My favorite film of all time!!!! This is what made me a horror movie junkie. I use to stay up late at night when I was 5 and watch this
A friend of mine actually said this, and it's the perfect description. "Halloween brought evil to white suburban America. And it put fear into the hearts of everyone who thought they were safe." It's also always been my favourite horror film personally.
