That's the best thing about one of my favourites - Halloween. It's just some huge lumbering maniac with a knife stalking people. It's subtle. No need for extra gore/special effects (not that special effects were used as much in the 70s) to make it scary, it already was. You knew what was killing people, but at the same time you didn't really know too much (especially since Michael Myers' identity and connection to his sister were not fully revealed in the first movie).

But I will add I did not like Blair Witch for the same reason stated a few posts ago... there were only two or three scenes worth watching anyway.. and even then they were nothing special.
