Perhaps the most influential and successful independent film ever made, 'Halloween' is the movie that put director John Carpenter on the map as a viable filmmaker. An exercise in simple, pure horror, 'Halloween' takes us into the world of a mad killer, Michael Myers, who at a very young age stabbed his older sister to death. Locked away for many years in a mental hospital Michael escapes one night and returns to his home to continue his killing spree. Jamie Lee Curtis, in her first role, plays the resourceful babysitter who is chased by the killer on Halloween night. Produced for very little money and a tight shooting schedule, 'Halloween' was a stunning success when it was released. Written by John Carpenter and his longtime producer Debra Hill, the film set both their careers on fire, with both of them working together many times over the next 25 years. The film also made a star out of Jamie Lee Curtis and turned the slasher movie into a viable, successful genre.

'Halloween' has been copied, parodied and even turned into a franchise of its own, but the original is still considered the best of the bunch. 'Halloween' was John Carpenter's first foray into horror, and remains the standard to which all other modern horror films are measured.

 The bible of slasher films given 5star DVD treatment

| | See all Kyle89's reviews (173)

Brilliant film from a once-brilliant director. Absolute classic, revolutionary, the first of the now done-to-death "killer in a mask senselessly butchering people" horror movie. This is where it all began.

Done on a super low budget, featuring Jamie Lee Curtis in her first film, features all the cliche's you've seen a million times in horrors...but this is where they all began, this is where they were done first. Absolute classic.

The DVD is packed full of insightful special features and documentaries that cover just about everything you want to know. A must-have for fans of classic horror.
