It's that time of year when the leaves are turning, if not falling, and the weather is starting to cool, and pumpkins start appearing on people's doorsteps. Yes, Halloween is around the corner, and you can find all your scary movies at the library! Check back here every day for staff recommendations of their favorite horror movies.
Of course, you can't talk about horror movies or Halloween without talking about John Carpenter's original Halloween. Staring Jamie Lee Curtis as the terrorized Laurie Strode, it made the white mask wearing Michael Myers into a movie icon. It's a classic, that made you jump in your seat when you first saw it years ago, and still does the same now. And unlike many movies today, it relies more on the psychological tension than the gore. And don't forget the score music also by John Carpenter that just ramps up the nerve wracking suspense even more.
