Halloween

Killer: Michael Myers
Sequels: 6
Remakes: 2
Others: 1 sequel with another Halloween story (part 3) without Michael Myers and 2 documentaries (Halloween: The Inside Story and Halloween: 25 Years of Terror)
People who added this item 2271 Average listal rating (1502 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 0

One of the best slashers ever made. Thrilling, clever, fun, exciting, unique, classic.

Halloween II (1981)

That's what every single sequel should be. Starts where the first one ends and it happens even at the same night. It's more like you're watching the 'rest' of the first movie.
It loses some points for being a little bit too slow, but it got more blood and deaths. The hospital chase scenes are breathtaking.

It loses some points for ruin the end of the second movie and killing the best character for nothing. But at least we are introduced for the new main character, Jamie, interpreted beautifully for the young Danielle Harris.
You'll may miss more blood and it's defenitely the slower so far, but the final chase scene is worth waiting.
The end is one of the best I've seen.

It's more like a tribute for the fans. We have the best crew (including the come-back of our heroine Jamie Lee Curtis and other names like Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michelle Williams and Josh Hartnett).
It's actually another different sequel for the part 2.
It's like Scream with Michael Myers but it kind of worked. Good chase scenes and the reunion of Laurie Strode and Michael Myers is epic.

It's fail as a remake. First because the original movie didn't need a remake at all, everything was still fresh. Second because it made Michael looks like a victim of the society and not more that brutal, dark and mysterious killer. Anyway, it's good as horror movie. Enjoyable to watch with some friends and have fun.
Thumbs up for the come-back of Danielle Harris, who played our sweet Jamie in the part 4 and 5, now giving life for one of the Laurie's friends.

Really? I don't remember this movie at all. I just remember it's a fine story but with some stupid ideas.

An amazing opening scene, what a shame it just turned out to become another cliche horror movie, with fool teenagers and scenes after that. It's like you're watching just another fake Reality Show.

Stupid ideas. Too much 'blah blah blah' and few good scenes. They tried so hard to make sense that in the end it didn't make any sense at all.

It begins just like the original second part. Good.
And after half hour we discover it was just a dream. Then, we're introduced to one of the worst horror movies ever. All the characters we used to love are now jerks and you just beg Michael to kill them faster. If it wasn't enough, we have Michael's mom with a WHITE HORSE (wtf?) saying 'go on son, kill them'. Please, Rob Zombie, LEAVE MICHAEL ALONE.


Poor Michael, he's sad after this one.

Nightmare On Elm Street

Killer: Freddy Krueger
Sequels: 6
Remakes: 1
Others: A crossover (Freddy vs. Jason), a documentary (Never Sleep Again: The Making of A Nightmare on Elm Street) and a tv serie (Freddy's Nightmares).

Rising of Freddy Krueger, one of the biggest serial killers of all time. Incredible good scenes, deaths and screenplay.

Underrated, that's all. Great story and Freddy is badass as never.
The only bad thing is the cgi, a little bit too fake.

Here we have my favorite leading role of the whole franchise and also the most creative movie. What ruined it? Unfortunately the end. That 'X-men' thing didn't work at all.

Forget about the killer who used to take away your dreams. Now Freddy is just a Joker-Killer but at least we have some fun going out there.
Enjoyable slasher movie, nothing more than that.

That's a mess! I can remember just few good scenes and that's all. Bad story and bad acting. The only good thing is: Freddy at least is still badass and not just a joker.

Rachel Talalay was really lost when she shoot this. I mean, the movie has no point. Poor Freddy, look where they put you.
At least this is 'the final nightmare', you can rest now, boy.

Friday the 13th

Killer: Jason Voorhees

A great and gory slasher movie. Filled with a tone of cliches but still fun.

Just another Jason's sequel. They don't give a sh* about the plot, they just want to make deaths and more deaths (and of course, earn money).
But we don't have to complain, this one at least is pretty fun.

Jason X (2001)

A one-hour-an-half-joke. Does this joke seems funny? No, I know.


Sorry, Jason, all your friends had bad ends but you took it to a level no one ever (thanks god) took.

Fantasic List.
The only one I don't agree with is the remake of ANOES, I thought it was just bad.

Just looking over your list again..
Dream Warriors I believe had a great story line, but they tried too hard on the effects, which were very corny. Also, the whole thing of that one kid turning into a wizard in his dreams was a little stupid. Overall tho, it was a cool story line, with great deaths. What do you mean by "The x-men ending" tho?

Also.. where are..

Jason Goes To Hell: The Final Friday
Friday the 13th Part VIII
Friday the 13th Part VII
Friday the 13th: A New Beginning

Have you not seen them? Or did you forget to include them?

Love the list. I'd have to disagree with you on A Nightmare on ELm Street remake. Freddy sucked compared to Robert's version. The movie was full of ripped off scenes from the original. Hell they had Nancy's friend killed the exact same way wearing the exact same shirt. The only good thing about this movie was we got a look at Freddy's past

About the "x-men ending" I meant that thing about the teenagers fighting against Freddy with super powers. I thought hat was kinda odd. Anyway the plot and the deaths are great! It'd be on the top of my list if it wasn't that thing....

@jay-jay
Yeah most of people hated ANOES remake and I understand that, it's a matter of opinion of course. In my opinion the movie was really good and the worst part about it was actually Freddy's makeup, but the actor was scarier than the first Freddy. I liked the deaths, plot and the way they make Freddy a really badass about the story. Not a burning victim but someone that everybody would put fire on, if you know what I mean. Anyway I still agree the final part kind of sucked with that "Happy Ending", I'd rather the boy dead :D

The original Halloween is one of my favourite movies!! I agree, it's a classic. I actually didn't mind the 4th or the 5th, and I have yet to see the 2nd one and H2O. They look good.
FINALLY, someone else who likes the NOEM remake! I thought I was alone XD

Totally agree about Jason X. Jason in space? REALLY PEOPLE!? What's next? Jason goes to the supermarket? Good god. ^^
