Denis’s review published on Letterboxd:
Yes, I make it an occasion every time I watch this movie. Which means I turned the lights off, lit pumpkin candles, opened my bedroom window to let the cool air in and snuggled up with my Halloween VHS blanket. And of course I have my beistle diecut pajamas on too.
This is my first time checking out the 4K disc on a tv that can actually take advantage of it. Looks great! It really does brighten up the things you want bright and darken the things you want dark without any color bleeding. If there's any movie I'll notice a difference in, it's this one.
I love this movie, dearly. It kick started my love of the holiday of Halloween, horror and my love of movies in general. I don't think I'll ever reach a point in my life where it isn't entertaining, satisfying, beautiful and fun. I would give this movie an 11/10 if I could. I swear I'm tempted to just let it play again.
BUT instead, I will perform my usual ritual and immediately follow it up with the mighty HALLOWEEN 2!
