Visually terrific!
By Jack Anderson on July 7, 2018

The first killing is a real thrill. We get to actually be the killer, only to discover at the end that the killer was actually a little boy. That made for a really astonishing opening sequence, in a beautiful uninterrupted shot.

The directing of this movie is really terrific. The camera is moving around like a witness. Even more than a witness, we are completely part of the story and that scary world. While this may not feel like a lot in 2018, back in 1978, that was quite an original storytelling way.

As any typical slasher movie would, the film heavily toys with the audience. Like a classical symphony, we get some very long moments and suddenly a short but impressive melody comes along and takes everything with it. So, one of the characters is left alone, washing her clothes, almost naked, stuck in a window, etc. Many opportunities for the killer to take her life. But no, we wait and wait, which makes the all thing even more fun.

Halloween is definitely a very good movie. I give it 6 out of 10.
