STEVEN 👻’s review published on Letterboxd:
October is right around the corner, and to celebrate, I'm going to revisit and rank the Halloween franchise completely this week. John Carpenter's 1978 original remains the most iconic in this saga, still scaring audiences all these years later -- it's timeless, and we all know it. Watching it today, I appreciate how it truly set the standards for slashers. I loved the atmosphere, the small batch of characters, and how this indie film grew popular enough to branch out for new audiences each decade after its release. Jamie Lee Curtis' first portrayal of Laurie Strode might not be my favorite, but it's easily the strongest element in here, especially when paired up with Nick Castle as The Shape. Really excited to see Kyle Richards return in Halloween Kills, as well.
