Shaun’s review published on Letterboxd:
"It's Halloween; everyone's entitled to one good scare." - Brackett
Wanted to watch this in the cinema last week but I only noticed on the day that it was playing therefor it was fully booked unfortunately (That score would have been something else). Anyway it got me in the mood to watch it earlier than usual in October. There's not much I can say that hasn't been said already. Except that I've always enjoyed Halloween but never loved it for some reason or other. It does live upto being hailed as a modern classic, its influence on horror can't be questioned. It's not the first slasher but after multiple re-watches it's a favourite. The mechanics, the suspense it draws - captivate me more each time.
