A good and well made movie.

One of, if not THE best, old-school horror flicks! Every horror movie buff has to watch Halloween, even though it likes a little outdated today. The score however passes the test of time, is a perfect match for the movie and will give you goosebumps.

I think this is John Carpenter's best movie, which is sad, because if he could have repeated what he did with the original Halloween movie, I would have loved it!

I actually thought it was pretty bad. I dont mind the lack of gore, in fact I liked it, but I guess it had to be seen at the time. Does not pass the test of time
