Today’s a very special genre anniversary as back on October 25, 1978 John Carpenter’s iconic Michael Myers made his feature film debut in Halloween. Originally set to be a sequel to Black Christmas, Carpenter’s slasher starring Scream Queen Jamie Lee Curtis pulled in a whopping $47 million at the boxoffice. It spawned several sequels, a Rob Zombie-directed remake, which also had a sequel hit back in 2009.
The 1978 independent slasher followed a psychotic murderer (Tony Moran) institutionalized since childhood escapes on a mindless rampage while his doctor, Dr. Sam Loomis (Donald Pleasence), chases him through the streets. Nancy Kyes, P.J. Soles and Charles Cyphers also starred.
