Mrs. Blankenship was a member of the Cult of Thorn who appeared to be a very quiet woman that owned a boarding house in which Tommy Doyle and Beth lived.

Babysitting Michael

Back on October 31, 1963 she babysat Michael Myers and his babysitter. She told Michael the story behind Halloween and he said to her that he heard voices that told him to kill his older sister Judith. Mrs. Blankenship did nothing to stop him and quite possibly sent him across the street to do the voice's evil bidding by killing his sister.

32 Years Later

Mrs. Blankenship told the same story of Halloween to Danny Strode who, like Michael, also heard voices telling him to kill. Later that night, Mrs. Blankenship was told by Terence Wynn to take Steven Lloyd while he dealt with Sam Loomis, Tommy Doyle and Kara Strode. She did as asked and when she was approached by Kara, Mrs. Blankenship revealed her true self.[1]

5 Years Later

The following information is only relevant to the Chaos Comics series.

Mrs. Blankenship learned that former sheriff Leigh Brackett had returned to Haddonfield, and set out with some of the cult members to find and stop Brackett and Tommy. She found them in the outskirts of town and captured both men. She had them taken to Haddonfield Church and talked with the priest about what to do with them. Blankenship thought they should both be killed as they knew too much. The Priest told her that they should be worried about Michael but he was of no concern to Blankenship as she thought they could contain him. Later that night, she came back to the church to discover that it was destroyed and the only survivors were Michael and Tommy. The cult then placed Tommy in Smith's Grove. It is unknown what happened to Blankenship after this incident.[2]


Notes & Trivia

  • Mrs. Blankenship's name is a reference to a character named Minnie Blankenship, in Halloween III: Season of the Witch.
  • It can be assumed that Mrs. Blankenship was killed by Michael along with all the other cult members during the operating room massacre in the theatrical cut of Halloween 6, although the Chaos Comics are in fact considered non-canon sequels, as they tie the 4-6 movies to H20.
