This is what got me started on horror from a young age. Michael Myers, Sam Loomis, Laurie Strode- classic.
The iconic classic we all know is successful for its quietness, simplicity, and style. The safe suburban setting disrupted by an outside creep one Halloween night. Its bare realism and bleakness deliver a moody atmosphere, and the soundtrack is phenomenal. On a side note: I find it odd how much its sequels and remakes would depend on the narrative and characters, because in this film there is no motive, just 'chance'. Laurie and Loomis aren't what make Halloween scary, it's that we too can be the victims of the masked stalker.
Best ever!!!!! Nuff said.
Such a classic that will live on as the best horror movie ever made
