Making sense of multiple Myersverses
Any newcomer to the Halloween franchise may be spooked at how little coherency there is between films. For 2018’s Halloween, the sequel takes up 40 years after the ending of the original 1978 film. This factor now gives the horror mainstay no less than four different timelines (ignoring the unrelated Halloween III: Season Of The Witch
from 1982): Halloween II/4/5/6 represent a conclusive narrative of increasingly supernatural events that lead to Myers’ identity being linked to bizarre Celtic folklore. Alternatively, the original Jamie Lee Curtis storyline runs through II/H20 and finishes with the disastrous
Halloween: Resurrection (2002). Zombie’s twosome, of course, introduced and concluded a new universe of their very own.
