It was 1978. Leaves were falling, children were laughing and Michael Myers escapes from a sanitarium fifteen years after killing his sister on Halloween. A little town called Haddonfield was in for a big shock the night HE came home. Thirty years and nine films later, the legacy and legend of Michael Myers, The Shape and Halloween are now inseparable. Before Jason, before Freddy, before Pinhead and before remakes, John Carpenter and Debra Hill set out to make a low-budget thriller about babysitters in danger. The resulting film would go on to haunt audiences all over the world and forever change the meaning and menace of Halloween. Now, Andy and John walk the bloody streets of Haddonfield to backtrack the phenomenon of the Halloween films and the continuing influence over horror filmmaking today.
