Series creator John Carpenter wrote a treatment for this film, that was a more ghostly psychological approach to the Michael Myers mythos. It concerned the town of Haddonfield and what effect the events of the first two films have had on the it's citizens. This concept was later rejected by the producers in favor of the typical slasher fare, at which point in time John Carpenter bailed out of the film, making this the first film in the series to have no participation from him.
