Corey, you're a lifesaver.

Hi.

How've you been? Come on in.

(playing Bach's Toccata
and Fugue in D minor, BWV 565)

MRS. ALLEN:
Roger! Corey's here!

Sorry this is last-minute,
but Andrea got a stomach bug

- and literally just called me.
- Oh, it's okay.

It's Roger's company
Halloween party,

and I could care less, but...
Roger!

Hope he's better at childcare
than he is at yard work.

You know, next spring,

you should consider
some perennials.

Hydrangeas could really

- balance out that dogwood.
- Saving for college?

- Where did you say you're going?
- Oh, I'm applying

to a few different
engineering programs.

Just saving money this year
so I can go next fall.

Jeremy, the sitter's here!

Jeremy!

(screams, chuckles)

Jeremy!

- Ah! You! I'm gonna get you!
- (Jeremy laughing)

I'm gonna get you.
(growls playfully)

(both laughing)

Crash landing! Kaboom!

Oh!

- (chuckles)
- Beep, beep, beep, beep.

Can you show me how to make
a Thunder Bomber?

Number one of all time.

- My dad can do the best.
- No pressure.

Yeah, I'll sure give it
a shot, little dude.

MR. ALLEN: You gonna be good
for Mr. Corey?

- Corey. Could I talk to you for a sec?
- Yeah.

JEREMY:
Here comes the Thunder Bomber!

I'm gonna put the candy
on the porch.

Trick-or-treat kids
can help themselves.

Help yourself
to anything in the fridge.

MR. ALLEN: She made zucchini
bread. It's actually good.

- (chuckling)
- You have my number.

- Okay.
- If there's an emergency,

but we'll just be
right down the street.

- JEREMY: Crash! -(door closes)
- (inhales deeply)

And there is one thing
I need to tell you.

Since last Halloween...
All the events and,

you know, the headlines
of Michael Myers...

Jeremy's been afraid
of the dark.

(whispering): He's been
wetting the bed at night.

And, um, bedtime has been
difficult. (chuckles)

JEREMY:
I can hear you!

Uh, I can read him a story
or something.

- Does he have a favorite book?
- Then once he goes to bed,

he talks in his sleep.

Says he hears voices.

He's just really
sensitive to things

- that give him bad dreams.
- Right. All that just sounds

like normal kid
imagination stuff, right?

- (Jeremy yelling playfully)
- (door opens)

- No TV and no more candy.
- (door closes)

You guys can play
till 8:30, 8:45.

Then he should go to bed.

- Easy money.
- Yes.

JEREMY:
Gonna come play with me or what?

- (chuckling)
- That sounds like a threat.

It's Halloween.

We're gonna have
a good time tonight.

- (crickets chirping)
- (dog barking in distance)

(man screaming on TV)

JEREMY:
Oh.

- Ugh.
- COREY: Look, man, we can

shut it off if you're scared
of monster movies.

No. No. You're scared.

(chuckling): I'm 21 years old.
I don't get scared.

You're scared because you know
Michael Myers is...

(whispers):
still out there.

Boogeyman's gonna get you.

JEREMY:
He's not gonna get me.

Michael Myers kills
babysitters, not kids.

(screaming)

Okay, that's actually
pretty disgusting

and probably not appropriate
for kids.

Why don't we
shut this off, and...

we can play hide-and-seek
before bed.

Your parents are gonna
be home soon and...

I don't want to play
no hide-and-seek.

It's stupid.
I want to watch this movie.

And I don't really feel like
pretending to be best friends

with an ugly-ass boy babysitter.

Okay, five minutes,
and then you're going to bed.

You suck at babysitting.

I'm not a babysitter.

LAURIE: Haddonfield was
a peaceful town.

And then one Halloween night
many years ago,

all of that was lost.

Michael Myers was pure evil.

(sobbing)

He took our dreams

and turned them into nightmares.

As he was locked away
in his prison...

...I disappeared into mine.

(gunshots)

And then, as I predicted,

40 years later, he escaped,

and Haddonfield was once again
forced to confront

this man in a mask.

(muffled, distorted screaming)

His senseless brutality
ravaged my community...

(muffled, distorted whimpering)

...and killed my daughter.

♪ ♪

And then he vanished.

Impossible?

Perhaps.

Truth would evolve into legend

as people searched
for motive and meaning,

looking in the shadows
for their boogeyman.

(thunder crashes)

(muffled, distorted sobbing)

It was an accident.

LAURIE:
In the years that followed,

the people of Haddonfield
descended into a plague

of grief, of blame, of paranoia.

OFFICER:
Do you think he's come back?

Michael doesn't use guns.

LAURIE:
The suffering Michael caused

became an infection
passing on to people

who never even crossed his path.

And as the town
turned in on itself,

I made a promise not to let
fear rule my life anymore.

(birds chirping)

I bought a home.

A place to live
with love and trust.

Not a trap.

Not a place to hide.

Hey.

It has been four years

since I last saw my monster.

So here I am, a survivor
attempting to share my story

and find healing.

Michael Myers was
the personification of evil.

It's theirs.

It's their wedding rings.

It's up to each of us

whether or not we lock the door

and find our resolve...

...or let him inside.

Let it inside.

Let evil...

inside.

- (wind whistling)
- (alarm beeping)

Allyson! Darn it!

- Honey, I'm so sorry!
- What is it?

Oh, fuck!

Um, it's my pie.
I put a pie in the oven.

Oh, shit!

Oh, I must have forgotten
to set the timer.

Damn it!

Darn it!
No, no, no, no, Oh, no.

I can get a pie from the store.

No! I wanted to bake you
a pumpkin pie.

It's a Halloween tradition.

- (alarm stops)
- (sighs)

(groans)

- Are you...
- I got to go.

- I'm late for work.
- (sighs): Okay.

But do you have your costume
for the party?

I told you,
I don't want to go alone.

So I'm not going.

(sighs)

Oh.

RADIO ANNOUNCER:

WILLIE THE KID: It is
four days until Halloween.

- Can you believe it?

It's time to lock your doors,
grab your knife for the fight.

You ready? You ready in case

the Boogeyman decides
to come out and play?

(over radio):
I know I am.

But let's talk about that
Michael Myers for a minute.

How does one man get shot at,
stabbed up

and then he fall
down the street and get back up

to scare the piss out of
everybody in Haddonfield?

Let me tell you how...
'cause this isn't a man.

This is more than a man.
This is a beast. (growls)

One that doesn't bleed...

I'm pretty sure
that was in the change order.

Hold-hold on a second, Shannon.

Hey, Corey, you're late!

You're late again!

WILLIE THE KID (over radio):
It's been four years.

Where y'all at?

Training for the big day,
perhaps?

Getting yourself in the spirit?

This Boogeyman been sitting
in hibernation,

but trust me, y'all,
he'll be back.

I'm Willie the Kid,
and I'll be creeping it real

on 94.9 WUR...

Corey, you got a second?

What do you think?

Yeah.

Get it registered.

Get some new plates.

- I got no use for it no more.
- Are you serious?

With a good engine pushing you,
finally make it

to work on time,
you know what I mean?

Does it work?

Yeah, it works,
just kind of shitty.

Hey, uh, Ronald?

Thanks.

No problem, kid.

You're under arrest.

For being the prettiest girl
I know.

That's nice, Doug.

Is that why you pulled me over?

No. I pulled you over
'cause I miss you.

You miss me?

(chuckling):
Just kidding.

Pulled you over

Wait. (chuckles) New friend.

- Yeah. Yeah.
- I like milk, too.

- Look, here's the deal, man.

We're seniors, okay?

We've been practicing for our
show the whole year, you know.

Loading up for,
uh, tonight's game and...

Well, we're in
the fucking marching band.

We were just hoping you could
be a cool new friend, you know.

Just buy us
a couple of six-packs.

Just-just for me and my crew.
Come on, man. (chuckles)

Uh, no.

No?

No-no, thank you? What?

- No, I can't.

- I know who you are.
- You did something messy.

- STACY: I can't believe they let you off.
- Well, who is he?

- Oh, yeah.
- Yeah.

You're that psycho babysitter.

He killed that kid, didn't he?

- Yep.
- Killed a kid and too pussy

- to buy us some fucking beer?
- MARGO: Guys, you know what?

Let's just fucking
forget about it.

Let's just go to the game, okay?

- You're just a little pedo.
- Look at him.

- Let him know, Terry.
- That what you are?

A little fucking pedo creep?

So, do you want to do it,
or you want me to?

ALLYSON:
Look at it.

DEB:
Are you kidding?

It looks great on you.

I'm sure it does,
but I'm not going.

Once you put the whole outfit
on, you'll love it.

I say if it's not sexy,
it's not Halloween.

Well, someone's getting into
the spirit of things.

This gentleman had an accident
and needs a little fix-up.

DR. MATHIS: You have
significant inflammation.

Um, I'm gonna be nice
and numb it here

so my assistant can
clean it up really well,

and then I will get back
and close it with a suture.

You're gonna feel
a little bit of a pinch here.

Cute, isn't she?

I don't... Ow!

- Jesus Christ!
- ALLYSON: Sorry. Sorry.

- I'm sorry. I'm sorry.
- Allyson, what are you doing?

- COREY: It's my fault. Sorry.
- Allyson!

- No.
- ALLYSON: Sorry, sorry.

No. No, my fault.
It was my fault.

- I-I'm so sorry. Oh, geez.
- DR. MATHIS: What a mess.

Just clean it up
and get a goddamn sterile kit.

And give him a tetanus shot.

I'll be back.

You shouldn't let that guy
talk to you like that.

It's gonna make you sad, even
if you don't think it does.

I've dealt with much worse.

But thank you.

Anyway, I've just been
dealing with it.

Well, I'm supposed to
get this promotion.

- But either way, it's just...
- Is it worth it?

What'd you do?

- Uh...
- To your hand?

Uh, I was at work, and then
I had a little accident.

- So your job sucks, too.
- Hmm?

Where do you work?
What do you do?

- COREY: Oh, a mechanic shop.
- Don't move.

- Don't want to get infected.
- (glass clinks in tray)

So my car's been rattling.

- Rattling?
- Yeah.

Uh, it's just your exhaust
system clamp's come loose.

It's an easy fix.
It takes like five minutes.

Super cinchy.

You just need a lift
and two screws.

"Cinchy"?

You don't
have to fix it right now.

Yeah, I don't have
my stuff, but...

I am at the shop tomorrow.

I can fix it then.

Why can't the bicycle
stand on its own?

No, no. It can.

It's got a kickstand.

'Cause it was too tired.

(laughing)

Yeah.

Oh, I'm actually
getting rid of the bike,

so if you want it,
you can have it.

I got a motorcycle.

- Oh, a motorcycle?
- Yeah.

Teach me to ride it?

Yeah.

You have shit on your back.

I'll get it.

We should go out sometime
and do something.

- With me?
- With both of us.

I mean,
we'd both have to be there.

Otherwise, it wouldn't be
a very good time.

(Corey chuckles)

Yeah, you don't want to do that.

Uh, I'm gonna be late
for dinner.

But, uh, I appreciate the hand.

It feels better already.

ALLYSON:
So you did that on purpose.

LAURIE:
What?

He was injured,

he needed medical attention,
and Dr. Mathis

- is the best in town.
- Do you believe her?

- Do not believe a word she says.
- (chuckles)

- You know, she's a strategist.
- Fine, fine, fine.

She's just trying to play Cupid.

Thought he was cute.
Seemed nice.

Are you gonna call him

and invite him to her party,

or you gonna just go alone?

LINDSAY:
Now pick a card. Mm-hmm.

Oh, no. I got the death card.

- No, that's not bad in tarot.
- LAURIE: Mm-mm.

LINDSAY: No, that just means
a major phase is ending

and a new one is about to begin.

So, that pretty much puts
a nail in the coffin

with that police officer
you were dating.

- Ugh, Doug.
- (Lindsay chuckles)

You know, you need to find
someone that can let go.

That makes you want
to rip off your shirt

and show grief
your fucking tits and say,

"You know what? Let's go."

- JOAN: This is delicious.
- (TV playing quietly)

Corey. Is it infected?

Is your hand infected?
What did the doctor say?

He said
it's gonna be fine, Mama.

He said that
you don't need to worry,

and he said it would be
terrific is what he said.

Well, I just might have to send
him back to the call center

to work for Devon if you can't
give him proper supervision.

I can't keep my eyes
on every second.

(phone buzzing)

JOAN:
What the hell are you doing?

Who's that calling you
under the dinner table?

COREY:
Uh, it's no one, Mama.

JOAN: Who's that person
you're texting?

(buzzing)

It's no one.

(sighs)

don't get custard for dessert.

Don't tell her about
the motorcycle, then.

- (engine rattling and clanking)
- Hold on one second.

Something I can help you with?

Corey said I should bring it in.

(engine shuts off)

Get on.

Okay, so...

(Corey grunts, sniffs)

Okay.

Uh, right hand, gas.
Left hand is your front...

Fuck. Uh, sorry.

Right hand is gas,
also your front brake.

And then left hand
is your, uh, clutch.

Right foot is your back brake.

And, uh, left foot is
the shifter thingy.

Doesn't sound simple.

RONALD:
Yo, Corey!

Come give us a hand.

- Hey, Ron.
- Hey, Terry.

TERRY'S FATHER: I'm sorry
to bother you with this shit.

My goddamn son drove
three miles on a fucking flat

'cause he doesn't know
how to change a tire

on a goddamn automobile.

Fucking genius.

Uh... I got it.

TERRY'S FATHER:
Yeah, and fucking smarten up.

(indistinct chatter continues)

I'm gonna go help Ronald
and then fix the rattle.

Your rattle. Your car's, uh...

I don't care about the rattle.
I came to see you.

RONALD:
We'll take care of her.

- Be right back with the lean.

Jesus, Frank, have you ever
heard of a vegetable?

Well, look who it is.

(grunts, laughs)

- They're good for you.
- Well, I like to

mix meats and make croquettes
for the guys at the station.

(laughs): Okay,
that just sounds disgusting.

I like your hair.

Thanks.

Thanks. I, uh...

I just sort of
chopped it one day.

It just was... It felt like time.

Wow.

Somebody else fixed it.

- Help.
- Yeah.

There goes your lean.

- Ah. Thank you, Travis.
- Have a good day.

- Okay.
- See ya.

But I tell you, I-I feel like
I won an extra life.

- Mm.
- I really do.

I got myself a guitar
at the pawnshop,

and I've been
fiddling around with that,

and my niece gave me
a Rosetta Stone,

- and now I'm learning Japanese.
- Mm.

(speaks Japanese)

- What does that mean?
- It means I lost my shirt.

- I think. Or I lost my hat.
- (laughs)

I don't know. I... (laughs)

Uh... (stammers)

Thanks.

Uh, (clears throat) who knows?

Maybe I'll fly over
for the cherry blossoms.

Test it out on the locals.

You still got your nose in
that, uh, book you're writing?

Your fault. It was your idea.

- It was?

- No, I'm...

You probably know him.

Corey Cunningham.

Oh, yeah. I do know.

Had a tough break.

It's nice to know somebody's

He killed her husband,
and he stabbed her.

Took her voice!

Who knows what to believe?

I think the man who escaped
Smith's Grove in 1978

was not the same man
who killed all those people.

The real Michael Myers
was murdered that night,

and the heavy breather
with the mask was the same man

who poisoned Pope John Paul I.
