Body Count

Unlike other body counts related to the Halloween franchise, this page will mention deaths that were later retconned in subsequent films (i.e.: Michael & Loomis’ intended deaths in Halloween II). For characters who died in one continuity but are still alive in another (such as Marion Chambers), their death isn’t considered retconned in the numbers.

For some deaths that occurred off screen, there weren’t any good shots of the body, so I’ve used the last scene the character was in before they died, or I’ve posted the aftermath.

Where applicable, some characters’ deaths will show a second photo. This list is based off the theatrical cut of each film; alternate deaths can be found at the bottom of the page.

Unlike other films, no years are explicitly stated for when the film’s acts take place. Though the film’s shooting script listed 1978 (the first act), 1979 (the second act) and 1995 (the third act) as the years, Rob Zombie ultimately left it ambiguous. As deleted material from the sequel implies the films take place in present day, 45 Lampkin Lane has chosen to base the dates off the film’s release and work backwards from there.
