John Carpenter’s eerie music just stole the show for pure horror value and earns the #1 slot. I think that’s a staple for both new and veteran horror fans alike to watch in/around Halloween every year.

Interestingly, at the opposite end — way deep at the bottom of the list — is the literally unwatchable (and the only reason I suffered through watching it again was because it was part of Joe Bob’s Shudder special) Halloween 5. Yikes, that is one of the trashiest horror sequels in an iconic franchise ever made with its only saving grace being Donald Pleasence
