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.

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

Bml93's Horror Nightmares - October 2017 (17 movies items)

" There's a saying in filmmaking that quite often "less is more". John Carpenter's Halloween embodies that rule to perfection. It might not necessarily scare today's audiences in the same way that some other films might do, but Halloween manages to capture a sense of dread and terror that few films are unable to do. It's a film that understands how important it is to build suspense and atmosphere. The scenes with Michael Myers just lurking around to Carpenter's iconic score are masterfully made. "
