Halloween (1978)

The original and still the best entry in the long running Halloween franchise. John Carpenter got everything right here, from the tone to the casting and even that iconic theme song. Halloween is justly remembered as one of the best horror films ever.

Halloween (1978)

Halloween is retroactively marred by its progeny. As a historical pillar of the slasher genre everything is intact and entertaining enough, but all cylinders aren't firing well enough for it to have aged perfectly. That said it's a creepy, well told story worthy of respect.
