Halloween

Halloween ★★★★½

One thing I feel like gets lost today, where we have lived through the legacy and franchise of this film - is how eerie on a aspect the fact that Michael doesn't talk is. Here, much more than in later films or ripoffs, we get long pov shots that really invite us to wonder what Michael is thinking and it's our minds that really bridge the gap and creates horror. Why does Michael follow Tommy in the car, etc. It's what makes that head tilt classic.

How bad at sex are the dudes in this movie, though? They're done in seconds!

Stone cold classic. No matter how many times I see it, I always forget how Laurie manages to get out of that closet.
