Slasher Horror Film Halloween poster


Released - 1978
Genre - Horror, Thriller
Director - John Carpenter
Starring - Donald Pleasance, Jamie Lee Curtis

John Carpenter's Halloween was first released in 1978 and can be credited with sparking the run of "slasher" films, which were to prove very popular throughout the eighties. Michael Myers was the original masked killer, silent, icy and intent on killing everyone. John Carpenter wrote and directed the film. It had a budget of $300,000 and took just 21 days to shoot. The result is one of the greatest horror films of all time. This film is really like a blueprint for all the slasher films that were to come and there is still a huge amount of derivative stuff being churned out which has borrowed heavily from Halloween.
