Halloween (1978) Blu-ray 35th Anniversary Edition
Halloween is the story of a man, Michael Myers, considered pure evil by his psychologist, Dr. Loomis (Donald Pleasance). On Halloween night, at the tender age of six, young Michael Myers took a butcher knife and stabbed his sister to death. Following the incident Myers slipped into a trance where he was completely unresponsive to external stimuli. Myers was considered clinically insane and sentenced to psychiatric care until his 21st birthday, where he would be brought before a judge for sentencing in the murder of his sister. When Loomis shows up to bring Myers in front of the judge he discovers that Myers has spawned the escape of all patients in the mental hospital he had been committed to.
Myers steals Loomis' car and heads back to his home town of Haddonfield. It's not long before he sets his eyes upon teen babysitter Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis in her debut movie role) and begins a pursuit that will not stop until she is dead...
