Halloween and Black Christmas are in my top five horror movies, alongside Carrie, Nightbreed and Event Horizon.

From a budget of $300,000, the film went on to gross $47 million at the US box office. In 2008, takings that would be the equivalent of $150 million, making 'Halloween' one of the most successful independent films of all time.

Much to the dismay of Roger Ebert. :P

Did "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" pass "Halloween?"  I think it's an independent film too yet produced by a few Hollywood Stars?

I confess, I don’t know.

They should combine the two movies.

The original script, titled "The Babysitter Murders", had the events take place over the space of several days. It was a budgetary decision to change the script to have everything happen on the same day (doing this reduced the number of costume changes and locations required) and it was decided that Halloween, the scariest night of the year, was the perfect night for this to happen.

Correct me if I'm wrong but this should be the only franchise where the first two movies take place during a 48 hour period...apart from the introduction scenes.

Hmm, the only franchise?

Let me put my thinking cap on, but I would guess that you’re right!
