The ur-slasher movie. Masked Michael Myers chases the original “final girl” Laurie Strode, leaving a trail of tropes recycled by the Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street and other franchises. True to the genre it created, the killer keeps coming back; a 10th Halloween sequel is expected in 2020.
