Orrin's death

Orrin Gateway is a character in Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, played by Eric Hart.


Orrin and his brother Alan often came to the Oasis bar owned by their friend Earl Ford. Their lives were normal for the most part until October 31, 1978 when Michael Myers killed Orrin's nephew. They never got over this death and wanted revenge for it. Ten years later, they were drinking at Earl's bar when they learned that Haddonfield citizens were to get inside as soon as possible. Earl wanted to find out what was going on and Orrin, his brother and Unger came along with him.

Once they arrived at the police station, they learned that Michael Myers was back and so Orrin and his friends decided it was time for revenge and searched around town for him. Orrin thought he found the murderer in the bushes and he, along with his friends, got out of the truck and shoot at the bushes. Thinking the nightmare was over, Orrin checked the body and discovered that it was not Myers but Ted Hollister.

The group continued their search and eventually heard the alarm at the Haddonfield Elementary School. They drove over there and found Rachel Carruthers and her foster sister Jamie Lloyd running away and told them that Myers was inside. Rachel told them they needed to get out of the town and the men decided to let the police handle it. As they were driving away from town, none of them had noticed that Myers was underneath the truck. Michael climbed in the back bed of the truck. Orrin tried to shoot Michael, but was too late. Michael stabbed Orrin in the back with a butcher knife, killing him instantly.

Michael then killed Orrin's brother Big Al by stabbing him through his stomach, piercing and gutting him, and pushed both corpses off the truck.
