    Seen all of them... had a coin-toss tournament to decide which to pick.

    This is an opinion that should be much more common. A crazy irish cult out to murder American children on Halloween by squashing their puny skulls.

    This guy was amazing as well

    I'd like to remind you that Jason fought Carrie at one point.

    The third one might be better... despite how absolutely idiotically stupid Lagenkamp's character ends.

    Never seen the Hellraiser sequels.

    Well since Friday the 13th has been mathematically eliminated from competition, does anyone want to watch and talk about it tomorrow as a separate bonus SMC discussion?

    Since tomorrow is Friday the 13th after all...

    Late me think on that.

    In the meantime, we have a situation.

    RabidJesus voted in this poll but has since quit the Club. I'm trying to figure out if we should still count his vote since he had not yet resigned when the vote was cast.

    What does everyone think about this?

    Doesn't matter to me one way or another. Although @RabidJesus thought he was going to run out the back door when I wasn't looking.

    I don't see it to be a problem, makes the last vote more interesting. He voted when he was still a member, and has since bailed on the club and all we stood for - I say count it for now.

    Indeed, that's probably the easiest way to go about it. Just remember that it's a traitorous vote.

    lol at Halloween III. That's a sequel in name only. But count it if you must. Season of the witch indeed.

    Voted then quit? What is this sabotage?!

    Nail him up!



    But yeah, I’m fine with the vote counting.

    Always working the devil's mischief, are we Caveat?

    Unlike the rest of the world, Halloween has always been more a middling-level Carpenter movie for me.

    Look @shadow_priest_x , we can have a vote off if you want to remove the vote. As I said before, it doesn't matter to me one way or another. If I don't care and you don't care then we are already 20% of the club that doesn't care if the vote is removed.

    What's more interesting to me is that @europe1 views Halloween as "middling-level" but voted for it.

    What's done is done at this point. No point in trying to backtrack now.

    I think I'm going to also watch Hellraiser anyway though.

    That is indeed interesting. I didn't catch that.

    Since I've seen every film -- I held an epic, PPV-broadcasted coin-toss tournament between all the contestants to see who would get my vote.

    And a middling-effort from Carpenter is still damn good in comparison to most human directors.
