Dir. John Carpenter. US, 1978, 91 mins. With Donald Pleasence, Jamie Lee Curtis, PJ Soles. Carpenter knew how to use the super-wide CinemaScope frame better than any other horror director, and his proto slasher film, about a masked maniac with a vendetta, stalking babysitters in suburban Illinois, remains the most elegantly shot and composed film of its kind. This brilliantly paced movie of mounting anxiety and dread perfectly evokes an autumnal atmosphere and features a naturalistic, star-making performance by Jamie Lee Curtis.
