Well, we've made it through another monstrous match-up guys, and the fun is only beginning. Smooth Vamp Daddy Jerry Dandridge from Fright Night matches his undead might against that Michael Myers kid with an appetite for homicide from Haddonfield and Halloween. Silent and deadly meets up with Suave and bloodthirsty in this, the last match of this series.

Fright Night is a very pleasant little vampire film. Halloween is a masterpiece of the genre. Therein lies the difference.

Halloween is probably one of the top ten horror films ever. (That gives me an idea for a list - I'm one to talk - I haven't even done my top ten of last year yet.) Soon.

Really, this is a no-brainer... Halloween. Halloween is horror royalty while Fright Night is like Halloween's father's brother's nephew's cousin's former roommate.

John Carpenter is simply a much better director than Tom Holland. Halloween is one of the best Horror films of all-time, not saying Fright Night isn't a good Horror film, but Michael Myers offered something to a budding genre, the Slasher film, that hadn't really ever been seen before in the form of a masked, remorseless killer that is seemingly unstoppable. Halloween is the blueprint for all slasher films that have come after, and is often imitated but never duplicated. On the other hand, Pimp Vampires and Vampiresses have been around many a year and there isn't a whole lot more to offer to that particular genre. Sad, but true.

Halloween it is! I love Fright Night, but as has already been stated, Halloween is a horror masterpiece. Fright Night is much more light-hearted fare.

But you don't even like Fright Night at all! You're doing that just to be a jerk. I think it's because you're bitter that another year came and went and Chinese Democracy didn't come out. :p

I doubt it's going to matter in the end. The posting is still young and we have several days yet before the end of its run. I'm 100% positive whos blood caked arm I'll be raising in victory next weekend. :ninja:

Ya think? I'm sure that a lot of folks think that when Superbowl time rolls around and it's obvious that one team is going to kick the others ass even before the teams take the field. This is sort of like that, only on a more miniscule scale. Both movies knocked out some stiff competition, but in the end, the finals are most always totally one-sided and this is the match that proves that point perfectly.

Halloween pulls all stops out with a sound defeat over Fright Night. This John Carpenter film is the champion in our second of contests and moves onto the next round.

The next round?

Yep. The next round...
