Halloween (1978)

I do appreciate "Halloween" for everything it means - and meant - for generations of filmmakers and cinephiles, its true influence on the future frames and perceptions of an entire genre. But I have to be honest with you: revisiting it now, I just felt it to be way too simple and predictable, with a despairing lack of substance and depth in its characters and plot. I feel that it doesn't even deserve to get close to get into my Carpenter's top five. But, anyway, hail to the original scream queen and to those simple piano notes by Carpenter himself that become one of the most recognizable and haunting themes in film history.
