Halloween ★★★★½

Film #15 in my 31 Days of Horror 2021 / Hooptober 8

Viewed on Netflix

Aka John Carpenter's Halloween, The Babysitter Murders

I've only seen the Original, III, and the 2018 sequel so this franchise remains a blindspot for me. However I'm looking to reticfy that this October by ticking off three of the timelines;

Season of the Witch

So first up is a rewatch of the 1978 classic which it appears I haven't seen since 2017. This time around I was struck by how well paced it is. Technically not that much happens but the sense of foreboding (helped by the iconic music) grabbed me from the beginning until the finale.

And now onto the Choose Your Own Horror of the various sequels...
