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.

The movie ended on such a great cliffhanger. Like, I cannot think of a better way to end a movie like this. Sure, I knew Michael survives because knew that there were more films in the series. The movie had a more realistic feel rather than the documentary style of TCM. The music is eerie and classic. There are some moments in the film that are kinda boring, but the overall film is great. I like how John Carpenter developed Michael to be the silent killer. It makes it more suspenseful and even more creepy. Without a doubt a must watch. Horror movie fan or not, it is great.

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

Pure, simple, no Cult of Thorn or that Schizophrenia plot Zombie created. It began the best slasher series of all time. Started the slasher genre. It also had the original scores, "The Shape Stalks" and "The Shape Lurks." No over-the-top gore, and it made Michael seem like the real Bogeyman.

2 Halloween II (1981)

The movie barely had Jamie Lee Curtis in it! When she was in it, she was sedated. Her very interesting friends had already died in the original. To me, a stale sequel.

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

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!

Would this count as Halloween 7? - WorldPuncher47592834

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.

This movie is actually pretty good. The reason is ranks so low and why people hate it is because it doesn't have Michael Myers in it. This is a truly underrated movie, and I recommend everyone to at least give it a watch.
