    I'm sorry - call me naive, call me whatever you want to - but what exactly does that have to do with anything?

    I don't let other people dictate my opinion for me. I'll tell a roomful of trendy High School Musical kids that Dead Alive is one of the greatest movies I've ever seen and a roomful of psychotic Metal Heads that Britney Spears has several amazing songs.

    Because when you've got your story - why wouldn't you stick to it?

    I'm not calling you anything...Just stating my feelings on why Halloween loses impact for me...nothing more, nothing less...

    Not trying to tell you what to say, think or believe...

    That is true. Can't really argue with that. I find the same thing with Scarface but the only difference is, I don't think that Scarface is that great, just very overrated.

    I know - I'm actually saying what good does it do to let other people make up your mind for you. You have to admit that's what you're doing.

    Hardly...I saw Halloween for the first time around 1980 or so...and it has followed me throughout the years...maybe I am burnt out on it by now...

    Well... I never considered that. I guess I've have to wait until 2017 or something, when I've had 26 or so years with my first-seen horror movies, I'll have more experience with that.

    I love them both, but Halloween gets the edge for me because of it has more interesting characters and looks amazing. Both are in my top 25 horror films though.

    Having just watched both films within the last couple of weeks. My opinion has only been reinforced. Black Christmas for me is the superior film of the two.

    Halloween, but BC has its merits too.

    Black Christmas even though it will never be embraced as much as Halloween.
