halloweenOn this day in 1978 (34 years ago!!), a little company called Compass International released a little movie called HALLOWEEN and holiday horror history was made. Set in a small mid-western town on Halloween night, the tale of a rampant psychopathic killer (who may or may not be the incarnation of the boogie-man) started a parade of teen slasher films that continues to this day. The brainchild of writer/director JOHN CARPENTER, the HALLOWEEN cast included JAMIE LEE CURTIS, DONALD PLEASENCE, P.J. SOLES and TONY MORAN. Despite several sequels, a remakeĀ  and countless copy-cats, HALLOWEEN remains a fright-fest classic.

The original HALLOWEEN is available now on DVD
