Halloween (1978)

1978 Halloween Movie Film Cinema Poster Art Advance Teaser Theatrical

This modern horror classic succeeds where many in the genre don’t because director John Carpenter’s simple approach gives Halloween a frightening realism. With no special effects and very few cheap thrills, Carpenter builds the tension to unbearable heights.

A 19-year-old Jamie Lee Curtis makes her film debut as a high schooler hunted by a psychotic maniac. Out to stop the maniac is his doctor, played by Donald Pleasance in a legendary performance.

Avoid the poor 2007 remake. See this classic of cinema instead.
