I will start by saying the word that best describes this film 'Masterpiece'
The film is more than just people getting killed by an unstoppable machine it symbolizes the relationship between Michael a tortured soul and his baby sister.
The film actually has a story which i think some horror films today do not. Halloween is an inspiration to nearly every horror film that's out there post 1978.
It is shocking when you think how this was John Carpenters debut film as a director, the cast was amazing.
I think horror films of today need to revert back to this film and these young directors need to see how a film is done.
This film unlike new horror films will live on for many many more years like the exorcist, psycho and nightmare on elm street.
I salute you John Carpenter
