  1. John Carpenter is an absolute genius!!! Halloween is a must see movie. The best horror movie to date and there will never be another movie that even comes close to this one. Everyone should grab a bowl of popcorn and sit next to someone(or something) that you can grab a hold of, and enjoy this masterpiece!

    1. Yeah, my favorite scary movie of ALL time! No blood, guts or gore and it isn’t needed. Michael Meyers is the best. Just one look at him even in the daytime is absolutely creepy but he keeps you wanting more! And who doesn’t love Jamie Lee Curtis????

  2. Halloween is the greatest of all the psychotic or masked killer movies. It’s the only one of any significance being played on actual Halloween and I love that they put it on as a marathon days before and on Halloween. Don’t ever change this!

    1. Can you please play Friday the 13,Halloween with Jamie Lee Curtis-all of them including Halloween:Reserection,and H2O:Twenty years later,and Nightmare on Elm Street? These are my favorite horror movie franchises. Thank you.
