Great artwork! Need to rewatch the film though... only seen it once several years ago and wasn't the biggest fan. I imagine it'll be a film I'll enjoy more the second time around though now that I know what to expect - I originally found it a little slow and lacking.

i had a good chat with a mate on this topic a while back. :coffee: he said he didn't understand the fuss about Halloween, why the pace was so deliberate (i.e. slow), and how the kills and surprises all seemed a bit tried and tested. it in no way invalidated his opinion, of course, but i mentioned that Halloween was the template for pretty much every slasher film made subsequently - music, camera angles, editing, suspense. chatting further, he'd already seen all the rushed facsimiles before the original.

doesn't mean he's wrong, or that you don't find it slow, but i like the deliberate pace; for me, it adds to the tension, and mirrors Michael's relentless, deliberate stalking, as does the music. :) plus a hammy Donald Pleasance and a young Jamie Lee Curtis. give it a rewatch, see if your opinion varies at all. it's def. worth at least a rewatch, anyway. :thumbs:

From reading this thread and other forums I've noticed that some people are confused about which year this movie is from.
Is it possible for a moderator to add the year (1978) to the thread title?

Weird... that’s the first 4K ever released for this film to my knowledge.... I believe other two 4K steels were for the remake, but not John Carpenter’s original...
Oh, this is the original?? I wrongly assumed it was the recent one again.

****, guess I'm buying it.
