Included in the Halloween Triple Feature:
HALLOWEEN (1978) - The night that HE came home! John Carpenter's horror classic introduced us to a young man named Michael Myers "with the devil's eyes" who escapes a mental hospital to come back to Haddonfield, IL and terrorize a group of babysitters (including Jamie Lee Curtis and P.J. Soles) while being pursued by his doctor (Donald Pleasence) who knows all too well the terror coming to town.

HALLOWEEN II (1981) - This sequel came out three years after the original but picks up at the precise moment of that film's shocking ending. Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) is taken to the hospital where the staff of Haddonfield Memorial has NO idea the evil that's coming their way. Dr. Loomis (Donald Pleasence) will stop at nothing to find Michael and keep the scares of Halloween from lasting another 24 hours.

HALLOWEEN III: SEASON OF THE WITCH (1982) - This entry in the series takes a break from the Michael Myers storyline but concocts its own genius story of the mysterious Silver Shamrock mask company that pops up in Santa Mira, CA selling this season's hottest costumes, but underneath it all is wild plot that may bring about the end of civilization as we know it and only Dr. Dan Challis (Tom Atkins) may hold the key to stopping a chain of terrifying events.

As April winds down and, with it, our tribute to car movies - I want to talk a little bit not just about the remaining films (and intimidating trilogy in its own right: Bullitt, Death Proof and Two-Lane Blacktop), but about the films that we weren’t able to program this time around.  If you haven’t seen Steve McQueen in Le Mans, you should do that.  Right now.  I mean it.

I met Ms. Hedren in the lounge of Elway's on the first floor of Denver's Ritz-Carlton. We talked about her new pursuits and her "second career" in the movies, though we started as most any conversation with Tippi Hedren must: with her time with Hitchcock.
