A patient is brutally murdered in hospital, the attacker is promptly incinerated when his vehicle blows up in the car park. Witness to a series of bizarre and horrifying incidents, Dr Dan Challis investigates and comes face to face with the sinister figure of Conal Cochran, maker of Halloween masks.
Intent on reviving the rites of all Hallows Eve, a night of ancient sacrifice when, long ago, the hills ran red with the blood of animals and children, the diabolical toymaker is planning a devilish trick or treat for the children of America.
Trivia: Spoilers: Originally, the credits were going to be accompanied by the sound of wailing cries of children, implying that Cochran's plan worked. However, it was later decided to instead simply play the movie's theme over the credits to leave the ending more ambiguous, so that the audience will never know for sure whether or not Challis stopped Cochran's plans.TedStixon
