Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (released in 1988) was the first film in the franchise that I saw in a movie theater. Yes, the film is rated R and yes, I was still a minor; those were the good old days! As such, Halloween 4 has always held a special spot in my heart–which is why I really wish I lived in Utah right now!
The Myers House NC revealed that the actual home where Rachel Carruthers (played by Ellie Cornell) lived is up for sale in Salt Lake City. If you’re a home buyer (or a horror fans willing to pretend to be) you can tour the premises.
The house sits at 509 E. 3rd Avenue N in Salt Lake City; contact RedFin to set up a walk-thru.
“The minute you step foot into this fully renovated Victorian, you know you are home” reads the description. “This thoughtful renovation proves that you can have a perfect collaboration of Victorian meets modern. Gorgeous grand entrance and staircase, opening into Formal Living and Dining space. Stunning open gourmet kitchen with ample bar seating as well as informal dining space and the rare but wonderful butlers pantry adding prep, storage and counter space to your kitchen. Ample storage in the basement and Garage. Sitting porch. Updated electrical and plumbing.”
I guess they don’t think mentioning the home’s connection to Halloween 4 is a selling point!
If it’s been a while, and you don’t live anywhere near SLC, you can at least stroll down Memory Lane by revisiting the synopsis and trailer for Halloween 4: The Return of Michale Myers below.
The apparently comatose Michael Myers (George P. Wilbur) is being transferred from one hospital to another, but he wakes up when the ambulance crew talk about his surviving niece, Jamie (Danielle Harris). After slaughtering his attendants, Myers sets out to find his one living relative who is, fortunately, being cared for by a kind and resourceful foster sister named Rachel (Ellie Cornell). Meanwhile, the ever-cautious Dr. Loomis (Donald Pleasence) remains on the killer’s path.
Halloween 4: The Return of Michale Myers is directed by Dwight H. Little.
