Film of the day: Halloween


John Carpenter’s classic horror stars Jamie Lee Curtis (daughter of Psycho shower kill, Janet Leigh) as a highschool teen stalked by a psychotic masked killer.

This is a masterpiece of suspense and merciless psychological build up as the homicidal maniac returns to a suburban neighbourhood where he once lived and, as a troubled child, slaughtered his sister.

Carpenter’s expert storytelling builds to a bloody crescendo as the masked killer seeks out and dispatches local teens – who should know better than to investigate what it was that made that creepy sound – and sharpens his knives for some quality time with all-American girl next door, Curtis.
