Michael Myers has haunted me for years in my sleep. Even before I knew who Freddy Kruger was. One film has sustained me this long, even though they clearly have never figured out how to expand on the effect.
Of the actors in this film, I have never noticed any of them in other movies that I have seen and even liked. In this way, it is like Cloverfield. Just as that film did not make any stars, I am pretty sure this one won't either.
