HALLOWEEN

In 1978, Halloween premiered in theaters. This is a classic slasher film about a masked killer who escapes from a mental institution and terrorizes a small town on Halloween night.

Nerdy Fact: The mask worn by the killer Michael Myers was actually a cheap William Shatner mask that was painted white and modified to look more creepy. Shatner later said he was honored by this and even wore the mask himself for trick or treating.
