Trigger warning in full effect. This is a list on which films I think are the best to the films I think are the worst. This is NOT based on my personal favorites. My opinion is influencing this list, but it's more of what I think has a great story, well made & how true to the spirit of the franchise it is. This means I will praise movies that may not be my favorites and rag on those that are.
1. Halloween (1978): It's the original. It set the standard for the rest of the films and for other slashers after it. Such a good movie.
2. Halloween II (1981): The movie that feels most like the original. It flows very well with it, even if it became more of a stereotypical slasher.
3. Halloween H20: A great story and continuation of the first 2 movies. JLC was awesome here.
4. Halloween (2018): A very well made film and a cool story to tell. It does feel like a Halloween film.
5. Halloween 4: A good story with a good atmosphere. There are minor problems, but it's still good.
6. Halloween III: A crazy story for sure, but it did it's own thing and it did it pretty well.
7. Halloween 6 (Theatrical): It has good gore and Michael is great here, but the story is a bit off with the Thorn Cult. I like it, but I understand why others don't.
8. Halloween 5: The start of the fuck ups. So many things went wrong with this movie. I like the movie, but it is pretty bad.
9. Halloween 6 (Producer's Cut): This one was far out in the realm of craziness. The baby being Michael's was put out in the open here and I don't like that at all.
10. Halloween (2007): While enjoyable in the 2nd half, the beginning is just not needed. Michael being a stereotypical killer who had a bad childhood isn't what Halloween was about.
11. Halloween: Resurrection: A tech Halloween film that was just weird. The "reality" show and cameras was just a dumb idea to me. Pretty boring too.
12. Halloween II (2009): Probably the most far out, batshit insane Halloween film. Definitely not close to what the original story was. . . .
