This movie is obviously a CLASSIC, but one would never have known by the EMBARRASSING POOR TURNOUT at the Murfreesboro Tennessee Wynnsong 16 theatre. There was no mention on the marqee outside, not one poster even inside or a stand up for it or anything. This theatre did NOTHING to promote the movie, and that's why there were only about 10 people there. We planned ahead ONLY because we got the email about it. This theatre was DEAD literally. It was a Tuesday night and there could have been hundreds of people there, but there were not. I cannot express how disappointed I am in this theatre. This movie is a cult classic and should have been treated as such. Could have made a TON of money last night, but you dropped the ball! And, I'd like to add that the quality of the movie suffered because I think they actually just played a DVD of the movie. It was not on film. Shameful!! I will drive miles out of my way to go into Nashville for movies from now on!

Still Holds Up

It was a thrill and a mark off the old bucket list to see this on the big screen ( I was only 7 when it first came out). I'm not sure this film gets the accolades it deserves through taking what Psycho started to the next level. I finally saw it on the big screen with an audience of only 9. What a shame. Personally, I think John Carpenter tapped into our basic fears of the Bogeyman and made us feel afraid of the dark and what was behind the closet door. He did it the old fashion way... still camera without quick cuts, an effective score, tension rather than gore, and a relentless menace. There are many that came after it. But VERY few that ever achieved its aptitude.

I was 8 when the movie came out and when I saw it for the first time in theaters. It was such a great experience seeing it again on the big screen! It brought back so many memories, this movie is why I love horror flicks to this day. If you are wondering if you should go, GO! The sound and picture quality was perfect at my theater. The only negative I can say is I did not expect nor like the documentary in the beginning. It should be put at the end for those that want to stay to see it, having it in the beginning where it showed most of the great scary parts sort of diminished the movie's effect. I've waited 35 years for this and just wasn't excited having to watch the documentary first. Re-releasing this iconic movie was the perfect thing to do for it's 35th anniversary!

BEST MOVIE EVER!

I was only 1 yr old when the original Halloween was released. Years later I developed a love for it and the other villains for which Michael Myers paved the road. 10 yrs ago I did not realized the following the movie had actually created and missed the 25th anniversary showing in theaters. So when I saw the 35th anniversary release, I KNEW I had to get tickets to see it. It was everything I knew it would be, and if in 10 yrs they show again, I WILL BE THERE! For anyone who has never seen it, or if you've never seen it in the theater, it is well worth you time and money to go. Rob Zombie did a great job remaking the movie, and has proven what we all know......Michael Myers will NEVER DIE!
