Fear the Boogeyman. Horror’s most iconic villains are taking over The Classic for this year’s all-nighter starting with John Carpenter’s classic slasher.
Fifteen years after murdering his sister on Halloween night 1963, Michael Myers escapes from a mental hospital and returns to his small hometown of Haddonfield to kill again.
Seminal Scream Queen, Jamie Lee Curtis stars as Laurie Strode, the unlucky teen who Myers chooses to stalk.
Often mimicked with sequels and remakes, but none come close to the original "night he came home".
