Synopsis
Six year-old Michael Myers seems like such a nice boy until he stabs his teenage sister to death on Halloween night. After fifteen years locked up in a mental institution, Michael escapes, dons a creepy mask and launches a killing spree in his home town of Haddonfield. Only the boy's psychiatrist Dr. Loomis and beautiful young Laurie Strode stand in the way of an indestructible psychopath with supernatural strength and an unquenchable thirst for blood.
