Good Documentary.
12 September 2013 | by AaronCapenBannerSee all my reviews

This documentary exhaustively examines the "Halloween" franchise, with interviews with creators John Carpenter & Debra Hill, along with actors Jamie Lee Curtis, Charles Cyphers, P.J. Soles, Tom Atkins, Danielle Harris, Ellie Cornell, and archival footage with the late(and much missed) Donald Pleasance, among many other actors, directors, and writers involved. Takes a look at how and why the first film was made, following its production and release, where Carpenter thought it had failed, only to discover to his surprise that it was a big critical and commercial success. Also goes into the formation of the many sequels, the ups and downs of their production, and then the possible future of the franchise.

Made before the two(needless) remakes and tragic death of owner Moustapha Akkad, this film was quite an interesting look at the franchise, now 35 years, rather than 25!
