Horror • R • 1978 • 1 hr 31 min
It's not the first slasher but it's definitely the blueprint if it wasn't for the thing this would be carpenter's magnum opus
A classic. The acting is kinda funny though.
An excellent horror film from the mind of John Carpenter. This movie was a fun watch as it kept the suspense throughout. The score is great.
My vote for the best modern horror movie.
The original Halloween is a really good low budget slasher. Although, the caracter of Lydia doesn't work for me at all.
Absolute classic and something I watch anytime I want to binge Slashers
Have you ever wondered what it would look like if William Shatner stabbed someone? I have incredible news for you!
Not much to say. It's fucking great as always.
An important puzzle piece of horror movie history. A legendary slasher that keeps Michael Myers in our wicked little hearts.
This might be a pretty problematic take, but this is the greatest horror film of all time. Myers is the definition of evil. Amazing film.
Fifteen years after murdering his sister on Halloween Night 1963, Michael Myers escapes from a mental hospital and returns to the small town of Haddonfield, Illinois to kill again.
After failing to kill stubborn survivor Laurie and taking a bullet or six from former psychiatrist Dr. Sam Loomis, Michael Myers has followed Laurie to the Haddonfield Memorial Hospital, where she's been admitted for Myers' attempt on her life. The institution proves to be particularly suited to serial killers, however, as Myers cuts, stabs and slashes his way through hospital staff to reach his favorite victim.
Dr. Dan Challis and murder victim daughter Ellie Grimbridge uncover a terrible plot by small-town mask maker Conal Cochran, a madman planning a Halloween mass murder utilizing an ancient Celtic ritual. The ritual involves a boulder stolen from Stonehenge, the use of Silver Shamrock masks, and a triggering device contained in a television commercial — all designed to kill millions of children.
The apparently comatose Michael Myers is being transferred from one hospital to another, but he wakes up when the ambulance crew talk about his surviving niece, Jamie. After slaughtering his attendants, Myers sets out to find his one living relative who is, fortunately, being cared for by a kind and resourceful foster sister named Rachel. Meanwhile, the ever-cautious Dr. Loomis remains on the killer's path.
After lying in a coma for a year, Michael Myers awakens and stalks his way back to his small hometown in Illinois, intent on killing his niece, Jamie, who has been confined to a mental institution since Michael's last attempt to slay her. Suspecting a psychic link between Michael and Jamie, psychiatrist Dr. Sam Loomis joins forces with Sheriff Ben Meeker and attempts to stop Michael's latest rampage.
Six years ago, Michael Myers terrorized the town of Haddonfield, Illinois. He and his niece, Jamie Lloyd, have disappeared. Jamie was kidnapped by a bunch of evil druids who protect Michael Myers. And now, six years later, Jamie has escaped after giving birth to Michael's child. She runs to Haddonfield to get Dr. Loomis to help her again.
Two decades after surviving a massacre on October 31, 1978, former baby sitter Laurie Strode finds herself hunted by persistent knife-wielder Michael Myers. Laurie now lives in Northern California under an assumed name, where she works as the headmistress of a private school. But it's not far enough to escape Myers, who soon discovers her whereabouts.
