It boasts one of the most terrifying Halloween masks of all time along with a soundtrack that chills to the very bone. John Carpenter’s Halloween, released in 1978, follows a murderous Michael Myers (Nick Castle) as he stalks babysitter Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) on Halloween night. A whole 45 years since the original film came out, it continues to be one of the most iconic horrors of all time.
It’s no wonder the timeless concept and terrifying antagonist has spawned multiple reboots and remakes over the years, with “final girl” Jamie Lee returning for one last confrontation in last year’s Halloween Ends.
