"Evil isn't just a word. It's real. He's real."
— Dr. Samuel Loomis, Halloween: The First Death of Laurie Strode #2
Deputy Gary Hunt: You talk about him like he's some kind of animal.
Dr. Samuel Loomis:
He was my patient for 15 years. It became an obsession with me until I realized that there was nothing within him, neither conscience nor reason, that wasn't even remotely human
! An hour ago I stood up and fired six shots into him, he just got up and walked away. I am talking about the real possibility that he is still out there
"We're not talking about any ordinary
prisoner, Hoffman! We are talking about evil on two legs."
"Black cats and goblins and broomsticks and ghosts.
Covens of witches with all of their hosts.
You may think they scare me, you're probably right.
Black cats and goblins on Halloween night. Trick or treat!"
— A chant from a group of children
