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.

"My all-time favorite scary movie. Always. I watch this every year on Halloween. It is an absolute classic of the genre. Teens, sex, monster, holiday. It has everything and it didn't need gore for scares. Just a man in a mask. โ€ข Most well-known line: But you can't kill the boogeyman. โ€ข Most well-known line: Was it the boogeyman? As a matter of fact, it was. โ€ข Trivia: The mask was a store bought Captain Kirk mask, altered."
