Default 'Halloween' writer-producer passes away

Writer-producer DEBRA HILL of the original Halloween (and sequel Halloween II) passed away today. She was only 54 years old.

CNN Article

She will be missed, as she was a part of the film that inspired horror films for the past two+ decades.

That's sad news. Halloween was one of the first horror films I saw, and it scared the bejesus out of me.

That's such sad news. Halloween will always be one of the greatest horror movies of all-time and she will certainly be missed a lot.

Here's an interesting little tid-bit : It's Debra Hill's hands at the very beginning of the first Halloween when it's "little" Michael dressed as a clown. That's her hands grabbing the knife out of the drawer and then "killing" the sister.

It's a sad day for the horror genre. R.I.P.

Why is it always the good celebrities and never Michael Jackson? I'll miss her.

^ lol

Also, more trivia, did you know that Debra played Michael Myers in a few scenes in Halloween? The real noticeable one is when Michael Myers is standing outside the house across the street and we see a shot from the Doyle house (a shorter, wider looking Myers).

I can't tell you how many times I almost typed 'Debra Wilson' instead of 'Debra Hill' since there's usually only one Debra we talk about here.
