    I used to really like the movie Halloween and even some of it's early sequels... Late grade school, Jr High, High, etc... Recently I viewed the movie again and was horribly bored by it... I also found the acting to be atrocious... Linda especially could not die soon enough...

    It's not that I dont like horror... I am a casual horror fan...

    I just dont remember the movie being so annoying and boring... So, whats wrong here??? Did I watch the movie at a wrong time??? Have I just lost my liking for it??? What???

    Has anyone else had a similar experience with this movie or another movie???

    Sounds like you're turning into a pirate too.

    I think, Ryan, only you can answer those questions.

    Ryan,
    I agree with you about HALLOWEEN. I saw it when it was new in the theater, and I loved it. Being 12, it was the second scariest thing I ever saw(THE EXORCIST was, and remains, #1 in the fright department). I watched it many times over the years, and always enjoyed it. But when I got the DVD and saw it in widescreen for the first time since the original release, I saw it in a new light. I don't think it's a bad film on a technical level; most of the acting is great, the score is superb, it's very suspenseful. But what bothered me was how cruelly Carpenter treats his characters. I couldn't get over how bad this film made me feel when I watched it last, and I promptly sold my DVD.

    I would like to give it another chance because of all the good qualities it has. But I'm not in any hurry.
