Not only one of the best horror movies of all time, but just flat out one of the best movies of all time. Seeing it on the big screen is a whole new experience.

Metacritic

100

Halloween is an absolutely merciless thriller, a movie so violent and scary that, yes, I would compare it to “Psycho.”

Metacritic review by Roger Ebert

Chicago Sun-Times
100

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.
