On Halloween 1997, ten-year-old Michael Myers stabs his sister Judith Myers to death and bludgeons her boyfriend Steve Haley to death. Other than his parents, the only person he spares is his baby sister Angel Myers.
Fifteen years later, Michael escapes from Smith's Grove Sanitarium during a prison transfer and makes his way back home to Haddonfield Illinois, leaving a bloody trail of corpses in his wake. Pursuing him is his former doctor, Sam Loomis, the only person who knows that Michael is nothing but true evil.
In Haddonfield, Michael steals a Halloween mask and a boiler suit, as well as the tombstone from his sister's grave. He then begins to stalk high school student Laurie Strode and her friends, Annie Brackett and Lynda Van Der Klok. Loomis also shows up and teams up with Annie's father, Sheriff Tom Brackett, to put an end to Michael's rampage. Unknown to everyone but Michael, Laurie Strode is actually Angel Myers.
While Laurie is babysitting little Tommy Doyle and Lindsay Wallace, Michael stalks her friends as well as her parents, Morgan and Cynthia Strode, before murdering them in a gruesome and brutal fashion.
Eventually, Laurie discovers the bodies of her friends in the house across the street and is attacked by Michael, who chases her back across the street. After an intense final chase, Laurie seemingly kills Michael and then sends Tommy and Lindsay to get help. They are spotted by Loomis, who arrives at the Doyle house just in time to save Laurie by shooting Michael. However Michael isn't defeated until Laurie stabs him and he falls into the swimming pool. But when Loomis goes outside to check the body, Michael has vanished, meaning he's still out there.
The renaming of the Epiphany to Inferno is a reference to a working title for the original, 'The Spacebound Inferno.'
WARNING: CONTAINS SPOILERS
In order to distinguish them from the originals, the films were given new titles; 007: Operation Thunderball, 007: For Queen and Country and 007: You Only Die Once.
Plot: British secret agent James Bond 007 is sent to the Casino Royale in France to bankrupt a man named Le Chiffre, who is suspected of funding terrorist activities. He is in fact trying to win back the funds he lost in a bad gambling move, which belonged to his employers, SMERSH. Bond, a noted baccarat master, challenges Le Chiffre and also encounters an old flame, Valerie Mathis, who is investigating Le Chiffre's dealings, and his American contact, Clarence Leiter. Bond defeats Le Chriffe and prepares to leave France and Le Chiffre behind him, believing that Le Chiffre will be 'retired' by his Soviet employers. However, Le Chiffre kidnaps Mathis and lures Bond into a trap, leading to a shootout with Le Chiffre's men. With both men exhausted, they sit down in Bond's hotel room, before Le Chiffre takes Mathis as a human shield, holding a blade to her. As he tries to exit with her, she pushes herself away, allowing Bond to fatally shoot Le Chiffre.
Charles K. Feldman, the producer, had acquired the film rights and had attempted to get Casino Royale made as an Eon Productions Bond film; however, Feldman and the producers of the Eon series, Albert R. Broccoli and Harry Saltzman, failed to come to terms. Feldman then went to MGM to produce his independent Bond film, releasing it in 1967.
James Bond is played by Peter Sellers, well known for his comedic roles, who was a fan of the novels. His previous comic roles allowed to be a more comic Bond, while still mantaining the character's more serious traits. For the role of Le Chiffre, the producers immediately wanted Orson Welles, who had been tipped to play Blofeld in the official EON series, but ultimately did not. Ursula Andress, who played Honey Ryder, the first Bond girl in 1959's Dr. No, portrayed Bond's main love interest, Valerie Mathis.
