Double-bill of cult horror. In John Carpenter's highly influential 'Halloween' (1978), six-year-old Michael Myers is confined to an insane asylum after stabbing his sexually active teenage sister to death on Halloween night 1963. Exactly fifteen years later Michael escapes, returning to his home town of Haddonfield with psychiatrist Doctor Loomis (Donald Pleasence) in hot pursuit. Bookish babysitter Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis), all alone in the house on Halloween night, soon discovers that she is Michael's next target. In 'House' (1986), Vietnam veteran Roger Cobb (William Katt) decides to move into his aunt's old Victorian mansion in an attempt to find his son, who went missing there sometime before. The creepy building once bore witness to his aunt's suicide, and now, as Roger attempts to unravel its mysteries, he begins to experience all manner of evil apparitions, not to mention zombies who force him to relive his nightmares.
