I have a Party City version of Michael Myers H2 and the power wire inside him is cut where it connects to the power jack port. Could someone w the same prop post up a couple of pics of the power wire under his coverall where it leads into the plug jack and any speakers. Thanks !

I don't have that prop but there should only be 2 wires from the power jack, usually a red and a black. The red wire (positive) should be connected to the rear of the jack, the black wire (negative) goes to the bottom or the side. There should not be any power wires going directly to the speakers, those would come from the circuit board.

You were correct w the wire connecting to the side of the port jack. But there is another set of wires that spur off from a shrink tube splice that are also present. Could it be from a try me button port jack that was severed also (second picture) ?

Hard to tell from the pics exactly whats going on there but it appears that someone has modified the original wiring. I would just tape up the extra set of loose wires and make sure that pos/neg is going to the circuit board from the jack.

Thanks ! The weird thing is that there’s no manufacturer listed on the box or on the manual anywhere and when I asked party city they didn’t know who makes it either so I couldn’t email them for a wiring schematic.

Chances are you wouldn't get a schematic even if you knew who made it. And like I said, it does appear that someone modified that wiring.
