Here’s John Carpenter and Cinematographer Dean Cundey setting up for a shot on location of Halloween (1978). Keen eyed Halloween fans and filmmakers will note a couple of things from this photo. The camera is being rigged to shoot at a 90 degree angle downwards and there appears to be a banister in the frame. So I think we can safely assume that this is a sequence taking place either upstairs in the Myers, Wallace, or Doyle house. I’d guess that his is setting up for either Laurie falling down the stairs in the Wallace house or Laurie slumped against the wall in the Doyle house.
