I thoroughly believe film history will look back on Carpenter as one of the unsung masters of the the second half of the twentieth century. Here we have his first critically acclaimed work, a work of a director who is already in control of several key elements (directing, score, editing) that will be the hallmark of a remarkable career.

Memorable scenes include the "I wanted vanilla twist" scene that is deservedly one of the greatest shocks in all of film, and an ending spoiler

Also, a word must be said for Carpenter's score, which is just as memorable as the iconic "Halloween" score that would be upcoming.

Overall, if you have loved better known Carpenter flicks, watch this early gem and watch a master at work.

Does not live up to the great films that preceded it, mostly thanks to the lack of a compelling villain. Eastwood and Daly's chemistry carries this one, and I'm glad they didn't slouch and give this one a happy ending.

It has a decent twist, but the execution of this film turns what probably would have been a good to great horror film into a slog. Jennifer Lawrence is never a bad thing though, and she does pretty well with what she is given(which isn't much).

Not talked about a lot anymore, this is an entertaining documentary about the Scripps National Spelling Bee, but also about the human condition. Worth watching with the whole family.

Bava strays away from typical horror and instead takes a more realistic approach here, using the premise of a heist gone wrong to show how evil humans are. The three villains here are bad, with absolutely zero redeeming factors. 75% of this movie takes place in a car, on a hot day with no air conditioning, which lends itself to a feeling of extreme claustrophobia.

The ending is classic Bava, and this movie is underrated.

Influential for the groundwork it would lay for the slashers that were just around the corner. This movie should be pure joy for horror film junkies. One kill in particular where a head is busted open just looks wonderful. And the ending is one of the great WTF moments in horror film history.

A little confusing, but the performances are all spectacular here.

The cinematography is of course beautiful, and the plot isn't as awful as some reviewers said, but there is still something missing here that I can't quite put my finger on.

Average Jason film. Some great moments, the fistfight with Julian is some of the best work of the series. And the idea of Jason in Times Square just works. The climax in the sewer is also very effective.

Tom Cruise just has that "it". He is compulsively watchable, and elevates serviceable films like this into great entertainment. Also, the ensemble does well, and I was surprised to see Werner Herzog, in a delightfully enigmatic and chilling performance. Worth a watch.

Hilarious, brilliantly parodies the noir-era, but in a friendly way. "Cleaning Woman!" will have you howling with laughter. And Marlowe may be the best thing about this picture. Everyone needs to see this.

A solid addition to the series. The premise of having a telekinetic girl go against Jason seems desperate, but it really works in the film's climax. Judging by comments from the director, the film had to be heavily censored and the Paramount execs objected to some of his story ideas. While this is an above average movie for the series, I believe it could have been even better.

Anyone who is a fan of horror needs to watch this one as an early example of the parody of horror movies. There were so many laughs in this film, it is practically a comedy. Easily the best entry in the series since Part II.

About as awful as part 3, but thankfully with some moments of "This is so terrible yet hilarious." Particularly love Reggie's cousin, who is a Michael Jackson look-a-like, and the seemingly endless number of fakeouts at the end, leaving you not quite sure what to believe. This is easily the worst of the series up to this point.

Middle of the line slasher. Crispin Glover is here, and he somehow throws in a great performance in a movie filled with nothing but nudity and stupidity by most. I like the ending, Corey Feldman is utterly creepy.

Allen's Vertigo. His best, and most autobiographical. The last scene with Tracey and Isak is the most mature Allen has ever been.

If this movie had been made ten years ago, MacGregor would still be running.

Maybe it's because I live in a place that is quite a bit like the town in this film that it didn't affect me as much. I thought Jennifer Lawrence was tremendous, but movie had some serious pacing issues.

Better then the original in my opinion. Some interesting shots, especially like the pacing of the opening kill.

The Grey Havens scene is one of the most emotional I've ever seen put on film. Pitch perfect film

Drags at parts, but still hilarious.
