Thomas Lewry’s review published on Letterboxd:
"I spent eight years trying to reach him, and then another seven trying to keep him locked up because I realized that what was living behind that boy's eyes was purely and simply... evil."
The yearly tradition of revisiting the immortal classic
The best killer in a slasher film
The best musical score for a slasher
The best use of a William Shatner mask
The best opening to a slasher film
The best choice for a car song ("Don't Fear the Reaper")
The best fuck-all reason to get a character to take their clothes off (spilling a little bit of butter)
The best final girl ever
The best final battle ever
The best ambiguous ending to a slasher film ever
The best slasher film ever
So as you can tell, I think very highly of John Carpenter's influential horror masterpiece. One of my all time favourites and always a perfect way to finish "Horroctober"
