    Time and place are two things I pay a lot of attention to in movies. I like when there is an attention to detail that cements of film in a place, and also shows a passage of time, no matter how long or brief.

    Looks intriguing, but "Science Fiction Volume One"? Huh?

    Gotta say I disagree with the timeline problems others have aired.

    At no point felt confused about how much time had passed.
    Same.

    Watched Bram Stoker's Dracula (aka Dan Curtis' Dracula), a 1974 television film with Jack Palance as the Count. Surprisingly effective, with Palance delivering a somewhat subdued performance. Of course several liberties have been taken with the source material, and in fact it is a very streamlined production focusing mostly on Dr. Van Helsing and Arthur Holmwood's attempts to track down and destroy the vampire following the death of Arthur's fiancé, Lucy. The book's basic structure is there, but many elements have been eliminated (including Renfield and Dr. Seward's mental hospital). for a 70's TV movie it is also surprisingly theatrical looking thanks to the cinematography of Oswald Morris. If you like the Hammer style of gothic horror, then this is an easy recommendation.

    Very cool, thanks Devlin. It's always been in my radar but now I'll make a point of seeing it.

    It and the Frank Langella version are two visions of the Count that I have yet to check out.

    The Frank Langella version is one of my favorite adaptations. Very stylish, with a great cast. It also has a terrific score by John Williams (very underrated, and rarely mentioned when his body of work is discussed in the media).

    How about the version with Louis Jordan? Anyone seen that one?

    I've heard it referred to as the most faithful to the source material.

    I just re-watched the franchise a few months ago; Here were my ratings

    1. Halloween (2007) ★★★★
    2. Halloween: H20 ★★★˝
    3. Halloween III: Season of the Witch ★★★
    4. Halloween ★★˝
    5. Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers ★★˝
    6. Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers ★★˝
    7. Halloween II ★★
    8. Halloween: Resurrection ★
    9 Halloween II (2009) ★
    10. Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers ˝

    Here were my notes for #4

    A direct sequel from Carpenter's- and although they build on the Michael Myers legend, and showcase his pure evil power, the script is super weak and boring. Halloween 2 does however, showcase THE BEST SET OF BREASTS EVER TO GRACE THE SILVER SCREEN, and the gore is a step up from its predecessor, but I've never heard of a hospital with a staff of 2 and a patient of 3. I also find it hilarious at the end of the movie, they put her into another ambulance, presumably to take her to another hospital that actually has doctors.

    Gore-5/10
    Acting-5/10
    Nudity-10/10 (hot tub scene)
    Story-6/10
    Cheese-2/10
    Overall Score=5

    Zombie's Halloween is the best of the franchise.

    Letterboxd is really helpful in reminding me why I rated movies the way I did. Here's my review of Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers

    lol

    Dreadful. It's unbelievable this script was green-lit. It makes little to no sense with the rest of the series (at least Season of the Witch made an attempt to capitalize on the fear of Michael Myers). This movie takes place a year after the events in Halloween IV, which means Myers escaped the explosion, the mine shaft, down a driver, and was (supposedly) taken in by a hermit in the woods and kept him alive for 365 days. That's right. The hermit lived with Michael for exactly one year to the next Halloween. Michael just laid there on a table motionless until the following Halloween eve. How convenient. Then Michael suddenly awakens and decides it's time to go kill his sister's daughter (Jamie) again. [Speaking of which, why is Michael so hell bent on killing Jamie and not his sister? So because Laurie leaves town he decides she's not important anymore? Why doesn't Jamie just leave town?] Michael will probably resort to going after Jamie's 65th cousin or something. In this movie Michael is not only a stalker, but he's also a master of disguise when he kills his niece's stepmother's friend's boyfriend and replaces his white Captain Kirk mask with a different Halloween mask to take his niece's stepmother's friend (Tina) on a date- He also knows exactly where she lives to pick her up in her dead boyfriends car and even bothers to stop at a gas station when she asks for cigarettes. Also, why is Tina the star of this movie? Why are we supposed to care about her? Because I'm pretty sure no one does. It was just a matter of time before she met her demise- which would be the 4th time this lazy Haddonfield police force gets humiliated.

    Gore-3/10
    Acting-5/10
    Nudity-2/10 (1 sex scene, no nudity, 1 translucent shower curtain)
    Story-0/10
    Cheese-1/10
    Overall Score=0

    I've seen that one too, but it's been a long time. I remember it being very faithful to the novel. The main drawback is the production values. This was a BBC production from the 70's and has that tv video quality. Still, I remember enjoying it and would like to see it again.

    I agree.
    I'm a huge fan of Carpenter's original (one of my all time favorite movies), but have no love for any of the sequels or remakes (and I've seen them all). Starting with Halloween II the filmmakers seemed to lose sight of what made the first film so special. The suspense was terribly minimized in favor of ramping up the gore factor to compete with such inferior products like Friday the 13th, and [
    ]
    As for the Rob Zombie films, the less said the better. I just find them completely unwatchable.
    With Carpenter and Curtis involved in the new film my interest is peaked, but I will approach this project with low, low expectations. Maybe I'll be surprised, but I'm not expecting much.

    I think H2 is better than Zombie's first.

    But that's not saying a heck of a lot.

    Put me in the camp of enjoying Zombie's Halloween flicks. I did not enjoy the second one initially, but it grew on my substantially. I never saw the theatrical version of the first, and have only seen the directors cut.

    Go out for a dinner still dressed like you're in your living room. You wear those big, you wear those big hippity hoppity clown shoes and you speak to women terribly. You treat them despicably. You hurt harmless dogs that can't even defend themselves. I'm tired of you man. I'm tired of you, you embarrass me.

    The Zombie films are the only Halloween films in which Meyers is actually a terrifying presence. So good. Some of the only slasher films to actually scare me because of how brutal and powerful the antagonist is.
