Halloween ★★★★★

This most recent viewing didn't prove particularly revelatory, if only because "Halloween" is a stone cold classic and I've always known it was a stone cold classic. On paper, the premise couldn't be simpler—and isn't so different from the many imitators it would inspire—but the script's 'babysitter murders' are elevated by Carpenter and DP Dean Cundey's elegant staging, the atmospheric synth-score, and the natural charisma of Jamie Lee Curtis.
