Laurie Strode confronts her long-time foe Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.
Halloween (2018) was the biggest horror movie opening with a female lead, biggest movie opening with a female lead over 55 and biggest opening for any of the Halloween franchise films. It was also the second biggest horror movie opening ever - after It (2017.) It was also the second biggest October opening ever (after Venom.) (Stats as of October 22, 2018.)
We're here to investigate a patient that killed three innocent teenagers on Halloween, 1978. He was shot by his own psychiatrist and taken into custody that night, and has spent the last forty years in captivity.
The secret door to their "hidden" basement. Opened slower in the earlier part of the movie. (Like a vault door, even sounded heavy as if it was sliding on stone) Once the action starts it opens much faster, not as noisy and even Michael can rip it up off the floor.
The opening and closing credits is stylized after the original 1978 version.
