Re: Is "Halloween" Still Scary 35 Years Later?

Halloween thread what's so great about Halloween is the storyline is scary as fuck. Him killing his sister when he was just 6 year old, it still gives me chills just thinking about it!!! John Carpenter is genius, the Movie is not just trying to scare you, it has actually backstory unlike horror Movies today. One of few Movies i can go back and watch it like it's my first time even tho' i watched like 30 times...

Agreed. IMO, it's the grittiness of the film itself that gives it such an experience. On top of the fact that it almost feels like a documentary/found footage films. Just look...

IMO, Dr. Loomis was every bit as important to the Halloween movies as Michael himself. After Donald Pleasence died, the series effectively ended for me. H20 was not a terrible movie but Halloween is just not the same without Dr. Loomis.
H20 is iffy for me. It feels like it could have been a direct sequel to II, which is an interesting idea, but it pretty much just shat on the previous three films by not recognizing them whatsoever. I also think that it would have been a better film if Donald Pleasence hand't died soon after filming VI. It just felt like the movie was missing a vital piece, and he was it. Although, I will give it credit, it gave a perfect ending to the series. Laurie finally getting her revenge and putting Michael away for good.

Oh, and fuck that last one. Not only using "Resurrection" as a subtitle, which is probably the most overused subtitle ever, but having Michael Myers facing off with Busta Rhymes of all people made this film a complete and utter joke which I don't even consider canon. H20 ended the series for me.

One more thing about Halloween...



SUCH an iconic theme song.
I actually prefer the second film's score...



That little intro is just so off putting. And it's so 80's

Freakin' hell, speak of the damned devil... AMC is marathoning all 4 Alien movies today, starting at 12:30 PM EST. I usually skip 3 when watching them but I'll watch 1, 2 and 4.

Yeah. If you fix the continuity issues and add Loomis, it all of a sudden becomes a perfect ending to the series.

I agree with this 1000%. Michael finally died at the end of H20. Laurie survived. It wrapped things up nicely. I knew Resurrection was going to be bullfuckery right from the start when they shat on the ending of H20 by claiming it wasn't Michael who Laurie killed and the killing of Laurie too. JLC should have never agreed to be a part of it.

Also, no one was even resurrected.

I don't dislike the 2nd score but I think the more simplistic 1st version is more effective.

DR LOOMIS vs MIKE MYERS is one of the best movie feuds ever

Are you confusing Halloween and Friday the 13th?

In first place, because is pretty difficult to be really scared by a movie. And if scare is the main task of a movie you can put scenes with shockers between everything and you will almost always get a result.

Horror is more than that, is about the treatement on violence, about things we shouldn't accept and always condemn. Even when you see camp gore movies, like in the giallo, the idea is making fun of the love for violence.

Re: Is "Halloween" Still Scary 35 Years Later?

Still the greatest horror movie IMO.

Myers has always scared the crap outta me lol The way he was in that original, the mask, everything.

Never be equalled or beat, hear me Mr.Zombie (although I did like the mask he used)
