American Boogeymen
(R) USA – 1 hr 31 min
1978 · d. John Carpenter   Reviews
Starring Jamie Lee Curtis, Donald Pleasence, Nick Castle

Fifteen years after committing a terrible crime, Michael Myers dons a featureless mask and returns to the idyllic every-suburb of Haddonfield, IL, on Halloween night to terrorize babysitter Laurie Strode (scream queen supreme Jamie Lee Curtis). Forty years on, and legions of imitators and remakes later, John Carpenter's superlative slasher film remains the standard-bearer of the genre: stripped-down, relentless, and scary as all get out.

Shown in conjunction with the film course Teenage Dreams, American Nightmares: Americana, Youth Culture, and the Horror Film, this screening will be introduced by the course’s instructor, Alice Bullitt, M.A.
