John Carpenter's Halloween is not to be forgotten amongst the various sequels, prequels and remakes. With Carpenter's legendary elctro synth score setting the tension on high as Micheal Myers goes on a halloween night killing spree in a white picket street in America. Jamie Leigh Curtis' performance gives her a place alongside her mother for best horror actresses. Donald Plesence is quotetastic as Myers ex-doctor and the seemingly unstoppable Myers is horrifyingly creepy, the dead face mask inspiring numerous other horror directors along the way. Halloween sets the rules for horror films and if you haven't seen it before, turn all the lights off and get set for some truely shocking moments.
