Cam Smith’s review published on Letterboxd:
Five months ago, I gave this film a 5/10.
Five months later, I think to myself... what a fucking idiot I was.
John Carpenter is a legend, from his haunting and iconic score to the creation of the menacingly memorable villain Michael Myers. His odd yet effective storytelling really does rub off on you too.
Loved rewatching this. Hindsight is a wonderful thing!
PS: the fact that Lindsay was watching ‘The Thing From Another Planet’ on TV was gold, considering director Carpenter made ‘The Thing’ four years later, which is loosely based (or payed massive homage) off TTFAP. Genius!!
