All of the actors wore their own clothes, since there was no money for a costume department. Jamie Lee Curtis went to J.C. Penney for Laurie Strode's wardrobe. She spent less than one hundred dollars for the entire set. She shot the film while on hiatus from the sitcom Operation Petticoat: Operation Petticoat (1977). See more »
(Extended version) Dr. Loomis and a nurse from the Smith's Grove Sanitarium walk down the hall and discuss who was supposed to be watching Michael Myers when he escaped and the camera pans down to Dr. Loomis' loafers as they enter the destroyed room. In the next scene, walking to his car with Dr. Wynn, Dr. Loomis is clearly wearing brown dress shoes that click as he walk - something the loafers did not do in the previous scene. See more »
It's totally insane. We have three new cheers to learn in the morning, the game is in the afternoon, I have to get my hair done at five, and the dance is at eight! I'll be totally wiped out!
I don't think you have enough to do tomorrow.

Halloween is one of the best examples of independent film. It's very well made and has more psychological elements to it than you might realize at first glance. It is a simple movie told very well. The music is perfect and is one of the most haunting scores... If you haven't seen this movie yet, you must check it out. The cast is all terrific. I wish they had never made sequel after sequel. The first one was by far the best and should have ended like it did without having a sequel. It was fun to see Jamie Lee Curtis in the movie. She hasn't seemed to age (she's just as gorgeous today, without the hairdo and seventies clothes). The scenes through the mask are one of the scariest things ever!
