Now that is a complement if I've ever seen one. I voted for HALLOWEEN II, although I feel it is in many ways a real missed opportunity. With Carpenter so closely involved, it really should have turned out much better. HALLOWEEN 4 & 5 both have some fantastic moments (the end of 4 and the shute/field chases in 5) but in the end both are just too uneven. H20 is actually pretty good, with Jamie Lee giving probably the best performance of the entire series. Michelle Williams stands as a good Laurie Strode protégé too. THE CURSE is a steaming pile of goat shit, although I have yet to see the Producer's Cut. RESURRECTION is the most uneven of all, with the first part being excellent and the last three quarters being throwaway slasher cliche. I always get a lot of enjoyment out of III, even if I think it has been overly praised as something deeper than what it really is. As a new Halloween idea though, it is good B-movie fun. Overall the HALLOWEEN series has been good enough at least to have me always looking forward to the next sequel. I think the FRIDAY franchise has been consisently better, but I'd rank HALLOWEEN alongside the ANOES series in terms of quality. A little up and down, and never coming close to the original films, both series do still offer a number of good sequels. And as mediocre as some of the sequels in the HALLOWEEN franchise may be, nohting beats watching one of them on Halloween night with the blinds closed and the lights dimmed.
