Halloween kicked off the slasher craze that would flourish throughout the 1980s, but ’60s horror films and Alfred Hitchcock classics like psychopath has been a source of inspiration for filmmakers.
Among the many Easter eggs in David Gordon Green’s sequel Halloween kills, the psychopath the tribute is the most notable. As such, it is not surprising that the Halloween The main star of the franchise, Jamie Lee Curtis, is the daughter of Janet Leigh, one of the first official “Scream Queens” who played Marion Crane in Hitchcock’s. psychopath. Over the years, Halloween the films and especially Curtis took pleasure in paying homage to the famous role of Leigh. Leigh even made an appearance Halloween H20 in front of his daughter, although Green Halloween the films have found this sequel. As a foreshadowing that psychopath would make his way into the film, Curtis even dressed up in Marion Crane’s outfit for the Halloween kills first.
Green vegetables psychopath the easter egg is coming to Halloween kills‘ending by mimicking the iconic murder of Marion Crane. As Karen is inside Michael Myers’ house and is looking out the window, he suddenly appears wielding his knife. The sequence is clearly a psychopath tribute, with her quirky killer perspective that doesn’t actually show the knife puncturing the skin, and focuses on Karen’s screams as she tries to block her punches. It takes it one step further as Karen slowly slides along the wall of Michael’s house, much like Marion slides along the shower wall in the Alfred Hitchock movie.

It also leaves room for comparisons between Michael and psychopath‘s Norman Bates, who essentially wears the mask of his mother’s identity when he murders Marion.
Halloween 2018 featured a deleted scene that was unmistakable psychopath recall. It depicts British podcaster Dana taking a shower as the camera shows the bathroom door opening with “Michael Myers” slowly entering. Channeling his best impression of Norman Bates, “Michael” pulls the curtain back and prepares his knife – but it’s just the other podcaster playing a prank on his partner. The awkwardness of this streak is probably the reason it was cut. Halloween kills was finally able to pay tribute, and it was all the more significant since the victim in question was Laurie’s daughter, Karen, who will set up an intense confrontation in Halloween ends.
