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

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

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

"7.5. 2020 A cold-blooded killer escapes a mental institution and starts killing people on Halloween night. Carpenter's famous horror classic is extremely captivating even without any kind of deep psychological examinations. The film works on several different levels: it's always scary just to think what might happen when we know that a dangerous killer is on the loose but the film isn't any less convincing when we actually see the killer."

" Date: 10/31/2019 Viewed: 4K UHD Re-Watch Note: I was going to see The Lighthouse, but the bad weather got in the way. So I decided to do the most cliche choice by watching Halloween on Halloween. The movie looks excellent in 4K UHD and is an improvement over the old HD transfers. I already talk about this movie last year on my 31 days of Horror, so I can't add anything new to say. If you haven't seen this classic yet, do it now. This is one iconic slasher movie will that never get old for m"

“Conferred as a byword for the seasonal holiday it exploits as a thematic subtext and in-film catalyst, John Carpenter's "Halloween" is also fundamentally synonymous with popularising the slasher subgenre. Despite its basic concept, scope and budget, "Halloween" redefined the maxim and enacted conventions of the modern horror film paradigm, deriving a nascent dynamic whereby the figurehead of the story becomes inextricably linked with the heroine touted as a victim only to become his foe; the pursuit between the two and ensuing human collateral is relentless and inexplicable, instigating a mythology and generating a continuity franchise that appeals to new generations of horror fans.

As is typical for the genre, a remote, condensed narrative, an independent ethos and sparse produc” read more

" Will always be a favorite. Thank you John Carpenter. Jamie Lee Curtis. Donald Pleasance. Michael, the creepy kid at the beginning standing with the knife. Annie putting her finger down the steamed up glass in the car. Tommy and Lindsey playing hide and seek. "He's gonna get you. He's gonna get you." "It really was the boogeyman.""
