Dr. Terence Wynn a.k.a. The Man in Black or Nurse Wynn (January 26, 1926 – October 31, 1995) was a fictional character in the Halloween film series. He was portrayed by Robert Phalen in Halloween, Don Shanks in Halloween 5, Mitchell Ryan in Halloween 6 and by Sybil Danning in Rob Zombie's Halloween
Despite being the administrator of Smith's Grove - Warren County Sanitarium, Dr. Wynn only makes a short appearance in the first Halloween movie. In it, he is seen walking with Dr. Loomis towards his car. During the scene, Dr. Loomis expresses his anger that Michael Myers was able to escape from the facility the previous night. Dr. Wynn says that Michael couldn't have gotten far because he can't drive. Ironically, Dr. Loomis says " He was doing very well last night! Maybe, someone around here gave him lessons." This is a humorous exchange for fans that have watched the sixth movie in the series because it is revealed that Dr. Wynn has been watching over Michael since his incarceration and is probably the person who did teach Michael how to drive.
Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers (1989)
Although fans did not know it at the time, Dr. Wynn made his next appearance in the Halloween franchise in Halloween 5. In his role as Michael's guardian, Dr. Wynn leaves Smith's Grove for Haddonfield. In the climax of the movie, Dr. Wynn, as the Man in Black, machine guns the entire Haddonfield police force and takes Michael and Jamie Lloyd back to the Smith's Grove sanitarium.
Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers (1995)
While hinted at in the previous film, the Thorn cult is greatly expanded upon in the sixth movie in the series. In this film, fans find out that Dr. Wynn is the head of a cult that cursed Michael into killing his whole family, thus explaining why he is in constant pursuit of his sister and niece. Also, it is shown that Wynn and Michael share the same Thorn tattoo. What happens to Dr. Wynn at the end depends on which version of the movie a person watches. In the theatrical cut, Michael kills him in an operating room with other doctors from Smith's Grove. In the producer's cut, Tommy Doyle paralyzes Michael with rune stones. Later, Dr. Loomis approaches who he thinks is Michael Myers. Much to Loomis's surprise, Michael has switched clothes with Wynn and left him lying there while he (Michael) escapes. Loomis takes the mask off Wynn, a disoriented Wynn grabs Loomis's arm and says, "It's your game now, Dr. Loomis." Loomis then looks at his wrist and sees that the Thorn tattoo is now on his arm, symbolizing his new role as Michael's protector. Dr. Wynn is not featured in the subsequent films, which retcon the previous three films out of continuity and thus the Wynn/Thorn plotline. However, he is seen in the Halloween comics.
Rob Zombie's Halloween
In Rob Zombie's remake of the original film, Wynn also appears briefly, but is a female nurse not a male doctor. In the film, she is asked to watch a young Michael Myers while Dr. Loomis walks Mrs. Myers to her car. Wynn is not paying proper attention to Michael when he pulls a fork from his food tray and brutally stabs her in the neck.
