Ok, and now for my horror movie pick #18 for which I chose... Halloween (Carpenter, 1978). This is the perfect movie to watch this month since it is almost October 31! And what is more fun to watch than a movie about a psychotic murder who escapes a mental institution and goes on a mindless killing rampage? Carpenter's horror-thriller has become a classic and we are all familiar with Michael Myers and his famous mask. The film has a 93% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and has received rave reviews from numerous top critics. Rober Ebert said "Halloween is an absolutely merciless thriller, a movie so violent and scary that, yes, I would compare it to Psycho," and James Berardinelli of ReelViews stated, "Halloween remains untouched - a modern classic of the most horrific kind."
With its chilling music and terrifying antagonist this is certainly a film not to be missed.
