    It was more fun as kid, dressing up in costumes and going door to door, trick or treating, now I pretty stay at home, watch horror films, and scarf down a bag of bit size of candy.

    I Love this movie. I don't like the remakes its stupid. I know the guys like it because girls are flashing there boobs and its about sex but to be honest I like orginal. Even with bad acting Jaime Lee Curtis could never be replaced!

    This holiday had to be created by a dentist. Why else would you send kids out in the cold and rain to collect a pillow case full of sugary junk! Ok, I've cherry picked a mini-snickers bar or two...

    A pretty good holiday for the kids. I know how fun it is for them to dress up and go out trick or treating. I remember How much I loved it as a child. this will be the last one for trick or treats for our family{sniff} since our kids are bigger. We like to carve pumkins, and watch It's the Great Pumkin Charlie Brown, a Halloween tradition for our family. It was fun in grammar school when the kids got to have parties. and have a parade.   UPDATE: Halloween is not so big for us anymore. my kids are way past the trick or treating and we stopped passing out candy years ago {for different reasons} I still buy the candy we just use it for our own family. Have fun tonight for those who still celebrate this holiday. UPDATE: another Halloween. ours was cold and dreary. glad my kids are past that age. Hope anyone who did celebrate this holiday had a fun one. oddly we saw few kids walk down our block. with this economy, the fear of "swine flu" and newscasters telling parents to be aware of "sex p...

    Best. Holiday. Ever! Fun when I was a kid, still Fun as an Irresponsible adult. Halloween season Begins October 1st with the Ceremonial Nightly Watching of Horror movies. The decorations also come up around that time, The scarier the better. And of course the Costumes. You can not just go to the store and buy Some lame-ass costume the Day before. No, my friend. You need to plan in advance what you are going to be and begin Making it yourself as soon as Possible so that it will be Ready on time. Booze is another important Staple of this Holiday. Ideally, you want to begin stockpiling Beer, Whiskey and Clear liquors around The first of the month. This helps ensure that you have an ample supply by the 31st. If you are a Heavy drinker, it may behoove you to begin Stockpiling booze in September or August. Once you have a fully Stocked bar, you are Halfway there. You also want to make sure that your Strobe lights, silly String, and blacklights are functional and well Stocked. Lastly, the ... Read more

    While being careful not to condemn others for celebrating Halloween in the way they prefer, I must say that that type of celebration is not for me. I have been there and done that. I celebrate in a much different way, now. I like to recognize it as a day of harvest. I love the colors that come out this time of year, like for instance, what's on my door right now is a little wreath with a scarecrow in the middle of it that hangs on the outside of the door. Also, I haven't gotten around to doing it this year, and probably won't because of time issues, but I like to put out uncarved pumpkins, gourds, and cornstalks, and they all have a harvest flavor.

    Halloween is OK, but honestly once you get past the trick-or-treating age, it loses ground to the other holidays rather quickly. When I was 8 I would have given Halloween 5 stars.

    Although Halloween has never really been a big deal in the UK it was here that it was likely to have originated. One of the traditions the description states is "Trick or Treating" - this is an American invention and something that was not done in the UK until the original airing of ET made tradition known over here. I think it's pretty frowned upon in some areas, but I do know quite a lot of areas in Leicester do seem to actively take part in Trick-or-treating now. I wouldn't really call this day a holiday though as we still have to work on Halloween, it's more of a festivity. Personally I prefer the Day of the Dead (Dias de los Meurtos) because it is a time to remember the dead and to honour them rather than Halloween which is more specifically aimed at scaring off evil spirits that could damage the crops before they are harvested. It's genre in popular culture though is something I've had mixed reactions to - there are some particularly good horror movies out their involving all ... Read more

    Halloween is my favorite holiday. It seems to encompass the entire month of October, which is probably the greatest month weather-wise throughout the States. Haunted houses, hay rides, pumpkin carvings all go on throughout the entire month, and the weekend of Halloween and sometimes the weekend preceeding are filled with parties. Bars and parties are packed with people who are having a better time than 99% of all other "regular" days out. When I was a kid I loved tricker treating and it's still awfully cute to see the little trick or treaters.

    What can i say? this is one of the most terrifying movies ever made, if not thee scariest of all time. Michael Myer's has got to be the most chilling character ever to appear in a horror film, Leatherface perhaps coming a close second. He is the epitome of coldness and clinical detachment, like Ted Bundy (with a mask). This is one horror film you must see!

    A decent classic horror series.Michael Myers is more of a creepy type of killer rather than scary.The series is really good for those moments where they keep you in suspense and silence,then suddenly throw a corpse or two in your face for shock factor.

    A good, suspenceful movie that spawned one of the most popular and long lived slasher series ever. When he was only six years old, Micheal Myers killed his sister with a large butcher knife. He spent the next fifteen years in a mental institution, where his therapist spent eight years trying to cure him before realiseing that he was "pure evil" and spent the next seven years making sure that he stayed locked away for life. But on October 31st 1978, Micheal Myers escaped, hellbent on a murder spree, climaxing in the one-by-one murders of Lorrie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) and her friends. Althought it is not very violent (and not bloody at all) and the death scenes are quite tame by todays standards, Halloween is still a scary movie (made even creepier by the chilling musical score) and one of the first in the slasher genre. Deffinatly worth a watch, the start of a great series.

    I can still remember the frightened whispers, and collective intake of breath in the theater when I first saw this masterpiece. This happened during several of the scenes when Michael Meyers was in pursuit of his sister with a butcher knife. The mounting, relentless suspense in this horror movie has rarely been matched, and Carpenter's music was as eerie, and malevolent as that in another favorite of mine ( THE EXORCIST ). HALLOWEEN proved that you don't need buckets of blood, and fake gore to scare the crap out of people- just great camera work, and excellent direction. Horror movies don't get better than this, and the added scenes in the extended version make it even better. A must for any horror fan.

    UPDATED OBAMA ADMINISTRATION HALLOWEEN:By genghisthehunORIGINAL COMMENT:  November 1 is All Saints Day in the Christian Church and this holiday occurs at the same time as some pagans had a festival. Halloween is a contrati0n of the Eve of Hallows (Saints.) Most of the belief in witches, goblins and others comes from paganism and these creatures were supposedly afoot the night before All Saints Day. Many of the traditions of Halloween come down from various sources and have persisted all these centuries.

    One of the first horror films where the villian seemingly never quite died and had supernatural recuperative powers. It may have been JLC's first big part in the movies. Donald Pleasence always delivers the goods. Great soundtrack too. As is usually the case, the first film is the best.

    Right up there with the rest of the slice-em dice-em movies of the time. What seperates it though is that Jamie Lee Curtis went on to be a pretty good actress.

    In San Francisco, Halloween is one of the best days of the year. There's something dark and pagan about it - it allows you to be somebody else for a day, and let those inhibitions go just a little bit more. I hope I never get too old to enjoy Halloween.

    This is the first horror movie i ever saw and it scared the crap out of me. I still love watching this, even though it doesn't scare me anymore, it still leaves chills.
