The autumnal setting isn't just the only way in which Halloween manages to make things seem more than a little chilly as Michael's ever-looming presence makes it hard to truly settle even after multiple viewings and plenty of chances to acclimatise to its jump scares.
Overall, this is one of the best horror films ever, in my view, with an iconic character in Michael Myers, a beautifully simple yet engrossing plot, marvellous suspense and a haunting score.
Halloween is the horror film to watch on Halloween.
