TV & Satellite Week - - Films -

Cult di­rec­tor John Car­pen­ter once claimed that this sea­sonal hor­ror thriller wasn’t even re­motely scary un­til he had over­laid the film with his in­sis­tent mu­si­cal sound­track. Spawn­ing a host of aw­ful se­quels, nu­mer­ous crass im­i­ta­tions and a half­way de­cent re­make, it still packs a con­sid­er­able punch as masked killer Michael My­ers watches from the shad­ows ready to bring ter­ror into ev­ery teenager’s soon-to-be-sev­ered heart. And it turned Jamie Lee Cur­tis, mak­ing her fea­ture-film de­but, into a star al­most overnight. 1978,18, 92MIN
