Sam Loomis even though the timeline ignores H4-H6. They could bring back dr. Loomis the way they did in H4. They could hire a Donald Pleasence look a like. They just have to hire someone with a very close resemblance to Donald Pleasence. They could have the actor wear scars and burn marks all over his face and hands. In my opinion the timeline should be between 1983 and 1986. There's no reason for Dimension Films to kill off Dr. Sam Loomis. Just because Donald Pleasence died in February of 1995 doesn't mean that Dr. Loomis has to die along with the actor. A good look a like that can act well is all that Dimension Films need.
