As we come upon the 35th Anniversary of John Carpenter's seminal classic Halloween, something unexpected has hit the interwebs in the fashion of the first ever Panaglide test by Dean Cundey and Ray Stella back in 1978 before Halloween’s principal photography began.

The footage was uploaded to Vimeo by a user named Billy Kirkus, who goes on to describe what is presented in the clip below.

"This is the first ever Panaglide test by Dean Cundey and Ray Stella back in 1978; right before Halloween's principal photography began. Filmed outside and inside the Panavision studio. Halloween was the 4th movie to use this system."

Kirkus also urges readers to contact Trancas Films and let them know you want to see the rest of the unseen Halloween footage.
