Quotes

[On writing the script for "Halloween II"]
John Carpenter: I will say that what got me through writing that script was... Budweiser. Six pack of beer a night, sitting in front of the typewriter saying, "What in the hell can I put down?" I had no idea. We're remaking the same film, only not as good.

A great film, deserves a great documentary...
5 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Halloween is a horror classic, with a great cast, perfect villain, and one of the most recognized horror scores in history. This documentary starts from the bare beginning, giving the development of the entire project. Not one detail seems to be left out. It's not too long nor too short. It gives great incite on the film explaining all the little things us fan-boys wanna know, such as wtf is Michael Myers mask from, and tiny things like how certain scenes were set up and constructed. I can't really find anything to nit-pick about this doc. So I'll keep this short saying it's worth watching and I don't think there's a version of the film without this doc. 10/10
