Halloween (1978) (Movie Podcast) | SMF

The original Halloween is one on the movies that started the horror/slasher genre. Does it stand the test of time and when did you first see it?



On October 31, 1963, six-year-old Michael Myers butchers his fifteen-year-old sister Judith. Fifteen years later on the anniversary of the brutal murder, Michael escapes from Smith's Grove Sanitarium, a mental health facility and detainment center for the criminally insane, and returns to his hometown of Haddonfield, Illinois. Before long, Michael becomes fixated on high school students, Laurie Strode and her friends, Annie and Lynda. Meanwhile Myers' psychiatrist, Dr. Samuel Loomis, and skeptical Sheriff Leigh Brackett comb the town in search of the mentally unstable inmate.

Halloween is a 1978 American independent slasher film directed and scored by John Carpenter, and co-written with producer Debra Hill. It stars Donald Pleasence, Jamie Lee Curtis, P. J. Soles and Nancy Kyes.
