"You can't kill the Bogeyman" - Studying John Carpenter's 'Halloween'

Last week, I screened John Carpenter's brilliant 'Halloween' as the first film to launch us into the study of genre. I will use the blog to post lots of useful resources about this film and developments in the genre. Here is a brilliant documentary where one of my film heroes 'Mark Kermode' interviews Carpenter on Halloween's 21st Anniversary in 1999. Enjoy.
