Halloween The Movie

Updated on March 5, 2008

About Halloween the Movie

The very first Halloween movie was released in 1978. Halloween the movie would spawn imitation films, but no other horror movies have ever held up to the precedent set by Halloween. The popular movie website Moviefone rated Halloween as the best horror movie ever.

Halloween the movie centers around Michael Myers. Michael has been put away in a mental institution since he was a child. Why? Because when he was just six years old, Michael stabbed his sister to death on Halloween night. Fifteen years later, Michael escapes near Halloween night. Will he kill again?

No one knows. His psychiatrist, Dr. Loomis, thinks that Michael is headed back to Michael's home in Haddonfield on Lampkin Lane. Dr. Loomis must get back to Haddonfield and warn authorities before Halloween, before there is another gruesome murder.
