Hamilton College F.I.L.M. Series: John Carpenter’s Halloween (1978)

Sunday, Oct. 31, at 2 p.m.
Hamilton College –
Bradford Auditorium, Kirner-Johnson Building


The two decades following the 1960 release of Hitchcock’s Psycho saw a range of new forms of horror film, from low-budget, independent productions like Night of the Living Dead (1968) to big budget successes like The Exorcist (1973). John Carpenter’s Halloween is among the most memorable horror films of that era, not only because of its powerful suspense and memorable score, but because of its elegant, pumpkin-colored look.

In 2006, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”

The F.I.L.M. Series welcomes members of the public who are fully vaccinated for COVID-19. All visitors must wear masks. In accordance with Hamilton College’s policy, unvaccinated visitors, including children, are not permitted at this time. Thank you for your consideration.
