All time fave movie
Halloween is an absolutely merciless thriller, a movie so violent and scary that, yes, I would compare it to “Psycho.”
From a shock-and-suspense point-of-view, Halloween is the rival of Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho. With only a few arguable exceptions (such as The Exorcist), there isn't another post-1970 release that comes close to it in terms of scaring the living hell out of a viewer... A modern classic of the most horrific kind.

Did You Know?
- Donald Pleasence did all of his scenes in only 5 days of shooting. The total duration of his scenes is just over 18 minutes.
- (at around 19 mins) You can clearly see the mountains in the background, when Dr. Loomis is on the phone and sees the Rabbit in Red matchbook. Since this movie takes place in Illinois that would be impossible.
- [referring to a partially eaten dog]
- Brackett: A man wouldn't do that.
- Loomis: This isn't a man.
