Michael Audrey Myers was born on October 19, 1957. When he was six years old on Halloween night in 1963 he came home early after a night of trick or treating took a kitchen knife from a drawer and put on clown mask sneaked upstairs and brutally and mercilessly killed his older sister Judith after having sex with her boyfriend stabbing her seventeen times until she bled out. His parents caught him and was sent to Smith's Grove Sanitarium until he was at the age of twenty one for a adult trial. His psychiatrist, Dr. Samuel Loomis, spent eight years trying to reach him and understand his psyche and find out why he did such a horrible act but Michael had refused to say a word since that night and always showed no emotion of any kind. By the time he was fourteen Loomis realized that he was nothing but pure evil and had no discernible motive in killing his sister and simply wanted to destroy peace. Thus, he spent seven more trying to keep him locked away. Just as he was about to be permanently locked up in a federal prison, on Halloween Eve fifteen years later at the age of twenty one Michael stole a Smith's Grove car and drove back to Haddonfield. He also killed an industrial worker named Christopher Hastings to wear his grey jumpsuit coveralls and robbed a store to wear the iconic Captain Kirk mask painted white with dark hair and also stole a kitchen knife and rope. The town sheriff Leigh Brackett investigated the robbery but thought it was just kids making a mess.
Michael soon took residence in his old home and killed and ate a dog. He stalked a young seventeen girl named Laurie Strode, and tried to kill her. In the process, he killed her friends Annie Brackett, the daughter of the sheriff, Lynda Van Der Klock, and Bob Simmons. Knowing that Laurie would find them, he removed Judith's gravestone and placed it behind Annie's corpse and also positioned the corpses of the other teenagers in ways that would frighten Laurie. Laurie however recovers from Michael's attacks and stabs him with a coat hanger. Just as she thought Michael was dead, he wakes up but Dr. Loomis arrives and shoots him six times, causing him to fall out the window. Dr. Loomis looks down from a three story balcony but finds out that Michael has survived and escaped without anyone seeing his breathing can be heard all over Haddonfield meaning he could be anywhere and that nowhere was safe from the boogeyman.
Taking place immediately after the previous film, Michael continued trying to kill Laurie who is revealed to be his younger sister born Cynthia Myers that night and killed many more victims, most of them at Haddonfield Memorial Hospital, but was eventually shot in the eyes by Laurie, and set on fire by Dr. Loomis, who activated several flammable gas tanks and turned on a lighter, causing an explosion that set Michael on fire and supposedly burned him to death. From here, the old timeline splits into two alternate timelines.
Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers
Michael was left in a coma. He was sent to Ridgemont Federal Sanitarium until he was arranged to be transferred back to Smith's Grove. However, upon hearing that his sister Laurie Strode had died and her daughter Jamie Lloyd lived in Haddonfield, Michael awoke from his coma, killed the Smith's Grove paramedics and drivers, crashing the ambulance and mutilating their bodies. After the vehicle crashed off a bridge, Michael escaped and stopped at Penney's gas station and murdered the employees. Loomis arrives shortly thereafter in pursuit with a staff car loaned to him by Ridgemont, and upon discovering the victims, sees Michael wearing the mechanic's jumpsuit. Loomis tries pleading with Michael to spare Haddonfield's population with looking for Jamie and take him instead, but when Michael remains silent, Loomis fires at him, but Michael has vanished. Michael responded by driving off in a stolen tow truck, burning the station to the ground in the process and leaving Loomis stranded. Jamie saw him as Loomis finally arrived in town.
He contacted Sheriff Ben Meeker, with the pair of them heading out searching for Jamie, who was trick-or-treating with Rachel. In the meantime, Michael attacked the Haddonfield Police station, murdering Meeker's deputies still there, and threw an electrical technician named Bucky into some high voltage power transformers at a power substation, plunging Haddonfield into darkness. When Loomis reveals Michael has returned home to kill, the truckers of Haddonfield form into a lynch mob to deal with Michael themselves. Meeker and Loomis find Jamie and Rachel and take them to take refuge in the former's house. Unfortunately, Michael had followed them there hiding in the back of the surviving deputy's patrol car, and murders Deputy Logan, Meeker's daughter Kelly, and her boyfriend Brady as he pursues Jamie and Rachel. Rachel is knocked unconscious as they try to climb down from the roof of the Meeker house to escape Michael, and Jamie is then taken to her school by Loomis, only to be attacked by Michael there. He nearly has Jamie at one point, grabbing her by the leg, but a recovered Rachel arrives and blasts Michael with a fire extinguisher, forcing him to let go of Jamie. They are soon met by Earl and his team of truckers, who heard the school alarm go off, and on Rachel's suggestion, they flee Haddonfield, meeting up with the Illinois State Police on their way to Haddonfield to reinforce Sheriff Meeker, who direct them to a substation where they believe they will be safe. However, Michael had gotten aboard the truck, and kills Earl's fellow truckers in Unger and the Gateway brothers Orrin and Alan, who personally held a grudge against Myers for the murder of Alan's son ten years prior, before brutally ripping Earl's throat open, forcing Rachel to take control of the truck and try to throw him off of it. She eventually throws him off the roof and hitting him straight on while cursing him to die before ramming him. Jamie went over to check her uncle's body, and as he rose once again, Meeker and a team of both the lynch mob and Illinois State Troopers showed up and shot him relentlessly until he fell down a nearby mineshaft.
However, when Jamie held Michael's hand before he awoke, some of his essence potentially transferred into her, possessing her as she took a pair of scissors and, non-lethally, stabbed her foster mother with them, before appearing before Loomis, Sheriff Meeker, her foster father, and Rachel, in a scene reminiscent of when Michael killed his sister, causing Loomis to break down in shock and horror and nearly shoot her before being stopped by Meeker, while the Sheriff, Rachel, and her dad stare in muted shock and horror at thinking Jamie has followed in Michael's footsteps and been possessed by the evil within Michael.
Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers
After being shot at and falling into the mine shaft, Michael escapes being blown up by Sheriff Meeker, the lynch mob, and state troopers when they toss dynamite down the shaft to finish him off by escaping into a nearby creek and slipping back into his coma upon being found by a local hermit. A year later, Michael awoke from his coma, and killed the hermit who had tended to him. Michael returned to Haddonfield, and began stalking Rachel and stabbing her with a pair of scissors, taking revenge on her for the attempt on his life when she ran him down a year ago. When Rachel's friends Tina Williams and Samantha showed up looking for her, Michael followed them to a party. At the party, Michael murdered Samantha and her boyfriend in the barn just as Tina found the bodies of her friends and the police officers sent to protect her after Jamie sensed she was Michael's next target due to the psychic bond she had gained with Michael following her being possessed by Michael's influence and stabbing her foster mother before regaining control of her body. Unfortunately, when Jamie and her friend Billy from the Haddonfield Children's Clinic showed up to help Tina, Michael went after Jamie, and Tina heroically sacrificed herself with letting Michael fatally stab her while Jamie was rescued by Loomis, Meeker, and the joint task force of Haddonfield Police and Illinois State Troopers. After seeing Tina's corpse get taken away by the coroner, Jamie agrees to Loomis' plan to capture Michael once and for all.
Sheriff Meeker arranged to using Jamie as bait to lure Michael back to the old Myers house to capture him with a large force of policemen, including a SWAT team. Michael murdered the staff at the Children's Clinic to distract the police, luring Meeker, his deputies, and most of the state troopers back there, leaving only two troopers to protect Loomis and Jamie. Michael then killed the state troopers who had remained with Loomis and Jamie and began chasing Jamie through the attic. He pursued Jamie downstairs, where Loomis shot him with tranquilizers before finally beating him unconscious with a plank of wood before collapsing from a stroke, moments before Meeker and the rest of the police return after realizing they had been lured away so Michael could get to Jamie. Michael was taken into custody at the Haddonfield Police Station, and Meeker made preparation for him to be transferred to a maximum security facility by the National Guard where he would remain until he hopefully died. However, before that could happen, a mysterious Man in Black who had arrived in Haddonfield attacks the station, killing Meeker and his men, and destroying the cell Michael was in, freeing him, to Jamie's horror when she discovers the carnage and her uncle missing from his destroyed cell.
Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers
The residents of Haddonfield believed that Jamie and Michael died in the explosion at the police station in 1989. In fact, the mysterious man in black had taken them and had hid them away in an unknown building, and now had impregnated Jamie. Jamie hid her baby at a bus station and fled back to Haddonfield. When Michael forced her off the road, Jamie took refuge in a barn, where Michael found and impaled her on a corn thresher. As the bleeding Jamie told him he could not have her baby, Michael switched on the machinery and watched as his niece was gutted. He then returned to Jamie's vehicle in search of the infant, to find that he was not there.
Meanwhile, relatives of the couple who adopted Laurie Strode have moved into the old Myers house. Tommy Doyle tracked the call to the bus station and discovered her baby, who he named Stephen. Michael returned to his house and murdered the Strodes in search of Jamie's baby, leaving only Danny and his mother Kara alive.
Tommy and Loomis tracked the cult down to the Smith's Grove Sanitarium. As Loomis confronted Wynn, the latter congratulated him on being the first to recognize the unique power of Michael's evil. Michael then continued his search for Jamie's baby, only to be pumped full of drugs and beaten unconscious with a pipe by Tommy. As Tommy, Kara, and the children prepared to leave Smith's Grove for safety, Dr. Loomis decided to stay to attend to some "business". When Loomis returned, Michael was nowhere to be found, his mask is on the floor, and Loomis is heard screaming implying that Michael finally killed his nemeisis.
An alternate ending has Wynn, dressed as Michael, being discovered by Loomis, before Wynn passes the Mark of Thorn to Loomis, effectively making him Michael's eternal guardian, causing Loomis to scream as he comes to the horrible realization.
Halloween H20: Twenty Years Later
The H20 timeline canonizes the events of only the first two films. Michael was not heard from since Laurie Strode had faked her death in an automobile accident, renamed herself "Keri Tate", and became the headmistress at Hillcrest Academy High School and had a son named John. After terrorizing the town, Michael pursued John and his girlfriend to Laurie's house, where the two finally meet each other for the first time in 20 years. Michael killed Laurie's boyfriend and Laurie, John and his girlfriend eventually escape, but afterward, Laurie orders them to escape (and they do so) while Laurie stays behind to fight Michael.
She picks up an axe and arrives back at the school. She finds Michael and enters a final battle with him. After a long pursuit, Laurie eventually stabbed Michael several times and threw him off a balcony. As Laurie prepared to finish off an unconscious Michael, a security guard stopped her, claiming that "he's already dead".
The police come and clean the mess and put Michael in a body bag and put it in an ambulance. Laurie receives the axe, steals the ambulance with Michael's body in the back and drives off with it. Michael is still alive and he escapes the body bag, and again tries to kill her but Laurie slams on the brakes, throwing him through the windshield. He gets up but Laurie runs the ambulance at her brother and the vehicle tumbles down a cliff but she escapes, while Michael gets trapped between it and a tree.
Laurie manages to recover and pick up her axe again and stands in front of Michael. They reach out to each other, but Laurie remembers all of the loved ones that Michael has taken. She pulls her hand back and delivers the final blow and decapitates Michael, finally killing him. Michael's head rolls down and stops. As police sirens are heard in the background, Laurie sighs in relief, now that fear and evil has finally been lifted now that Michael Myers is gone.
Three years later, Michael's death in Halloween H20: Twenty Years Later was revealed to actually be the death of a paramedic. It is revealed that he was not decapitated, but he switched clothing and mask with a paramedic who was killed instead. After unintentionally killing an innocent man, Laurie had been arrested and sent to the Grace Andersen Sanitarium as punishment under belief she killed the paramedic in a state of insanity when she thought it was Michael. She was believed to be in a catatonic state by the nurses but was secretly preparing for her brother's inevitable return. Michael finally appeared on Halloween in 2001, killing two security guards to get to his sister.
Laurie lured him onto the institution, where Michael dangled over the edge of the roof and feigned confusion. Unable to risk-taking another innocent life, Laurie hesitated and attempted to remove Michael's mask to be sure. Michael took advantage of this indecision, grabbing his sister and stabbing her in the back. Laurie defied her brother one last time, kissing his mask and telling him that he would see him in hell before falling off the roof to her death. Later after killing his sister, Michael has begun to kill other people who won the contest to be in the internet reality show Dangertainment. Michael has tried to kill Freddie Harris, Myles "Deckard" Barton, and Sara Moyer but Freddie electrocutes Michael, tangling him up in electrical wiring before carrying Sara out of the burning garage. The Myers house burns to the ground, as Sara thanks Deckard for saving her life.
Michael's body and the bodies of his victims are then taken to the morgue. As the medical examiner begins to examine Michael's body, he awakens.
In this timeline, Michael's background is subtly but significantly changed. He is not Laurie Strode's brother and is not suggested to have any living relatives. Additionally, he was arrested very shortly after the events of 1978's Halloween - the injuries he sustained at the end of that film were presumably too severe for him to continue killing.
Michael was apprehended by Sheriff's Deputy Frank Hawkins, who prevented Dr. Loomis from killing him and had him taken into custody. Michael was then returned to Smith's Grove Sanitarium, where he spent the next 40 years. While he mostly healed from his wounds, he is shown to have permanent damage to his left eye, where Laurie stabbed him with a coat hanger.
40 years after the events of the first film, podcasters Aaron Korey and Dana Haines are doing a documentary based on the 1978 Haddonfield murders. They meet the now 61 year old Michael and after showing Michael his old mask demand that he say something only to get no reaction. Afterwards he was sentenced to a maximum security asylum but the bus transferring Michael crashes, and Michael escapes, killing a father and son by snapping their necks. He later kills Aaron and Dana at a gas station (and steals an engineer's clothes in order to wear them for himself) and retrieves his mask. Returning to Haddonfield, Michael starts a killing spree, randomly massacring innocent victims, including some of Allyson's friends. Allyson is found by Officer Hawkins and Dr. Sartain, Michael's new doctor. Dr. Sartain murders Hawkins, revealing that he wished for Myers to live so that he could investigate more of his true nature. Michael regains consciousness after being run over by Hawkins and karmically stomps Sartain's head to a bloody pulp.
Myers then heads for Laurie's house, intending to end her as vengeance for the injuries she gave him years ago as well as for bruising his pride. Laurie engages Michael in a fight, ending with Michael getting the upper hand and throwing her out of the window. He then tries to kill Allyson and Karen. The two women make it to the saferoom, and Karen succeeds at grazing Michael. Laurie returns and propels Michael down into the saferoom. After retrieving her daughter and granddaughter, Laurie traps Michael in the saferoom with metal bars and fills the room with gas. She then drops a flare into the saferoom, setting it ablaze. Myers is last seen looking at the survivors with a dissonant expression as the house burns to the ground in a deadly fire but Michael's body can not be seen. After the credits heavy breathing can be heard confirming that Michael escaped the inferno.
