Halloween The Movie

Directed by John Carpenter, Halloween The Movie is best known as Carpenter’s Halloween. This is a horror film of 1978 set in the fictional Midwest town of Haddonfield, Illinois. The film stars Donald Pleasence as Dr. Sam Loomis, Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode, and Nick Castle as Michael Myers.

This 91-minute film centers around Michael Myers's escape from a psychiatric hospital, his murder of three teenagers, and Sam Loomis's attempts to track and kill Myers. The story moves thus: On Halloween 1963, the small town of Haddonfield is shocked when six-year-old Michael Myers returns from trick-or-treating and for some unknown reason stabs his sister to death with a big kitchen knife and is found by his parents staring into space with the bloody knife in his hand. Sent to a mental institution, Michael spends the next 15 years just sitting, still staring into space despite the best efforts of his Doctor, Dr. Samuel Loomis.

There, Laurie Stode, Micheal's younger sister finds that Michael is stalking her during the day (at school, at her home etc - but she doesn't know who he is.) The tragedy continues with each of them disappearing one by one.
