HAPPY HALLOWEEN!  John Carpenter’s Halloween (1978)

The two decades following the release of Hitchcock’s Psycho (1960) saw a range of new forms of horror film, from low-budget, independent productions like Night of the Living Dead (1968) to big budget successes like The Exorcist (1973). John Carpenter’s Halloween is among the most memorable horror films of that era, not only because of its powerful suspense and memorable score, but because of its elegant, pumpkin-colored look. It stars Jamie Lee Curtis—partly a nod to Psycho, since Curtis is the daughter of Janet Leigh, who played Marion in Psycho. Made for $300,000, Halloween grossed $70,000,000 on its release. In 2006, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”

If you’ve seen Halloween, it was probably on your family TV screen. Check it out in Bradford Auditorium, on the big screen with good sound, as it was meant to be experienced.

To find KJ125 (Bradford Auditorium) when coming from off-campus up College Hill Road,  follow the F.I.L.M. signs past the crosswalk, then turn left.

Parking is available on the right, just past the Kennedy Center for Studio Arts.
