Halloween Series Review

Updated on May 21, 2019

The Review

Well, after sitting through ten movies, the first one from 1978 and the last one from 2018, I have to say that the hype for these movies are very clearly exaggerated. I sat through almost 20 hours to watch these films out of sheer boredom and my unwavering love for horror movies and I was so utterly disappointed, its not even funny.

For those who don't know, Halloween is a horror, thriller series which consists of an abused child turned serial killer, killing his father, older sister and her boyfriend on Halloween in 1963. Subsequently, he ends up being admitted into a psychiatric facility. Fifteen years later, on Halloween night 1978, he breaks out of the facility to murder his younger sister, his last remaining family member. Oh and to top it off, he wears a freaky Halloween mask.

1978 - 2002

Horror Letdowns

“It's Halloween, everyone's entitled to one good scare.”

These movies might have been the scariest slasher movies in the 70s and the 80s but they just don't cut it today. With the advancements in psychology, people tend to understand serial killers and people with psychological problems and therefore, they expect more from films about deranged, serial killers. This series could have been so much better but sadly they weren't.

2007 - 2018

The latest part of the movie was more interesting than the first ones as they showed how Micheal Myers became a serial killing psychopath. They showed his abusive household and after his initial murders, how he was treated and what lead to his breakout. Moreover, the movies have more sexual content and violence as compared to the first ones which was not much of an improvement. The series were just disappointing. If you're into the horror-slasher genre filled with blood and gore, I would suggest watching the SAW series, they'll set you straight.

The Verdict

Hopefully, after going through the article you will save yourself from the torture I willingly endured and avoid watching this series of disappointing movies altogether. Save yourselves from the mind numbing, pointless blood and gore, which (due to the era in which it was made) is comical, to say the least.

Ending this with a quote from Micheal Myers' psychiatrist Doctor Loomis which will, hopefully, make you believe that the movie is nothing but a cheesy thriller,

"I met him, fifteen years ago. I was told there was nothing left. No reason, no conscience, no understanding; even the most rudimentary sense of life or death, good or evil, right or wrong. I met this six-year-old child, with this blank, pale, emotionless face and, the blackest eyes... the *devil's* eyes. I spent eight years trying to reach him, and then another seven trying to keep him locked up because I realized what was living behind that boy's eyes was purely and simply... *evil*."
