An escaped killer returns home in John Carpenter's classic.
Cast: Donald Pleasence, Jamie Lee Curtis, P.J. Soles
Easily the best horror movie ever made. R.i.p Donald Pleasance. And what can I say about Jamie Lee Curtis? The best horror actress of all time.
Watched in preparation for Halloween (2018) and it's still great
I mean... if you haven’t seen it, watch it. Made Shudder worth it
Probably the best horror movie ever. I've seen this movie dozens of times and still never get bored with it.
