Why watch this film?
Despite the success of movies like 'Friday the 13th' and 'A Nightmare on Elm Street', perhaps there is no slasher horror more iconic and memorable than 'Halloween'. Directed by the great John Carpenter, of 'The Thing', the feature film creates one of the most iconic and feared movie killers in the figure of Michael Myers - which makes a perfect contrast to Jamie Lee Curtis's character and her famous screams. It's a serial killer movie that changed the way crimes are portrayed on the big screen, with an even more accentuated coldness and a disturbing atmosphere. Here, in addition to Myers's own visuals, highlight the historic soundtrack, to the sound of a sharp piano, which seems to accompany the chill that goes down your spine as Myers goes looking for his next victim.
