AGPerson’s review published on Letterboxd:
From the moment that theme begins to play, suspense and dread fill your mind
At any moment, Michael is going to pop out and get you, until the plot deems it otherwise of course, but nevertheless you’re still anxiously waiting for his arrival
And the best part about Halloween is you literally never know where Michael will come from, forcing the audience to observe the negative space and still be proven wrong more often then not
I have many problems with the “mythos” of Michael Myers and how characters explain him, but it would be absurd to deny the ingenuity of the film as a whole
Halloween is some damn fine filmmaking, and even though I have issues with its characters, I could easily throw this on again next October to admire the powerful score, the beautiful suspense, and the obviously poor decisions that fuel a slasher flick!
