It's Halloween and the Bogeyman has some beef with the babysitter, well, all the babysitters, but one in particular. 

Revisit the original Halloween from 1978 and its sequel.

Everyone is talking about these movies again because of Halloween 2018, but not like us, not the way we do it on Binge-Watchers, so enjoy...

On a cold Halloween night in 1963, six year old Michael Myers brutally murdered his 17-year-old sister, Judith. He was sentenced and locked away for 15 years. But on October 30, 1978, while being transferred for a court date, a 21-year-old Michael Myers steals a car and escapes Smith's Grove. He returns to his quiet hometown of Haddonfield, Illinois, where he looks for his next victims.

Released October 25, 1978 
John Carpenter directed
Written with his partner, Debra Hill
John Carpenter scored that infamous theme song.

And then...
Halloween 2.
Directed by Rick Rosenthal
Released October 30, 1981 

After failing to kill stubborn survivor Laurie (Jamie Lee Curtis) and taking a bullet or six from former psychiatrist Dr. Sam Loomis (Donald Pleasence), Michael Myers (Dick Warlock) has followed Laurie to the Haddonfield Memorial Hospital, where she's been admitted for Myers' attempt on her life. The institution proves to be particularly suited to serial killers, however, as Myers cuts, stabs and slashes his way through hospital staff to reach his favorite victim.
