The Kill Counter: John Carpenter's Halloween

Ever wondered how many people lose their lives in any particular horror movie? Well, we've got you covered with THE KILL COUNTER, our hit series takes out the guesswork and counts every death on (and sometimes off) screen. Break out your calculator and try to keep up! On this week's episode, we take on writer-director John Carpenter's original slasher classic HALLOWEEN starring Donald Pleasence and Jamie Lee Curtis.

Personally, my favorite kill from the original HALLOWEEN will always be the opening murder of Judith by her little brother Michael. Maybe it's the long tracking shot or maybe it's the fact that this is a kid killing a (naked) girl. Not sure, but it's as powerful today as it was back in the day, I assume. Which kill from John Carpenter's HALLOWEEN was YOUR favorite? Let us know below!

Here's the synopsis:

On a cold Halloween night in 1963, six year old Michael Myers brutally murdered his 17-year-old sister, Judith. He was sentenced and locked away for 15 years. But on October 30, 1978, while being transferred for a court date, a 21-year-old Michael Myers steals a car and escapes Smith's Grove. He returns to his quiet hometown of Haddonfield, Illinois, where he looks for his next victims.

HALLOWEEN was directed by Carpenter from a screenplay he co-wrote along with producer Debra Hill. The film stars Pleasence, Curtis, P. J. Soles, Nancy Loomis, and Nick Castle as The Shape. If you don't own the flick on Blu-ray, you can go ahead and snag one via Amazon right over HERE.
