I still have to see Rob Zombie's Halloween 2, although I'm not in such a big hurry - his first Halloween remake didn't do much for me.

It was that film that did it. I'd never been so terrified by a film in all of my life. Nor perhaps have I been sense.

I couldn't sleep the night I watched it. I kept seeing that clown everytime I closed my eyes.

The next night was almost as bad.

I ended up reading the book to try and get some peace on the subject and that worked pretty well.

Then I became a mega King fan, but now I'm beginning to turn on him the more I delve into his career.

Anyways, I think the reason that the film version of Pennywise is SO scary is because Tim Curry handles the role in the same way he does EVERY role of his, so it made the character far too familiar and realistic for me, as a huge Curry fan.

The Halloween (it's either 4 or 5) where they have the little psychic girl, is just awful. And it's on EVERY YEAR.

The original is so badass. The atmosphere Carpenter created in the film is one of a kind. It was filmed in California, but it fucking feels like Illinois.

They're both awful until you look closer at the ending of the second one. Then it suddenly becomes an ok movie.

Yeah, I think she's in both - Danielle Harris. Turner Classic Movies wouldn't stop playing those for a time, even when it was nowhere near Halloween season. That network has incredibly low standards for the term "classic."

I watched 4 ONCE and I don't remember a damn thing that happens in it. And I tried to watch the 5th one once and it just wasn't happening.

I remember that the actor who played Michael in 4 or 5 moved like a damned robot. How bad do you have to be to suck at playing Michael Myers?

As I recall, the only thing 5 had going for it was that you saw Meyer's face? Or something like that. I don't even recall said event.

You see his face for a second at the end of the original.

Seems right. On the other hand, you see his face in the first one, even if it is only for a half a second.

EDIT: Ah, you beat me to it.

Yeah part 5 you can see a little bit of his face near the end. What I loved about part 1 is how simple John Carpenter kept it but it still scares the hell out of you.

That's the thing yeah, you do see his face in the original, so what my post originally should have said was that 5 has NOTHING going for it.

Exactly. It was a breakthrough film as well, inspiring loads of crappy copycats. I still think of Jason Voorhees as a Michael Myers ripoff.

The scariest movie I ever saw was "The Exorcist"--and I will NEVER watch it again!

A few weeks ago when we were at Disney World, we went to Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom. Before you scoff, just let me say that people are seriously into costumes for that shindig. Since we flew to/from Florida, we had very limited space for costumes--so we ended up in those lame false nose/glasses/eyebrows/moustaches. But it was fun, and we got tons of candy!

Absolutely. The Friday the 13th series was a total ripoff, in an attempt to cash in. And it worked, because those movies were successful.

Like I said a couple pages ago, I watched a couple of them last week and I find them entertaining enough. It's cheesy '80s stuff, and there are cute girls runnin around.

All this talk of the Halloween movies, and AMC is running 4 and 5 back to back starting in an hour. I might actually sit down and watch a little bit of it, just because of this conversation.
