There have been ten movies in the Halloween series, but Michael Myers was not in the third movie, Halloween 3: Season of the Witch, which was a weird sort of stand alone movie that didn’t feature anything from the previous two films.

There was a reboot/re-imagining of the Halloween franchise Written and Directed by Rob Zombie that ran for two movies.

This 2007 version focused more on Young Michael Myers and his time in the sanitarium. The 2009 sequel to that movie focused more on Laurie Strode coping with the effects of Myers’ attacks.
