How is the Halloween 1978 pumpkin unique?
During the opening credits, the camera slowly zooms in on a carved jack-o’-lantern. Though it looks like something just about any kid or talentless adult could create, as it gets closer, you will see the classic triangle nose has a slit coming down the side.
Here’s a shocker about a John Carpenter film: the slash was intentional! I know right?!
Anyway, the slash combined with the triangle of the nose and the left eye of the pumpkin resemble Michael Myer’s silhouette wielding a knife. This surely comes as a shocking revelation 45 years later, but that’s what I do here at Movie Time Dad. I provide hard hitting current movie knowledge to your very own device.
