Cult of Thorn
The Cult of Thorn was a cult of druids whose activity spans over several millennia. The nature of cult is different, depending on which version seen of Halloween 6.
The Thorn cult places a curse on a child from their tribe, currently Michael Myers. The child is then possessed by Thorn who gives the child superhuman abilities, and controls them to kill every member of their family as a sacrifice to keep the cult alive. They planned to place the curse on Danny Strode after Michael made his final sacrifice. A rogue part of the cult had different intention, but they were murdered by Thorn possessing Michael.The Cult aids Thorn as he kills the family members of his host. They also seem to care for him while he’s in his resting periods. The Man in Black leads the cult members and takes orders from Thorn. Dr. Wynn, the Man in Black during Michael’s possession, and several other cult members decided to try and harness the supernatural abilities that Thorn possesses.

Curse of Thorn
The Curse of Thorn is often associated with a constellation that could appear during Halloween. In the time of the Druids, to prevent mass death among the tribes, one family was chosen to be possessed by Thorn. It would then sacrificially murder it‘s host entire family on the night of Samhain (All Hallow's Eve), which in turn it would promise to spare their community from disastrous events such as plague and drought. This possession also appears to give the cursed inhuman strength and immunity from death.
Mark of Thorn
The Mark of Thorn was a symbol that appeared on the wrist of those involved with the cult, or cursed by them. It could be seen on Michael's wrist, and, in the Producer's Cut, it could be seen on Dr. Wynn.
