you know in halloween 6 where michael isn't able to move past the rune blood thing that tommy made? imagine his gf/bf doing this when they're mad at him, so the poor big baby has to just stand there and watch his love go about their day/night. maybe even croaking out a few apologies so he can join them hehe

I saw the new “Halloween” today and so I’m on a MASSIVE Michael kick right now…I just…I just love him so much 🖤

Michael x upset s/o 

  • Michael didn’t believe you when you told him that he wouldn’t be touching or talking to you the rest of the night during a fight, and frankly, he didn’t act like he cared either. But as soon as Michael can’t walk through the bedroom door, he realizes that you were serious. 
  • At first, Michael will just scoff, leaving you alone and going downstairs in order to take his mind off you and his anger. 
  • However, as the night progresses and Michael hears you going about your life without him, he becomes more and more lonely without you. He thinks the idea is silly at first, for Michael never needed anyone in his loneliest times and you were just up the stairs. But, as time progresses, Michael longs for your touch more and more. 
  • Eventually Michael will go up the stairs once more, thinking about giving you a piece of his mind, but once he sees you in bed by yourself on the verge of tears, Michael just completely drops his facade. 
  • You’ll hear his quiet voice tell you apologizes, begging you not to cry and to just let him in. And of course, after some thought you eventually do. 
  • Once you run into Michael’s arms he embraces you tightly, stroking your cheek gently with his rough hands as he sighs in content, giving you kisses on your forehead and nose as an apology.
  • That night Michael will hold you tightly, staring at you with a slight smile as he thinks about how lucky he is to have you, even when you get angry with him. 

Ranking all 11 Halloween films.

A couple of years ago an average horror fan would have thought the Halloween franchise was (pardon the pun) dead and buried. With the series reboots failing to gain enough interest and Dimension Films losing the rights to the franchise, everyone thought one of the most prolific killers in film history was now in retirement. That was until comedian Danny McBride took interest in breathing new life into the franchise. McBride proved he could handle the role of being a more serious actor when he starred in 2017′s Alien: Covenant and fans were eager to see what he could do to bring back a character who had been killing teens for 40 years. 

Today I present my list and rankings of all 11 Halloween films:

11. Halloween Resurrection (2002)

Strangely it was decided to use techniques used in ‘The Blair Witch Project’ in an attempt to make this film scarier. We have a bunch of kid using hand-held cameras videotaping their experiences in Michael Myers’ house for a reality show.  Is it surprising that he comes back to kill them all? Busta Rhymes plays a clueless TV producer who fights Michael Myers with Kung Fu, and somehow lives. No joke! Just dreadful.

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

A gore fest with a confusing plot with a young and inexperienced Paul Rudd thrown into the mix. The film’s producer and director both had different visions of how this film should be created, the studio had even worse ideas, and this is the result. Danielle Harris, who played Laurie Strode’s daughter Jamie Lloyd was ousted by the studio for refusing to be paid a minuscule salary and having her character be killed in the first act of the film. Overall not really worth watching.

9. Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers (1989)

No thank you. Halloween 5 is Halloween 4’s less original cousin. She likes to act like number 4, dress like her, walk and talk like her, but she is just bland and vapid.

Plagued with the infamous rushed-studio schedule and weak script, Halloween 5 is a mess of a film. Shot and released within a year of part 4, we see Jamie Lloyd in a mental institution voiceless and unable to cope with the previous year’s events. Briefly mentioned is the ending of Halloween 4, and it is explained away as her trauma. Donald Pleasance returns as Dr. Loomis, and the cast is rounded out by a group of unlikeable teens. This is a typical 80s slasher that promises and delivers nothing except an unmasking of Michael Myers, which is really nothing to write home about.

8. Halloween II (Sequel of the 2007 remake -2009)

Halloween II had a lot of promise, but it feels disjointed. Without Michael Myers it could be a good study on redneck American culture and adolescent pain. Rob Zombie’s sequel feels more like a gory Netflix series rather than a film but because of its original take, and hillbilly (or hellbilly) feel, there is a great deal of suspense. What ruins the movie is unfortunately the use of his wife, Sherri Moon Zombie, as a cheesy ghost motivating Michael Myers rampage.

What really interested me though was final girl, Laurie Strode’s mental state. Is she crazy or a victim of a cycle of psychosis or even a victim of some evil possession? The ambiguity is both intriguing and frustrating and ultimately leads nowhere.

7. Halloween 4: The Curse of Michael Myers (1988)

After Halloween 3′s original story crashed and burned, producer Mustafa Akkad wanted to bring back Michael Myers, and the result was quite formulaic. This is very much an 80s slasher film that does a bit of a disservice to the original two films. Lazily, Jamie Lee Curtis’s character of Laurie Strode is killed a year prior in a car crash, leaving her eight year old daughter to be hunted down by Myers. In typical 80s slasher form, there are a bunch of inarticulate and stereotypical teens who appear to be in their late 20s, who are randomly picked off one by one. Not a bad addition to the series, but like the remaking of Myer’s mask, its quite cheap without a lot of attention to detail. 

6. Halloween (Remake - 2007)

I will give director Rob Zombie credit for taking an original and unique approach to rebooting one of horrors most classic films. The error in this reboot, and the error in most modern horror films was making it so violent. There is nothing left to the imagination in this film and the acts of murderous rage almost seem unnatural. Michael Myers seems hell bent on pure destruction and yet at the same time we are introduced to his back-story, a reverse engineering of how film plots normally work. Overall, it’s a so-so film.

5. Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982)

An original sequel to Halloween. John Carpenter originally wanted the Halloween films to be an anthology with a different and original story appearing in each film. The plot revolves around the deadly secrets within a factory that creates the most sought after Halloween masks, with a local doctor and daughter of the a murdered worker aiming to unearth the truth. After the critical and commercial failure the studio brought Michael Myers back for the sequel. Aspects of “Season of the Witch” are quite frightening, however the effects don’t always work (i.e. the papier mache head of the lead villain). Though this film was panned it has somewhat stood the test of time and I will give it credit for trying something different.

4. Halloween II (1981)

Curtis came back 3 years after the original to portray Laurie Strode, though she then swore it would be her last horror film. Halloween II takes place minutes after the first one ends with Michael Myers missing from the crime scene and leaving a body trail in his attempt to kill Strode. Curtis had a very tight filming schedule, so most of her role is reduced to being in a hospital bed. Donald Pleasance returns and his character becomes the main focus of the film.

Overall the scares and gore were impressive, though the script was not as original. I believe this is one of the stronger entries in the series due to the inclusion of Curtis and Pleasance and John Carpenter returning to produce as well co-write the script.

3. Halloween H20: Twenty Years Later (1998)

H20 is not a bad film in the least, but it does have its problems. The films producers wanted to have Curtis come back one last time as Laurie Strode, but had a considerable problem tying in the parts 4-6 as their plotline had Strode killed a year prior. Several drafts of the script exist, one in which it is stated that Strode faked her death and gave her daughter up for adoption to be free of the Myer’s family curse, but due to plot holes this was abandoned. In the end parts 4-6 were deleted from the continuity and H20 became the direct sequel to 1981’s Halloween 2. In retrospect this was a great idea, as feminism in horror films was on the rise after the success of 1996’s self-aware horror hit Scream.

The problems arose in the minute details such as Michael Myers mask being oddly shaped on the actor’s head, parts of the music being recycled from Scream 2 score and even the inclusion of said film playing on a TV, though it only had been released in theatres 7 months previous. Funnily enough the original Halloween plays on TV in the original Scream, making a very meta statement. If the girls had been watching the original Scream, would they have seen the scenes of the original Halloween, and therefore would they then realize they were in a film? Overall though, the film does work.

2. Halloween (Sequel to the original - 2018)

The 2018 entry of Halloween is a sequel to the original and negates and dismisses the other lore from the series, even including the other films starring Jamie Lee Curtis. This movie mostly works because it humanizes Michael Myers; he’s a driven killer who is not at all supernatural. Curtis approaches her role more like Linda Hamilton in Terminator 2 as a broken Laurie Strode is now a gun-toting survivalist, dedicated in protecting her estranged family at all costs. At times the film suffers from moments of unnecessary humour that breaks the growing tension, this may have been due to Danny McBride’s involvement. I also felt though well shot and acted, at times the plot line felt a bit rushed, but overall it is a fresh take on the series, and horror films in general and it is a wonderful addition despite the controversial decision to retcon most of the series.

1. Halloween (1978)

It’s hard to beat the original. John Carpenter’s vision is truly terrifying in that ‘it could happen to you’ kind of way. Haddonfield in a small and sleepy suburban town where it seems not much happens, well except for a string of babysitter killings. Halloween, though not the first film to do a slasher POV, truly is a masterpiece in itself. It was made for next to no money ($250,000 USD) and grossed $50 Million USD, a rare feat for horror movies in general. A truly suspenseful and terrifying film produced, directed, composed and co-written by John Carpenter. The film is scary without resorting to blood or gore or special effects but just pure tension. Jamie Lee Curtis, in her first film role, is brilliant because she brings an iconic level of vulnerability and power to her performance. The last shot of film still brings me chills, but I will leave you to watch it to see if you agree.
