The Greatest Horror Film Of All-Time.

The Night He Came Home!

I'm not joking when I say that this is easily the greatest horror film ever created. From the music and the suspense, to the creepy yet amazing villain "Micheal Myers", this film did more than just prove itself, it redefined movie history.



Filmed in just several weeks and with a budget of just over 300,000 dollars, Halloween was... read more

A classic

Since it is a huge classic, I was really eager to check this flick . Indeed, it is arguably the most famous movie directed by John Carpenter and it is the ultimate slasher flick. I mean, it is basically the blue-print for all the slashers that came afterwards. I think it is rather funny that some viewers would say that it is rather slow and not really gory or scary. Before watching this, you have ... read more

Holy shit! What an absolutely amazing suspensful, non-stop, scary thrill ride this was! At first I didn't really want to watch Halloween because I am not a big horror fan but after hearing that Jamie Lee Curtis was in it and also a few people have recommended it to me, I decided to see what it was like. I wasn't surprised that it was good because I think that's what most horror films are like. Thi... read more

Movie Reviews (51-100) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: Atmospheric and elegant slasher that ruined the horror genre in the United States to this date by numerous copycat films that have tried to copy it's success as this film cost almost nothing but earned millions of dollars and made director John Carpenter into a legendary name. What makes this film work is it's beautiful camera movements (stolen/inspired by the Italian wave at the beginning of the 1970s), it's theme music and Jamie Lee Curtis as the modern scream queen. No one also does"
