FYI/ADVISORY- MISSING SCENES;NOT AN UNCUT VERSION OF THE FILM---The copy that I picked up is a 2007 re-issue of the film by Starz Entertainment, but it has scenes missing out it. If you a are a die hard fan of the original and know the film scene by scene you will notice they cut out things in this re-issue copy from 2007. This copy is not the UNCUT version.

Cheesy, nostalgic, creepy and all around an October classic. I watch it every year and it just puts you in the perfect October mood.

This was an awesome, creepy show!! It wasn’t as good as the new 2018 Halloween but it was still good! (Probably the only person that thinks that)!

No subtitles, but then, who needs the dialogue to understand what's going on? When I saw it at the time of its initial release 40 years ago I could barely stay in my seat it was so scary. Watching it again now it does not disappoint, and it's still scary. It is a really well-done movie. And Pasadena and Hollywood, where most of it was shot, are beautiful.

Truly the greatest slasher film ever made. Only a few others like The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and Scream can stand with it.

The movie that started the slasher genre.

This slasher/horror film is about a psychotic killer by the name of Michael Myers who never seems to be satisfied for his blood lust. He tends to make his way out into the open every Halloween night where he finds himself a new victim. The movie series is well known in the horror movie community since the masked murderer is now quite the horror staple. Although each movie seems to be fairly repetitive, they never really disappoint. I would rate this slasher film 3/5 stars and recommend it to anyone who is familiar with the franchise and this spooky tale. @The_Reviewer of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Halloween is arguably the greatest of all of the old slasher films. It carries the absolute fear atmosphere from Friday the 13th into an even more terrifying and relatable environment, regular suburbia. Most teenagers who saw this film when it was released were definitely scared out of their socks, because they more than likely lived in similar neighbourhoods to the one featured in Halloween. The movie is absolutely terrifying, with incredible sound design and a terrifying killer who is constantly menacing in the background of the film. The atmosphere makes this film what it is. This film is a must watch for any horror fan. 5/5 @ecozones of the Teen Review Board of the Hamilton Public Library

Though mostly steeped in the scifi/horror genres, John Carpenter is a talented, muti-faceted filmmaker whose virtuosity often goes underappreciated, and Halloween is his minimalistic masterpiece. In part a tribute to Psycho's simplistic morbidity (Halloween even stars Janet Leigh's daughter, Jamie Lee Curtis), the film ushered in the era of slasher flicks, but was never surpassed and arguably never equaled. A perfect horror film.

I had just finished watching this movie for the 40th year anniversary. It is still a good movie after seeing so many times. For a low budget film, this series did extremely well. I wonder where "Halloween" will take us next...

"I met this 6-year-old child with this blank, pale, emotionless face, and the blackest eyes; the Devil's eyes. I spent eight years trying to reach him, and then another seven trying to keep him locked up because I realized that what was living behind that boy's eyes was purely, and simply...evil."
