I figured I couldn't go wrong with this one since it's one of the all time great slashers.If you don't like The Night He Came Home... Suspect

Love this movie, I only saw it for the first time this year..... And I liked it better then the remake, which I saw long ago. Donald was perfect as Loomis. I still can't get over the sheer power he had in all his lines, it's so believable and you watch that guy. R.I.P.

He was great.the role was offered to Peter Cushing.he turned it down because he had just been in Star Wars and figured it would make him look bad to be in a "nothing" movie.then they offered it Christopher Lee who to this day regrets not taking it.bad for them,good for us! cheers

On the Features of my DVD I think it said the producers told Carpenter not to get Lee, as people would think it was a Hammer film.

Donald Pleasence ended up doing the movie because his daughter liked the Assault on Precinct 13 movie and soundtrack so he flew to California and was impressed with Carpenter/Hill and crew.story has it that he even helped tow cable and such-class act! Cool
