Review by Chucky
Halloween is widely held in high regard as the original slasher movie. It's not technically the first slasher movie ever made but it's the one that usually gets the credit for kick-starting this sub-genre of horror. And that often factors into a lot of peoples opinions when they review this movie. However, I had watched so many other horror movies, including many slashers, before ever seeing this one that the originality factor of it didn't grasp me as much as it probably has with many other fans of the movie.

I still think Halloween is a very fine film, very enjoyable and very well made. There's just so many other films that I hold near and dear to my heart that in comparison to those, I am lacking the special feeling this film gives to most people.

When I first joined this website years and years ago, I had joined with Halloween being one of my favorite horror movies of all time. That idea still stands today. The story is interesting, the music is wonderful, and if you feel like having an extended edition just pop in Part II!
