Halloween (1978)

Put on your favorite William Shatner mask and pop some popcorn for this slasher classic. I remember this movie being a lot more scary, but it still is pretty good for how much it has aged. I love Michael Myers as the bad guy, he’s silent and deadly. The scene with him wearing the bed sheets as a ghost with the glasses is classic. Jamie Lee Curtis did excellent in this for it being her first feature film. The music of this movie is the real star, John Carpenter does a good job building tension with the music and even when to make the film entirely silent. It just makes you hold your breath in anticipation. Donald Pleasence is also great as the great Doctor Loomis, he is very convincing when he tells people that Myes is not to be trifled with. The timing of this film is also great, Halloween is my favorite holiday and nothing is scarier than a psycho killer loose on the streets while everyone is wearing a mask.

80/100
