On Halloween night 1963, in the town of Haddonfield, Illinois, six-year-old Michael Myers, dressed in a clown costume, stabs his older sister Judith to death with a knife in their home. Fifteen years later, Michael is now 21, and on October 30, 1978, Michael’s psychiatrist, Dr. Samuel Loomis, and his colleague, Marion Chambers, arrive at Smith’s Grove Sanitarium to escort Michael to court. Noticing that the patients are wandering about, Loomis gets out of the car to investigate, allowing Michael, who has escaped, to steal Loomis’s car. Returning home to Haddonfield, Michael kills a mechanic for his uniform and steals a mask, some knives, and some rope from a local hardware store.

The following day, on Halloween, Michael stalks Laurie Strode. Throughout the day, Laurie notices Michael following her, but her friends Annie Brackett and Lynda Van der Klok dismiss her concerns. Loomis arrives in Haddonfield in search of Michael. After discovering that Judith Myers’ headstone has been stolen from the local cemetery, he meets with Annie’s father, Sheriff Leigh Brackett. The two begin their search at Michael’s former home, where Loomis tries to warn the skeptical sheriff about the danger Michael poses, explaining that Michael is pure evil and capable of further violence, despite years of catatonia. Sheriff Brackett patrols the streets while Loomis waits and watches the house, expecting Michael to return there…
