Yes, I am, uh... I met him fifteen years ago. I was told there was nothing left. No reason, no, uh, conscience, no understanding and even the most rudimentary sense of life or death, of good or evil, right or wrong. I met this six year old child with this blank, pale, emotionless face, and the blackest eyes, the devil's eyes. I spent eight years trying to reach him and then another seven trying to keep him locked up, because I realized that what was living behind that boy's eyes was purely and simply...evil.
~ Loomis to Sheriff Brackett.
It's time, Michael.
~ Dr. Loomis' last words to Michael Myers in Halloween II before his sacrifice.

Samuel J. Loomis was a child psychologist and the deuteragonist of the 1978 classic horror film Halloween and its many sequels (except for Halloween III: Season of the Witch) who was assigned to the case of a 6 year-old child, Michael Myers, who had murdered his sister on the night of Halloween '63. He had tried to help him for years, spending hours a day asking questions to the boy, but he never got any response at all. He would study the young Myers, who seemed to stare off into his own imagination. Finally, after seven years, he came to the conclusion that this boy was no longer human, but pure evil. For the next eight years, he pleaded to the hospital administration and even the federal government that Micheal must be locked away for life. However, both concluded that it was not in the best interest of the patient to be moved out of hospital care.

Loomis knew if he was not put in solitary confinement, he would escape...but no one took him seriously. On the eve before his court hearing, before the Illinois Supreme Court, Micheal Myers escaped Smith's Grove Sanitarium prior to being transported to the courthouse on October 30. Loomis told the hospital where Micheal would go. Without hesitation, he raced to Haddonfield Michael's home. He restlessly tried to hunt down the psychopathic Michael Myers. He was portrayed by the late Donald Pleasance in the original and Malcolm McDowell in the remake.


  • The late Peter Crushing, the late Christopher Lee, the late Mel Brooks, the late Walter Matthau, the late Patrick McGoohan, the late Cesar Romero, the late John Belushi, the late Abe Vigoda, the late Lawrence Tierney, the late Lyle Waggoner and Sean Connery were all considered for the role of Dr. Samuel Loomis before Donald Pleasance was cast.
