Total Times Watched – A disturbing amount
The score in this movie is so damn good that even people who don’t know the movie will know the music. Totally. This movie is nearly flawless, although I will admit it has some weird dialogue and the pacing isn’t great throughout. This is the granddaddy of the slasher genre, though. I don’t care what people say about Black Christmas or any of the others, this movie is the one. The acting is really good and the movie is creepy throughout. The cops make some really questionable moves. Loomis cracks me up with how amped up he gets. A real 0-60 in 1 second kinda guy.
This movie is going to seem tropey if you watch it with modern eyes, but this is what kicked off all of those tropes! It’s creepy and doesn’t really have any gore or anything. It’s just a classic creeper slasher.
