John Carpenter's HALLOWEEN turns 35 today!

35 years ago today, the producers of Halloween opened their little movie on a few screens in Kansas City.  Further proof that folks in Kansas City are smarter than they look--without a huge advertising campaign, the film generated word of mouth buzz that started the process of building the film's massive audience.  It's the sort of thing that would never happen today.

I wrote about the first time I saw Halloween in 1981 a few years ago.  Here's that post.
