    PDF/EPUB Murray J.D. Leeder µ µ Halloween ePUB µ halloween kindle, Halloween PDF/EPUBProbably only of interest to uber fans of the film this book was a little bit academic than I expected I mostly wanted to check this out for new facts and background information on the making of the film and some Carpenter's own thoughts and ideas that drove characters and plot points Some chapters really made me consider the film in new ways while some of the subtext and critiues presented seemed a bit of a stretch for me Still I loved a deeper dive into one of my all time favorite horror films and it challenged me to view t

    PDF/EPUB Murray J.D. Leeder µ µ Halloween ePUB µ halloween kindle, Halloween PDF/EPUBMurray Leeder provides a great reading of Johns Carpenter's 1978 horror classic This study includes information about the making of the movie an explanation of the themes and interviews with Carpenter as well Of particular interest is the discussion of Michael Meyers as multiple evil forcesbeings including a murderous psychopath a ghost an urban legend the boogeyman and a cosmic monster The cosmic monster reading brings into play themes presented by H P Lovecraft and there is a fantastic section that basically presents the argument that Michael Meyers is a re imagining of one of Lovecraft's cosmic monsters Additionally there is discussion of what it means to be a child adolescent and an adult within the universe of the movie

Leeder µ µ Halloween ePUB µ halloween kindle, Halloween PDF/EPUBI was a little disappointed in the direction that Leeder went in this one Not that his insights were shallow or uninteresting but he spent waaay too much time attempting to unpack the idea of Michael Meyers is he pure evil is he self consciously in a a horror movie is he a return to the id of Halloween itself In a short book as this a chapter dealing with the idea of Loomis as psychiatry is a wasted chapter especially when Loomis can be unpacked in so many interesting ways in my opinion Yes we get it Lori is the final girl maybe the first even but I disagree with this idea Leeder asserts that she straddles the adultchild threshold and therefore survives the night Over all the book attempted to sink into the subtext of a movie that is much a horror movie than a philosophical comment of horror

    PDF/EPUB Murray J.D. Leeder µ µ Halloween ePUB µ halloween kindle, Halloween PDF/EPUBTurns out there's a whole series of these books analyzing specific horror movies Unfortunately all of them aren't available in ebook form but this was one of them It was really enjoyable it made me think about the movie in a lot of new ways with different chapters considering things like whether or not the movie punishes sex how Dr Loomis fits into the pantheon of movie psychiatrists how it's about the holiday itself and If you like reading about horror movies this is the series for you For me because I do
