View Full Version : Favorite Debra Hill production?

In honor of Debra Hill's untimely death, let's all celebrate the fine body of work she had carved for herself over the years. Although she will undoubtedly be remembered for her Carpenter collaborations, and with good reason, she never the less produced a number of other solid films. So which is your favorite?

Sorry - but there's nothing better than Halloween, imo. It's just one of my favorites, and though she might well have worked on a vast range of other things, it'll always be about Halloween for me.

Halloween...Escape from New York and The Dead Zone are both excellent films, and among my favorites, but Halloween will always stick out to me above others. I have fond memories of watching it when I was 8 or 9 when I shouldn't have been, and being scared witless. Great times :D

Halloween is the best. but I also loved The Dead Zone and Clue. awesome stuff i must say.

Halloween, without a doubt...but a fine body of work....and one that came to an end way to soon.

What?!!?!?! When?!?! How?!?! Where The Fuck Have I Been?!!?!

The Dead Zone, it's a Stephen King film it'll always be better for me.

It's amazing to see how many great movies Debra Hill produced.

Escape From New York for me. Halloween was great and all, but I've always just loved EFNY since seeing the poster for it, and it holds up well even now.

I went with the Fog. Halloween is good but I am just growing tired of it after all this time.

Put me down for "the Fog", with "Escape from New York" second and "Adventures in Babysitting" a close third. What?!....It's a guilty pleasure. :D

Definitely Halloween, but I also love The Fog, Halloween II, Halloween III, The Dead Zone, Clue, and I'm sure many more that aren't on the list. She really has had an amazing career, but it's such a shame that it ended so soon. :(

I'm going with Halloween. Rest in peace Debra.

Definitely Halloween for me. Adventures in Babysitting would probably come in second. But, I enjoy all of the films she produced on the list.

A difficult choice,she worked on a lot of terrific films,but in recent years I find myself returning to THE FOG.That movie has a wonderful atmosphere,certainly one of Carpenter (and Hill's) more underrated films.

She was battling cancer for about a year.

It's got to be The Fog. It's such a beautiful and atmospheric movie.

The Fog by far, love those seafaring ghost stories and everything about that film seems right, from the cinematography to the location to the atmosphere to the great cast.
