Halloween (1978) Review
Written by: ShawnStaggs
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 released, he escapes, and heads back to his childhood home, Haddonfield, Illinois.
From there he goes on a killing spree trying to reach his youngest sister - Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis).
Although some of the acting is rough, not many horror fans will disagree that Halloween is the master in slasher films. The story is simple, yet brilliant. The characters are etched in the stone wall of horror, and Donald Pleasance was a master in his time and art.
Halloween will continue to be historical...and Michael Myers will continue to haunt people for generations.
Cause like Tommy Doyle said..."You can't kill the Bogey Man."
