As Count Floyd would say, “Oooo, that’s scary.”
There’s something about a lone figure in the distance, in the darkness, that prompts chills.
That’s never been more true than when Michael Myers is lurking in “Halloween.”
I’m of the opinion that John Carpenter’s 1978 classic horror film “Halloween” is one of the best fright flicks ever.
A big part of that was Carpenter’s “less is more” approach to showing Michael Myers. The killer was forever slowly fading into sight from a dark doorway or standing motionless across a street or down a sidewalk or in a backyard.
Or, even worse … approaching slowly from that distance.
