I watched Child's play last night [Big Grin] Horrors are every other day for me so it's Halloween all year round in this house [Razz] But I think I will make a point to watch a Halloween film on the night this time, maybe Halloween 3. Silver shamrock [Smile]

I never understood why Halloween 3 never seemed to get the credit it deserved, completely underestimated in my book!

It’s a shame that they did not take the franchise into different directions more often instead of being lazy and relying on MM to do the job!

Shine on Silver Shamrock!

Couldn't agree more. I thought it was a bit of a bore to just continuously do Myers films. I think the series would have been so much more interesting if they broke it up a bit with different ideas like the third.

Don't you just hate when someone says "Oh the third is crap, there's no Myers"

BOOOOO [Razz]

Ok let’s expand the original idea a little and list our ideal Halloween movie fest!

Ok I know it’s not perfect but here is my bad boy Halloween movie selection, this is subject to change as there are too many good scary movies and not enough time!

9:00am (1984) Ghostbusters, 105 mins
10:50am (1985) Teen Wolf, 91 mins
12:30pm (1987) Monster Squad, 82 mins
13:55pm (1986) Critters, 82 mins
15:20pm (1986) House, 93 mins
16:55pm (1985) The Return of the Living Dead, 91 mins
18:30pm (1985) Fright Night, 106 mins
20:20pm (1980) The Fog, 89mins
21:50pm (1982) Halloween III: The Season of the Witch, 96mins
23:30pm (1981) The Evil Dead, 85mins
1:00am (1985) Day of the Dead, 102mins
2:45am (SLEEP)

Films that I could not include because they
disturb me greatly are, Hellriaser 1, 2 & Event Horizon!

So think you have a better line up, let’s see it!

Come on guys Halloween is getting closer so let's see that perfect 80’s Halloween movie list!
It would be interesting to see which turn out to be the most popular movie/movies as already FRIGHT NIGHT seems to be leading the pack!

Go Brewster!

Poltergeist 2 was on AMC last night. I forgot how scary that movie is. They have some really good horror movies on AMC at night for monsterfest.

Halloween
Halloween 3
Nightmare on elm street
The twilight zone Movie
And if you are from the uk you may remember this from the early 90s Ghost Watch (it was on Halloween night).
After it aired it was in all the papers and had thousands of people writing in to the bbc.
It scared the *beep* out of me as a kid. If you watch it now its a bit lame but nothing has ever scared me as much as that did

Yeah, I remember that Blake. My mum was sitting there through it saying look they're acting. But as a kid I was totally buying it until right at the very end when the ghost came into the studio lol

Blake..adding 'Ghos****ch' was a stroke of genius.Pretty much summed it up in your description,but I would like to add it was made more than a decade before 'The Blair Witch Project' and was pure gold from auntie beeb.
