The Haddonfield Hunter had many victims during his Hollywood heyday.

Shoo! Go away!
Much like those helpless teen queens, each season 11 team falls victim to the pressures of post-season play—going downstairs for a beer after the classic "I'll be right back" line, only to end up stuck to a wall thanks to a long kitchen knife courtesy of a murderous Michael Myers, who just happened to be hanging around an empty pantry—though impossible, how awesome is that scene?
