Here's a film that was seriously awesome and terrifying all at once.  This was serious S*** for us back in the 80s, and the sequel "Hellbound" was equally intense and gory.  I based my version of Darth Plagueis off Pinhead before the novel came out, and I had put elements of Hellraiser into my Star Wars saga whenever Conradin battled Plagueis and his acolytes (I originally called them cenobites).  Although there is a lot of blood and gore, the mythology behind Pinhead and the puzzlebox is really interesting.  Clive Barker is quite physical with his horror.  This is definitely NOT for the squeamish.



Famous scene from Hellraiser that really introduces Pinhead and what he represents.




A scene from Hellraiser II.  Just as Pinhead influenced my ideas for Plagueis, this scene was a major influence my design for the Sith homeworld back in 2005 when I wrote "There Were Ten".  Again, warning, I find this to be intense stuff.  Clive Barker is not for everyone.

Completing "The Big 3" slashers, John carpenter's Halloween features Michael Myers.  My all time favorite movie in the franchise is Halloween 4, though most of the sequels are not quite as good.  Christopher Lee turned down the Role of Dr. Loomis and later told Carpenter is was the greatest mistake he ever made in his acting career.  Veteran actor Donald Pleasance played the part, making Loomis one of my favorite characters in the series.  Just as Jason Vorhees is iconic as a slasher killer, Michael is a good creepy boogeyman.

Halloween: H20 (1998) was the perfect end to the franchise, wrapping up the saga of Michael Myers and Jamie Lee Curtis came back to play Laurie Strode one more time.  But, the studio did ONE more sequel, "Halloween: Resurrection", the absolute worst film in the series that killed the franchise and showed off the character of Freddy Harriss played by Busta Rhymes, perhaps the absolute worst fictional character of any genre, any franchise, any film anywhere.

I tried to like the Rob Zombie reboot + sequel, really I did.  He's a decent horror director, but he was the wrong choice for Halloween, imo.  His style doesn't fit the Halloween franchise.

Here's Halloween 4, a good suspense horror that left a theater full of rowdy teens silent when I went to see it back in 1988.

Not the first slasher film, but certainly one of the more famous (along with Nightmare on Elm Street and Halloween).  An early Kevin Bacon film :)



I did like this character, Crazy Ralph.  He's the ultimate, one dimensional creepy guy.  He should have been in more sequels :)

Not always a fan of Horror Franchises.  The Original film is usually the best, but then sequels come along and they tend to get worse, until the last movie simply sucks so bad the franchise dies an undignified death.  Personally, I like John Carpenter's Halloween, but I also enjoy Wes Craven's Nightmare on Elm Street.  Both have a series of Sequels that are good and bad in varying degrees.

The first one is unique in the Slasher genre, a killer that gets you when you sleep.  A pedophile janitor burned alive by the parents of Elm street, he comes back as the dream phantom to kill the kids.  Good story, decent special effects, Robert Englund became one of the great Horror movie icons, and Heather Langenkamp did a fantastic job as Heroine Nancy Thompson.  The movie also stars a very young Johnny Depp.



10 years after the original and 5 sequels that got worse and worse, Wes Craven came back and redefined the Nightmare movies with the best, and last, film in the series "New Nightmare" (1994).  Heather came back to play herself in the film, and it was a very excellent way to end the series.
