For most movie lovers, there is that one special movie that got you hooked on cinema. That magical moment when you realised just how powerful movies can be, and that you would maintain an interest for the rest of your life.
The one that got me hooked was John Carpenters 'Halloween'. I was way too young when I sneaked out of my bedroom in the middle of the night to watch this movie that my parents wouldn't let me see. In the ensuing hour and a half I realised the sheer emotional impact that movies can have. I am much older now (humph), but still I freak out a little at the sight of the Michael Myers mask (or even a very pale William Shatner). A movie had left its first permanent impression on me and I have never looked back.
What was your movie?
