In the spirit of this weekend’s Halloween holiday, UNM-Los Alamos’s Monster Movie Wednesday will feature “Halloween” (1978, rated R, 92 minutes) at 6 p.m. Wednesday in the UNM-LA Lecture Hall in Bldg. 2. The movie is free and open to the public.
Though considered by many to be the father of the modern slasher film, director John Carpenter’s independent film doesn’t forget to pay homage to the earlier thriller “Psycho.”
The star, Jamie Lee Curtis, is the daughter of “Psycho” star Janet Leigh and the character name of “Sam Loomis” is re-used. Carpenter succeeds in creating a suspenseful film with very little gore or graphic violence.
As producer Deborah Hill explains, “We didn’t want it to be gory. We wanted it to be like a jack-in-the box.”
Monster Movie Wednesdays will continue with “Nightmare on Elm Street” on Nov. 3 and runs through Dec. 8. See the full movie schedule at www.la.unm.edu.
