Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers was released in October 1988 to critical and commercial success. It grossed over $17 million worldwide, $6,831,250 in its opening weekend alone. Harris stated:
“It was fun for me. I knew we were making a movie and I knew that it was make believe. I was more worried about being a good, little actress and being able to cry and scream really good. I think everybody made such an amazing effort to make sure that I knew that it wasn’t real. In between takes we would joke around and it was just fun. It didn’t really bother me until I got to be older.”
Harris returned the following year for the sequel, titled Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers, which was not as successful as its predecessor. Harris portrayed Jamie Lloyd once again, but her character was mute for the first half of Halloween 5 owing to events in the previous film.

Reviews were mixed, and some critics cited the Christmastime release for such a violent film as a reason for its somewhat underwhelming box office. 1992 saw Harris participate in the pilot for the potential CBS series 1775, although it was not picked up.
