Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Carpenter obviously knows the genre well and he builds a properly terrifying atmosphere through his well-paced direction. It's an effective entry for its intended market.
Fresh: Halloween is an absolutely merciless thriller, a movie so violent and scary that, yes, I would compare it to Psycho.
Fresh: Halloween remains untouched -- a modern classic of the most horrific kind.
Fresh: John Carpenter's 1978 tour de force, perhaps the most widely imitated film of the 70s.
The Greatest Horror movie of all time
This is hands down the best horror film ever made. Hands down I love this movie nothing bad i have to write about. Love the story, love the suspense, love the acting. The direction to the movie was great. Scared the crap out of me when i was a kid. This movie needs to hit theaters again on halloween. Best of movie of all time. Winner by knock out.
Thank you iTunes! Halloween is a classic, and it's great to finally have the original available.
It WAS the Boogeyman...
HALLOWEEN is an eerie, surprisingly well-crafted thriller about a babysitter (Jamie Lee Curtis) who is forced to battle evil incarnate. While she and her friends are preparing for a night of tricks, treats, and horror films, a psychotic killer stalks their every move. Incredibly tense and suspenseful, Halloween is one of the greatest films ever made. 5/5, must-buy.
