Man... I watch Halloween on AMC Friday night and they played it on a big screen at the convention yesterday exactly 1:30mins after I got there! So it was perfect timing! And I must say I have seen this movie at least 50 times and EACH time I am totally into it. I have no idea how this movie was made so perfectly but man... its like destiny.
The new dvd is just a re-issue of the 1999 Restored Edition, which I already own, so there is no sense in my buying it again. I also own the 25th Anniversary Divimax Edition, so I am good on Halloween.

I think it went wrong when horror movies started getting bigger budgets. Back when films like Halloween and Friday the 13th were made the people involved had to be creative due to not having a lot of money to work with. These days almost all horror movies get tons of money to work with and they spend it all on effects. Story is secondary if not forgotten completely.

A very good point and so very true. I don't really care for a movie that is just all blood and guts. I want there to be a story in there somewhere. You would think that the movie people would sit back and take a look and see that the older movies are still being watched and loved 30 years later. I don't see a movie like The Devil's Rejects or House of a 1000 Corpses still being watched and loved like the Halloween or Friday the 13th movies are today in 30 years. I know for me seeing those movies once was enough.
