Trivia Quiz In 1978, writer-director John Carpenter and his then-wife, producer Debra Hill, created a sensation with a low-budget, unpretentious horror movie called "Halloween."

No one was prepared for the splash it made.

In addition to making behind-the-scenes superstars of both Hill and Carpenter, it is widely credited (or blamed, depending on your point of view) for birthing the "slasher" subgenre of horror movie. Yes, it's widely agreed that Jason Voorhees, Freddy Krueger, "Ghostface" and the like would never have existed without this seminal picture. It wasn't even the only holiday-themed slasher film, though others tended not to be quite as good...

A critical and commercial smash, it netted $56 million worldwide during its initial run; the fact that Carpenter and Hill made it with a $325,000 budget made it--at the time--the greatest indie film success story in history. Almost 30 years later, even "serious" film devotees acknowledge "Halloween" as a masterwork of suspense, atmosphere and gradually escalating dread, while hardly anyone says anything comparable about Rob Zombie's bloated, expensive turkey of a remake.

It's a chill wind blowing in Haddonfield, Illinois tonight...but you've got to figure there's safety in numbers, even against the Boogeyman. Let's take this quiz TOGETHER!
