Check out the audience reaction to John Carpenter’s Halloween, recorded in a theatre in the late 1970’s





Regularly voted the greatest horror of all time, and championed and loved by our very own Ross Hughes, John Carpenter’s Halloween is a classic in every sense of the word. Horror has vastly moved on now, but even today director’s are taking their influences from one of the best horror films ever made. Carpenters Halloween is iconic, and horror today simply would not exist as it is had Halloween never been made.

What it would be to go back in time when something like Halloween had never really been made before, and to sit in a cinema and experience pure and ultimate terror in a way never before felt. Well, thanks to Ryan Turek, the Managing Editor of Shock Till You Drop, you can now get a small taste of how it felt to be in a cinema surrounded by fans watching Halloween for the first time. Turek recently posted the below video, and I am sure you’ll agree it’s incredibly nostalgic and very fun to hear how people screamed and even shouted “one more!!” as Dr Loomis shoots Michael Myers.

Be warned though, if you have never seen Halloween (if this is the case then what are you doing here?) the clip does show the ending of the film.

Apparently a recording was found from a movie theatre in America around about the time the film was released, and the recording has been synced with a digital version of the film to make it look better, but don’t let me carry on like there’s no tomorrow! Watch it for yourself!

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
