The final Halloween of the original run of movies was brought out in 2002.
It carried on where H20 left off and devised a whole new way to terrorize youngsters with the iconic Michael Myers returning once more when we thought we’d finally seen the back of him.
Jamie Lee Curtis returned to reprise her role of Laurie Strode but the film was mainly hit with negative reviews.
As this ended up being the goodbye to Myers did it do the series justice?

Halloween got rebooted and it was really popular and suddenly reboots of Slasher films became a thing.
In 2009 Jason got the reboot treatment.
Unlike most of the remakes Friday the 13th’s didn’t bother with a hard reboot, it didn’t bother to reintroduce the character it just was another Jason movie. The only thing the reboot did was take away the problem of explaining why Jason isn’t a metal monster after Jason X, making it fit between Freddy vs Jason and Jason X or whatever. It turned back time and gave us a new human Jason who did… Just about everything that Jason did do anyway.
The final Friday the 13th film was also unpopular with critics but so was the rebooted Nightmare on Elm Street and no one on this site agrees with that.

In 2003 the event all horror fans were waiting for happened. After Freddy pulled Jason to hell in 1993 we finally got to see what it was that Freddy did to him. The most charismatic Slasher killer meets possibly the most boring Slasher Monster.
You go into the movie hoping for a epic showdown between these two icons. In actuality you get a much more complex story, for one of them the story of survival for the other… The same old stomping around killing people. The Friday franchise gets mixed into the much more complex story driven world of the Nightmare series and everyone’s Nightmares come to life…
In more ways then one.
Who cares about Jason though when we have FREDDY!!!
