Zachary’s review published on Letterboxd:
Much like Suspiria, the scariest thing about Halloween is the music. It isn’t perfect, but the end and the beginning, the parts that focus on Michael and Laurie, are some of the best parts of any horror movie. Curtis and Pleasence carry the film dramatically, doing so more than well enough to keep things interesting whenever Michael is offscreen. I’m glad I got to see it in theaters before the new one comes out and I hear that one’s got more humor, so hopefully addressing my biggest problem with this one—the dialogue. It’s still a total classic regardless.
