    Halloween

    ★★★★

    Michael Myers doesn’t require a character. It’s the absence of his character that makes him petrifying.

    Michael Myers doesn’t need a Freudian defense to justify his actions. He’s plain evil.

    Michael Myers is one blood-curdling, spine-chilling stalker.

    ★★★★

    How could 4 people be declared guilty of a despicable crime in the absence of testimonial or physical evidence of their guilt, and with the prosecution's dependence on contradictory and insufficient admissions?

    Watching this movie was like reading a book that’s a spellbinding page-turner. The last 15 minutes were a pure adrenaline rush. That courtroom scene was riveting. My blood was boiling.

    This movie delivers a hammering rock soundtrack by Hendrix, Dylan, Bono and Gavin Friday, setting a high-speed pace…
