Michael Myers Halloween

In our inaugural year for Anatomy of Fear, we couldn’t NOT share our thoughts about one of the most important franchises in horror history. So where do we fall on these rankings? Alan’s Ranking Most of the films in this franchise I hadn’t seen in their entirety until a few weeks ago. The original I’ve seen a bunch of times, but the rest not so much. So take my opinion as that of someone that does not have the rose colored glasses of nostalgia to…Continue Reading “Alan and Brandon’s Obligatory Ranking of Halloween Franchise”
