John Carpenter Amerika Serikat, 1978

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.
