John Carpenter's "Halloween" is rightly hailed as a horror classic, even though I've always thought it was a bit overrated. The soundtrack gets incredibly repetitive and boring. It's basically the same two or three themes played over and over again, maybe with slight variations, and they're not very varied. The main theme is of course iconic and pretty good but it gets tiresome hearing it over and over again. This is of course music that should experienced with the movie. It works better that way.
