This is a documentary on the making of the 1978 horror classic "Halloween". It's primarily Debra Hill and John Carpenter discussing it. There are also the producers, the cinematographer and two of the actresses in it (Jamie Lee Curtis and P.J. Soles) talking. If you're a Halloween fan (like me) you'll find nothing new here. All of this has been discussed before. Even worse this is LOADED with clips from the movie--far too much. Again and again and AGAIN they show long clips from the movie when short ones would have worked as well. Sometimes the clips are used to illustrate a point but more often than not they seemed to be thrown in at random. It brings this to a screeching halt and frankly gets boring and annoying. The only good parts are photos from the set and Carpenter directing Donald Pleasance. It's too bad. "Halloween" is a true classic and deserves much better than this.
