Halloween - Michael Myers' First Kill

The amazing opening exterior-to-interior tracking shot of the original Halloween, clearly inspired by Orsen Welles' Touch of Evil, has quickly become a slasher film standard. The tracking shot is presented from the point-of-view of 6-year old Michael Myers who proceeds to grab a butcher knife from the kitchen, go upstairs, and stab his sister Judith several times. From the moment the tiny mask is put on through to the scary realization of who our killer is...a truly terrifying scene.
