We just made our 11 year old watch Halloween for the first time and he thought it was stupid.  Mocked it the whole way through .  Frickin kids.

The kid is right, it was pretty dumb. Its claim to fame is first, not best.

The original "Piranha" movie.

I don't if you would call it a horror movie or not but if you were a teenager tripping your brains out on mushrooms it would probably leave quite an impression.

Favorite horror movie? Probably a toss up between Bruce campbell's Army of Darkness or nightmare on elm street 3: dream warriors.

Most horrific favorite? Cujo or the Aliens series.

Runners up would be: Shawn of the Dead, Zombieland, and Pan's labyrinth.
army of darkness really?  I found the whole Evil Dead trilogy quite lame. And that one was the worst.

It's so campy, I know. But with that movie, it really isn't the point. Bruce was a great overly exaggerated actor, and up until that point horror movies weren't "funny." They were dry and boring. That series may have created the funny-horror genre. Out of all campy-like horror movies, what would you say beats it to this day? Wish master, maybe. I mean, I did throw in cujo or aliens as more of a "horror" type horror flick. There are different kinds of horror flicks after all. 

Hellraiser was also a good one, but it was ruined by too much talking, dry acting, and basically stagnate film time. Sometimes, campy is a good thing.

But I understand how you feel. I feel the same way about the Highlander movies.

Naismith was right about Revis. Everyone else is a dummy.

What a coincidence!  Our 11 year old just watched Halloween for the first time as well.

She didn't mock it but she thought Part 2 was better than the first one.

Her father tends to agree.   :)

If memory serves me correctly, wasn't that the one about witches.

I thought it was weird especially coming off Halloween 2, which IMO was great!

Oddly it was called Season of the witch but it was about Halloween masks wi some sort of mind control devices and .... Well the overall level of suck makes it hard for me to recall anything else. Maybe witches made the mind control devices.

Watched Cinema Snob's review of that one, it does look like a great movie for those who appreciate the camp and bad acting of the Friday franchise. :)

From what I remember it was started by this crazy Pagan Irish guy who wanted to bring Halloween back to it's evil origins through child sacrifice. Again, I thought it was okay as a stand alone film. Seeing children get eaten by bug masks is pretty disturbing, which was obviously the intention. On the other hand...It's pretty silly.

Favorite horror genre is probably the classic Universal monsters of the 30s to the 50s, my favorite obviously being The Wolf Man. Any other Wolf Man or Wolfman (Wolfman=remake, Wolf Man=original) fans out there on da boards? Also love The Mummy from 1933 and 1959, who unlike The Wolf Man did NOT get an intelligent, deep or even decent remake.
