Just started watching the Halloween reboot and there's just something about Michael Myers that gets you pumped like no other slasher villain. Jason was a ripoff, Freddie talks too much, Leatherface was a prototype, the Scream guy was never scary, but just starting a Halloween movie gets you immediately in the mood to see Michael Myers be hopefully the perfect version of himself. God I hope this movie doesn't suck.

Alright slasher movies are already the most seriously overrated form of horror movie. Even the best movies tend to be bland cheese fests. Only the first Halloween and maybe the first Nightmare on Elm Street hold up. But modern day digital cinematography ruins absolutely everything about slasher movies that was even good in the first place. The blurry OG fuzziness of 70s and 80s horror movies is necessary just to make slasher movies even watchable tbh. It's simply a dead genre that only has legs for deconstruction movies or gore porn.

So yeah 2018 Halloween sucks.

have you seen Black Christmas from 1974

The Gore Gore Girls from 1972 is one of my favorites but I dunno if you'd think it was good, seems like exploitation isn't what you're all about

2018 Halloween was great if you like slasher movies. Candyman is the best one though.

Yeah I remember Black Christmas being good but it doesn't really have the same problems as your average slasher movie. And I love exploitation. Bland exploitation can suck it though. Slasher movies tend to be pretty bland.

Candyman's OK but it has that 90's horror boring quality that's hard to define.

And this to me is the coolest slasher kill. It's low key as ****, but the dude gets lifted off of his feet, stabbed and planted into the wall, and then Michael Myers just kind of looks at his handiwork. That tilt of the head is everything that all the movies trying to be Halloween didn't have. It's not about the death. It's about the killer caring about the death. That is what elevates the scene from horror movie kill to just being kinda ****ing wrong.

There's a reason why it's a classic while I don't think Jason ever had a true classic. I don't think there's many Friday films I actually enjoy outside of Jason Takes Manhattan for the silliness of it. I liked the first and third Freddy films and I think New Nightmare was a pretty cool take too but the rest were mostly trash. I liked Freddy Vs Jason contrary to how hated that movie seems to be. Candyman is may all time favorite though. There's just a rawness to it that you don't really get from most slasher films which end up becoming really cartoon with their kills.

Halloween is up there but how can you not love when Leatherface sticks that one girl on the hook and butchers her boyfriend in front of her while she bleeds out.

I think he considers Texas Chainsaw Massacre as a whole different beast from the slasher genre made in Halloween's image.
