Directed by: John Carpenter
Released in: 1978
The first of the big three horror icons. Everything came together in this movie. Shows that you can make a great horror movie, without nudity every thirty seconds and without gallons of blood. (Although that can be good too).
Michael is a silent killer, so the movie doesn't get as annoying as some of the latter "Nightmare On Elm Street's". I would love to see a Michael vs Jason movie some day.
