_Halloween’s_ a classic movie. No doubt about it. One of the seminal films of the slasher genre, and a more-than-worthy inclusion to any Halloween season horror movie marathon. But I think people give it a reputation in terms of quality that it doesn’t fully deserve. The opening ten minutes, and the closing ten minutes, are both **brilliant**. But everything in between? It’s kind of… Somehow, both boring and annoying. The kills are good if that’s your sort of thing, but everything in the meat of _Halloween_ is old hat. Now of course it wasn’t at the time, but when I’ve spent my formative years watching other movies doing it better (and acting it better), it doesn’t really matter who did it first.

_Final rating:★★★ – I liked it. Would personally recommend you give it a go._

Review By: Gimly

Once upon a time, during a long ago (but certainly not forgotten) era, a horror film’s radio trailer would feature the chilling voice-over of a male commentator, whom, after presenting a teaser synopsis for the slasher film’s plot (over intimations of both sound and speech from the movie of course), would conclude the radio spot with the following words: ‘Coming soon to a theater near you.’ And, ‘Rated R. Under 17 not admitted without a parent.’

(Laughs) …

Those classic horror film radio trailers used to scare the weebie-jeebies out of me! But boy, did I love them wholeheartedly.

(Pondering … in remembrance)

Where John Carpenter’s independent cult opus “Halloween” is concerned, the radio trailer had been no less terrifying. In fact, it made my blood run ice cold. . .

Though Halloween, one of my most beloved horror films in cinematic history, debuted (theatrically) in 1978, it would not be until October of 1980 that my family and I would spend our “Movie Date Night” at what had been a gorgeous movie theater in Gurnee, IL., buying hot dogs, Raisinettes, popcorn, and drinks from its state-of-the-art concession areas, and bracing ourselves for the terror which we were about to watch on one of the theater’s humongous screens. Even from that time, I had cover and poster love: Book covers, album covers, and yes, movie posters. It was the artwork. Cover and poster art has always fascinated me. And upon seeing the poster art for Halloween, I fell smitten. For it had been one of the most unique movie posters that I’d ever seen at that time … And I never forgot it. The artwork, featuring a man’s hand wrapped around the handle of a butcher’s knife, its pointed tip shown to be in alignment with the face of a Jack O’ Lantern, was some of the most creative – not to mention original – movie poster art that my eyes had ever beheld at that time. To this day, it STILL reverberates. I can remember my reaction to it so well, what just standing in that beautiful lobby and staring at the poster for Halloween as it hung in its frame on the movie house wall. Too good. Too good.

‘The Night He Came Home!’ …

If there is one horror film antagonist who has left a permanent emboss of the word “terror” on my psyche, it’s Michael Myers. From the moment Halloween opened on the screen, fear came along to take up its abode within my entire being. The score, titled “Halloween Theme”, which is also the (Main Title), was so eerily distinctive that the entire theater audience fell into silence – every patron hanging on to every piercing chord of it … Perhaps me, especially, considering my own gift of music. The incredible John Carpenter not only directed and co-wrote (with Debra Hill) the screenplay for Halloween, but he also composed the entire soundtrack. . .himself. Carp is a badass for sure!

Moving on. . .

Set in the fictive town of Haddonfield, IL., this legendary cult film opens to a crowd of children out trick-or-treating on Halloween night. And these candy revelers include a six-year-old boy named Michael, whose choice of costume is a clown suit with a mask. All is well; a seemingly fun-filled All Hollows’ Eve night … Until Michael returns home from his evening of candy collecting, walks, almost mechanically, into his family’s kitchen, selects a butcher’s knife from the cutlery set, waits until his older sister’s boyfriend (who’s just finished having sexual relations with her) leaves, then walks, mechanically, upstairs to that same sister’s bedroom – catching her unawares. When she turns around (still naked after her sexual escapade) to address him as her younger brother, Michael begins to take his turn penetrating her. . .with the sharp point of the knife. And he doesn’t stop his blade puncturing until his sister collapses. He then walks back downstairs and goes out in the front yard to wait. Their parents soon return home to find Michael just standing outside – his face still covered by his mask – with the bloodied knife in his young hand. One of his parents lifts the mask, and we get our first glimpse at the six-year-old face of Michael Myers. The year was 1963.

That was just the opening.

It would be fifteen years later (in 1978) before the now 21-year-old Michael, escaped from the Smith’s Grove Sanitarium, could return to Haddonfield for the purpose of laying claim on his former childhood home: Sitting unsold since the time he murdered his sister, ended up at Smith’s Grove as the result of it, and succumbed to the abandonment of his parents. When Michael Myers returned to Haddonfield, all Hell broke loose … Literally.

A phenomenally directed cinematic ouvre, Halloween stars Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode, the teenaged protagonist who becomes the hunted of Michael Myers; Donald Pleasence, who portrays Michael’s psychiatrist, Dr. Sam Loomis; Brian Andrews, who was cast to play Tommy Doyle; and Nancy Loomis as Annie Brackett, one of Laurie’s two best friends, respectively.

Shot on a $325,000.00 budget, Halloween would go on to earn over $71 million worldwide … For a reason.

A true cult legend is this Carpenter masterpiece. It is sheer filmmaking ingenuity, a landmark of cinema, and more than worthy of each one of its five stars.

The Absolute Finest
Halloween is not only the godfather of all slasher movies but the greatest horror movie ever! John Carpenter and Debra Hill created the most suspenseful, creepy, and terrifying movie of all time with this classic chiller. Michael Myers is such a phenomenal monster in this movie that he inspired scores of imitators, such as Jason Vorhees (Friday the 13th), The Miner (My Bloody Valentine), and Charlie Puckett (The Night Brings Charlie). Okay, so I got a little obscure there, but it just goes to show you the impact that this movie had on the entire horror genre. No longer did a monster have to come from King Tut’s tomb or from Dr. Frankenstein’s lab. He could be created in the cozy little neighborhoods of suburbia. And on The Night He Came Home…Haddonfield, Illinois and the viewers would never be the same. There are many aspects of this movie that make it the crowning jewel of horror movies. First is the setting…it takes place in what appears to be a normal suburban neighborhood. Many of us who grew up in an area such as this can easily identify with the characters. This is the type of neighborhood where you feel safe, but if trouble starts to brew, nobody wants to lift a finger to get involved (especially when a heavy-breathing madman is trying to skewer our young heroine.) Along with the setting, the movie takes place on Halloween!! The scariest night of the year! While most people are carving jack-o-lanterns, Michael Myers is looking to carve up some teenie-boppers. Besides the setting, there is some great acting. Jamie Lee Curtis does a serviceable job as our heroine, Laurie Strode, a goody-two-shoes high-schooler who can never seem to find a date. However, it is Donald Pleasance, as Dr. Sam Loomis, who really steals the show. His portrayal of the good doctor, who knows just what type of evil hides behind the black eyes of Michael Myers and feels compelled to send him to Hell once and for all, is the stuff of horror legend. However, it is the synthesizer score that really drives this picture as it seems to almost put the viewer into the film. Once you hear it, you will never forget it. I also enjoy the grainy feel to this picture. Nowadays, they seem to sharpen up the image of every movie, giving us every possible detail of the monster we are supposed to be afraid of. In Halloween, John Carpenter never really lets us get a complete look at Michael Myers. He always seems like he is a part of the shadows, and, I think that is what makes him so terrifying. There are many scenes where Michael is partly visible as he spies on the young teens (unbeknownst to them), which adds to his creepiness. If you think about, some wacko could be watching you right now and you wouldn’t even know it. Unfortunately for our teenagers (and fortunately for us horror fans), when they find Michael, he’s not looking for candy on this Halloween night..he’s looking for blood. Finally, Michael Myers, himself, is a key element to this movie’s effectiveness. His relentless pursuit of Laurie Strode makes him seem like the killer who will never stop. He is the bogeyman that will haunt you for the rest of your life. So,if you have not seen this movie (if there are still some of you out there who haven’t, or even if you have), grab some popcorn, turn off every light, pop this into the old DVD and watch in fright. Trick or Treat!
