Re: Just saw the scariest 20 minutes in cinema history.
That 20 minutes is actually the original movie as a whole - it was intended as a short film called The Sitter, and that's it in total. It's only after Haloween became a hit that they went back and expanded it to feature length by adding the "7 years later" hour.
That makes a lot of sense. I remember watching the beginning on tv and was glued to the set. I lost interest after that segment.
