Voting Rules
Vote up Michael Myers's most memorable murders.

Since 1978 Michael Myers has been killing teenagers, doctors, police officers, and townies with equal disregard. Anyone who gets in his way - regardless of age, race, or creed - gets dispatched in some magnificent fashion.

In case you haven't been counting, there are a lot of Halloween movie murders. Michael's clocked at least 70 confirmed kills, but it’s honestly hard to tell in some of the huge group murder scenes he finds himself in during later films. 

The best kills in Halloween are also the most memorable. The garden claws through the face, the exploding heads, the hot tubs; those are the kills to remember. 

Do you have a favorite insane murder from the Halloween franchise? Perhaps it involves one of the many babysitters whom Laurie Strode has befriended. Or maybe you prefer the work of Rob Zombie and his brutal, yet beautiful death scenes. Whatever your taste, there’s a Michael Myers kill waiting just for you.
