Norma Elrod was the wife of Howard Elrod and lived next door to Alice Martin. When Michael and Judith Myers were children, she often babysat them.[1] On October 31st 1978, Michael broke into the Elrod home to steal a butcher knife while Norma watched the news of the murders.

Alice heard her from next door and presumed that Mr. Elrod got tired of her always picking on him and began beating her.[2]

Notes and trivia

  • In the television version of Halloween II, the scene is edited to imply that Mrs. Elrod is murdered or at least frightened by Michael Myers.
  • Halloween (2018) features an homage to Mrs. Elrod, in which Michael sneaks into a woman's house and murders her with a hammer. The woman has the same hair style with rollers, and wears a similar pink robe. She was also making a sandwich with ham much like Mrs. Elrod. Although she was revealed not to be this character, a "Mr. Elrod" was later mentioned by Oscar.
