Inspiring countless nightmares and even more imitations, John Carpenter’s Halloween has been terrifying audiences ever since its original release in 1978. Now—to mark its 40th anniversary and on the eve of the latest sequel/reboot/whatever—this horror classic can be seen once again as it should be: late at night, in a theater, in the dark.

On a cold Halloween night in 1963, six-year-old Michael Myers murdered his teenaged sister. Fifteen years later, he escapes from the asylum and returns home, where he begins looking for his next victims. Soon, as the night grows darker, cries of “Trick or treat” will be drowned out by shrieks of terror, as Michael stalks a group of unsuspecting babysitters and their boyfriends. In the end, only Jamie Lee Curtis’ iconic Final Girl, Laurie Strode, remains, fighting for her life against one of the movies' greatest boogeymen.

“Halloween is a visceral experience — we aren't seeing the movie, we're having it happen to us. It's frightening. Maybe you don't like movies that are really scary: Then don't see this one. ”

– Roger Ebert
