Biography

Early life

Allyson was born in Haddonfield, Illinois in 2001 to parents Karen and Ray Nelson. She also met her grandmother Laurie Strode on occasion, but never visited her house. At some point in her early life, she met her two best friends Vicky and Dave and also her boyfriend, Cameron Elam.

2018 massacre

One morning in October, before heading off to school, Allyson sat at the kitchen table to finish off some homework and asked her mother if she had invited her grandmother to the dinner they planned for that evening. Karen explained that she did but Laurie had no intention of coming. Annoyed, at her mother, Allyson left when Vicky and Dave arrived.

Allyson, Vicky, and Dave walk to school together.

When walking to school, Allyson confided in Vicky and Dave and told them about her family's history with Halloween. Dave explained that by today's standards, having only a few deaths is not something the town would worry about. Vicky told him to shut up and, to lighten the mood, he exploded a nearby pumpkin head and the three friends ran to school. When Allyson is retrieving her books from her locker, Cameron snuck up on her and the two kissed and laughed. They spoke about their costumes for the school's Halloween dance until Cameron's best friend, Oscar came up and jokingly kissed them both on the foreheads. After messing around the three headed to class. While sitting at her desk, Allyson looked out of the window beside her and noticed her grandmother staring at her from across the street. Not thinking much of it, Allyson put her focus back on the class.

She later met with Laurie beside the track field in school where she was given $3,000. She refused to take it, but when Laurie insisted, she told her she would save it for college. Laurie insisted she forget about college and told her to move somewhere to get away from Haddonfield. Before Laurie left, Allyson explained that she allowed Michael Myers to take priority over her life and it cost her her family. Her grandmother told her that if Karen hates her but is prepared for danger, she can live with that outcome. Later, Allyson managed to get into the honor society and she celebrated with her parents and Cameron at dinner that evening. The four talk about the Halloween dance the next night until Laurie finally arrived. She congratulated Allyson on her achievement and told her about her time in the honor society. However, when she sat down at the table, she began to cry and told them about seeing Michael Myers again as he was being transferred. She left the table and ran out with Karen showing little to no remorse for her causing an angry Allyson to chase after her grandmother.

She eventually reached Laurie and embraced and comforted her. Once she calmed down, Ray and Cameron helped her into her truck and she drove off. Karen then approached Allyson and told her all about her traumatic childhood with Laurie. Ray then comforted Karen and the four left the restaurant. The next night, at the Halloween dance, Oscar took plenty of photos of Cameron and Allyson dressed as Bonnie and Clyde and the couple enjoyed dancing for most of the night until Allyson got a call from Vicky and had to step outside. She told Allyson that she was about to put the kid she was babysitting to sleep and his parents wouldn't be home for hours so they could go to their house and bring some "alakazam" with them. Allyson laughed and told her they would be there soon. However, when she went back into the dance she caught Cameron making out with another girl. Distraught and heartbroken, she ran back out with Cameron not far behind. He apologized and she discovered that he was wasted and was about to leave him until she got another call from Laurie. Angry and drunk, Cameron threw her phone into a bowl of nacho cheese, causing Allyson to leave the dance completely, Oscar accompanying her.

Allyson finds Oscar's corpse

The two walked down the street and Allyson exclaimed that she was so stupid for falling for Cameron's charm but Oscar told her that she was the prettiest, nicest and coolest girl in school and anyone who doesn't appreciate her is a crazy person. She thanked him and he told her about a shortcut to get home faster. The two climbed into a field and when they landed, Oscar kissed Allyson without her permission and she angrily told him to back off. She called him pathetic for trying to force himself on her and she left to walk down the street. When still in earshot Allyson could hear Oscar's desperate cries for help as he was being murdered by an escaped Michael Myers but she took it as him simply calling her back. After a while, she gave in and returned to see what was wrong only to see Oscar's corpse hanging on a fence with the spike stabbed through his jaw. She then spotted Michael Myers walking into her view and ran for her life, screaming and banging on people's doors to let her into safety. She eventually managed to get the attention of people and they let her in to calm her down.

Allyson cries for help from the police car

Deputy Hawkins then reached the house along with Dr. Sartain and they took Allyson in the police car with them. The three drive around the neighborhood looking out for Michael and, when they spotted him, Hawkins rammed the car into him, rendering him unconscious. Sartain and Hawkins left the car to inspect the body but Hawkins was then stabbed by Sartain, who was one that caused Michael to escape in the first place. Sartain brought Michael back to the police car, beside Allyson, and took off his mask. He explained that his plan was to reunite Michael with Laurie and they drove off to her house. While driving, Allyson explained that she heard Michael say something and when Sartain stopped the car to hear what she had to say, Michael awakened and Allyson began to panic. However, he simply glanced at her and tried to push the car seat Sartain was sitting in and crush him. He dragged the doctor out and stomped on his head, killing him. This gave Allyson enough time to run and she ran into the woods leading to her grandmother's house.

She ran through the woods as fast as she could until she reached the back of her grandmother's house where she saw the many damaged mannequins and screamed in terror. By the time Allyson got inside, Michael had already arrived and had an intense scuffle with Laurie, managing to throw her off the balcony of her home. Allyson called out for her grandmother, which caught Michael's attention, but Karen quickly emerged from the basement and called out to Allyson and the two hid and tried their best to stay silent. The two began to panic when Michael managed to discover the entrance to the basement and attempted to pry the kitchen island off of its hinges. Karen quickly grabbed a gun from her childhood and pointed it at the entrance. When the island finally came off, she cried out for him to stop and exclaimed that she could not shoot. Michael then appeared at the entrance but Karen revealed to be simply acting and shot him in the face. Laurie then emerged from the darkness and fought him off again, managing to knock him into the basement, with Karen and Allyson quickly running out. However, Michael managed to grab Karen's leg and tried to pull her back down, quickly, Allyson noticed his bloody knife and used it to stab him in the wrist and knock him back into the basement. It was then sealed with iron bars and set on fire by Laurie, finally ending the nightmare.

The three generations of women then helped each other out of the house and Allyson managed to flag down a passing truck. The three held each other close and Allyson still held tightly onto the bloody knife.[1]

Chasing Michael

Allyson arrives at Haddonfield Memorial Hospital with Laurie and Karen, being approached by a doctor who recommends she should have a nurse look at her, to which Allyson assures him that she is fine and that the blood on her hands is not hers. Allyson sits on a staircase as Laurie is operated on and Karen comes to her to inform her that Laurie will recover, the two sharing an embrace as Allyson tearfully says that her father is gone. Allyson later goes into Laurie's room while the latter is sleeping and being watched over by Karen and then outside, where she recognizes an unconscious Hawkins as he is being lifted down the hallway and she spots Sartain's corpse in the morgue. An officer approaches Allyson to ask her a few questions and the pair go to another room, where Allyson admits that she was told she could never acknowledge the tragedy of the 1978 Halloween murders and that it as though her mother feared that her grandmother was correct about "the Boogeyman" being real. When asked by the officer of how Michael knew where Laurie lived, Allyson explains it was Sartain's obsession to see the pair together again and that he drove Michael to her.

Allyson angrily reacts to discovering Michael is still alive and is confronted by Cameron, who informs her that he is joining his dad and Tommy Doyle in going after Michael and that she is welcome to come, Allyson hugging him afterward. Karen at the same time is trying to get protection for Laurie, under the belief that Michael is coming for her, and Allyson calls for her. Karen tells Allyson to sit in Laurie's room before Cameron reveals their plan and Allyson states her intent to join them. Karen tells Allyson that they failed since Michael still lived despite the trap they set and repeats her order for Allyson to sit in Laurie's room before yelling. Allyson complies, watching over Laurie while wrapping a knife in a piece of clothing and telling her unconscious grandmother that the knife was for her whenever she needs it. She writes a note and leaves the room, going outside and getting a gun from Lonnie. Allyson remarks that Michael has haunted Haddonfield for 40 years and that they would hunt him down tonight.

Allyson sits in the backseat of Lonnie's car as they search for Michael and she asks him if he knew her father, Allyson laughing as Lonnie reflects on his past with Ray before beginning to cry as Cameron spots Tommy by Lindsey's car. Tommy states that Michael is there and the three come out of the car to begin looking for Lindsey, Allyson finding her and alerting the others. The three decide to go the Myers house after Lonnie concludes this is Michael's intended destination and they pull up outside, Allyson stating that the three will go in together. Lonnie reveals his intent to go in alone and Allyson asks if he expects her to sit by while he confronts the man who killed her father. She complies as Lonnie enters the house and Allyson and Cameron then hear a shot, the two leaving the car to enter the house. Allyson has her gun drawn and shoots a pumpkin in the closet after being startled by Cameron. The duo hear a noise upstairs and quietly move to the house's second story, where they find the corpses of Big John and Little John, who were murdered by Michael earlier in the night.

Allyson comes over to the corpses while Cameron leaves the room, Allyson removing a knife from Little John's chest. Cameron finds the body of his father and Michael comes out of a closet, grabbing him as he fires a shot, alerting Allyson. She calls out his name and sees Michael as he is attacking Cameron, Allyson trying to shoot Michael before he grabs her gun. Allyson stabs Michael with the knife she removed from Little John and is thrown down the staircase by Michael, breaking her leg in the process and letting out a scream of pain. Allyson and Cameron call for each other and Michael continues killing Cameron. As Michael begins to come downstairs, he turns to Cameron, and Allyson yells for Michael to leave him alone. Michael then snaps Cameron's neck and Allyson screams. Michael comes over to Allyson and she yells, "Do it!" twice before Karen stabs Michael in the back with a pitch fork. Allyson reacts with worry as Karen calls for Michael to come and get his mask from her and she runs away. After luring Michael into a trap where he is confronted by Haddonfield residents, Karen comes back to comfort Allyson, who asks her if Michael will always be here. A short time later, after Allyson leaves, Karen goes up to Judith's room and Michael stabs her to death.
