Easy, Rob Zombie's Halloween

I'd even take Resurrection over it. The last thing I want to see again is a whining annoying Michael Myers kid.

I stopped watching at 3. really. I fast forwarded through the remake only for a topless Danielle Harris.

I was torn between voting for #2 or #4. I was tempted to go with 4, for simply existing. I liked the idea they began with 3, of having a different Halloween-themed movie every time, rather than trying to keep Michael Myers alive. Of course, the box office failure of Season of the Witch killed that plan.

So I went with 2, because it was the one that added the crap about Laurie being Michael's sister. I always preferred her just being a random victim, which makes it a lot scarier in my book.

I won't even consider Rob Zombie's films. I watched the first film and I refuse to watch the second one. I am not a fan of his films, but I am a huge fan of his music. I've seen White Zombie four times and him solo at least eight times over the years. "Resurrection" gets my vote over "Curse." At least "Curse" has Donald Pleasence.

I went with Resurrection, because Busta Rhymes should not be able to whip Michael Myers, but if the first half of Zombie's remake had been as bad as the second half I would have gone with that.

Though I have to say, every time I see the first kill in #2 and we see Michael's eye through the mask, get angry/ I'm sure we see his eyes in other movies as well, but that really leaps out at me for some reason. I always think that the eyeholes in his mask should look empty.

And count me as someone else who thinks that Season of the Witch should have been the template for further sequels.

Halloween II. It introduced the lame sister idea and is as dull as watching paint dry.

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.
