It was a cold Halloween night in 1963 when six year old Michael Audrey Myers brutally murdered his 17-year-old sister, Judith Margaret Myers. Fifteen years later he escapes from prison... He returns to his quiet hometown of Haddonfield, Illinois, where he follows three young women. Seventeen-year-old Laurie Strode is a quiet bookworm, preferring babysitting over parties. Her friends, Annie and Lynda, are busy thinking about the fun of Halloween night. Little do they know, Michael Myers has come home to kill. Their only hope is Dr. Loomis, Michael's childhood psychiatrist and town sheriff Leigh Brackett, who happens to be Annie's father. The duo search the streets, but the bogeyman is close to his prize for the night: Laurie!
