Halloween: 25 Years of Terror: Does exactly what it says on the tin
29 October 2017 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Recently I binge watched all of the Friday 13th movies I hadn't seen (Which was most) followed by the documentaries. I always found them underwhelming but watchable.

Halloween however I've never liked, not a single one of the entries did anything for me at all so what chance did a documentary stand? Crystal Lake Memories was the pinnacle of Friday 13th documentaries standing at 5hrs and was a fantastic piece of work. 25 Years Of Terror emulates that but on a smaller scale.

It covers the first 8 movies, gives you a small background on each before moving onto the next so it might not enlighten you as much as you'd hope.

With backstage footage, horror-con access and more there is certainly plenty of material for fans but nothing as ground breaking as they did for Friday 13th.

Essentially viewing for fans? Not really, but it's harmless enough if only for the Danielle Harris interviews.

The Good:

Danielle Harris

Some interesting background on each film

The Bad:

PJ Soles narration is awful

Some of the fan videos are cringe inducing

Things I Learnt From This Documentary:

Halloween fans are lunatics

Michael Myers was a lot funnier as Austin Powers
