11) Halloween: Resurrection (2002)

The eighth entry in the slasher series finds a  Michael Myers stalking a group of fame-seeking college students who’ve agreed to spend a night in his house. On the surface  it stars Tyra Banks, Busta Rhymes, and a relatable reality show premise. At the time of release was on par with entertainment at the time. Director Rick Rosenthal was on to something there but… it no way does it hold up over time at all. Not to mention it was a complete was of came for Jamie Lee Curtis. David Gordon Green does revisit this concept in his version.  Our current version of “reality reporters” , Podcasters play a roll as the catalsyt for Myers return. Green makes quick work of dispatching of them, rather then letting ruin the movie…

10) Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers (1995)img_0678

Paul Rudd plays skittish survivor  Tommy Doyle. This installment revisits the John Carpenters original concept of The Shape being a vessel for evil and there is a larger force at work. However, the movie spirals for do a dark hole or witches and runes. Unfortunately, endless reshoots and disastrous re-edits rendered the finished film a confusing disappointment. I myself am an owner of  Producers Cut was released a few years ago and doesn’t do anything help this film at all.

 

9)Rob Zombie’s Halloween (2007)

img_0682

Rob Zombie spends a large amount of time making Micheal in his on way. Perhaps even over explaining his childhood way too much! When we actually get to the killing, it was wonderfully exciting but wasn’t enough to save this 2 hour installment. Zombie’s version is far more violent and gore fest kill, may have been more than what fans for looking for! The installment at best is a conversation piece and should be watched if you never have seen it.

 

 

 

8) Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers (1989)

It’s isn’t easy trying to figure out where this film goes wrong. Even the return of fan favorite Jamie Lloyd.  Could it be the most annoying character in the entire series Tina , was to much for us to foucs? Wait no, it’s defiantly the awesome sound effects we hear wheimg_0677never two bumbling cops arrive on screen right? So many options to choose from it no wonder this film was a mess. The film fails at most attempts to scare us. In hind sight, it really didn’t leave us much room to follow this storyline any further. Hence The Curse of Micheal Meyers.

 

 

 

 

7) Rob Zombie’s Halloween II (2009)

Concluding his helm behind the camera. Zombie’s final installment in the franchise img_0681really shows that he started to understand the character he created.  It does a far better job of pace and explaining the world Micheal is in. The film even does a couple of call backs to earlier installments. It’s best that Zombie’s run ended here on a strong note. The ending of this was truly great.

 

 

 

6) Halloween H20: Twenty Years Later (1998)

img_0679Two decades after the release of Carpenter’s 1978 classic, Jamie Lee Curtis  reprised her iconic role as Laurie Strode in this 20 year anniversary chapter. Laurie is working as the headmistress at a private boarding school whose students include her son Josh Hartnett. That’s right a boy not a girl, fans were bummed to learn Danielle Harris character Jamie Lloyd was not being used again. Ignoring the 4,5 and 6 films, maybe there was just no way to salvage that timeline.    Of course, Michael decides to pay a visit on his favorite holiday. Director Steve Miner, executes a solid entry.

 

 

5) Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (1988)

Halloween III failed to impress anyone, the writers were forced to bring Meyers back.  img_0676 Halloween 4 and introduced Jamie, the daughter of Laurie Strode (who has died in a car accident) and the niece of Michael Myers. The character was well received by new comers and fans a like. There’s an excellent, super-dark twist at the end, but it’s hard to get past the feeling of wanting Michael to pick on someone his own size.

 

 

 

4) Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982)

img_0675The cult favorite of the series, “Halloween III” offers a  Michael Myersless  tale about a diabolical toymaker and his boobytrapped masks instead. Carpenter showing how evil can take a new shape. It’s follows Tom Atkins as he try to save the town from the silver shamrock toy company.

3) Halloween II (1981)

The first Halloween sequel is one of the better entries in the franchise. This film isn’t borderline needed. Not that there was anything wrong with it other than that wig they gave Jamie Lee. This film is a victim of Hollywood box office greed. The original film contains a very satisfying ending. Most of the original players did return to do the sequel, a continuation of the night that evil came home.  A night a mayhem taking place in a hospital, Micheal looks to get his revenge.img_0674

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2) Halloween (2018)

40 years in the making Laurie Strode is finally ready to confront her attacker.

img_0672

The hunted has become the huntress. David Gordon Green’s attempt at realign the franchise. While towing the line horror and humor, this film is what most of have been waiting for since the the original. A sequel with Laurie Strobe that makes sense all the way around. The film is clever as it delivers a new story that seems all to familiar thanks to suttle use  calls backs, memory lane for most and a refreshing start for years to come

 

 

1) Halloween (1978)
