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?

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.
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.

That's one of the few things that worked in TCM:TNG. Wasn't out of place at all. Especially considering where the idea for Leatherface came from originally.

part 8 by a mile.......

would have voted the remake ( I have some sick fascination for the remakes sequel, it handled themes in an interesting manner proceed with the comments on how stupid I am)

But Buster whatever ruined part 8, a fist fight with Michael , REALLY??, without him it might have been awful instead on an abomination
