Halloween: 25 Years of Terror (2006)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

An all too short but still entertaining documentary that tries to take a look at the entire run of HALLOWEEN movies. Just about everyone you could hope for shows up in interviews but when you're trying to cram all of these films into 83-minutes obviously you're not going to be able to give each film a lot of respect or detail. The first eight movies are looked at with interviews from a wide range of people from the best known in the series to those who just played small parts. Some of those interviewed include Moustapha Akkad, John Carpenter, Dean Cundy, Bianca Kajlich, Nick Castle, Rob Zombie, Tom Atkins, Danielle Harris, Edgar Wright, Rick Rosenthal, Clive Barker, Nancy Loomis and many, many others. Again, covering so much ground in such a short time is impossible but I still think fans will enjoy this. While it doesn't go into any great detail I do think it offers up enough good interviews to make it worth viewing. It also doesn't hurt that so many cast members return for the interviews and we get some honest remarks by producer Akkad who admits to certain mistakes made in the series. This includes rushing HALLOWEEN 5 into theaters and there's also talk about the issues surrounding HALLOWEEN: THE CURSE OF MICHAEL MYERS and how things got so messed up. We even hear about the various problems with the mask on HALLOWEEN: H20 and why more than four were used. Some of the best moments deal with the fans of the series as we see some wild ones, weird ones and some that are just downright creepy. This here leads to a discussion with some of the actresses talk about being stalked by fans and there's talk about what impact horror films and violence has on the public. The documentary also does a very good job at explaining each film in its limited time so those that aren't familiar with it will be able to watch this and see what all the fuss is about.
