Halloween (1978)

Director: John Carpenter

Stars: Donald Pleasence, Jaime Lee Curtis, Nancy Kyes, P.J. Soles

A young Michael Myers stabs his older sister to death on Halloween night. A few decades later Michael escapes from the mental hospital that he grew up in. Michael is heading back to Haddonfield, IL to kill the last member of his family and anyone else that gets in the way.

That kid was screwed up somehow or born evil. He kill his sister while she was topless. Now that is nothing but classy. The parents come home to find little Michael Myers in the front yard wearing his Halloween costume, a clown, with a bloody kitchen knife in his hand.  What a great opener for a movie. Many years in a mental institution he escapes just to go and kill more people back in his hometown. The weird thing is that he drives there in a hospital gown. Who taught this, now man, to drive and how to get to his home town, and they do not wear hospital gowns in mental institutions.

The adult Michael Myers slowly walks around the town not being noticed, while killing off all of Laurie Strode’s friends and stalking her all in one day.  I can’t get that much done in a week. Michael was at least dedicated to his life's work.

Loser Laurie is babysitting on Halloween because she has nothing else better to do.  While she is watching one child, she has another kid dumped off on her to watch by her best friend,  Annie, so she can hook up. That's what friends are for.


I love this movie.  I saw this movie as a child (I don’t remember how old).  This is my first review and the hardest I think I’ll be doing.  This movie is loved by all who see it, if they don’t love it, then….well I‘m not going to say!  I watch this movie every Halloween and several times through the year. Enjoy!
