everyday is halloween

oh man.  let's talk about classic cinema.  john carpenter's beautiful slasher halloween [1978] is still terrifying after all these years.  simple, elegant set design with just a smidge of oomph on lighting and photography.  but the magic is in the direction and the editing of this movie.  nothing fancy.  not a lot of special fx.  yet there is a dread pulsating within the film's frames.  this movie encapsulates for me halloween in the 1970s when i was still a formless wee lad.  utterly brilliant film.
