Ryan Turek, Managing Editor of Shock Till You Drop posted this cool piece of "reaction audio" which was apparently captured from a live audience watching John Carpenter's Halloween way back in 1978.
Knowing how much everyone on HorrorBid loves Michael Myers and Halloween we decided to include this piece of vintage awesomeness here on our te.Check it out below and lets us know your thoughts - vintage or recent?

That sent tingles up my spine..it makes watching movies with audiences so much more fun when they have those sort of reactions!

Amazing. That video is absolutely priceless. Vintage or recent - it doesn't matter, it sums up what we not only love about Halloween, but what we love about horror!

I dont see any movie now or in the near future that will ever have that same effect on a generation.
With exception to the exorcist, Halloween was a first of its kind.

A theatre in my home town ran a clasc horror series at the end of this summer (Psycho, American Werewolf in London, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Halloween, and some others...). Unfortunately i was busy on all the nights--BUT! I made arrangements and ditched plans just so i could experience my favorite horror movie of all time on the big screen. The way it was meant to be shown.
It was me, my 14 year old ster and her friend and then maybe seven strangers in the auditorium. We all connected. We all shared a love for the genre and the movie and when the show ended, i was not the only one clapping. The best part of the experience was perhaps the fact that my younger ster and her decidedly more squeamish friend screamed multiple times and were freaking out almost the entire film. I knew i had to take her with me because she had once watched my Rob Zombie Halloween DVD (without asking, though that was hardly the problem, as i am more than willing to foster her love for horror movies)----WITHOUT HAVING FIRST SEEN THE ORIGINAL. Countless times i berated her, but when this opportunity arose, i would not let it pass me by.
Lo, and behold, she ended up liking the original a lot more. There was a lot of pride in my heart that night.

I love one person's response, "I don't believe it!" Chilling scene to begin with, this one goes down in the books with Easy Rider and Bonnie and Clyde as both tragic yet cinematically (yes, I created a word) heroic endings.
Though Myers isn't a hero per se, he represents the necessary "rebel," the alternative to the smiling American Dream.
I'm glad he got up.
I'm glad Loomis was scared shitless.
Thanks for posting this...
