E. W. Hoffman is a character in Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers.
Doctor E. W. Hoffman was transferring Michael Myers and had Attendant J. Black sign some papers for them to get approved. He told Black that he hoped Michael would never wake up and would die out. The next day, he was filling out Michael's report when Sam Loomis stormed in, asking why he was not notified about Myers being transferred. Hoffman told Loomis that Michael was a federal patient and prisoner and thus was subject to federal law. Loomis replied that Myers was more than evil. He also noted that Myers caused much pain to people ten years earlier. Hoffman told Loomis that he was the one in need of mental help, then answered a telephone call about Michael Myers and an accident that the latter was involved in. Loomis then left the office as quickly as he could. Hoffman followed Loomis to the accident site, where the police told them of the status. Hoffman believed that everyone was dead, but Loomis knew otherwise and checked. Hoffman told Loomis to give the troopers a chance to check things out, but Loomis told him that Michael was not there and that he was not going to be killed that easily. Loomis then left for Haddonfield.
