Sean’s review published on Letterboxd:
Halloween was one of the first horror films I ever saw as a kid, along with Jaws, The Shining, and Poltergeist. I haven't seen Halloween in forever, so what better way to start October?
It's hard to say how iconic the film would be without John Carpenter's score. So simple, yet so effectively haunting. It sets the mood for what would become the franchise, and remains one of the best horror scores ever. Also love his tracking shots, sometimes it feels like there's no camera at all. This film would set the standard for horror movies for the better part of the next decade, and still holds up today.
