Aroview: Landmark horror film is distinguished by direction that gives a constant sense of impending doom, yet provides constant surprises - unlike the countless imitations and four worthless sequels it spawned.

5 stars (Exceptional) One of the greatest horror films ever, this John Carpenter creation is still seriously creepy, and Michael Myres is still a great psycho. The beginning of one of the most successful horror franchises ever made.~Tom H
5 stars (Exceptional) Laugh while you can at the B-grade script and acting, because the masterful camerawork, taut editing, and eerie music will eventually have you in a firm suspense-stranglehold despite yourself. One of the quintessential popcorn fright-flicks.~fairbrother
