Top Ten Halloween Movies Of All Time

By Halloween, I mean the Halloween Series, Including Remakes.

The Top Ten

1 Halloween (1978)

The original will always be the greatest. Parts 2 and H20 are proper sequels thanks to Jamie Lee Curtis. However, the performances of Donald Pleasence & even Danielle Harris in parts 5 & 6 make these fun watches. The 6th installment is underrated and has a much better cut that has never been released. Both versions have add a darker tone to the series. Easily the scariest of the sequels. Halloween resurrection is forgetable and easily the worst. I never counted that one. Rob Zombies additions mixes up the formula for the better. Both of his Halloween films are gritty and dark, but neither surpass the original or is quite on par with Halloween 6 : producers cut in terms of darker themes/ tones. Also, Halloween 3 is a likable movie for what it is.

Halloween remake sucked, Not worse than season of the witch, but it was bad, the way it should be organized
middle 5 are of your choosing
9)Remake sequel

This was the beginning and the end of the series, in my opinion. It was hands down better than any of its sequels. The storylines fell flat or just got ridiculous.

All movies rated in one word-

1) good
2) also good
3) bad...becuase Michael isn't their so it isn't Halloween...
4)okay...we finally see our favourite star back to normal besides the mask -.-
the rest are Horrible and bad... it's my opinions...;-;

ಠ_ಠ rob zombie made the series worster as sharknado...ITS TRUE

2 Halloween II (1981)

One of the best sequels ever, and suck an underrated movie.

This movie built upon the already amazing original, and while that movie is undoubtedly fantastic, Halloween 2 is in my opinion, better. It's more entertaining, rewatchable, and it's just a great movie.

Halloween 2 is my favourite horror movie of all time above all others. - Chadwick

Halloween 2 is as good as the original.

3 Halloween H20: 20 Years Later

The original was brilliant. And I honestly believe this is one of the best-written sequels of all time! This was such a great way to revive the series after 20 years. The story for this one was great. The character development was awesome. This completed the arc of the Laurie Strode character. Amazing movie.

Added more character development to Laurie Strode

I love this movie, it make Michael look like A BOSS!

Put this in Number 3 PLEASE!

4 Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers

My favorite Halloween even better than the first one which was a bit slow (but I still love it)

I love halloween 4 this movie is one of the better sequels in the franchise and I love jamie and rachel.

Good movie, love how Michael returns after the failling 3rd movie that had nothing to do with Michael - IzzyStyles1994

Better than 2- 8 and the remakes. The best of the sequels

6 Halloween 5 - The Revenge of Michael Myers

So dark & disturbing. If 6 had followed the formula this one set, it easily would have been the greatest Halloween.

Michael seemed more human than ever in this one. - Drewstar

Better than Halloween 4

7 Halloween III - Season of the Witch

Halloween III is by and far the black sheep of the franchise, and understandably so; however, when taken as a stand-alone film, you find yourself face to face with a decently done and fairly entertaining horror film of the 1980s, and it's worth watching at least once. - JR302

The only one with originality (except for the original which kind of created the slasher genre). I say this because all other Michael Meyers Halloween films are the same old refurbished crap that always seems to get worse each time you see it. Stick to Halloween 1-3.

This movie stunk. I tried watching it once and I HATED it. It's stupid, boring, it has nothing to do with Michael Myers or the rest of the franchise. It's pointless. Crap from start to finish. I will never make the mistake of watching this garbage movie ever again.

The only reason why this one doesn't go with the rest of the series is because John Carpenter originally wanted the Halloween franchise to be a collection of stories, not focused on one particular story. Fans were so enraged at this to the point where John Carpenter immediately went to writing another. Which is why Part IV is aptly titled "The Return of Michael Myers". With that out of the way, if it was a standalone title, it would still be a bad movie. The acting is benign and the storyline makes no sense whatsoever. The camerawork is terrible and the score sounds like something a person with a lot of time on their hands would make in Mario Paint.
