  • Cinema Classics: Halloween (1978) | SquabbleBox.co.uk - Entertainment Under Attack
    s suggestion to change the title and set it on All Hallow s Eve completely transforming the film s potential The writers retooled the screenplay with Hill concentrating on the dialogue between the girls and Carpenter focusing on the efforts of Dr Sam Loomis Donald Pleasence Michael s psychiatrist and the film s unlikely hero Pleasence gave Halloween a recognisable name to put on the poster after attempts to cast Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing fell through He was an inspired choice for Loomis a weird old man who has made it his personal mission to kill Myers His principal function is to provide the exposition and back story but the veteran actor makes the role a vital component to the movie and infuses it with some respectability As the future Scream Queen and Final Girl Curtis gives the audience an emotional connection to the events She s still the archetypal slasher movie heroine good natured resourceful and virginal The latter is perhaps the most important since every genre effort since has played into the notion that you must to be pure to survive Laurie Strode earns her survival through guts and determination however turning the tables on her would be attacker several times I don t think Carpenter was making a comment on amoral youth but the film nevertheless introduced this convention The rest of the cast is a mixed bag save for Nick Castle as Myers He manages to make walking menacing and Michael does a lot of walking very slowly It s a wonder he ever catches up to his prey But it s a performance filled with great little touches such as the famous moment when he admires his handiwork tilting his head like a curious puppy The childish nature of the gesture still chills me to the bone Although a relative novice at the time Carpenter always understood the value of slow burn suspense and Halloween is in no rush to off its protagonists The familiarity of the slasher rulebook makes each turn of the plot perfunctory to modern viewers but you d be hard pressed to pick a wasted moment Mood is the key word here and the director never lost his grip Haddonfield as a setting certainly helps a recognisable Every Town that doesn t root the film in any specific time or place The universe of Halloween is plausible in its banality and that makes it disturbing You could almost say the same about the killings There is no gore to be found There s some blood glimpsed on a knife and a few grisly images but nothing distasteful The sheer force of the material allows you to fill in the blanks Dean Cundey s cinematography is revelatory and a character in its own right It must be difficult to make daytime sequences frightening but he pulls it off with a muted colour palette that perfectly suits the autumnal aspect of the film Like Michael the camera almost stalks the protagonists gliding
