But he's pointing out other slasher flicks copied the gory body count from Friday the 13th. Even Halloween II was re-edited for the same reason.

If anyone should be complaining, it should be Mario Bava fans.

QFT

Michael Myers even became near enough a Jason clone in 'Halloween 4' as well.

This is true.

The first four Fridays, especially the first two owe a lot to A Bay Of Blood

Friday borrowed the premise sure, but Halloween ended up copying the brutality of all the Friday films. The first Halloween film had no gore at all.

I was thinking Halloween 6 specifically (sans driving)- I should've specified.

Halloween didn't need gore, tits, and sex to make it a worthy movie...but FT13th came along and stole the 'basis' of Halloween and added to it's movie what Halloween lacked, and audiences responded. So how could Halloween compete with that? They too had to step up their game. You can't blame them for that.

Bullshit. If other movies like Poltergeist and Paranormal Activity don't need extreme gore to scare people then neither did Halloween. It's called suspense, and the first Halloween almost made it an art form. Hell, even recent movies like The Strangers proved that slashers can still be effective without heavy use of blood and gore. Putting more blood and gore in a halloween movie wasn't "stepping up their game". It was relying more on cheap thrills rather than trying to make a great atmospheric movie.

Exactly. But Friday the 13th did it from the start, and they had effects work miles better than any Halloween movie.
