    Oh wow. Did not expect to see two votes for Halloween II '81. Or 5. They're two of my favorite sequels.

    That said. I just watched Halloween II again, and I do agree that it's a bit dull. I love it, but... man, its pacing is ROUGH! Used to be my favorite Halloween. Now, it may have dropped 3 spots! Count 'em, 3! Right behind III, V and I. But I'm not sure. The murder scenes are great, but I... just... want... it... to... move! I feel like Jamie when watching it at times. Aesthetics are great though. But yeah... wow... it's not my favorite anymore. :(

    I always liked the sister angle. It makes perfect sense to me. After all, it is already blatantly obvious in the first one that Michael is re-enacting his original crime - for instance, one victim is sprawled on a bed with his sister's headstone behind her. Of course, the best surrogate for Judith Myers would be an actual sister, which is the reason why Michael devotes special attention to Laurie - all the other victims are killed rather frankly, but it's Laurie that he stalks so patiently throughout the day.

    Since I don't count the Zombie abominations, Resurrection.

    Wow! That would be an awesome title for a movie: Zombie Abominations!

    Resurrection wins it for me (or loses it for me). It's a nice looking terrible film.

    Russurection, No contest! Such a shameless product marketed to the lowest common denominator of the era using stupid, dated fads. Busta was painfully bad and was just put in there to bring in kids with bad music taste and to deliver corny lines that we are expected to laugh and cheer at. The only tolerable part of that movie is the first 10 minutes.

    I just can't build up the tolerance to re-watch any of the Rob Zombie Halloween efforts, so that dictates that they are the worst of the franchise for me.
    Of the originals? Halloween Resurrection, I thought Busta Rhymes was awful, and the whole mess was just forgettable. Also, the reality show angle had run its course with me by the time I saw this.

    Resurrection. Busta kills Michael. The greatest insult, not only to the Halloween series, but to Carpenter, the horror genre, the art of cinema and America.

    I had to go with the remake. While I think that Resurrection was probably the stupidest, I absolutely hated the remake. It is the only one that I have traded at a used video store...

    Would the person who voted for the original please stand up and defend yourself?

    I agree. I also thought there was always something creepy about having a maniac that is also a family member hellbent on killing you.

    "It borrowed too much from Parts 2, 4 and 5. Also, replacing Adam Arkin from H20 with Donald Pleasence was a poor choice."

    I've never been a fan of all these big horror franchises (Halloween, Friday the 13th, NOES, Hellraiser, etc.) and usually passed on most of the offerings after the first couple of installments. This makes it tough to vote in this case because I honestly don't remember which ones I might have seen after Halloween III (although suffice to say that I thought they all sucked). Hell, in Halloween's case I don't remember particularly liking even the first sequel. That being said, I'll cast my vote for the unnecessary and horrible remake.

    I voted for Part 6 (Curse). I'm surprised to see Part 8 (Resurrection) winning (losing?) by a landslide. 8 is certainly a bad Halloween movie, but 6 turning Myers into some kind of Druid Terminator goes beyond being merely bad to trashing the whole mythology. It's like making Jason a body-swapping parasite, or Godzilla afraid of the military.

    Halloween: Resurrection is a bad horror movie, but it's a pretty good comedy.

    Therefore, I went with the remake. I don't mind what Zombie did with Myers, but the female leads were horrendously obnoxious.
