On Halloween night 1963, in Haddonfield, Illinois, 6-year-old Michael Myers (Will Sandin), dressed in a clown costume and mask, inexplicably stabs his older sister Judith (Sandy Johnson) to death with a kitchen knife in their home. On October 30, 1978, Michael's child psychiatrist, Dr. Sam Loomis (Donald Pleasence), and his colleague Marion Chambers (Nancy Stephens) arrive at Warren County Smith's Grove Sanatarium to take 21-year-old Michael (Nick Castle) to court to determine if he will walk free or be imprisoned for life. Michael steals the car and escapes. Loomis, knowing Michael’s intentions, pursues him. Returning home to Haddonfield, Michael kills a mechanic for his uniform and steals a white mask from a local store. Read more on Wikipedia.
