No doubt those addicted to gore will find this bloodless slasher slow-going (for real-- 60s chillers like PSYCHO, WAIT UNTIL DARK, and the Hammer horror classics have more bloodletting in them than an official slasher like HALLOWEEN), but HALLOWEEN isn't about gross-out gore-- it's all about the atmosphere, which is perfectly autumnal and creepy. From the music to the haunting final scene emphasizing Michael Meyers' true nature, this is an eerie little film, all the more remarkable for how it manages to do so much with such simple elements.
