Here are all the best TV spooktaculars


The best part of Halloween, aside from candy, scary movies, and sexy costume parties, is that every single TV show in the entire world tries to capitalize on the holiday.

I wish I could say that I was impervious to the capitalization of Halloween media, but I'm not. I love Halloween, and I love Halloween episodes. So do you. Why else would you be here? Anyways, here's a list of the 11 best Halloween episodes of your favorite shows:

Brooklyn 99 S1 E6: "Halloween"

Brooklyn 99 Halloween


Brooklyn 99 has some great Halloween episodes, but nothing beats the original. This one started the annual Halloween Heist to determine The Ultimate Detective/Genius, and all the other seasons' Halloween specials must dwell in its shadow.

Top 10 Michael Myers Kills From The 'Halloween' Series

From the 1978 Original to Both Rob Zombie's Remakes, The Shape has Wracked up Quite the Body Count.

Get trick or treatin' early with this terrifying and gruesome kill list.

Who knew it would be 2018, and we'd still be getting more Michael Myers? The horror icon first splashed across nationwide theaters back in 1978, and he's been pretty damn unstoppable. The bloodthirst for the shapeless figure has (so far) spawned nine sequels, including the Myers-less Halloween III: Season of the Witch, which stars Tom Atkins, and tells an equally-horrifying tale of demonic masks and witchcraft.

In the last 40 years, Myers' path of destruction has resulted in some of the bloodiest and most brutal slayings in any horror franchise. Whether you're talking mid-run entries like Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers or the soft reboot in 1998 called Halloween H20: 20 Years Later, he takes no prisoners. Even within mediocre plots, as found with 2002's Halloween Resurrection, Myers pretty much has free reign to do whatever he wants, as long as there's plenty of gore, screams, and chills. His instrument of choice is often the classic butcher's knife, but he can get quite inventive at times.

David Gordon Green's vision of The Shape, a film simply called Halloween, a direct sequel to John Carpenter's 1978 original film (of the same name), hits theaters October 19, and it promises to be wholly thrilling and terrifying. With Scream Queen royalty returning, that is, Jamie Lee Curtis, reprising her role as Laurie Strode, the upcoming slasher installment boasts a load of fresh faces, including Andi Matichak, who is set to portray Laurie's granddaughter Allyson.

Ahead of the new movie, we've compiled our picks for Top 10 Michael Myers Kills from the entire run of the franchise (so far). Does your favorites make the cut? Let us know in the comments!

Bob (1978's Halloween)


As any die-hard fan will know, the original killer flick has very little blood in it. But there are more than a few bone-chilling pay-offs, including Bob's now-iconic demise. As the movie enters its third act, the cast of horny teenagers begin to bite the dust. When Bob, who just finished having sex with Laurie's close friend Linda, goes down for a beer, he uncovers something he never could have bargained for. Slice and dice, anyone?!
