I don't believe I've ever ranked them by preference here as that tends to fluctuate. I think the only relative constant has been the 1978 film as number one. Other films have shifted, sometimes rather notably, depending on what cuts are available or as more films are released. Things like that. Currently, this one is near the middle for me in terms of preference.

As much as I like Halloween 3 I do not see it as a mainline entry to the franchise,it's more like a fun diversion.

Confession: I’ve never cared for the original. I watch it every year in the vain hope that I’ll “get it,” but I never do. I feel the same about most of Carpenter’s work actually, but that’s a discussion for another time. As a result, I simply think that I’m not the target audience for this. It’s back-to-basics: it’s very lean, ends more or less exactly when it should, and has a lot of raw energy. JLC is awesome as the James Cameron-style Warrior Woman, Carpenter’s score is nicely minimalist, and it has a lot of fun homages to the original. There’s no question that it’s good at what it does, I just think that I’m not who this is for. And that’s fine. Lots of people don’t like Pacific Rim; Pacific Rim isn’t for them. It’s for me, a kaiju fanboy. This is for Halloween fans. And that’s fine.

Energy and splatter aside, the thematic stuff is pretty minor, but the , that’s even more true of the original, so that’s not a big deal. It’s a good slasher reboot, and genuine “40 years later” sequel.

Ranking Halloween movies is easy for me. There are ONLY three that matter and one of them has nothing to do with the Myers storyline.

Halloween, 1978: 4.5/5
Halloween 3, season of the witch: 3/5(yeah it’s campy and somewhat cheesy but it’s fun)
Halloween, 2018: 3/5

The rest are all ZEROES and don’t exist in my world.

Worst list I have seen. No way Ressurection should be above RZ. Or even Halloween 5. (Average as it was)

I know that it is received wisdom to put Resurrection last but we don't all have to be part of the Halloween hive-mind.

I find Halloween 5 (a betrayal of the acceptable Halloween 4) and the RZ remake and sequel pretty much unwatchable. I haven't been a fan of Rob Zombie's movies in general and I can't think of many film-makers less suited to helm a Halloween remake.

The only thing which makes Resurrection a point of interest is the participation of Jamie Lee Curtis. The prologue is a decent Halloween short, the rest of the movie is awful, though sometimes hilariously so.

I've been a fan of the original Halloween ever since it was first released, I saw it on the day it came out. None of the sequels even comes close. I also fell in love a little with Laurie Strode, she was always who the series was about for me.

As to my favourite sequel, while H20 is far from perfect, I prefer what they did with her character to the latest Halloween sequel. I though re-conceiving her as a one-dimensional Sarah Connor clone who was solely defined by her encounter with Michael Myers, was boring fan-service. H20 imagined her as a far more rounded character and it gave Curtis a better role.

Halloween 3 is a decent stand alone 80s scifi horror flick, Halloween 2 looks and feels like vintage Carpenter even if the film is far more coarse than the original, doing nothing with the characters. Halloween 4 is an above average 80s slasher and the last of the sequels I kinda like.

No hive mind here. I have RZís efforts above H5, H6, H20 and resurrection.

Sorry about my post, when I thought about it, it was a bit passive-aggressive.

H2O is the most frustrating entry to rank. It’s really a very good sequel, except for the mask situation. You have to get the mask right in a Halloween movie. And H2O somehow managed to turn Michael’s mask into a complete joke.

...it’s a shame.

It's nothing to do with a hive mind,Resurrection is rubbish even by Halloween sequel standards.

Where did I disagree that it’s rubbish ? I just don’t see what the point is in bickering over the bottom placements of four films which all are pretty terrible. I gave a reason why I think that film has one saving grace, which puts them above the other three for me.

BTW, I just saw that you didn’t place it last either, so what’s your point ?
