Ten Perfect Pumpkins in Movies

Oct 30, 2015 Comments
John Carpenter's Halloween

We started with an iconic Halloween film featuring pumpkins and we’ll end with arguably the most iconic Halloween film that features arguably the most iconic use of a pumpkin in a film ever. John Carpenter’s 1978 classic, Halloween, not only kick-started an entire sub-genre but it also gave us that amazing first glimpse of a glowing jack-o-lantern right alongside the title treatment. It’s simple use is not only representative of the Halloween season, but of the pumpkin itself as an ever-present symbol of the holiday. It’s completely understated, but it is the perfect way to start a film that has become the perfect way to get into the spooky Halloween mood. And if that wasn’t enough, the pumpkin became a main element of the poster art as well. What a great match. Happy Halloween!
