  • Balding, deceptively bland-looking British actor Donald Pleasence was first seen on the London stage in a 1939 production of Wuthering Heights. He then served in the RAF, spending the last years of World War II in a German POW camp. Resuming his career after the war, Pleasence eventually came to New York in the company of Laurence Olivier in 1950, appearing in Caesar and Cleopatra. And although he began appearing in films in 1954, Pleasence's British fame during the '50s was the result of his television work, notably a recurring role as Prince John in The Adventures of Robin Hood from 1955-1958. He also co-starred in TV productions of The Millionairess, Man in a Moon, and Call Me Daddy. Voted British television actor of the year in 1958, Pleasence produced and hosted the 1960 series Armchair Mystery Theatre, before creating the stage role for which he was best remembered: Davies, the menacing tramp in Harold Pinter's The Caretaker. The actor revived the character throughout his career, appearing as Davies for the last time in 1991. Pleasence was fortunate enough to be associated with the success of The Great Escape in 1963, which led to a wealth of American film offers. Four years later, the actor portrayed arch criminal Ernst Blofeld in the James Bond film You Only Live Twice -- the first time that the scarred face of the secretive character was seen onscreen in the Bond series. Firmly established as a villain, Pleasence gradually eased into horror films such as Halloween (1978), The Devonsville Terror (1979), and Buried Alive (1990); commenting on this phase of his career, Pleasence once mused "I only appear in odd films." One of his few "mainstream" appearances during this period was virtually invisible. Pleasence is seen and prominently billed as a rabbi in Carl Reiner's Oh, God! (1977), but the role was deemed dispensable and all the actor's lines were cut. Pleasence continued to work steadily in the 1980s and early '90s -- making 17 pictures alone in 1987-1989 -- before undergoing heart surgery in 1994; he died from complications two months later. Married four times, the actor was the father of six daughters, among them actress Angela Pleasence.

Brackett
Doctor, do you know what Haddonfield is? Families, children, all lined up in rows up and down these streets. You're telling me they're lined up for a slaughterhouse?
Doctor Loomis
They could be.
Brackett
Alright, I'll stay with you through the night, just on the chance that you're right. And if you are right... damn you for letting him go.
Doctor Loomis
He came home!
Doctor Loomis
This isn't a man!
Dr. Loomis
You're talking about him as if he were a human being. That part of him died years ago.
President of the United States

Doctor Loomis
I met him, fifteen years ago. I was told there was nothing left. No reason, no conscience, no understanding; even the most rudimentary sense of life or death, good or evil, right or wrong. I met this six-year-old child, with this blank, pale, emotionless face and, the blackest eyes... the *devil's* eyes. I spent eight years trying to reach him, and then another seven trying to keep him locked up because I realized what was living behind that boy's eyes was purely and simply... *evil*.

Laurie

Dr. Sam Loomis
We have been drugged.
Tommy Doyle
I don't understand, why didn't they kill us when they had the chance?
Dr. Sam Loomis
It's his game, and I know where he wants to play it.

I thought Michael was a monster, but you...

Dr. Wynn
Michael. Michael's gone! It's your game now Doctor Loomis!
Dr. Sam Loomis
Good God! Terrence, come in.

Good grace, what a night! Not so much as a sign for five miles on that road.

That's the beauty of the countryside...I thrive on it.
Dr. Sam Loomis

God, you look good Sam.
Dr. Sam Loomis
Ah, I feel great! I had surgery, plastic surgery; skin grafts. It cost a fortune, but at least I don't frighten people anymore.
Dr. Wynn
Well don't tell me that the revered Rasputin of Smithsgrove has grown complacent in his old age! I won't believe that for a second.
Dr. Sam Loomis
Michael Myers was just six-years-old when he stabbed his sister to death in 1963. Here in this house. For the next fifteen years, I became obsessed with finding out what was living inside of him. He was my life's work and my ultimate failure. I knew what he was but I never knew why.
Dr. Wynn
I was getting worried Sam, I was afraid you wouldn't make it.
Dr. Sam Loomis
Why now?
Dr. Wynn
Because you were the first one to see it. You recognized its power; evil. Pure, uncorrupted, ancient...

Dr. Wynn
I have my plans for this baby. Jamie's baby, will be the dawn of a new age. And I'm asking you to join me.
Dr. Sam Loomis
This force, this thing that lived inside of him came from a source too violent, too deadly, for you to imagine. It grew inside him, contaminating his soul. It was pure evil.
Debra Strode
What makes you think he'll come back here?
Dr. Sam Loomis
This house is sacred to him. He has all of his memories here, his rage. Mrs. Strode...I beg of you, don't let your family suffer the same fate that Laurie and her daughter suffered.
Dr. Sam Loomis

Tommy Doyle
Come with us.
Dr. Sam Loomis
No, I have some business to attend to.
Dr. Sam Loomis
It was Jamie Lloyd.
Dr. Wynn
That was six years ago Sam. She died with him in that explosion, you know that.
Dr. Sam Loomis
I've wanted to believe it. But I've felt Michael's presence, behind these walls, just like all those years ago. Plotting, staring...Staring...waiting for some signal. I can't go through this again, not alone. Please, as my colleague, as my friend. Help me.

Michael Myers is my business.
Dr. Wynn
Well, guess who after 32 years is finally relinquishing his duties as chief administrator of Smithsgrove?
Dr. Sam Loomis
Dear God. You don't mean you're...
Dr. Wynn
Retiring? I came by to give you the news myself.
Dr. Sam Loomis
Well, I wish you will Terrence.
Dr. Wynn
To old friends, to retirement, to new beginnings.
Tommy Doyle
Doctor Loomis, you know that can't stop Michael.
Dr. Sam Loomis
Nothing can stop Michael, but it can stop Wynn.
Dr. Wynn
I'd like you to come back to Smith's Grove.
Dr. Sam Loomis
Dr. Wynn, you know it is not wise to play Halloween pranks.
Dr. Sam Loomis
I knew what he was, but I never knew why.
Dr. Wynn
About time Doctor Loomis. Welcome to your fate. The time has come for you to know the truth. The time has come for you to join us.
Dr. Sam Loomis
Why now?
Dr. Wynn
After Jamie escapes last night, I knew she would come to you. And I knew you would lead us to her baby, her very special baby. I needed her, just as I need you now. It's your destiny Sam, it lives inside you. It always has, you know that don't you?
Dr. Sam Loomis
You are...a mad man.
Dr. Sam Loomis
You are a mad man.
Dr. Wynn
It's no prank; you're the one I've chosen Sam. I want you to come back.
Dr. Sam Loomis
After my stroke six years ago they practically had to hold a pistol to my head to get me to retire. But things are different now- I'm different. I've buried the ghosts; I've buried them in this manuscript. I don't want to practice medicine anymore.
Dr. Wynn
Look around you Sam, madness everywhere; famine, war, a great plague. These are signs we must restore balance to the natural order of things. We merely provide the means.
Dr. Sam Loomis
Michael?
Dr. Wynn
We've given him the power, the gift of thorn. I am its deliverer. I follow it, act as its guardian! I protect Michael, watch over him. And now it's time for another. Now it's time for you, Doctor Loomis.
Dr. Sam Loomis
It's his mark...He's come home.

Today someone dug up a coffin of a nine-year-old girl, Jamie. Jamie, you're nine years old. What do you think he's going to do with that when he finds you?
Rachel
How could they? When are they going to realize that she's not him, she's just a child.
Dr. Loomis
They know that Michael Myers is her uncle and he made her attack her stepmother, that's why they fear her...especially on Halloween.

Dr. Loomis
(to Jamie) - You must help me. Your tears will do you no good. He must be stopped!
Dr. Loomis
(to Jamie) You must help me. Your tears will do you no good. He must be stopped!
Dr. Loomis
Her whole body was shaking!
Mooker
Every time a little girl twitches, I'm supposed to call out the National Guard?
Charlie
What the hell are you doing?
Dr. Loomis
You're not taking her anywhere.
Charlie
You've got five seconds to give me that key before I take it.
Dr. Loomis
Michael? It will destroy you too, one day, Michael; this rage which drives you. You think if you kill them all it will go away? It won't! You have to fight it, in the place where it's strongest! WHERE IT ALL BEGAN! If you want to get rid of this rage, Michael, go home, GO HOME! Go to your house! I shall be there waiting for you! You will find HER, waiting for you!

Dr. Loomis
I know why you've come back, Michael. Because the little girl...the little girl can stop the rage inside. She knows how to do it, Michael. If you let her, she can stop the rage...the rage inside. No, she's not up there, Michael. She's down here in the middle of the old house...your house, Michael...your house. Do you remember how much better you used to be?

Sheriff Meeker
It's over?
Dr. Loomis
Yes...Yes it is. Michael Myers is in hell, buried, where he belongs.
Dr. Loomis
Yes. Yes it is. Michael Myers is in hell, buried, where he belongs.
Dr. Loomis
Ten years ago, he tried to kill Laurie Strode. Now he wants her daughter.
Dr. Hoffman
Now where are you going?
Dr. Loomis
Haddonfield. It's a four hour drive. You can reach me through the local police. If you don't find him in four hours, I'm sure I will.
Dr. Loomis
Michael? Why now? You've waited ten years. Why come back now? I knew this day would come. Don't go to Haddonfield. If you want another victim, take me. But leave those people in peace. Please, Michael? - ...Goddamn you.
Dr. Loomis

Sheriff Meeker
This is starting to spook me here, doctor.
Dr. Loomis
At least I'm not alone.
Dr. Loomis
Six bodies, Sheriff, that's what I have seen; between here and Ridgemont. An entire filling station in flames! I'm telling you Michael Myers is here, in this town! He's here to kill that little girl and anybody who gets in his way!
Dr. Loomis
I need to speak with Sheriff Brackett.
Deputy Pierce
Well, then you'll have to travel about three-thousand miles south of here.
Dr. Loomis
What?
Deputy Pierce
Brackett retired in '81. He went to St. Petersburg.
Dr. Loomis
We're not talking about any ordinary prisoner, Hoffman! We are talking about evil on two legs.
Dr. Loomis
Wherever she is, that little child is in mortal danger.
Dr. Loomis
Why wasn't I notified?
Dr. Hoffman
About what?
Dr. Loomis
You know damn well about what! You let them take it out of here!
Sheriff Meeker
How could a man do this, Loomis? Tell me.
Dr. Loomis
This isn't a man.
Sheriff Meeker
Then what is he? Tell me! What the hell are we dealing with here?
Dr. Loomis
Evil.
Dr. Loomis
(after seeing Jamie holding a pair of bloody scissors, on the top of the stairs, after killing her stepmother) - No! No! No! No! No! Noooooooooo!!!
Dr. Loomis
(after seeing Jamie holding a pair of bloody scissors, on the top of the stairs, after killing her stepmother) No! No! No! No! No! Noooooooooo!!!
Dr. Loomis
Maybe nobody knows how to stop him.
Dr. Loomis
You're talking about him as if he were a human being. That part of him died years ago.
Dr. Loomis
The state police will be here soon.
Jamie Lloyd
And then we'll be safe?
Dr. Loomis
Yes.
Jamie Lloyd
You don't believe that, do you?
Dr. Loomis
No...
Dr. Loomis
No.
Jack Sayer
You're hunting it, ain't ya? Yeah, you're hunting it alright, just like me!
Dr. Loomis
What are you hunting, Mr. Sayer?
Jack Sayer
Apocalypse, End of the World, Armageddon. It always has a face and a name. I've been hunting the bastard for 30 years, give or take. Come close a time or two. Too damn close! You can't kill damnation, Mister. It don't die like a man dies!
Dr. Loomis
I know that, Mr. Sayer.
Sam Loomis
I'm sorry I left you. Are you all right?
Laurie Strode
Why won't he die?
Sam Loomis
It's Time, Michael.
Sam Loomis
Go and check all the rooms down there! Go on!
Marion
Dr. Loomis!
Sam Loomis
You stay with me and shut up!
Sam Loomis
I ought to handcuff you to the wheel, but I have a feeling I'm gonna need you in there. Can I trust you?
Marshall
What have I got to lose, except my job?
Sam Loomis
Did you see the blackboard back there in the elementary school?
Marion
Yeah.
Sam Loomis
In order to appease the gods, the Druid priests held fire rituals. Prisoners of war, criminals, the insane, animals...were...burned alive in baskets. By observing the way they died, the Druids believed they could see omens of the future. Two thousand years later, we've come no further. Samhain isn't evil spirits. It isn't goblins, ghosts or witches. It's the unconscious mind. We're all afraid of the dark inside ourselves.

Michael Myers was an extraordinary patient. There was a force inside him biding his time. He came accustomed to the inability and silence. In many ways he was the ideal patient he never talked he never cried he never moved. He just waited. The staff was unprepared they didn't know what he was.
Gary Hunt
You know. Haddonfield was a pretty quiet town before tonight. The only gunshot you heard was to start off the race at the high school track.
Sam Loomis
Well this night in '63 Michael Myers did murder his sister in that bedroom upstairs with a butcher's knife.
Gary Hunt
I remember.
Sam Loomis
On Halloween.
Gary Hunt
I was sixteen years old.
Sam Loomis
His anniversary was tonight...He came back.
Sam Loomis
His anniversary was tonight. He came back.
Sam Loomis
Turn this car around, now!
Marshall
I can't do that. I have orders.
Sam Loomis
(draws a gun) - Well those orders have changed!
Marshall
Doctor, you're getting yourself into a lot of trouble.
Sam Loomis
What is it you guys usually do? Fire a warning shot, right? (Shoots the window out with his gun)
Graham
(examining the burned corpse) - No fillings. He's young; maybe seventeen, maybe eighteen.
Graham

Sam Loomis
Michael Myers is 21.
Sam Loomis
(to Hunt) - Heightens my sense of security.
Sam Loomis
(to Hunt) Heightens my sense of security.
Leigh Brackett
You know, doctor, I'm just about there.
Sam Loomis
What?
Leigh Brackett
The point where I stop taking orders from you.
Sam Loomis
If that wasn't Michael Myers burning in that car there are going to be a lot of other kid's dead tonight.
Gary Hunt
He's dead. I saw him.
Sam Loomis
I want to believe you. But I can't stop him until I'm certain he's dead.
Gary Hunt
You talk about him like he's some sort of animal.
Sam Loomis
He was my patient for fifteen years. He became an obsession with me until I realized that there wasn't neither conscience nor reason that he was even remotely human. An hour ago I fired six bullets into him and he just walked away. I am talking about the real possibility that he is still out there!
Leigh Brackett
You couldn't have shot him six times!
Sam Loomis
You think I'm lying, Sheriff?
Leigh Brackett
I think you missed him. No man could take six shots.
Sam Loomis
I'm telling you this isn't a man.
Leigh Brackett
Damn you...
Leigh Brackett
Damn you.
Sam Loomis
I'm sorry...
Sam Loomis
I'm sorry.
Leigh Brackett
What have you done...?
Leigh Brackett
What have you done?
Sam Loomis
I haven't done anything.
Leigh Brackett
YOU LET HIM OUT!
Leigh Brackett
You let him out?!
Sam Loomis
I didn't let him out. I gave orders for him to be restrained.
