Horror movies Review

Halloween (1978)

My personal favorite, this movie could be considered the first real slasher flick as it predates a great many horror franchises. This John Carpenter and Debra Hill collaboration was once the highest grossing independant film in history, and spawned seven sequels, six with notorious serial killer Michael Myers as the villain. Donald Pleasance stars in the best role of his career as Michael’s psychiatrist Dr. Sam Loomis, the only man who knows how evil Michael is. This classic thriller was also responsible for the launch of Jamie Lee Curtis as a star in the horror genre. Setting the standard for what horror should be, Halloween is a movie that no horror fan should live without.

Synopsis:

A psychotic murderer institutionalized since childhood for the murder of his sister, escapes and stalks a bookish teenage girl and her friends while his doctor chases him through the streets.
