Halloween (1978) Trailer

John Carpenter’s HALLOWEEN premiered on October 25th, 1978, not in Los Angeles with a big event at Mann’s Chinese Theater, instead it opened in Kansas City. It did quite well there and opened up in Chicago, and then earned showings in New York. From there, it had a platform release across the country, playing in different cities at different times.

Over 31 years later, the movie has made its money back more than 200 times! This earned it the title of the most successful independent horror movie of all time.

  1. This movie including Exorcist, Friday the 13th, Child's Play, and Nightmare on Elm Street made me lose endless nights of sleep as a kid and just set the mood right every Halloween. Humanity needs a reset button seriously I miss the days.

  2. I don't understand why people are sucking this movie's dick so hard, I don't know how good it was when it came out, but it's trash now.

    0 character development, I really don't care who dies in this movie, everyone is utterly boring, including the bad guy.
    pile on the cliches, hope you have a dump truck the size of a country.
    let's show a villain stalking people for 55 minutes before he kills anyone, scariest part of this film was that window being smashed out of nowhere in the killer's house

    ohhh but 40 years ago it was new, oh 40 years ago it was the best, well sport, now it's one of the most boring movies I ever watched.

    ever heard of the thing by john carpenter? that movie is an old horror movie, and that is a masterpiece! not this crap.

  3. To me this is the best Halloween movie made out of all 12 of them as it lost its initial impact to scare viewers by the time Halloween II came out in 1981 & if memory serves me right this was the only one out of all the Halloween movies that John Carpenter Directed/Wrote & Composed the music for…

    Yes he wrote/produced & composed a few of the other Halloween films but this was his big breakthrough film that helped him get other film's he went on to Direct greenlit & he also had more say by producing them but again this movie is best out of all the Halloween films…

    Why! Because they were on such a low show String budget that they had to create ideas on how to shoot the film & most times when directors have had to do this they've created some of their best work & John Carpenter along with Debra Hill/the film crew & actor's all pitched in to make this movie work on many levels…

    Being a movie with such a low budget made them all push beyond what they thought they could do & being such a low funded film actually helped this movie as they had to really pull off many tricks to make this film a great movie & also a great horror movie based on being stalked by a relentless unstoppable killer that just refuses to die to the point that you do believe that the character of Michael Myers must be made of pure (supernatural) evil, as how could he continue to live after being supposedly shot/stabbed/hanged/cut to pieces & shot by guns that he must be some sort of evil personified within the body of Michael Myers…

    They were forced to beg borrow & come up with ideas on the spot as the shooting of this film was " guerrilla like " in that it was a constant challenge to come up with ideas on how to best do the shots with next to barely any things that a backed fully funded movie with a lot of money behind it wouldn't have had issues with funding & how to go about filming this movie…

    Many viewers forget that in the course of this the Crew along with John Carpenter came up with some inventive ways of filming & the scene that you see through the eyes of the mask of Mike Myers walking up to/around & then inside the house & up the stairs was filmed in one continuous shot & i think that was a first in the film industry… No cuts/editing & shooting different parts but just one continuous ongoing walk seen through the eyes of the movies supernatural & unstoppable killer…

    I could be wrong about that scene being the first ever of a one continuous shot that follows the movement & seen through the eyes of the killer Michael Myers but I think it was…

    It was so under produced that the actors turned up in their own clothes & dud their own make up as Debra Hill had to scrape together a budget of 300 to $325.000 dollars to pay for everything & what a financial return they got when it became a hit & rightly a cult classic…

    I remember John Carpenter saying in an interview that sure there were plenty of horror movies but not one based on & around the time of Halloween & that's where the seed for his movie was planted…

    Yes there were plenty of other horror genre films being made but none about the murder's happening over the period of Halloween & about this mythical supernatural unstoppable killing machine that was based on a child killer who was imprisoned after killing his older sister…

    And the only reason given for this kid doing this horrific act which was brilliantly described by Donald Pleasance character as Pure Evil within the body of a child that he thought he could help but came to realise that darker forces were at work that prevented him from doing this & this can be used as an allegory of the times in history when huge horrors were taken place & no one either could stop it from happening or tried to stop it from happening & this is why I've always liked John Carpenter's films as he'll give you what you want within the film he directs but there can usually hidden allegories within his movies & another great horror director for doing this was George A Romero's Zombie based movies as these were horror movies that were speaking about the times we are living in & how human beings were living their lives like the walking dead…

    I could've described this better but it's the back of 4am & I only came on to comment about the fact I just found out that there is yet another Halloween movie due out in 2020…

    Come on Hollywood come out with some New & Original scripts/screen plays & then the movies of this instead of remaking movies to death…

    How many times can you make/remake or reenvision a particular movie franchise that's made so many times that it's just ludicrous now…

    Theres no meat left on the bone of Halloween & the story of Michael Myers wanting to track down any of his living relatives & kill them… We get it & know Michael Myers is an unstoppable entity but that doesn't mean you can't stop just churning out these films & we at 12 now (I believe) by the time Halloween 2020 is released…

    Less Is Always More & John Carpenter used this premise within the making of quite a few of his films, even the horrors of the grotesque creature effects in the cult classic remake of John Carpenter's " The Thing " knew not to show you who was taken over by this creature at every possible turn so you didn't really know who it was & that gave this movie a scarier premise even though I was still packed with great practical effects for it's time as John Carpenter knew that when showing the creature/alien when he had to it was in full tilt mode bit then you were left wondering who's the next one that might be this alien, which was something that the remake of The Thing completely got wrong in alot of the scenes as it showed the viewer too much of who was actually be taking over by this alien rather than the alien entity waiting only to expose itself by either attacking & taking over another character or when it felt threatened & concerned into a situation were it had to show its real identity & this was done to great effect when they are testing the blood samples & seeing if the blood would react when attacked via a hot heatened up piece of wire as it was theorized early on that this alien creature would break off & tear itself apart in an attempt to escape capture or being killed as it was described as a creature of many different lifeforms that would separate to protect the overall lifeforms it's taken over…

    Again I could've described this better but it's late & now the back of 4am but you'll get the general idea of my whole point is less is more onscreen & the amount of films made on one subject matter…

    I will always watch John Carpenter's Halloween & his other movies that went on to become classics as he at least tried to keep you guessing & also scare out of your wits at the same time…

    Let's not forget that he's also directed other movies outwith the genre of horror & can make an urban thriller/shootout film like Assault On Precinct 13 or Starman & Big Trouble In Little China just to name a few of the other films he went on to direct & garnered cult status with practically all of his movies…

    I'll no doubt watch Halloween 2020 once it comes out on to a TV or Cable channel many years down the line from now but I don't expect to see or learn anything new about this franchise of films that like its title character wont just crawl away & die…

    Basically Enough Is Enough but horror fans out there want to go to the cinema to watch this then who am I to say they can't & I hope it delivers everything you hope this franchise of films is known for, but not I, as I've seen enough of them & would like to see the time & money spent on new films with origin stories that i haven't seen before or have been made too many times to the point of utter boredom…

  4. First film great all the others shite , money making crap for the stupid people and the money grabbing actors. SHITE, Jamie lee is fuckin dreadful in the one I'm putting myself through now. You're not that special hun. You maybe married to a "lord" but that's the British people paying public money, honey… anyway I enjoyed the first film this one is fuckin shit

  5. Halloween anthem in Cleveland! https://youtu.be/OEGUU1ai3nc
    Remember the Positive Music
    Month is October.

  6. I came here after watched Helloween 2018. Jamie Lee looks beatiful here meanwhile she's being a granny in 2018 Helloween 😅

  7. 2018 Halloween > 1978 Halloween. 2/3 of this movie was Michael Myers just stalking Laurie Strode which got really monotonous. Although the 2018 characters were dumber, the tension that you’d expect in a horror movie was ubiquitous in the film.
