Nothing special about this movie, very dull - all the action is packed into a 20 minute block. The worst thing is it wasn't even scary - very disappointed.

Halloween was not the best in the series, because first of all, there was no blood. Which made the movie really suck, A horror slasher film needs to have blood.

It's actually not that gory or violent and it takes over an hour to get to anything remotely interesting but I can see some guilty pleasure value and why others may enjoy it; not to mention it was revolutionary for the horror genre.

Creepy, but not scary enough to not make you sleep at night. Maybe it is because of the lack of violence which is the complete contrast of what we see today. Yet the way Michael pursues his victims and the chilling background score make the Creepy, but not scary enough to not make you sleep at night.
