Halloween Disutradarai oleh John Carpenter
The original “Halloween” always struck me as an experimental art film in a bloody exploitation mask. John Carpenter’s relentlessly terrifying masterpiece about babysitters and the murderous Michael Myers has been imitated, paid homage to and remade (an update of the original opens Friday) so many times since its premiere in 1978 that its radicalism is easy to overlook.

It should be remembered a primo model of stripped down simplicity… The film’s greatest sophistication is that it trains you how to watch and gooses you accordingly: each darkened doorway or window becomes a conscious red herring, a place where danger could come from. Like rock and roll, it’s a formula that sounds so easy, but only the purest of its practitioners can get it right.

[Michael Myers would] make his face go blank and then he’d sort of sway faintly from side to side, to suggest “unhurried walking.” The movie takes its cues from Michael’s walk. It is directed by Carpenter in thoughtfully composed CinemaScope frames, in takes that are often quite long by modern horror cinema standards, with a simple, synthesized score that’s deliberately, monotonously repetitious and enormously effective for that very reason

  • Stefan Drees's rating of the film Halloween

    One of the key elements is John Carpenter's use of slow camera movements (approaches, circles) which give us the feeling to be in a voyeuristic position. In this respect the first seven minutes - including the draw shot with the pumpkin during the main title sequence - are brillant because they establish an atmosphere of fear which is constantly retained during the whole film. Also masterly is the design of ...

  • Daniel Roque's rating of the film Halloween

    Looking back at the slasher movies from the late 70s and 80s, Jamie Lee Curtis distincts herself by acting more like a fearless Ripley from Alien than the dumb blonde scream queens of that time. She deserves better than being remembered as Dean Munsch by this generation.

  • Henri de Corinth's rating of the film Halloween

    Rewatch, 40th-anniversary screening. It’s hardly Carpenter’s best movie but seeing it projected you get much better sense of how the film exploits photography and sound, in-focus v. out-of-focus, music and stings, and how innovative it must have been in 1978. The film is at its best (and scariest) though when it merely regards The Shape as a phenomenon, in the distance, in the shadows, watching and waiting.

  • Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Halloween

    The first 10-minutes and the last 15-minute bookends are brilliantly designed, with supreme suspense and tension. Yet, Halloween missteps a lot too, like in the daytime stalking scenes. A character that is referred to as the 'bogeyman' should never have been glimpsed in the daylight, and certainly not been given the image of standing next to hung laundry or hiding behind a bedsheet/bushes. It kinda kills the effect.

  • LauraPalmer's rating of the film Halloween

    THAT MOMENT when you're watching a John Carpenter's film released in 1978 and you see the main character watching a Hawks's film released in 1951: John Carpenter would remake it in 1982. Halloween: a CLASSIC horror film with a stunning cinematography.

  • T. J. Mesen's rating of the film Halloween

    "...the main character, the guy in the mask, really isn’t altogether human. He has no characteristics. He's, uh, almost like a machine. He was just pure evil. That was what I intended to do. It's evil out of nothing, evil from no background, which completely creeps me out as a human being, that evil could arrive at my doorstep without a purpose, without a past, without an origin." – John Carpenter for THR

  • Duncan Gray's rating of the film Halloween

    Re-rating this a 5, after being unimpressed years ago. What changed? I learned to love movies for their irrationality. I'm sure on Wikipedia there's a large entry on Michael Myers, filled with canonical info from sequels and remakes. I couldn't care less. The idea of an unstoppable, irrational force is so much scarier, a bogeyman that reduces you to your childhood fears. And just when you were discovering sex, too.

  • msmichel's rating of the film Halloween

    A masterpiece of modern horror often copied but never quite duplicated for the simple fact that this originated the conceit. The 'shape' is one of the most eerie villains in screen lore and Carpenter's slow reveal wrapped in an universal story was the perfect introduction. A master class in tension, suspense and terror. Well cast with a young Curtis and a career defining turn by Pleasence at its core.
