The first Halloween film reinvigorated the horror genre and started a wave of slasher movies that followed by example. While they picked up on the formula of a guy with a mask chasing teens around, the films that came after never matched the foreboding gloom of the 1978 original. There has been a slew of sequels, reimaginings, and reboots of Halloween, some of which are decent and the rest of which are absolutely bonkers.
Regardless of which film in the franchise they worked on, the cast and crew of the Halloween films all have great memories, and they each hold the series in high regard. Even members of the Halloween extended family whose movies weren’t universally loved still think the series as a whole is important.
