Horror Fanatic Challenge #14 - Favourite Indie Horror
Halloween (1978) - One of the best indie horror movies indeed.
Halloween is one of those movies that gets my skin deep. It is a simple movie told very well. The music is perfect and is one of the most haunting scores. Michael Myers is the best boogeyman ever! He was just so terrifying!
What makes Halloween so special is that there was no special effects where you can tell how computer animated it is, this was on a low budget and had a one note score, yet managed to scare the hell out of people. 36 years and this movie still has the same effect as it did in '78.
Halloween is an absolute terrific movie that breaks boundaries and makes you lock the doors, bolt your windows, and turn off the lights! It's very well made and has more psychological elements to it than you might realize at first glance.
If you haven't seen this movie yet, you must check it out. The cast is all terrific. I wish they had never made sequel after sequel. The first one was by far the best and should have ended like it did without having a sequel. It was fun to see Jamie Lee Curtis in the movie. She hasn't seemed to age (she's just as gorgeous today, without the hairdo and seventies clothes). The scenes through the mask are one of the scariest things ever!
