Director: John Carpenter
Actors: Donald Pleasence, Jamie Lee Curtis, Tony Moran, Nancy Kyes, P.J. Soles, Charles Cyphers, Kyle Richards, Brian Andrews, John Michael Graham, Nancy Stephens, Arthur Malet, Robert Phalen, Will Sandin and Sandy Johnson
Year: 1978
Genre: Horror and Thriller
Conclusion: 5/5
This was Jamie Lee Curtis’ first feature film. A film that was made at a really low budget. It is a very well made film. The musical score was very well balanced. John Carpenter also wrote the score (which took him 3 days) for this film as well as directing it. This is a film that you can watch in the 21st century and still enjoy. This is a film that stayed with me days after watching. This is on the late Barry Norman’s list of 100 Greatest Films of all time that he produced in the Radio Times at the start of 2012.
