After sifting through every installment of the Halloween series in a desperate attempt to quench my horror thirst during the hot summer months I have came to one conclusion. Michael Myers became a joke! I know there is boundless love for this character and I too am a fanboy but can we as fans not realize when enough is enough?
Dimension Films brutally killed Michael Myers in countless sequels ending with one of the worst movies ever to be recorded on 35mm film, Halloween 8. I just can't see why Halloween gets a pass. Is it because the mask is cool? Or is it some nostalgia from the late 70's that the public can't get over? These are just not good films.
Which brings me to the Rob Zombie remakes. Yes they are different but at least they made the character serious again and they were a giant leap forward in actually making Michael Myers seem "scary". Which you would think would be a must ingredient for the other 8 films, but it wasn't.
So why the love, am I just having a bad day or is this series just not that good?
