2 and 4 are superb
Thanks for the heads up - checked eBay and there was one ending in an hour which I snagged for a pretty reasonable figure!
Always found 2 to be overrated.
1. Halloween 78
2. Halloween 18
3. Halloween H20
4. Halloween 2
5. Halloween 4
6. Halloween 3
7. Rob Zombie’s Halloween
8. Halloween 6
9. Halloween 5
10. Rob Zombie’s Halloween 2
11. Halloween Resurrection
I’m hoping Halloween Kills just sky rockets into that top 3.
I don’t suffer from Zombie’s movies and don’t rank Season of the Witch alongside the rest.
LOVE this for you! It’s really very pretty.
I’m watching the original Hellraiser and wow this is bad.
Mine is very different from the rest of you:
Rob Zombie 1
Rob Zombie 2
3 is up there with 1 & 2 for me but I left off as it's the Michael Myers saga.
Halloween II is very underrated in my opinion. I personally love the hospital setting, I think Michael/his mask look the most creepiest out of all the films. The cast are pretty good (including a multiracial actor who plays Mrs. Alves, which I imagine was rare for the early 80's) and there's much better acting all round than the first Halloween. We get some inventive kills too. As horror sequels go, this was pretty solid and actually one of my favourites in the franchise.
I'll be sad to give my old faithful not-so-ultimate Ultimate Collection the kick though.
EDIT: They're selling for £50 on eBay. OK bye.
Probably mostly how some releases always have an issue, the replacement discs for a handful of their stuff, the slow shipping but for the most part, I adore this label. They've given a lot of niche and underrated, underappreciated films to be released and enjoyed. Their artworks, the bonuses are always great in my opinion. Same with Criterion!
Coming to Netflix on Wednesday
Watched the original Evil Dead tonight. I always forget how loud the movie is.
It got better near the end but the acting was AWFUL.
The trailer couldn't give more 'teen slasher made by Netflix' vibes..
I'm looking forward to it - the book was great.
I haven't watched a single film of any stature in weeks. Waiting for that Halloween box to arrive and then I'll bathe in some Haddonfieldian carnage.

I watched it for the first time a couple weeks ago and I did not like it at all. I just don't think it's for me, rather than thinking it wasn't good, ya know? Julia was a camp, horny queen. But otherwise I was like hmmm...
Granted I really can't get into entire subsets of horror like body horror, zombie films and werewolf/vampire films. I tend to gravitate towards slasher, ghosts, psychological horror and the occasional possession.
My bread and butter.
It gets a bad rap for obvious reasons but Halloween 3 is really fun if you know Michael Meyers isn't in it. The screenplay was by Nigel Kneale and it gets pretty gonzo in parts. And that ad jingle!
