Halloween is a 1978 American independent slasher film directed and scored by John Carpenter, co-written with producer Debra Hill. The movie starred Donald Pleasence and Jamie Lee Curtis in her film debut. The film was the first installment in what has become the Halloween franchise, the largest grossing horror franchise in the history of cinema.
The movie was produced and funded by Moustapha Akkad, a film maker who was know for classic epic films such movies as “Lion of the Desert” and “The Message” which he produced and Directed. The torch of the franchise to this day is carried by his son Malek Akkad who is responsible for turning it into a global franchise not just in film but merchandise and theme park attractions.
The film is set in the fictional Midwestern town of Haddonfield, Illinois. On Halloween night in 1963, Michael Myers murders his sister. He escapes on October 30, 1978 from Smith’s Grove Sanitarium, and returns home to kill again. The next day, Halloween, Michael stalks teenager Laurie Strode. Michael’s psychiatrist, Dr. Sam Loomis, knowing Michael’s intentions, goes to Haddonfield to find and stop him.
Halloween was produced on a budget of $300,000 and grossed $47 million at the box office in the United States, $23 million internationally, for a total of $70 million worldwide, equivalent to roughly $300 million today, becoming one of the most profitable independent films ever made.
The movie is credited as the film that inspired a long line of slasher films. Halloween had many imitators and originated several clichés found in low-budget horror films of the 1980s and 1990s. Unlike many of its imitators, Halloween contains little graphic violence and gore. It was one of the first horror films to introduce the concept of the killer dying and coming back to life again within the same film. In 2006, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”.
Several of Halloween’s techniques and plot elements have become standard slasher movie tropes. Halloween spawned seven sequels and is in the process of being rebooted by Malek Akkad of Trancas International Films, BlumHouse films and for the first time since the original 1978 movie… John Carpenter has returns as a producer on the movie.
