A movie doesn't have to have A LOT of gore to be good. Halloween virtually has none. And I voted for Halloween it is the better movie. As Jeremy said without Halloween there would be no Friday the 13th. And without Friday the 13th we would not have a chain reaction of memorable slasher movies from the early to mid 80s.
Another reason I voted for Halloween is it used such simple techniques with such a low budget to be a fantastic movie. I mean the movie was suppose to be called "Babysitter murders" originally but got turned in to this. Fantastic musical score that people stll recognize to this day (like the Psycho theme). Harry Manfredini is aweasome as always but I have to give kudos to the little independant movie that made my favorite horror franchise give birth!
Trueee. But in cases with a really low budget the affects would look pretty bad unless you got a Tom Savini doing them for the first one. I have no clue who did them for part 2. I guess it's just personal preference. I have seen some prety good low blood count slashers Not that I don't mind high blood counts!
My two favorite slashers of all time. I go back and forth all the time on these movies. They both have the distinction of actually being able to scare me and not much does. I can go on and on about my love for these 2 movies. Today it's too close to call.

I told the others, they didn't believe me. You're all doomed. You're all doomed.
You let him drown. You never paid any attention. Look what you did to him. Look what you did to him.
