Just to make one
thing clear. I love this movie, probably as much as you do. That's why I tend to think the movies are too short. I always want more. I think this movie is a classic, and I think it's safe to say that I think it is a masperpiece. The fact is I think I would see the whole greatness better if this movie was just a stand alone movie.
I think this movie is more of a thriller than horror. And the fact that you don't get to see Myers in a lot of scenes and this movies suspenseful kind of theme.. or let me just say the movies classicness in general gives me more of a thriller feel!

I love that it turned out to be that mask. But remember we wouldn't have had to missed it if they didn't chose that mask, right? I just wish that they made their own mask, but most of all that it wasn't based on a real life persons face, that's all.
CallMeRetorik wrote:Which one of the versions did you see? A good horror film is about an hour and a half. This movie is 91 minutes - perfect! The pacing is great and everything was edited to perfection for that time - and everything holds up today.
All of the action starts towards the end - but c'mon! The whole aspect of the movie that makes it truly great is the mood and the score and this overall question in your mind about Michael stalking the girls. If you want action for the whole movie watch RZ's remake.
I agree. I both love the movie as it is, and sometimes wish you get to see more. The way you described it also reminds me of the reason why some of the people here like Halloween H2O.
CallMeRetorik wrote:Wait, wait . . . you are saying that you don't like H2 because it is too scary? It's a horror movie. What do you expect?
Being set on the same night is one of the greatest concepts of the film. How else were they supposed to capture the fact that Michael survived falling off the balcony? We wanted to know what happened after he fell.
What I'd expect? How about being based on the plain suspense the previous movie had!??
Okay, so how did the film capture that he
survived...a balcony fall?(by setting the movie on the same night)

I really hope you're not referring to me here, are you!? I have not seen the remake of Halloween. I haven't even seen Halloween 4 and 6. I have not either watched H2 all the way through. And I said otherwise!? It's almost like you shouldn't have said anything at all there.

But we do
know it, or don't we!? My opinions
are off!?? Get out of here!
