Film: Halloween II (1981)

More of the night he came home.

Halloween II — the first sequel in the Halloween series — picks up directly after the events of the first film.

After having shot escaped killer Michael Myers six times, Dr. Loomis believes he has saved high school student Laurie Strode, who has survived the violent rampage of the psychopath that tried to kill her. Loomis heads out of the house to find nothing on the ground but an empty spot, leading him to believe that Michael lived through the gunshots. While paramedics take Laurie to the local hospital to recover, Haddonfield police and Dr. Loomis search for Michael, unaware that he has learned of Laurie's location — and that he has a hidden reason for wanting to kill Laurie...

John Carpenter intended this film to mark the end of the Michael Myers story, and the next film in the franchise did something completely different altogether. Two of the Halloween sequels pick up after the events of this film: Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers serves as a direct sequel to the events of this film with a new protagonist, while Halloween H20: Twenty Years Later ignores Halloween 4 (and its two sequels) to continue the story of Laurie Strode.
