John Carpenter's Halloween classic returns to theaters
One of the truly frightening Halloween films of all time is back on the big screen at the East Ridge 18 on Thursday evening: John Carpenter’s “Halloween.”
First premiering on Oct. 25, 1978, “Halloween” has gone on to be recognized as one of the seminal films in the horror genre—as well as making its production money back more than 200 times.
On Halloween night in 1963, in the fictional Midwestern town of Haddonfield, Illinois, a six-year-old Michael Myers dressed in a clown costume murders his older sister by stabbing her with a kitchen knife.
Fifteen years later, Michael Myers, age 21, escapes from a psychiatric hospital, returns home, and stalks Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) and her friends. Simple? Yes. Effective? Yes. Scary? You better believe it!
