I can't believe it's been 30 years since what I consider the best modern horror film came out. John Carpenter's Halloween set the standard for all the resulting slasher films that came out in the '80's and '90's. Unfortunately I never saw it at a theater, but I bet it was great at a place like the Empire, which was starting to become a little run down during its run there. And seeing it at a drive-in like the 63rd St. which was a little out of the way and surrounded by woods would have been a very creepy experience indeed. The ad is from the 10/25/78 Kansas City Star.
