sooooooooooooooooooo there’s going to be a new halloween movie coming out next month (DYING WITH ANTICIPATION), and my sister is actually flying in from LA to watch it with me and my fam. halloween is kind of… our thing. we grew up watching it form a young age (nope, i was never deathly scared of mikey as i was freddy or jason), and we passed it onto our cousins upstate. we can all quote it left and right, my sister and i just “know” the sounds and timing of everything… etc. so, that being said, we/i have a halloween obsession.
the new one coming out, if you’re unaware, is a reunion between michael and laurie strode (jamie lee curtis’s character) 37 years later. we’re supposed to disregard every other halloween film from the series but the original from 1978. for this film, she’s said that it’s basically her suffering from PTSD and it looks as if she’s turned into sarah connor. she is on a MISH to kill him this time around.
it’s kind of hard for me to totally get into or wrap my head around this, because i LOVE a lot of the other halloween movies. i was raised watching 1-5 as a kiddo, and i also grew to love 6 as an adult. i think i only saw h20 once or twice, but i don’t remember hating it, and i totally disregard everything after h20. don’t get me started on rob zombie’s piles of shit.
anysways, of course i’m hyped to see a new halloween movie, but looking at how many there were over the years is just criminal. there are 11 in that list, and we could have lived without a few of them. there are so many things people could argue about there… movies they love, hate, the hatred of a michael-free halloween III, etc. i figured i’d just break down my favorites/most hated. i just wanted to also touch on my utmost love for halloween II. spoilers for an almost 40 year old movie ahead? lol.
