A bit of Halloween

Since my opera entries are not very popular(am I the only person under 40 who listens to opera?), I thought I'd put here the the opening credits of one my favourite horror movies, maybe the only slasher I genuinly love. I love the now classic theme music which sets us right into the atmosphere of the season. For those (hopefully few) who did not see Halloween, the one and only (there were sequels but they were pale imitations), I strongly recommend you to see it before the end of October. I hope that this post will make you want to watch the movie for yourself anyway. It's a shame that John Carpenter, while a brilliant director, never managed to recreate the momentum that he gets here. He did a couple of very good movies, but none had the brilliant efficiency of Halloween. Oh, and this week, we are going to carve our pumpkin into a Jack O'Lantern. I can't wait.

Now that I have read your opera entries, let me say I enjoyed them. I'm not as familiar with the details as you are so actually appreciate your insight. I have been going to the cinema for the Live at the Met series and thoroughly enjoy that.
