Halloween

Halloween ★★★★½

I'm struck once more by the elegance of this picture, the manner in which the camera can glide so smoothly that it's not until halfway into any given track that you realize you're on a conveyor belt feeding an incinerator and struggle against its unstoppable movement. The subtle fade-up of light that reveals Myers' face in cold blue behind Laurie remains quite possibly my favorite shot in all of horror cinema.
