My 50 Favorite Flicks • #18

Michael Myers, no not the Shrek one, the other one!

Halloween (1979)
18
Let’s talk about scary, creepy, suspenseful, horror.  John Carpenter sure knows how to make you squirm, and Halloween does it in various ways.  I have been a super fan of Halloween for a long time now, and the simplicity of the Michael Myers character  mixed with no explanation as to why he is on a murderous rampage makes it a quite down to earth horror flick. Later sequels will draw ties to other characters giving him a motive, and making him an unstoppable monster.  But if you stick with just the original movie, you won’t be disappointed.  And maaaaaybe you can throw H20 in there as a true sequel to the original!
