Tonight, the Webster University Film series wraps up its weekend-long stretch of John Carpenter films with the classic that gave birth to the holiday we're all celebrating, Halloween. Made for $325,000 in 1978, the film premiered close to home -- in Kansas City, Missouri -- and went on to become one of the most profitable independent films of all time. While the Italians had been cranking out similarly themed giallo movies for years, Halloween popularized the slasher film formula, as the Captain Kirk-masked psycho Michael Myers stalks a teenage Jamie Lee Curtis and kills off her friends one by one. Roundly praised as the best of its ilk, Halloween screens Sunday at 7:30 p.m. in Webster University's Moore Auditorium (470 East Lockwood Avenue; 314-968-7487 or www.webster.edu/filmseries). Tickets are $5 to $6.
