Screenvision Presents John Carpenter's Halloween Reviews
October 29, 2012
Probably the coolest movie experience of my life so far (surpassing the advanced screening of the dark knight rises). The documentary was interesting; it was your standard cheesy documentary, but it was enough to further excite the anxious audience. The documentary, " Halloween Unmasked 2000," would have been a much better addition to the feature for the fans, but nevertheless, it was interesting. The movie itself was obviously heavily restored since the original, which gave it a much more modern feel, but greatly diminished the quality of the cinematography and special effects. When an actor twitched or blinked it was much more obvious, and the blood looked like someone was applying some kind of red jam rather than blood. From what I recall, before these restorations, it was much darker in appearance.
*something interesting to look out for if you haven't seen the movie or never noticed it: Steve forgets to close the van door and leaves it wide open.
