Clothes make or break the man here, and after all Michael Meyer, a privileged albeit secret mental health patient, a criminal unsure of himself at first…a special care for wrongful indemnity from the consequences of a comman man. Leaves which rustle, legs which kick, and a little criminal mental illness here, a lot of criminal mental illness there stands amidst a more traditional clothesline of linen plotting to make this film more frightening than the money and jewelry taken from victims here. Jamie Lee Curtis stars as a sure bet for this first of the traditional, likely bordering on classic by now Halloween I. As the doctor of the mentally ill small home, farm town boy, now grown said, “The kid came home ~ Her dad a local cop,” and the April fool that happened to the family next left him as one of the criminal insane, instituted for a lifetime. Those the criminal insane drove to a more hiding madness, forted them protection of no great treasure. But those of the rest of his family who once dwelt among this madman who destroyed everyone, all gone now. A grown young man, by now of the most frightening, and not bad for an incidental independent film. Haddonfield, Illinois, not the best midwestern town to live in for a brother who slashed his own sister to death, he returns later to finish the job. A series of violent crimes do need to convince the inhabitants of the town that Warren County Smith’s Grove Sanitarium under strict eternal lock down, the better dwelling for the now grown violent, criminal, and young man who wears prosthetic gear among other strange clothing material while committing the murders. The Meyer family, heavily involved during the return of the man as more murders committed, but now among themselves need not wonder why they now feel trapped by an original crime covered over and justified. But the good daughter of someone else now suffers a fear all her own. While trying to protect innocent, little children from corruption, the forces of evil seem to battle them even harder. Whether dressed up in or out of costume, the heart effects every larger matter.
Halloween On October 30, 1978 ~ A young boy stabs his own sister on Halloween eve. That little boy must commit himself to a lifespan of institutional imprisonment, of at the very least, minimum security. “The only thing that really bothers me is their gibberish…” A wise person, and no April fool here, his doctor never ever wants him as a violent criminal ill person to get out of the mental institution again. “Since when do they let them just walk around? Shall we go up to the hospital, and…” “Wait!’ “We have to do something, or we’ll all be victims of that crazy man.” A lot of strange creatures creep around and whether in or out of costume, on Halloween night, every one has a sinister part they play. Some for good. Others for evil. “Mind your own business!” Yell out the ones who have plans not to bless the children on a dark night, but rather to harm. But too late, he reaches through the auto window and helps himself. The town works double overtime to stop the evil before darkness working through more secret evil on the side of the madman destroys everyone. John Carpenter directs this 1978 Falcon International Productions release, distributed by Compass International.
