Halloween, Michael Myers

review by
Mike Haberfelner

Haddonfield, Illinois, Halloween night: Ben (Louis B. Hauff) and Lisa (Zolie Horvath) have had a fall-out earlier, but he really has the hots for her, so he tracks her down to Mike's (Timmion Lichtenberg) Halloween party. He almost gets to her, but he's young and thus hormone-driven enough to let himself be distracted by the next nice girl he sees - which is too bad as in the meantime Lisa's killed by Michael Myers (Mark Murtha), a loonie escaped from a nearby asylum. And one by one he continues killing party guests in the most gruesome of ways while nobody else is looking. And when the surviving guests notice they're actually in danger, it's already much too late ...


Ok, this is not John Carpenter you're watching here, which I don't think anybody was actually expecting. But that out of the way, for a fanfilm, The '78 Slasher really holds its own, telling a story just enough removed from Carpenter's seminal Halloween to stand on its own while at the same time really "getting" the spirit of the original, which means putting suspense first, and atmosphere over cheap thrills, while placing jump scares and violence sparingly but in all the right places, and actually presenting the audience with a story that goes beyond the killings.

So yeah, it still isn't Halloween, but at the same time for fans of the original this should prove a fun ride for sure.
