Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers is a 1988 horror film of the slasher sub-genre directed by Dwight H. Little. It is the fourth installment in the original eight-film Halloween franchise. The film was released theatrically in the United States on October 21st, 1988 and was produced by Moustapha Akkad and Trancas International Films. This film returns to the setting of the first two Halloween films (ignoring the third installment) and introduces the character of Jamie Lloyd. Lloyd is the central protagonist of the fourth and fifth films and makes a brief appearance in the beginning of the sixth film. The seventh installment in the series, Halloween H20: Twenty Years Later ignores the events of the fourth through sixth films, placing their canonicity into question.
