrection'', a direct sequel to ''H20'', establishes that ''Halloween II'' (1981) is canon as a TalkativeLoon briefly mentions Michael victims at the hospital from the second movie.
