Factual error: There's no way that the knife that killed Bob was long enough to go through his body and impale the wall behind him. And a butcher knife cannot "pin" a human body to a wall and just stay put, they aren't strong enough.
9.8/10. A horror masterpiece. My second favorite of Carpenter's movies. He creates a chilling picture of suburban America where evil like this could exist. Myers represents our deepest, darkest fears. He could be a metaphor for us unleashing our innermost demons, anger, anything upon others. Jamie Lee Curtis should always be remembered as one of the best Scream Queens of all time. The creepy breathing of Myers works well, as if he's merely a shell of a man going more on killing instinct than feelings and actual thought. Curtis plays the scared but determined babysitter well, showing that the least likely of us can survive with enough determination. Myers shows the dark side of man well.
Tommy: It's the boogeyman! The boogeyman's outside.
Laurie: Oh, Tommy, stop it! You're scaring Lindsey. There's nobody out there. Now, if you don't stop this I'm going to have to turn the TV off and send you to bed.
Tommy: Nobody believes me.
Lindsey: I believe you, Tommy.
Trivia: When they were shooting the scenes for the start of the film (all the ones seen from Michael's POV) they couldn't get the 6-year old child actor until the last day so the movie's producer, Debra Hill, volunteered to be Michael for any scenes where his hands come into view. This is why the nails on young Michael's hands look so well manicured and varnished.
Question: Why was Michael killing people? There was no mention of his history, or what made him the way he was.
