#25 HALLOWEEN (1978)
DRESSES UP LIKE A GHOST
found Michael Myers to be all that scary.
His emotionless unstoppable killing machine persona wears a bit thin
rather quickly. But you have to acknowledge the fine work John
Carpenter did for launching the modern slasher genre in 1978 with the
classic, Halloween. There's plenty of "is he really dead yet?"
moments that fuel a bunch of the movie's scares, but I particularly
enjoy when Michael puts on the old fashioned ghost sheet while
wearing glasses, before he chokes a poor lass to death with a phone
cord. I think it would have been cool if he kept his look for the
remainder of the film, as well.
