    "Halloween, the movie has turned into a classic cult thriller SLASH (pardon the pun) horror movie where Michael tries to kill you. There are many, many sequels to plan your viewing pleasure and it is perfect for around the Halloween Holiday. Michael, of course is mentally insane, and pure evil. What is more evil than killing your own sister? "

    "In the mood for a spooky night with popcorn and murder? Halloween is an iconic film and through Amazon.com I can either rent or buy it for a really reasonable price! So I can watch either one dark and scary night with my boo or I can skip all the scary parts until it's daytime! "

    "This is definitely a classic; I've always enjoyed everything about it, right down to that darn ear-candy of a tune. Sure, these days, it doesn't really have the same gore or level of insane brutality, but I still find it fits like a nice warm horror blanket. "

    "Michael perhaps might not be a slasher rated type of guy to some, yes there's Jason and so is freddy BUT Michael was never tagged team in any of his sequels only movie directors but let me say that Rob Zombies Flicks was totally insane! Michael Is Not Only Insane, Tried killing his sister that guy is totally underrated and besides what slasher doesnt follow you to kill its victims? You Dont expect Jason running like he was trying out for the NFL sprinting a 40 yard dash right? Come on people You cant lie when you were in elementary school any of the three would scare you but never moved from the couch and had nightmares all of november!"

    "I'm a wimp when it comes to horror movies, especially when it comes to the "slasher" genre. You couldn't get me to sit and watch a Jason or Freddy movie even if you tried. Yet somehow, the original Halloween by John Carpenter is the one exception. It's utterly captivating and terrifying without relying on excessive gore and sensationalist violence, and it makes for the ideal group movie-watching session around Halloween time. Plus, you gotta love Jamie Lee Curtis' performance. It's simply a great movie."

    "When it comes to the best John Carpenter movie, I'd say it's a toss-up between this and The Thing. However, there's just something so... iconic about Halloween that I just have to put it above The Thing. Maybe it's because I still watch it every, well, Halloween :D"

    "Ah the original Halloween. They can throw all the sequels they want at me but nothing will ever compare to the classic. It's still amazing even to this day!"

    "Okay, so this was the inspiration for the memes and vines that went viral. This really scared me because this movie could really happen in real life. I know there aren't psychos on the loose anymore but crimes happen every day. Be safe guys and watch out for Myers! ;-)"

    "The title says Halloween but there was barely any trick or treaters shown. 1 star for false advertising."

    "This movie is the BEST Halloween (and the only Halloween in my book). Everything is top notch for thrills and as both a scary movie lover and a Jigsaw devotee, you will love this movie. There isn't the violence that are in most SAW movies but the suspense and scary parts are there. Michael Myers is terrifying! I most definitely recommend ANY horror fanatic see this, including Jigsaw fans."

    "It was a okay movie. It could have been scarier I think. "

    "Halloween is a classic horror film that a lot of horror films borrow elements of, even to this day! Which isn't too shabby for an almost 40-year-old film. And it isn't too dated and still quite enjoyable to watch even now. Michael Meyers is still scary to watch even by today's horror film standards."

    "Halloween is definitely one of the most notorious horror movies of all time. Everyone knows this movie even if they haven't seen it. Michael Myers is iconic in horror film culture."
