A new Halloween movie is coming out this year – a direct sequel to the 1978 original that ignores all the other movies, adding yet another alternate timeline to that confusing mess of a franchise. Still, it’s good to see Jamie Lee Curtis and ol’ William Shatner-face reunite once more 40 years later. In their honour, Itcher takes a look at a few Great Movies Turning 40.
A quintessential horror film that defined and popularised the slasher killer genre in the 1980s, this John Carpenter classic fully stands the test of time. Michael Myers, a murderous psychopath who killed his older sister as a child, breaks out of the sanitarium he was committed to and returns to his home town of Haddonfield on Halloween night – and he really, really doesn’t like teenage babysitters.

A trailblazer for the myriad of big budget superhero movies that have followed in the next 40 years, the original Superman is a stone-cold classic. Christopher Reeves’ iconic take of the Man of Tomorrow remains one of the most definitive and treasured portrayals of the character – and even fans of the much darker DC movies of late will find this movie’s optimism, hope and humour hard to resist.

One of the all time greatest musicals, Grease is the story of the young love between good girl Sandy and greaser Danny. A throwback to 1950s teen-age musicals, this is one of the two movies that made John Travolta a superstar – before, well, he starred in sequels to both that weren’t that great.
