Finished watching, rating and reviewing the last of Shudder’s 31 Days of Halloween Horror View Guide. Here are links to all reviews and ranked listing of all the movies including the three that were part of the Joe Bob Briggs Halloween Hootenanny event on October 25, 2019 (three Halloween movies, the original John Carpenter masterpiece plus Halloween 4 and Halloween 5). The list below intentionally excludes the Shudder Creepshow TV series, which I’ve reviewed and rated all of those in a separate TV REVIEW post (Season 1 posted here).

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
Am a bit behind getting started viewing the 2019 October Shudder 31 Days of Halloween Viewing Guide movies. A small few of them I’ve already seen, so that will help out, but will probably rewatch those anyway. Sharing here so others reading can follow and participate as well, if you like. It is fun to watch movies on a recommended watchlist, so I wanted to get this posted ASAP.
As of this writing, I’ve watched, rated and reviewed (click title to read full review) the following (from oldest to newest, not ranked):
