A Lonely Heart Like Pagliacci

I revisited this picture for  the first time since the vhs era…I remember when I was a kid the neutered t.v. version played almost yearly like It’s A Wonderful Life. It still  holds up and skunks all further sequels. Picking up exactly where the original left off, featuring much  of the original cast, (Jamie Lee Curtis, Donald Pleasence, Charles Cyphers),  written by the creators (John Carpenter and Debra Hill), it feels like an epic coda to the story. It set the template for sequels the way the original did for slasher movies. There’s even more humor in this one one as well. And ever since, I’ve never been able to separate “Mr. Sandman” from the Halloween theme…
