Halloween II perfectly captured that particular feeling of a late Halloween night, long after trick-or-treating has ended, when you can sense that Halloween is coming to a close. It's a neat couple of hours, before it's officially November 1st. Teens walking to parties (or back home from parties), porch lights getting turned off, pumpkins burning down on tiny wicks, and that cold dampness making it impossible to get warm. And the silence.
You can feel that something wonderful just walked across your path, and moved off into the trees. And you were the only one who saw it.
