    Is The Exorcist a movie about possession? Is Alien a sci-fi horror? Is The Birds about killer birds? Is The Texas Chainsaw Massacre about a bunch of chainsaws being disassembled? Have I lost myself in this thread asking a really dumb question?

    On the surface, yes. But no.

    What has that to do with Halloween being a slasher or not?


    Is The Birds about killer birds?
    On the surface, yes. But no.

    Is The Texas Chainsaw Massacre about a bunch of chainsaws being disassembled?
    I don't remember any chainsaw disassembling in the movie, but you're welcome to argue your point.

    Have I lost myself in this thread asking a really dumb question?[/QUOTE]

    Why is it a dumb question?

    It's a dumb question because everyone considers Halloween not only a slasher flick but one of if not the best one. Why do you believe otherwise?


    Edit...Having read through your entertaining and frustrating posts in the, "It Follows," thread I realize it's probably useless to try and get you to see the FACT that "Halloween," is unquestionably a Slasher flick. I think a more interesting topic for debate that actually has a valid argument for both sides is whether or not "Psycho," is a Slasher flick.

    So your justification is "everyone believes it". If 'everyone believes it' then it must be true. You unquestionably and automatically consider this as fact. What if everyone believed that the moon was made of cheese? What if everyone believed the earth was flat? That's right, truth is based on popular opinion. According to you. I suppose it is easier to just accept that.

    I'm saying when something like the question you asked has such an obvious answer that no one but yourself attempts to debate otherwise, then you need to rethink your views. You have said nothing that has proved whatever point your trying to make, you called the movie the slasher that influenced f13 and then immediately said it wasn't a slasher. You're not making any sense man, and you're just coming off like an ass to everyone but you.

    This is a silly thread that certainly does not belong on a fine message board like UHM. Not only should it be closed but deleted and forgotten about forever.

    So you accept it as being self-evident? I'd like to know your thought processes that lead you to make that conclusion. Explained in detail, please.

    you called the movie the slasher that influenced f13 and then immediately said it wasn't a slasher
    Then immediately after that I said that I saw elephants dancing in space.

    Life-long horror fan comes to UHM to be with his/her bretheren. See's thread questioning Halloween being a slasher flick. Immediately leaves, clears cache and cookies to destroy all evidence of ever being here. Makes fun of us on other truly shitty Horror Movie Message Boards. :2far:

    This started off quite reasonably, until all the trolls came out of the woodwork and blew everything out of proportion. It was suggested by FM that I make a new thread, so I did. Now, Macready, you call this an embarassment? The real embarassment is the high level trolling that takes place if someone expresses an opinion. If that's the case, I have a good site for you, it's called Bloody Disgusting.. you'll fit right in.

    Just to placate you... I feel like the general consensus is that Halloween is a slasher film. So it is your job to convince us to change our opinion. So what basis do you use to support your claim?
