Halloween (1978)

Unread post by jemiNii » 4 months ago

Halloween is a 1978 American slasher film directed and scored by John Carpenter, co-written with producer Debra Hill, and starring Donald Pleasence and Jamie Lee Curtis in her film debut. Originally a single film, it is the first installment in the Halloween franchise.

Halloween was produced on a budget of $300,000 and grossed $47 million at the box office in the United States and $23 million internationally for a total of $70 million worldwide, selling almost 30 million tickets in 1978. It became one of the most profitable independent films. Primarily praised for its direction and musical score, many critics credit the film as the first in a long line of slasher films inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho (1960). In 2006, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”.

The sleeper of the century and the first of the modern horror franchises. John Carpenter’s low budget suburban slasher movie lurched out of nowhere to become one of the most infuential pictures of all time, changing the face of the genre for decades. Followed by seven sequels and Rob Zombie’s remakes.
