The most iconic movie to watch every Halloween is, well, Halloween!

The original movie in the franchise was released in 1978. Written and directed by John Carpenter and starring Jamie Lee Curtis, it told the story of a young teenager and her friends who are mercilessly stalked by an unstoppable force - a maniac who would eventually be known as Michael Myers.

It is one of the most profitable horror franchises in history, though that is partly due to the fact that no less than 13 movies have been produced.

Naturally, there are definite highs and lows in the series.

It has been rebooted twice, with Rob Zombie's Halloween in 2007 and David Gordon Green's Halloween in 2018.

Within our MovieMeter community, there are naturally various Halloween movies that have received hugely positive responses - and some with negative responses.

It is no surprise to see that the original Halloween is the highest-rated movie in the franchise, with Halloween II in second place.

Interestingly, it is the two Halloween reboot movies that come in third and fourth. Rounding out the top five is Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers.

According to our community, the worst movies in the franchise are Halloween III: Season of the Witch and Halloween Resurrection.
