Halloween II (1981)

I was 5 years old, my uncle rented it from the video store and was making a copy for himself and My parents lol as many people used to do in the 80’s…..all of us cousins headed down to the Basement and watched it for the first time …..it absolutely Terrified me to the core and from then on I was completely Obsessed with Michael Myers horror and Halloween….

I remember growing up from then on whenever we were all together in the basement someone would sneak up to the top of the stairs shut off the lights and shout the Boogeyman is here!!
Lol…..we would all scream and trample over each other running up the stairs.

Hmm... Actually I can't really remember what my first was. The more I think about it, it was probably Gremlins. The first full-fledged horror movie I watched all the way through was either Friday the 13th P5 or Halloween 4... Can't recall which though.

Of course Godzilla counts! Monster movies were the original sub-genre of Horror after all, lol. You can argue about the kid-centered sequels, but the original from 1954 was a straight up horror movie... Especially when you consider that film was made not even a decade after the atomic bomb was dropped and was created in part as an allegory for the bomb and the threat of nuclear war. Godzilla was definitely intended to straight up scare the shit out of people.

I've always said, the older these horror movies get the more you have to take into consideration the timeframe they were made to understand what truly made them scary at the time. What might seem tame or cheesy to us now were down right terrifying in the environment they were released.

Mine was Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare. I was 11 or 12 so I actually thought this was going to be the final Freddy movie. I hadn’t seen Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter or even knew of movies being called Final but not being the last. I really enjoyed the movie since it was my first horror movie and I still enjoy it.

Ooooh I agree! And if so my first monster flick was most definitely Godzilla, and my first slasher film was Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood!

To be fair, Freddy's Dead was technically the last film in the main series. New Nightmare was it's own thing in it's own pocket universe, the remake is in it's own continuity, and then there's the crossover... Freddy vs. Jason is the only grey area, whether or not fans personally want to include it as part of the main series. At the very least, Freddy's Dead was the closest of these faux final chapters to actually ending the series. The Final Nightmare is a very cartoony, but I still enjoy it, much more than 4 or 5 which do absolutely nothing for me.

I have a Love Hate relationship with the Nightmare movies….

I love the first 3 And Cravens New Nightmare, and I Like 4, But can’t really stand the others.

I like some aspects of 5 like his Mother’s character and origin of the Son of a Hundreds Maniacs from The Dream child but the Franchise starting at 4 really gets goofy from this point…..culminating with the Goofiest Freddy in Freddy’s Dead.

I actually prefer the Remake over Dream Master, Dream Child, and Freddy’s Dead.

Dream Masters was my favorite. That film struck the perfect balance between making Freddy a more comedic character while still keeping him scary, characters you actually cared about, and some great foreshadowing on how these poor kids were going to meet their ends. As soon as Jennifer mentions how she wants to go to Hollywood and become a movie star, you know they were setting up perhaps the most iconic kill in the entire series. I also blame Dream Warriors for the steep regression in the series, since the preceding films tried to emulate what worked in that film without seeming to understand what made them work in the first place. 20 minutes into Part 4, all the characters you cared about from P3 are dead replaced by far lest interesting characters, Freddy completes his transition to a stand-up comedian, and that foreshowing that worked in P3 quickly became tropey and rather lame... The kid who liked to draw comics possibly being the worst. I kind of respect that 6 kind of said screw it and completely committed to the cartoony caricature the series had become, where 4 & 5 were still trying to pretend they should be taken seriously.
