Favorite Steve Miner Film

The thread that included Raimi among other directors inspired me to ask about another horror director's works who's been involved since the beginning(he helped work on the original Last House On The Left after all).

What film directed by Steve Miner is the best? And why?

As much as I love the Friday The 13th movies he worked on(among the most frightening too) and how much fun House is(I still need to rewatch this), I gotta go with Warlock.

So many memorable scenes and definitely one of the better time travel flicks out there. A god vs. devil tale that even an atheist can enjoy.

H20 got my vote. I also enjoyed Forever Young and Lake Placid.

As a kid I enjoyed My Father the Hero and Big Bully. Don't know if I would still like them now though since I haven't seen them since.

I voted House because I like the TV show more than any of these options

And I voted for Warlock because I think the 1959 Western of the same name is superior to any of these movies.

House is actually pretty fun though. You can't go wrong with Norm from Cheers.

His television work is far superior to his movie work. He directed several episodes of Dawson's Creek, The Wonder Years and one episode each of Jake 2.0 and Karen Sisco, two terrific shows that sadly only lasted one season.

This probably would have been my 2nd pick. At it's scariest, it's unbeatable on the scary scale with all the other F13th's(though Pt.2 and the last half hour of Pt. 1 come close).

Thanks for being one of the very few who didn't shit on this thread.

Is what I get for making a thread about a non-pretentious director.

I'm not a thread-basher HaHaHa! H2O is one of the best horror sequels ever, and Parts 2 & 3 of F13 were solid as well, FOREVER YOUNG was okay. Jamie Lee Curtis personally sought out Miner to direct H2O when John Carpenter expressed his disinterest in revisiting his filmmaking past...while neither of them are in the same league as Hitchcock (despite fans constantly comparing Carpenter & Brian DePalma's work to Hitch's...HALLOWEEN & CARRIE are as close as they'll ever get!). I've been criticized in the past for creating BEST OF threads honoring obscure, underrated actors so you're not alone on this one dude!

I would say Halloween H20. It's been a while since I've seen it, but I remember it being a pretty effective horror film. It's certainly the best of the Halloween sequels, by a long shot.

Friday 2 and 3 are awesome sequels. 3 Being my favorite sequel.

H20 gets A LOT of flack from the fans but it's the only sequel after 2 that is any good.

Lake Placid is funny as hell.

If you can forgive the absurdity of Day of the Dead, and forget it's called Day of the Dead, it's a fun, over the top time waster.
