Halloween (1978 Original) Review by The Creature
10 out of 10 Skulls
[ Overall 91% Approval Based on 20 Reviews ]
Halloween is horror film classic that must be seen by every true horror fan. All I can say is that John Carpenter is the man, and is quite possibly the best horror film director out there. Here's a quick plot - Laurie Strode babysits some neighborhood kids on Halloween night. She doesn't know&...
Halloween Review by eugenevdw@lantic.net
10 out of 10 Skulls
[ Overall 91% Approval Based on 20 Reviews ]
Halloween is one of those movies that gets you skin deep! It is in my opinion, the scariest movie of all time. Michael Myers is the best boogeyman ever! He was just so terrifying! What makes Halloween so special is that there was no special effects where you can tell how computer animated it is, thi...
Halloween (1978) Review by Danielle1989
9 out of 10 Skulls
[ Overall 91% Approval Based on 20 Reviews ]
I would consider this movie to be the grand-daddy of horror. Carpenter introduced a chilling new horror. Not in the sense where there are countless bodies and blood, but having a story where a monster can be born even in a suburban area. Carpenter took an innocent town, in this case Haddonfield, and...

I started watching this movie expecting to be creeped out, but by the end my face looked like this, O___o, yes ugly. Well, for one thing, Jamie Lee Curtis confused me. She looked like she was 30 (no offense...) and I thought the little boy that she babysat was her kid at first. Yes, I know this...
Halloween (1978) Review by AgingHorrorFan
10 out of 10 Skulls
[ Overall 91% Approval Based on 20 Reviews ]
John Carpenter's tour de force is perhaps the most widely imitated film of all time. Without it there would be no Jason, Freddy or the many slasher icons of the 1980s. Nor would we have the slasher film as it exists today. But what people forget is that Halloween is easily one of the best films ev...
Halloween Review by Poltergeist
10 out of 10 Skulls
[ Overall 91% Approval Based on 20 Reviews ]
Halloween (1978) is the all-time classic horror film and it still works.  It will scare the goosebumps off of you.  We all remember Janet Leigh (who passed away October 3, 2004) from the Alfred Hitchcock film, PSYCHO (1960).  Her daughter, Jamie Lee Curtis (also of Tony Curtis) is the...

[ Overall 91% Approval Based on 20 Reviews ]
When Halloween was released in 1978 in literally had people jumping out of their seats. It is without a doubt one of the best horror movies ever made. It gave birth to one of horrors most famous villains and spawned seven sequels and a remake. I have seen it at least twelve times and I still feel ...

THis movie is one of my all time favorite slasher movies, not only that, but one of my favorite horror movies in generaly, along with many many others. If you are a horror fan and have not seen, the original, this then you a fucking retard and are not a true horror fan and should get off the fucking...

Okay the film that started it all, the mask, the man,the evil. Aside from Halloween Three this are the best slashers ever... although I do love my Friday movies and TCM, i love these more... Okay to the review now Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) is a young student in highschool, her brother Michae...

Perhaps the granddaddy of all slasher films. This movie the standard for the other films of that genre.  I'm not going into the plot for alot of you out there has seen it, and  I don't want to ruin it for all the other people who have not seen it. The one thing that movie does not have ha...
Halloween (1978) Review by Dirigible
9 out of 10 Skulls
[ Overall 91% Approval Based on 20 Reviews ]
"The night he came home" was the night the face of Horror changed forever. John Carpenter. The name is synonymous with the likes of...well...God. Carpenter stands at the top of the mountain of Horror reigning down over the many, many minions and wannabes. "Halloween" is his signature piece. In 1978 ...

This is a classic movie. No horror buff can truely call themselves a horror fan unless they have seen or own this movie. This movie inspired films throughout the 80s and has been reconized as one of the best horror movies to have been made in the past 40 years. This movie is directed by John Carpen...

Plot: Micheal Myers kills his sister on Halloween night of 1963, and was sent to a mental institution. Now, at the age of 21, he has escaped and now wishes to return to his hometown for more murder. Loomis, his docter, is now in hot pursuit. After a series of kills, the man ...
Halloween (1978) Review by Ash's missing hand

[ Overall 91% Approval Based on 20 Reviews ]
John Carpenter's Halloween is a thriller that gives no mercy. It is violent, scary, creepy, terrifying and is one of the best horror movies ever made. It is about a character referred to Evil Personified. A six-year-old boy commits a murder and is sent away, and is described by his psychiatrist (Don...

[ Overall 91% Approval Based on 20 Reviews ]
The original "Halloween" is the definitve Halloween movie. John Carpenter's ultimate boogeyman flick is as creepy as they come, and while there are plenty of homages to Alfred Hitchcock's horror masterpiece "Psycho", "Halloween" is very much its own work. But it's also in th...
Halloween (1978) Review by ShawnStaggs
10 out of 10 Skulls
[ Overall 91% Approval Based on 20 Reviews ]
John Carpenter's Halloween, by all accounts, is a classic in the annals of horror. Halloween has a way of terrifying people, and probably always will. In 1963, six year old Michael Audrey Myers brutally stabbed his 17 years old sister to death on Halloween night. When he is 21 and set to be release...
Halloween (1978) Review by Darant'e

[ Overall 91% Approval Based on 20 Reviews ]
The thing about the whole "Halloween" franchise is that it always catch my eye. This first one was outstanding. I really liked this first one because it very original. I liked to look at a horror movie that I know can really happen. That's how I begin getting scared. The actress Jamie Lee Curtis w...
Halloween (1978) Review by Moviemaven
9 out of 10 Skulls
[ Overall 91% Approval Based on 20 Reviews ]
What is it about masked killers that walk around really slow? Halloween is the film that began the craving for watching defenseless teenagers get the ax. It broke onto the scene (or screen) in 1978 and has never looked back. It is the quintessential Halloween film. No horror fan should claim to be s...

One of John Carpenter's first is his worst. First of all i must say this is a dumb movie and how it got so big and got so many sequels i will never know. Because the only thing good i see about this film is its music. This movie is flat out boring no good special fx nothing scary about this movie un...
Halloween (1978) Review by Mr. Black
10 out of 10 Skulls
[ Overall 91% Approval Based on 20 Reviews ]
The movie that started the masked slasher craze and has spawned some pretty good sequels (except for that awful III). The movie was original, had a great plot, and had some very good acting in it. 1978 was a good year for film, and this movie was one of the reasons why. It wasn't a gore flick but ...
