What Are The Best Halloween Movies?

“You can’t kill the boogeyman,” warned trick-or-treater Tommy Doyle in John Carpenter’s 1978 original horror classic Halloween.

Halloween Ends, the 13th film in the franchise now showing in theaters and available on Peacock, promises an “epic, terrifying conclusion” to the Shape’s 45-year reign of terror over Haddonfield.

The last film in David Gordon Green’s Halloween trilogy, 2022’s Halloween Ends, features Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) fighting Michael Myers (James Jude Courtney) for the final time.

The most frightening aspect of Halloween Ends may be its Rotten Tomatoes rating: the initial reviews released online were harsh, branding the trilogy conclusion a “confounding, convoluted conclusion” and an unfulfilling end to Halloween.

The 13-movie Halloween franchise’s Rotten Tomatoes score improves with the latest movie, but is still “rotten” at 45%. This places it as the fifth-best score for the franchise. The following shows how each of the Halloweenmovies rank according to their Rotten Tomatoes scores:

Halloween (1978): 96%, “Certified Fresh”Halloween (2018): 79%, “Certified Fresh” Halloween H20: 20 Years Later (1998): 52%, RottenHalloween III: Season of the Witch (1982): 47%, RottenHalloween Ends (2022): 45%, RottenHalloween Kills (2021): 39%, RottenHalloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (1988): 33%, RottenHalloween II (1981): 30%, RottenRob Zombie’s Halloween (2007): 27%, RottenRob Zombie’s Halloween II (2009): 23%, RottenHalloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers (1989): 12%, RottenHalloween: Resurrection (2002): 10%, RottenHalloween: The Curse of Michael Myers (1995): 9%, Rotten
