Summary
On October 31, 1963, six-year-old Michael Myers brutally stabs his sister Judith to death with a kitchen knife at their home in Haddonfield, Illinois. He is sent to Smith's Grove-Warren County Sanitarium and placed under the care of psychiatrist Dr. Sam Loomis (Donald Pleasance). Loomis suspects that there is more to Myers than meets the eye and plans to have him committed indefinitely, despite the fact that Michael seems docile and does not speak a word. At the age of 21, Myers escapes from Smith's Grove while being transferred, and returns to Haddonfield with Loomis in pursuit. While Loomis tries to convince authorities of the boy's evil nature, Meyers goes on a murderous rampage while he stalks and terrorizes a young woman who caught his attention
