A Cut-Up

Halloween, 1978. In the sleepy town of Haddonfield, Illinois, a man named Michael Myers goes fruit-ninja with a butcher knife on three babysitters. And a dog. And a boyfriend. And a truck driver. A half-dozen gruesome murders later, the precursor to the modern slasher movie is born.

While we’ve come a long way since then, the terror caused by the original Halloween is still impossible to replicate -- but you can relive it in all the digitized and remastered glory of today’s technology when Dr. Diabolic, Phoenix’s go-to horror host, leads a screening of Halloween in the Phoenix Art Museum’s Whiteman Hall on Wednesday, October 31. Prior to the screening, there will be a Halloween costume contest with a cash prize.
