|HE LOOKS LIKE HE'S KIND OF SORRY.|
|WHICH HE KINDA SUCKS AT.|
|YOU KNOW HOW IT ENDS.|
Years later, I wish that movies still scared me like that, and while Halloween doesn't make me hide my eyes and run for cover anymore, it still catches me up in its terrifying, dark intensity, because it's brilliant.
|PANTS WERE SHAT.|
And of course, this was the break-out role for Jamie Lee Curtis, which makes it even more special.
- It's set in Illinois, but cars have California license plates.
- You can also see mountains in the background of one scene.
- it's also clear that the weather, foliage, and the hours of daylight are how they'd be in California, not Illinois, in October.
- Michael was able to find his way back to Haddonfield from Smith's Grove with no problem. I suppose you could chalk this one off to some sort of evil GPS in his brain maybe?
|YES DONALD, WE'RE NITPICKING.|
|THEN AGAIN, HOW DID HE COME BACK TO LIFE 19 DIFFERENT TIMES OVER THE COURSE OF THE SERIES? PROBABLY MAGIC.|
|THAT TILTING OF THE HEAD THOUGH...|
|MAN, WE HAD A BIG CRUSH ON HER.|
The 7.1 TrueHD lossless audio track is equally as impressive.
- The Night She Came Home!!

|AND JAMIE LEE LOOKS GREAT IN HIGH DEF.|
