Halloween ★★½

Probably it was the hype and the love from every horror film fan, but this was quite disappointing and a huge letdown. I get that it's a film from the late 70s and that it isn't as polished as other slasher films from the following years, but my main problem with Halloween was the pace and the tone. It has some parts where I was completely entertained and excited for what was presented, but then it also had other parts where I was completely bored and tired of the characters and the plot. The elements of horror were okay, nothing really spectacular honestly, but it's been 40 years, so they were probably amazing at the time of its release.

I can see why people love this film so much and why it's considered a horror classic, but for me, it was just an okay film with some counted good moments.

Personal Ballot: 1978
