In 1978, Creator/JohnCarpenter and producer Debra Hill made '''''Halloween''''', a low-budget independent horror film. The success of this film popularized the SlasherMovie genre and inspired other similar franchises such as ''Franchise/FridayThe13th'' - and it also turned the film into the first of a major horror film franchise.

A new installment in the franchise, tentatively [[StockSubtitle titled]] '''''Halloween Returns''''', is currently in production and set for a 2016 release. The film is speculated to have no association with the Creator/RobZombie films and may provide a brand-new continuity like ''H20'' had done. The current synopsis goes that sometime after the first or second film, Michael Myers was captured and put on death row. Of course things go awry at his execution and he escapes with his sights set on a new group of Haddonfield youngsters, one of which is now the grown teen child of one of Michael's previous victims.



* YouLookFamiliar: In 2009's ''H2'', the actor who gets stomped to death behind the strip club later turns up as the green-faced host of the big Halloween party.

-> ''"I met him...15 years ago, I was told there was nothing left; no reason, no conscience, no understanding and even the most rudimentary sense of life or death, of good or evil,...right or wrong. I met this...six year old child with this blank, pale, emotionless face, and...the blackest eyes;...the devil's eyes. I spent eight years trying to reach him and then another seven trying to keep him locked up because I realized that what was living behind that boy's eyes was purely and simply…evil."''
