Halloween (1978)

John Carpenter’s legendary classic still hasn’t lost any of its charm or suspense over the last four decades. The movie’s elements come together very nicely, from a crisp screenplay to likable actors and characters to several tense moments, but this movie’s real power lies in its music and atmosphere. Carpenter nails the carnival-like excitement of Halloween night extremely well, gradually but effectively reaching its pulse-pounding climax like a well-oiled suspense machine. Jamie Lee Curtis makes for an unusual and extremely likable lead here, and she shares notable chemistry with everyone on screen.

Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)
