This brilliantly packaged box-set contains the first 8 Halloween movies, all the movies come with a range a good extra features, but the movies are a mixed bag, ranging from absolute classic, to just absolutely pathetic !
Listed below is the ratings for the movies individually.
The best slasher movie of all time, and hardly a drop of blood spilled. This is just brilliantly sustained tension.
HALLOWEEN 2 1981
This all happens on the same night as the first, but there is allot more blood. A very good sequel, but the original is still far better.
HALLOWEEN 3 SEASON OF THE WITCH 1982
No Michael, nothing to do with parts 1 and two.
It runs like a very silly Twilight Zone episode.
With a silly story about a evil toy maker and some masks.
HALLOWEEN 4 1988
This is more like it, Micheal is back !
More of the same as parts one and two, but now feels very familiar and un-original. The film is livened up by a excellent roof top sequence !
HALLOWEEN 5 1989
A very shabby addition, feels very tired and boreing.
Again livened up by a pretty good lift shaf sequence.
HALLOWEEN 6 1995
Pooly directed, poorly edited, makes little sense.
The deaths are stupid and over the top. The worst of the series, pathetic !
HALLOWEEN H20 1998
This at times comes very close to the original, the tension is built up and it's alwAys good to see Jamie Lee Curtis back in her ground breaking role. A excellent slasher !
HALLOWEEN RESURRECTION 2003
A massive step back in quality, Halloween crossed with big brother. Poor acting, boreing characters and very few shocks !
This is a box-set for completist's, so if you a a casual viewer of this series, buy the ones you like individually.
This collection may be a mixed bag of quality, but when the films are good they out class most of any other slasher series, and out-shine all the Friday the 13th's.
The main down side to this collection is that it is now outdated as it does not contain the superb 2007 Rob Zombie remake. No doubt there will be a nine movie box-set to be released soon, and it might be just as well holding onto your cash for that to be released.
