Marcos’s review published on Letterboxd:
John Carpenter’s small little film in 1978 revolutionized the horror genre forever. To this day, nothing scares me more than the THE SHAPE. The figure of evil. Even with the dream-infiltrating and knife glove, with the hockey mask and axe, a puppet and a saw, a ghost face and a knife, a skin mask and a chainsaw, a dead mother and a kitchen knife, no matter how iconic, no matter how horrifying, none of them top the six-year-old boy who butchered his sister to death on that fateful halloween night. Lock your doors, close your windows, and keep an eye out. Because The Shape Stalks.
“The Blackest Eyes. THE DEVIL’S EYES.”
