Halloween sends chills down your spine with nothing more than a few piano notes and long shots of the masked Michael Myers looming in the background, stalking his victims. Halloween is mostly set in Haddonfield, Illinois, the sleepy Midwestern town where young Michael Myers begins his murderous mayhem. Michael Myers had an early obsession with masks. Michael Myers clearly has a tortured relationship with sex. Loomis later finds the same matchbook after Myers steals the car, which helps lead him to the killer.
