SCARY CINEMA SERIES at Inwood Art Works Gallery: “Halloween”

Halloween splashed across movie screens in 1978 and rocketed to instant classic. Often imitated but never equaled, Halloween defined a generation of horror cinema.  Director John Carpenter’s second major film is an exercise in tension instead of gore, in which a masked killer known only as The Shape (he is never referred to anywhere in the film as Michael Myers) escapes from an asylum and returns to his home of Haddonfield, Illinois to paint the town red. Jamie Lee Curtis makes her big screen debut as the ill-fated high school student who becomes the apple of his eye.

A master class in low budget filmmaking, the film was shot in 20 days for a budget of $300,000 and scored by Carpenter himself. Halloween rocketed to a then record-breaking $43 million dollar box office and spawned countless sequels and copycats, none of which captured the edge of your seat tension of the original. The film continues to terrify audiences nearly 40 years later and is a must-see for Halloween filmgoers.

Halloween will be introduced by John Foster. Born in Sleepy Hollow, NY, John has been afraid of the dark for as long as he can remember. A writer of thrillers and dark fiction, you can find out more about his work at www.johnfosterfiction.com.
