Update: Here’s who is directing the next Halloween!

After years of rumors and speculation, Dimension Films is officially casting Halloween Returns, which will bring Michael Myers back to the big screen once again.

A new generation of victims are set to emerge with this new Halloween remake, writes Moviehole, who broke the news this morning.

Titled Halloween Returns, the new project will be a standalone film set to reintroduce audiences to Michael Myers years after his initial rampage.

Halloween Returns will pit a new group of Haddonfield youngsters against Myers. The now 18-year-old child of one of Myers’ victims plays a central role along with the child of a cop whose long been obsessed with Myers’ case, even putting it before his own daughter.

Myers is now on death row and the two kids with their own personal vendettas against the killer sneak in to watch his execution. But when things go awry and Myers escapes, the pair, along with their friends, find themselves in the firing line.

It sort of sounds inspired by Wes Craven’s classic Shocker (below), no?

As previously reported, Halloween Returns will not be in 3-D nor follow in the footsteps of Rob Zombie’s remake to John Carpenter’s 1979 masterpiece, Halloween.

Called a “recalibration” back in February, the next Halloween is penned by Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, the duo behind various Saw sequels, as well as Pacific Rim, Feast, The Collector and The Collection.

  • Rocco Paone

    So, this is where we officially bring back Laurie Strode?

    Jamie Lee Curtis, are you seeing this?

    • DelcoNick

      Guess it depends on whether they go off all the sequels or not since they killed off Laurie in that god awful Halloween Resurrection with Busta Rhymes.

      • Rocco Paone

        True. I have always considered that non-canon to the series.

        Plus they just show her fall slowly through the trees after he stabs her so she could be alive… (I like to think so).

        This should be the final film in the series. THE REAL series.

        • That would be cool, but I’m afraid the Weinsteins would be too concerned with “market confusion” to fall back In line with the original canon.

    • concerned citizen

      Eh? Laurie Strode was officially brought back in Halloween II, H2O, Halloween: Resurrection and both Rob Zombie’s Halloween and Halloween 2.

      • Rocco Paone

        Right. We are talking about the original series after Resurrection. If she did in fact live.

        • concerned citizen

          Ah, I see. I think Jamie Lee’s done with it and I couldn’t blame her in the slightest.

          If the producers are trying to “recalibrate” here (shudder) I don’t think they’ll want to get too bogged down in continuity.

          • Rocco Paone

            I couldn’t blame her either considering the original series went to pot after Resurrection.

            You’re probably right considering there are so many universes of it out there. I remember when H20 came out, it was huge. That is the REAL end of the series.

          • concerned citizen

            Yeah, I agree. Laurie didn’t go out like a punk, falling off a roof; she chopped her brother’s head off with an axe!

          • Rocco Paone

            Agreed. Maybe I’l start a petition to get JLC to pay attention to the fans 🙂 I want her back..!

  • Trent Owens

    as long as everyone in the movie isnt from the back woods and says f**k every other word i’ll be happy

  • concerned citizen

    “along with the child of a cop whose long been obsessed with Myers’ case, even putting it before his own daughter” – is the child of the cop obsessed? Or the cop? Is the daughter the child of the cop or the child of the child of the cop?

    • Lol. I thought that was kind of confusing myself. I assume the cop is obsessed.

  • Nathan Bradley

    Sounds interesting, I can’t wait to see it, it will be interesting to see if they actually stick with the death row spec of the film, I can’t see it happening my self.

  • Nicolas Caiveau

    I hope, it’s a loose sequel to the classic series. Because I made explanations to tie H1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 altogether in a single continuity and consider Rob Zombie’s Halloween 1 & 2 as the “Stabs” of Halloween, a movie inside the movie. So if I can consider this new movie a sequel, even though a distant one, I can pretend it’s a cohesive saga !

    • Maxime C

      How is the 3rd one part of the Myers universe?

      • Nicolas Caiveau

        It’s not, it’s a stand alone movie. But in my head, I linked the mad scientist from Halloween 3 to the Thorn cult of Halloween 6.

        • Maxime C

          Hm ok. Weird.

  • Calum Sanderson

    …they had no involvement in Pacific Rim…

  • S. Arw

    They had NOTHING to do with Pacific Rim, you fucking idiot.

  • ragethorn

    Oh please God, stop it already. STOP IT ALREADY! People now laugh when I say Halloween is my favorite movie of all-time.

  • Amanda Turczynowskyj

    Hmmmm I would watch it but I just think they can remake from the beginning and have the sequels go different directions then the originals. In the curse of Michael Myers he has a nephew & in Halloween H20 he has another nephew he still has blood family out there. Halloween is my favorite horror movie I will always love the originals <3 I do like Rob Zombies remake but he ruined the second one even though it was good for the time period but some one should start over with same story line but with with a few different new characters/story line tweaked just a tad I mean he does kill his own family so lets stick to that and figure a way to add in his two nephews that have just been forgotten

  • pablitonizer

    Oh…hold on a second! This means the script is finished?? seriously?? in 3 months?? Oh gosh…I can’t imagine what that script must look like

    I love Michael with all my heart, but if they want to keep destroying this franchise then let him sleep forever or sell the rights to other studio more interested in having a real horror icon back into the big screen. WC sucks at horror, sucks at marketing, sucks at producing….do I need to say more?

    • ‘Halloween Reloaded’ sound better lol?

      • pablitonizer

        Hahaha…hell no! But it’s not Batman returning, Halloween is a season not a human being…he’s michael, not Mr Halloween. I prefer “Halloween: Retribution”, “The Halloween massacre”, “Halloween on Haddonfield’s street” (that one is funny) hahaha don’t know, something better than HALLOWEEN RETURNS

        • I totally agree, ‘Halloween Returns’ sounds like a person or something is returning and we already have ‘Halloween: The RETURN of Michael Myers’.

          • pablitonizer

            Exactly…unless they’re rebooting Halloween 4 hahaha which it wouldn’t be a surprised tbh

          • Chrissie-Watkins

            Yes, exactly this. It’s like calling “Freddy’s Revenge”, “Nightmare on Elm Street’s Revenge”.

    • Jeffrey Scott

      Halloween: The Shape Returns

      • RidleyScottIsADirector@gmail.c

        Yuck, no, this is why you people don’t work on movies. HALLOWEEN RETURNS is amazing, fuck colons.

    • Michael Beasley

      Halloween: The Night He Returns…I think would be an awesome title. I believe this is a sequel to the first 2 movies hence his initial rampage takes place on one night over the first two movies. So Jamie Lloyd and all that jazz I think will be ignored.
      And if you think about it, Michael never truly came across as 100% supernatural in the first two movies. He was still relatively “human” He became a Jason clone in the 4th entry and beyond. Yes he was shot 6 times, and had his eyes cut and apparently survived an explosion, if they continue after number 2, but if it is strictly after the first movie, he was virtually human, besides the 6 shot ending….I think this movie could work as long as they don’t sart rappers or stupid actors like Justin Bieber and cast unknowns…also I hope the prison is only the prologue…I want Haddonfield.

  • GinsuVictim

    I have a great idea for this film….cancel it.

  • Daniel Kowalewsky

    I kinda feel like they need to stop trying to “continue” this franchise and find new ways to “retell” the original story. Michael is the original boogeyman and people enjoy going to see him in theaters again and again, but horror geeks and regular audiences are tired of the by-the-numbers sequels .. I can imagine a talented writer would find a never-ending supply of material in the “he said, she said” “what I had heard” form of story telling. Legends are always a little bit different depending on who’s telling them… thoughts?

  • Francesco Falciani

    sounds a big FAKE to me…please Mr D confirm this…

  • J Jett

    wait…..

    “A new generation of victims are set to emerge with this new Halloween remake…”

    i’m confused. is it a remake (and if so, of which HALLOWEEN movie?) or is it a reboot-ish?

    • “recalibration”; whatever that means.

    • Mr Sir

      Halloween: The Next Generation!

  • Melissa A. Petrina

    1978* and I really hope they make this right. they made a good move with not putting it in 3D. I have certain plausible plots…from reading this article, can the 18 year old child of a victim be Steven (Jamie Lloyd’s son)??? if so, that was one of my plots!!!

  • And It’s Gone…

    This has to be fake…

  • Darren Rouse

    Sort of sounds like all sorts of stupid, is what it sort of sounds like.

  • macguffin54

    As much as I would love to hear Halloween news, this sounds horrible AND there is NOTHING on the official Halloween website. I call shenanigans!

  • KTM444

    This is beyond stupid. It kills the mystery of “the boogeyman” So he is on death row, which means he went through fingerprinting, and a mugshot and a trial with lawyers. Did he wear his mask all throughout the trial? Will he have his mask on during the botched execution? It is so far from being a Halloween movie its embarrassing. I’m all for writers and producers pushing the envelope and trying to be creative, but this isn’t it.

    • John

      That’s what I thought.

    • judeau13

      My thoughts exactly, it’s like they didn’t learn anything from the misfires in Zombie’s two films. Myers is the boogieman, evil in flesh, not another serial killer.

    • J Jett

      KTM444, i agree w/ you 100%.

    • Daniel Baldwin

      …except he already went to court previously as a child. And would have again after the events of Halloween 2. I’m not saying this plot is a good idea, but let’s not lobby complaints at it about offscreen events that Michael has already gone through at least twice already.

      • KTM444

        Again, that is when he was a child, before he escaped and became the shape and got his mask.

        • Carl Williamson

          I’m with you on this one, especially when you said the mystery will be lost. After all, what made the shape scary in the first two movies? The mystique of the character. The way he walked, the way he never spoke, etc. I think by making Myers more human, we’re losing his best quality. They should let this series be. It’s over.

    • How can it be “beyond stupid” when, in the original film, Michael Myers was institutionalized for 15 years after killing his sister? He must have gone through some sort of juvenile criminal justice proceedings, which presumably included fingerprinting, mugshots, and some sort of trial to determine he had to be committed to a sanitarium. He even had a psychiatrist! And he was unmasked beforehand, we even saw it happen on-screen!

      • KTM444

        Yes all of that happened to him as a kid…That was before he became the shape/boogeyman.

        • He didn’t become anything. Michael Myers was a merciless psychopath from the beginning and never changed. That’s what’s scary about him. Don’t you remember how Dr. Loomis described meeting him as a child? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBMoxTSPq-c

          • Tosufai

            Thank you for posting that! People tend to forget this part of the Halloween mythos so often, something that was doubly annoying when Rob Zombie’s Halloween ignored it completely. Michael Myers wasn’t made into The Shape, he didn’t come from an abusive home or had some tragic upbringing.

          • Best speech ever.

    • RidleyScottIsADirector@gmail.c

      It’s all in the execution. I don’t think we’ll be SEEING him getting fingerprinted.

      • KTM444

        I didn’t say we’d see him get fingerprinted. Yes it will all be in the execution of how well or how bad they present the story. I was talking about the mythos of him being the shape, the boogeyman. It totally takes away from that mystery if we have knowledge that he went through booking and court appearances etc. And if they are to show a botched execution, will he be masked? if not, then they will show his face? Its just a rather stupid storyline to begin with.

        • Again, it didn’t take away from the mythos to know he was in a sanitarium for 15 years. I don’t get why you’re so hung up on the thought of Michael Myers being unmasked. We saw him unmasked TWICE in the original film. Once as a child and once as an adult.

        • RidleyScottIsADirector@gmail.c

          Dude they’ll probably show only the neck down or something. I don’t know. Wait for the movie! Ahahaha.

    • Krug09

      Yeah that’s going to be an issue mostly to fans, new fans may not mind. They arrested him at the end of 5 with his mask on. How do they make Michael Myers get printed, take his mask off, make him sit in a seat and all that shit? I hope its done carefully so my eyes don’t roll out of my head.

  • EightiesGeek

    How about a sequel to Halloween 3 tying it to Michael Myers?

    • John

      Season of the Witch? I don’t understand.

      • EightiesGeek

        Ya, connect it to the rest of the Halloween mythology

        • Daniel Baldwin

          It already is. In the world of Season of the Witch, John Carpenter’s Halloween is a movie.

  • John

    I’m interested to see what they do with this story but I preferred the announcement that it will be an anthology movie. I’m just glad they’re not doing a generic remake.

  • brewers_rule

    Good that they’re finally abandoning the Zombie version officially. Between that and maybe having a movie w/Myers not even in it, this gives one hope they’re finally getting back to basics. Wonder how they’ll handle the doctor’s absence if at all? Pleasence was awesome and casting a good person there would do wonders for a reboot trying to bring back original fans.

    • Mr Sir

      I think they should take a look at Ian Hart from Bates Motel to play Dr Loomis. When I was watching him on Bates Motel, he really reminded me of Donald Pleasence.

  • STERLING ARCHER

    Halloween(78) is my favorite horror movie of all time. But please, let it go. The first remake was very good, but its sequel sucked.

  • Oh please no… and why? ” reintroduce audiences to Michael Myers years after his initial rampage.” Are kids too stupid to look up the originals which will always be better?

    • Rick Reed

      I feel this means it will be like the 4th. acknowledge what happened in the past and bring him back years after. The 4th re-introduced him to a bunch of fans who had been old enough to see the original two in the theater.

  • Abraham Michaels

    Whoever wrote this article doesn’t even know when the movie came out! It’s 1978 idiot!

    • EightiesGeek

      Did you read that article? Movies back then were in theaters longer then they are now.

      • EightiesGeek

        Never mind I see where he calls it Halloween 1979 again, I thought you were referring to the linked article.

  • Halloween_Vic

    Well considering my user name you must know that I’m the biggest Halloween Fan ever! Considering the first (1978) original was the first horror movie I ever watched when I was 6 years old. Michael is the reason I love horror movies and how I became a fan so young. I’m finally fucking happy some news has picked up and their now in the casting stages, which means we can possibly see the film by the end of this year or next year for sure. I’m just thrilled finally finally finally news has lit up, as far as the concept I’m kind of like blah about it, I mean after all these years and planning I feel they could have came up with a better concept honestly. Now once things go wrong in the execution how will he get his mask and jumpsuit? And I’m guessing it will take place in a prison or asylum which I like. A stand alone film? Ehhhh I mean I would prefer a sequel honestly, but I mean I guess as its own film Im for it as long as I see Michael on the silver screen again but this needs to be amazing! Make him Scary again, DO NOT SHOW HIS FACE PLEASE!!!!! Go back to the roots of the original, this being a remake once again can have the opportunity to make him Scary, dark, fearful again. They have so much potential to make this right and have the audiences remember why Michael is the King of Horror. None the less I’m beyond excited I’ve been waiting everyday as I check this site to see some Official news on the new film. Please do not fuck this up!

    • Jinny

      You’re not as big a Halloween fan as me, nowhere near. And neither is anyone else. I’ve seen the original over 100x

      • Luke Smaluk

        There are much bigger Halloween fans than you believe me. Just cause you watch the movie does not make you the biggest fan in the world. Do you have tattoos of Halloween? Are your walls covered with posters and memorabilia from the movies. Have you met all of the actors and actresses in all of the films personally? Do you spend money you do not have to fly to Pasadena for the conventions, and attend conventions all over the country? If you said no to any of these you are not the biggest Halloween fan out there. Not even close…

        • Halloween_Vic

          Well for one I fucking love your tattoo!!! I’m actually getting mine for halloween this year, never been to a convention unfortunately I’m on my own so couldn’t afford it, always been dying too though. I’m 24 years old so yea financially been hard but Halloween was the first film my mother played for me when I was 6 years old, I was so fascinated and intrigued, Michael Myers is the reason I love Horror Films, the Halloween Franchise is my favorite, obvious reason why Jamie Lee Curtis is my favorite actress. But I remember watching the original and being scared but not once did I turn away at the screen I was captivated by the anxiety and feeling I had inside from never watching a film like this lol I was fucking 6 years old!!!! Since then I became a horror nerd, but I love every single film from the franchise except part 3, but I love every film as much as the next one, he’s my favorite Villan/Monster/Serial Killer/Slasher etc. I’m so passionate about the franchise I could go for days with discussions. But your tattoo is fucking bad ass seriously!

        • ssauronthepowerful

          Nice tattoo and I’ll certainly give you props for your earnestness but fandom comes in many shapes (lol) and facets.

          I’ve seen the original about 235 times and I’m sure there are others who can dwarf that. Now if you told me you bopped Wendy Kaplan I might have to coronate you.

          • Luke Smaluk

            Cant say that I have haha. Good one though. 😉

      • Halloween_Vic

        Trust me I am lol

      • SugarShane333

        Lol what a tool!

    • Luke Smaluk

      I actually meant Jinny up there. The first person that commented on your post. I like your post and now I feel bad, because I wasn’t trying to be rude or anything. I meant myself as well in that argument. I’m a big time Halloween fan and I am not the biggest fan in the world. Jinny said, “You’re not as big a Halloween fan as me, nowhere near. And neither is anyone else. I’ve seen the original over 100x”. I just thought that was ridiculous. It’s like we’ve all seen the movie 100 or more times. Lol there is plenty of room, we can all be fanatics. But anyway, “Halloween_Vic” send me a friend request on Facebook, and I’ll send you an awesome piece of Halloween schwag. (Luke Smaluk) Have fun!

      • Halloween_Vic

        It doesn’t let me send u a request I actually liked one of your Halloween pictures see if u can locate me and add me that way

  • EightiesGeek

    So will it be a continuance of 1, H2O and Reserrucetion? Or will it be off of 4,5 or even part 6? The reason I ask this is because if he is in jail that means no mask, unless it’s coming after Reserrucetion because they could then have had the mask melted to his face with no way to get it off. Or will it follow Zombies?

    • oh_riginal

      Knowing this franchise it will probably ignore all sequels except the first one, creating an entirely new branch of continuity. It would be the first franchise to give a 3rd option for which films to follow, since 2 paths has been the most anyone seems to have done (Superman, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and now possibly Alien).

    • RidleyScottIsADirector@gmail.c

      I get the feeling “after his initial rampage” means after Halloween: Resurrection, and that there won’t be explicit references to that movie, but just references to “the Haddonfield massacres”. If you’ve seen the past movies, fine, but if you haven’t, they’ll set it up at the top of the movie.

      • Spookywhiz

        ” Initial Rampage” means the first movie not some crappy Resurrection sequel.lol

    • Jinny

      I hope it’s not a continuation of H20 that was utter shit.

  • Spidey2k

    Holy dumb fucking ideas…Why do these asshooles completely miss the point with Michael Myers? He’s not Freddy or Jason and the way they treat the character is so far from John Carpenter’s vision of “The Shape,” it disgusted me at the shitty level of creativity and talent that is collecting paychecks from even dumber producers and studios.

  • Job’s Wat

    Melton and Dunstan didn’t write Pacific Rim.

  • Holly shit. That was an idea I had a while back to have Myer’s go on a rampage in a prison asylum. They ultimately try to kill him by frying him in an electric chair. Hope this is a good “recalibration”.

    • RidleyScottIsADirector@gmail.c

      I don’t think he’ll be rampaging through the prison asylum. At least for long.

      • With the state of horror these days it’s all about contained environments, limited locations. You could be right but it would be cool to see a flick where the characters are trapped in one building with Michael. It could bring a claustrophobic since to the terror as opposed to Michael going house to house “trick or treating”. Either way, I’m just excited for a sequel.

  • Mike

    This is the dumbest idea ever for a Michael Myers movie. Here’s an
    idea Hollywood. Grab some of the most DEDICATED Halloween Fans who
    actually know what the movie Halloween is about, have them write the
    script and make the movie. Because these days, you have no fucking clue
    how to follow the original story line. How many times are you going to
    “reintroduce” Michael Myers to the fans? Everybody already knows who the
    fuck he is! I’m so sick of this movie getting ruined. I’ve been a fan
    of this for 30 years. This series is so ruined, I just wish it would end
    already. Greedy Hollywood Bastards.

    • Kyle Pittman

      That’s how RZ’s Halloween happened. I don’t trust fans any more than I trust anyone apart from John Carpenter.

      • Mike

        I wish John Carpenter would just come back, do one more Halloween film and end it. This series is just damaged. It’s a completely ruined franchise. Such a shame for an iconic film.

      • RidleyScottIsADirector@gmail.c

        I wouldn’t trust Carpenter to wash his hands after using the restroom, let alone make another Halloween.

        • Jinny

          He would’ve done a better job on Halloween H20 if they’d bothered to give him the 10 million he asked for. At least the movie would’ve been intelligently made, unlike the crap we ended up with, made by the writer of Sceam and the director of Friday the 13th Part 2. Wtf!!!

          • RidleyScottIsADirector@gmail.c

            Yes I agree we should’ve gotten a better director than STEVE MINER uck but Carpenter would’ve also been a bad choice. Hell, I wish Williamson did have time to fully write Halloween 7. It would’ve been a deliciously smart movie and not the gutted, diet Scream imitation we got.

          • ssauronthepowerful

            Eh…..Williamson has some serious limitations as well. His stuff is now pretty dated. He’s almost like Diablo Cody minus the tits.

          • RidleyScottIsADirector@gmail.c

            Nah, Scream is a TITANIC horror film that is PERFECT for CEREBRAL GOREHOUNDS like myself. People who like SMARTS with their BLOOD AND GUTS. And he struck lightning twice with its equally satisfying sequel Scream 2. Go lick 26 assholes in a row.

    • RidleyScottIsADirector@gmail.c

      Put 10 Halloween fans in a room and they’ll all have a different idea about what Halloween should be. There are Halloween fans and there are good writers, but how many times do those two things intersect? I believe Dunstan and Melton are indeed an intersection.

  • WalkingDeadGuy

    this story would excite me more if it was any other film, but it just doesn’t sound like a “Halloween” film. We need Michael stalking down babysitters on a quiet Halloween night. Just simple, full of atmosphere and with likable teens. Sadly, every sequel since part 6 (including RZ’s horrible editions) have ignored John Carpenters formula, which works so perfect for a MM film. Sigh.

    • wehoaks

      I’m willing to bet he escapes in the beginning (just like in the original) and goes to Haddonfield (just like in the original).

  • Christian

    ”Myers is now on death row”…LOL.

  • Jacob

    The plot works for me. As long as they don’t throw all logic out the window like what happened with Texas Chainsaw 3D, I won’t complain. And the lack of Rob Zombie’s truly weird remakes is just another plus.

    The prison setting is good because it’ll allow a place for the characters to get trapped and hunted down one by one, and although it isn’t Michael in the suburbs like everyone wants, I think it’s better this way.

    We have no idea what to expect. We’ve seen Michael go through houses before. We’ve seen people hide in closets and lock doors and whatever else.

    And I think it could work that Michael be in prison and still be the boogeyman. After all, he was in that mental institution for all that time and still the boogeyman. Perhaps the Death Row is after they decide Michael isn’t insane but a true force of evil?

    I think we have to wait for the film before we nitpick about the little details, and just try to enjoy this change in formula because it’s at least better than 3D, found-footage, rehashes, and Rob Zombie’s versions.

    • melvis

      I have a feeling its not going to be set in the prison. He escapes according to the article, but then again, maybe they meant he just escapes from the execution chamber?
      I will be shocked if he doesn’t “return” to Haddonfield. Which I personally would love to have them do some vintage stuff in the film. Its the connection with the original films that most folks love. Personally I loved H2O because of it.
      Zombie films I liked too, but nothing better than Carpenter /Akkad? Era

      • macguffin54

        FYI- Moustapha Akkad was involved in the first 7 movies and Malik Akkad has been involved since. There is no “era”; without the Akkads there wouldn’t be any of the Halloweens Besides, neither Akkad (or Carpenter, for that matter), has made all great movies. I want to blame Malik for the Zombie mess, but, really, look at 3, 5, 6, 7 or 8 (all of which have their moments, but were pretty lame as a whole). So his dad didn’t do much better.

        • melvis

          your post makes no sense…there most certainly was a era with carpenter/akkad. Zombie did his own thing, it wasn’t everyones cup of tea but I enjoyed the back story. He has his style, its not for everyone.
          the lameness of 5,6,7,8 were all up to interpretation. I frankly loved #3 Season of the Witch, and didn’t at all mind the Return and Revenge, the others were just meh…but hey everyone has their opinions. So live and let live…and that means Micheal too!

    It’s just occurred to me that it’s title is the same as Superman Returns, can anybody remember when they announced Jaws: Rising for it to be fake but Hannibal: Rising did happen? I wonder if this is a matter of having wires crossed.

    • macguffin54

      What?

  • everyone bitching that they want the simple Myers in suburbia film but if they did that you all would bitch “why cant they do something new with the franchise”

    • RidleyScottIsADirector@gmail.c

      Marcus and Patrick work on some BIG movies. These guys are real storytellers and I knew they wouldn’t do a simple babysitter movie.

      • Adam Stewart

        Real storytellers they aren’t exactly.

        • RidleyScottIsADirector@gmail.c

          Wrong

          • Adam Stewart

            How?

    • Krug09

      That might be two different groups of people.

    • macguffin54

      No, they have been doing “new” pretty much every sequel since the 90s and it hasn’t worked.’they SHOULD get back to the tried and true formula. Or at least, one not batshit crazy.

  • The lion & the cobra

    This sounds like it might work but then again it might not it would be cool to have Jamie’s baby be one of the teens in this movie

  • Jason A. Martin

    Cue the Zombie bashing, from the EXACT same people who bought AND DEFENDES his films.

  • cooderbrown

    I liked the Zombie films even though it sort of lifted the mystery off the character.

    This one has him on death row? – That’s not even interesting anymore to me.

    The greatness of the first movie was the absolute mystery of the character. You bought Donald Pleasence’s explanation of MM as almost other-worldly.

  • WilbyDaniels

    THIS ISN’T A REMAKE!!!! Rob Zombie’s was a remake, but this isn’t going to retell the 1978 story. Nor is this is a reboot, as this is basically just loosely continuing Zombie’s films and not starting from scratch.

    • SugarShane333

      You couldn’t be more wrong.

  • Spookywhiz

    People take not it states after his ” Initial Rampage” which would mean this films forgets everything after Halloween 1978 and it picks up years later with a now 18 yr old kid of an original victim.

  • Spookywhiz

    People take note it states after his ” Initial Rampage” which would mean
    this film forgets everything after Halloween 1978 and it picks up years
    later with a now 18 yr old kid of an original victim.

    • MrTorrance

      If his initial rampage is only considered to be the 1st film, then the only victim that could have a kid would be the mechanic that was laying dead in the field. I doubt Laurie, Annie Lynda or Bob had a child at that time lol.

      • Spookywhiz

        Definition of ” Initial – existing or occurring at the beginning.” So by that they are going back to its roots and bringing in a now 18yr old kid who’s parent was around when he first attacked Haddonfield in 1978. Writers can easily pick anyone that ran across him in the first film. It could even be a new victim that we never saw back then.

      • Rebecca Thompson

        Jamie had a baby in The Curse of Michael Myers. U think that could be it? That baby would be older than 18 though.

  • jessica

    dont fuck with the original movies smh

    I feel dirty reading the plot.

  • Tony

    Fingers crossed the initial rampage is the Carpenter Myers and not the Zombie Myers.

  • Sky Ferreira

    So many whiney piss babies acting like the Halloween series hasn’t been shit since Season of the Witch.

    • SuperKilla

      Part 4 was a great revival. The mask sucked, that was my beef with the movie. Other than that part 4 is a solid sequel.

      • ssauronthepowerful

        Agreed 100%.

        I actually didn’t hate the mask and Wilbur was an imposing Myers.

        I did have a serious problem with Myers basically riding on the pickups driveshaft for ten miles in the finale but hey, whatever.

        • SuperKilla

          That scene might have been a bit overboard but still entertaining. He was on top of the car Loomis was driving in part 1 when he escaped from the hospital although the car wasn’t moving but I get your point.

    • Dusti Jeffries

      i liked all the movies besept 3 & the zombie movies, i cant wait for this one.

  • Darth_Siskel

    Can’t we just let all go? Every sequel(after part3 but with the exception of H20) has done NOTHING for this franchise.
    It can’t be revived.
    In retrospect, I give Rob Zombie kudos for giving us something familiar but different

    • Khy

      Then don’t watch.

    • Rob Zombie’s films would have been fine on their own without necessarily having them be remakes. I am not a huge fan but it is entertaining.

  • Khy

    No idea why people are gripping. Sounds interesting to me.

    • SuperKilla

      I have to say this plot does not sound interesting to me at all because Michael is evil in the form of a man, that is why he can’t be killed. So the death row part doesn’t seem to be the right path to go in my humble opinion. But I wanted to comment because every time I see one of your comments you seem to be very optimistic about projects that could go either way and I respect your honesty.

      • RidleyScottIsADirector@gmail.c

        Michael is evil in the form of a MAN, and THAT is WHY he can’t be killed. Uh, what.

        • SuperKilla

          Uhhhh, yeah that’s why he’s called The shape because he is evil in the shape/form of a man.

  • Jonathon Asuna Leafa Richards

    these two did NOT write pacific rim please somebody fact check

    • Matt Clayton

      They did uncredited rewrites during filming. That stuff happens on most big studio films, and if I recall correctly, Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3) did a pass on Pacific Rim too.

      • Jonathon Asuna Leafa Richards

        fair enough

  • Brian Patterson

    Well I wonder how this next movie is gonna be? Hopefully it’ll be similar to 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 from the original era even though it’s not gonna follow john carpenter’s nor rob zombie’s halloween. Well all the films in the first era were good except for part 3 and the 2 films in the 2nd era sucked.

    • Dusti Jeffries

      agree

  • Michael Singer

    I kind of like sound of that plot. I could be kind of fun if done well.

  • wcwchris

    Umm Illinois doesn’t have the death penalty… not to mention I really don’t think Michael would be mentally competent enough to stand trial.

    • Rob S. Baker

      There’s also not really a curse of the thorn where people have an unquenchable urge to kill their entire families while gaining super healing powers… But it’s just a movie. Suspend your disbelief!

      • macguffin54

        I don’t agree. I’m already suspending my belief about this being movie #11 and ignoring all of the story lines from the various Halloween sequels. Now, before the movie even starts, we are ignoring the fact the death penalty doesn’t exist (for him), that he has already been found incompetent to stand trial and yet is being executed and that 2 teens will somehow wander onto and into a maximum security prison and then wander around the prison and make their way into a room with limited and assigned seating to watch MM be (almost?) executed. And then for MM to, presumably, find a way to escape not only the prison but the electric chair/gas chamber
        at the last second, with 2 rooms full of witnesses/press and a prison full of guards… Where does the “suspension of disbelief” need to end in this movie THAT HASN’T EVEN STARTED??

        • DeadInHell

          It must be really hard for you to watch movies.

          “Where does the “suspension of disbelief” need to end in this movie THAT HASN’T EVEN STARTED??”

          You kind of answered your own question there. You can hardly fault the film for the suspension of disbelief required for you to imagine how its plot will unfold. That’s a problem of your own imagination, not with the film itself, seeing as it doesn’t exist yet.

    • diapers

      If its a federal case, it would override state death statutes. I’m thinking Myers merits a federal case if anyone days… maybe by offing an officer at a fed pokey.

  • michaeldal65

    “As previously reported, Halloween Returns will not be in 3-D nor follow in the footsteps of Rob Zombie’s remake to John Carpenter’s 1979 masterpiece, Halloween.” FANTASTIC NEWS. Perhaps David Robert Mitchell (It Follows) should direct?

    • Khy

      Marcus Dunstan is already set to direct.

    • Dusti Jeffries

      1978

  • Octopus Out of Control

    They shouldn’t interject a bunch of teens in to the prison. The incompetency for that to happen would be pretty stunning. Just let the prisoners deal with Myers, and if you need a female protagonist, add a prison psychiatrist played by someone like Nicole Beharie, and if you need a female to die, just add a female prison guard who sleeps with the prisoner.

    • ssauronthepowerful

      That last sentence scored a huge ‘Ouch’ based on recent events in the news.

  • Frank Lloyd Jr.

    I heard a rumor that the new movie is about Michael Myers stalking a now grown up Lindsey Wallace on the set of her reality show “Real Housewives Of Haddonfield”.

    • jeffrey

      interesting idea…

  • ssauronthepowerful

    If this is a continuation of the initial timeline it could be interesting. Thing is though that the greatest horror movies can survive bereft of the cheap gore and emo-scare pops based on a strong story and compelling characters.

    Hopefully someone got that memo and actually tries to respect the mythos.

  • jtb

    comingsoon.net has reported that this film will follow the events of Halloween 2 (1981) and will feature the child of a Myers victim and the blonde sheriff deputy from part 2 (all obviously much older)

  • wehoaks

    Bye bye zombie timeline! Welcome back Carpenter’s!

      Amen!

    • Reggie Centeno

        • Reggie Centeno

          That don’t mean shit

          • wehoaks

            It means several things. That it’s a sequel to the original Halloween 2. That it is going back to the series roots by utilizing Carpenter’s series again. And also, that you’re a fucking moron. Bye bye Robbie zombie.

          • Reggie Centeno

            What ever u say dog once it comes out dont be complaining plus by the way its a stand alone film

          • wehoaks

            So the current official synopsis saying it contains a character from Carpenter’s Halloween 2 doesn’t connect it to his series for you? And that by calling it a standalone film means you won’t necessarily need to have seen that movie to understand the new film’s plot? Got it, you’re a moron. Complain? Why would I complain when I actually understand things? Maybe hire a tutor or something.

          • RidleyScottIsADirector@gmail.c

            It’s a standalone film…except for the fact that it will be tethering itself to the original two films, and uses a character from the second movie. Moron.

  • DeadInHell

    This is great news. It is the best case scenario for the franchise. The best sequel yet that has not involved Carpenter has been H20, and it rose above the rest by doing exactly what this one seems to be doing: removing all of the garbage that the other sequels piled on. Axing the terrible thorn cult nonsense and returning to the essence of Carpenter’s films was a master stroke for that film, not to mention bringing in Steve Miner, Kevin Williamson, and Jamie Lee Curtis. Resurrection immediately fucked everything up again, but for a moment in time the series was actually given a proper conclusion.

    This new “recalibration” won’t have the same star power, but I think Dunstan and Melton are a solid choice. Feast was a very different kind of film, but great nonetheless. The Collector is proof of their ability to create an atmosphere of suspense and dread that is essential to Halloween (something Zombie entirely failed to capture). Their film’s titular boogeyman has nothing on The Shape, but their use of the character and the strong direction of the film give me plenty of hope for this new Halloween installment.

    And really, good riddance to Rob Zombie. His remakes were utterly terrible. Here’s to hoping he continues to make boring, ugly “horror” films from his own dumb ideas and stays far away from franchises that he has no business running into the ground. He has a very specific audience, and they will see his work regardless. No reason in continuing to give him IPs whose potential he will squander.

    • Well written and well said!

    • cooderbrown

      I disagree only to the point that Zombie had the balls to do something that couldn’t really be done. You can never recapture that suspense and dread. I liked Zombie’s films. They were just different. JMO

  • DeadInHell

    Also, the mask. I will be very interested to see what they do about the mask, and how they treat the showing of Michael’s face. An easy fix for the execution scene will be to hood him before bringing him into the chamber for viewing. What is more interesting to me is what he will be wearing in the rest of the film and how he’ll acquire it.

    I would love for them to recreate the original mask from Carpenter’s films, because just about every mask since has been fairly atrocious. Especially in 4 (with the exception of the handful of scenes where he wears the alternate mask, which is so much less awful). It may be a good bit of cheese, but they could have him retrieve the mask as part of the first act. It would be immensely gratifying to see that iconic visage return to the screen.

    • jeffrey

      i think it would be cool if they mixed the 1978 mask with the halloween 4 mask or maybe the halloween 6 mask?.. yeah cant wait.

  • well their humanizing him again by letting him sit in court, i dont think ill be able to take that seriously, unless he was just a psycho. But even so, wouldnt we see his face? i doubt the judge cares whether michael likes to wear masks or not. And the reporters outside should get creative with the boogeyman nickname

    • jeffrey

      i could immagine michael coming back for the judge after he escaped and kills him and maybe some lawyers and a reporter…..mm! already seems like nice fresh idea for the beginning of HALLOWEEN RETURNS.. i like that title its simple almost silly simple but it works.. it makes the whole thing sound more old school and fits perfectly to the franchise.

    • He’ll be sweating taking big gulps of water. ” I didn’t touch those people I SWEEEEAR!”

  • diapers

    Sounds great! No offence to R.Z. fans, but I’m thrilled this ain’t going to be related. Am equally thrilled at the apparent lack of thorn cultish news.

  • Krug09

    I am excited SOMETHING is happening but idk if i will like this. However even if you believe this is a stupid idea (your reasons are valid). This movie sounds like they are taking risks. Not taking it safe. That’s a positive.

  • Evan3

    Question! Is he on death row for the murder of Laurie Strode?!?!

    • Dusti Jeffries

      well at the end of part 8 he was still alive but they could have got him onto custody lol, im glad they aint totally redoing the story, its starting to where hes already done all the things hes already done, instead of retelling how he becomes the way he is. really excited about this.

      • Reggie Centeno

        Umm it has no relation to john carpenters film

        • SugarShane333

          Yes it does clown. It picks up after the second.

          • Reggie Centeno

            No it doesn’t idiot 🙂 u have any evidence plus they said its not connected to john carpenter’s film and rob zombie

          • Evan3

            If it is Michael Meyers as the killer, it is at least based in the same mythology. Thus, he could be incarcerated for the murder of… ONE LAURIE STRODE!!!!

  • Dusti Jeffries

    I hope they continue after part 8, Halloween Resurrection, i dont want
    another remake or anything to do with the zombie films, or do it like
    the remake of friday the 13th where its in now time but hes already
    doing his thing, like hes already the killin Michael, they dont gotta
    retell the story….hope its awesome & gos with the original 8 movies, ima just call it part 9, forget the zombie films.

    • jtb

      they are beginning the story years after part two. So Michael will be in jail for the murders from parts 1 and 2

      • Reggie Centeno

        Umm no he isnt

  • Jonathan Larsson

    I believe Michael has become a characters that transcends chronology, so a stand-alone movie isn’t a bad idea. He’s like Dracula, people just know who he is.

    • Khalil Wright

      Yeah Michael, Jason, and Freddy are as universal as it gets now..

  • Mike Majewski

    Damn. Here I thought Zombie drove the franchise as far into the ground as possible.

    • Move over, legendary horror film director. Here comes “Mike Majewski” to save the day. Gimme the man a break, scrub!

      • DeadInHell

        I don’t think you know what the word legendary means.

      • Mike Majewski

        Give him a break? For what? Fucking it up? Get off his dick.

  • Porty Guil

    no more white trash dialogue and bad acting from sheri moon

    • Alex Dye

      Agreed.

    • Reggie Centeno

      Potty shut the hell up plus this isn’t john carpenters film so don’t get excited

      • Porty Guil

        dumb nigger, don’t you have a riot or shooting to go to?

        • Reggie Centeno

          U want a cookie dog

  • I Am Colossus

    Meh, 18 yr olds fighting off a villain that experienced officers etc. Don’t have the skill to handle, sounds stupid. Awhahahaha they talked all that shit about Rob Zombie, wait until this cookie cutter pile comes to life.

    • cooderbrown

      I agree but we might both be wrong. I am guessing you are older. I am as I was a young teen when Halloween and Friday the 13th came out. I had no problems with teenagers ruling the roost in horror movies. Now that I’m older – I go “crap – another teen flick.”

      I wonder if the industry would ever think about maturing with the audience? Maybe there have been attempts – but now we are jaded.

      Just something about being young I guess.

      • Javi Simon

        Nothing wrong with throwing some more mature meat into the body count game. I think the Saw franchise did it well. Final Destination 2 and 5 are my favorites in the series and they both involved older age groups than their counterparts did. The Halloween movies almost seem out of place without teenagers though. I always thought of that series, like Nightmare on Elm St., as dealing with the vulnerability of being young. These kids are seeing the best years of their lives come to pieces and even the adults can save them. Parents, cops, etc.

        • I Am Colossus

          Hearddat!!!!

      • I Am Colossus

        I totally understand where you are coming from, yet that’s not why I’m jaded. Zombie said it best really, ” bad things don’t just happen to teenage people”. I liked the fact that Michael Myers the killing machine was frightening for anyone. That should be the norm for this character and franchise. 1,2,4 were scary because everyone was scared of him for good reason. Nowadays they make teenagers seem like they can handle more than physically possible, it sucks. I’m more frightened about something that could kill me and my whole family, not something that could kill me because I’m a jaded out of touch old man and my teenager survives because his cute girlfriend needs his help more. That fucking sucks! The premise seems cool, but I have sooooo many doubts about this movie.

    • turk

      Nowadays, I think the average teenager is much more competent than the average officer. Unless this version of Michael is a black man, then they’d have him killed in the first five minutes.

      • I Am Colossus

        Not accurate, black people live longer in film now, sometimes shlogging through until the end. Yet, the average teen these days are no different then how teenagers have always been. Hip to current tech., way to into “taking stands” on the dumbest shit, and all done with a lack of security and responsibilty of personal actions. Yet we are expected to suspend disbelief of these facts, to give way to the magical endurance of 2 or more teens who can stop a mass murderer on the loose with little to no training. Not for me, maybe others but not me.

    • Robert Lawson

      What are you talking about? Let’s go over the ways Michael Myers has died.
      1: Dr Loomis shoots him several times, he falls off a balcony and disappears into the night.
      2: Dr Loomis blows him up (as well as himself) in a hospital.
      3: N/A
      4: A whole police precinct shoots him and he falls into an abandoned mine.
      5: Captured by Dr Loomis, taken into captivity.
      6: Doesn’t die.
      7: Head gets chopped off by Laurie Strode (who is no longer a teenager). Turns out to be a medic (still doesn’t make sense, but little does when we get into…)
      8: Electrocuted, but doesn’t die.

      Now let’s get into Rob Zombie’s endings.
      1: Gets shot by a teenager (Laurie Strode)
      2: Gets stabbed by Laurie (in Rob Zombies “real vision” of the ending) who may be very early 20s, or theatrically, gets shot by a precinct of police officers.

      Seems your complaints with teens killing mass murderers only applies to the Rob Zombie films…. Lol.

      • I Am Colossus

        The Zombie movies had teens and adults alike, yet in wasn’t putting down this franchise on a whole at all I love all these movies with Resurrection being the sole movie I refuse to watch again. I’m talking about this new movie. I’m sure you’ve understood that from previous comments I’ve made. Youre a smart person I’m sure.

        • Robert Lawson

          I’m smart enough to have a good grasp of reading comprehension, and it seems you are willing to jump to conclusions about how inept teens are going to fight off a villain experienced officers can’t handle, then praise a director who has done this exact thing. You’re smart enough to see the hypocrisy in this, I’m sure.

          • I Am Colossus

            There’s no hypocrisy in that, I didn’t fail to see any of that in the movie where a villain kidnaps the victim repeatedly to be by herself with said villain. Where as today’s horror film tries to justify teens being more experienced. In fact both of those movies the teen under question was repeatedly torn up by the end of the film and survived barely. I get the Zombie hate, you’ve made that obvious. That doesn’t validate your comment. Watch the films again, don’t be a hypocrite.

          • Robert Lawson

            Some movies have them trapped in the woods, ect. It doesn’t make a teen automatically qualified to kill someone/thing that is unstoppable. And no, Dr Loomis was with Laurie Strode at the end of both movies, as well as the cops being “around” in both the Rob Zombie films. Loomis knowing more about Michael Myers than anyone else on Earth. So Laurie being alone with him is completely inaccurate.

            That said, I don’t get your love for the guy, and if you feel Laurie in any way COULD have survived with Michael Myers following her, without the tropes of the worst cliches in horror films helping her along then don’t complain about other movies that do it as well.

            What did Rob Zombie do to the franchise that you loved so much besides
            1) Ruin iconic characters
            2) Turn relatable, likable heroins into whining, obnoxious, unlikable ones
            3) Slap the definition of the symbolism of his film at the beginning, leaving out any chance for the viewers to think for themselves
            4) Half bake all of his ideas to where they become an incoherent mess.

            Not to mention, if you actually watched his films, you would know they lack consistency between the two films themselves.

            Zombie is just a terrible script writer, plain and simple. He could do the visuals of the film. The guy has an eye for the macabre, and I’ll gladly give credit where credit is due, but his writing is shit.

          • I Am Colossus

            Well that was a bunch of opinionated shit. So have at it, I’m not going to stop you, nobody can, so relax. But I’m not hearing it, I’ve seen the movies raised my own opinion, and I definitely don’t care about your feelings on a couple movies that gave a much needed edge back to a series that got fucked up. Cry in your hands tonight, youve earned it, just quit being a little whiny girl on my thread.

          • Robert Lawson

            And by opinionated shit, you mean the widely accepted opinion of the masses, lol. Someone’s crying themselves to sleep, but it isn’t me.

            Note the lack of trying to counter any arguement I’ve ever made? It’s because you can’t argue facts with someone who has seen every movie and isn’t some dumb blind fanboy.

          • I Am Colossus

            What facts? Really pisses you off huh? Well I argued facts with you, but your opinion is blind, and the masses havent always been something smart people follow, especially nowadays. Facts given on you’re opinion? Well, Rob Zombie writes and directs movies in homage to old cult classics, which is why all his movies have moments of unexplained surrealism. He makes them as simple and odd as possible, because that’s how those films were made. All storylines are sooooo simple anyone with a past in underground cult movies from those era’s could understand where the movies are coming from, if you don’t understand nor like them, then its waaay over your head. I’m not going to give you a lesson in cult theater, you didn’t like it, neither did alot of people who didn’t like or understand the previous films to H2 etc. But there’s plenty of fans that do. I’m a fanboy with a blind opinion, yep ya got me. Im happy in my little corner. Now go back to yours.

          • Robert Lawson

            Unexplained surrealism had nothing to do with Halloween, and will continue to have nothing to do with Halloween after Rob Zombies horrible excuses of reboots. Something can be simple and odd, but not for the simple reason of being simple and odd. Some things need to be dumbed down for people. Halloween isn’t one of them. Michael Myers kills because he is pure evil. It didn’t need to be dumbed down to he kills because he had an asshole father, and a loving thoughtful mother who just happened to be a stripper. Well, thoughtful and loving until the second film where her ghost seems to (for some inexplicable reason) want to kill her entire family tree off through her “ghost powers”. Are you kidding me? Lame, and simply bad writing (not to mention inconsistent with the first film).

            Do everyone a favor and stay in your happy little corner.

          • I Am Colossus

            Well 1-you invaded the corner and then got mad about rebuttles made back at you. 2-the point of horrible families, in RZs Halloween movies was to bring a little bit of different outlook to what could be realism to what evil actually is in reality. Bad families create bad people. 3-stripper mom in H2 isn’t a ghost she’s a psychos psyche creating motivation to kill any and everyone. That’s why she’s always hanging around a younger Michael. Guess that wasn’t dumbed down enough for you. Now respond about how somebody giving their version of something a twist that their art utilizes isn’t needed, and how tried and true makes you happier, and how everyone but you is dumb, that will for sure make you smart and better than others.

    Everybody loves Mike Myers and Jason. They have been killed off so many times since the 80’s….Freddy too..

  • Mondo Gecko

    Sounds as dumb as the last 3 Halloween flicks… It’s good to be back.

  • I never thought these “core” movies have different timelines like japanese anime shit where you can find Original Era, different Universal centuries, alternate versions, etc. but I really love that idea to move on after Zombie reimagined Myers. I never really liked it, I just tolerated. So…f@ck it! THE REAL MICHAEL MYERS COMING HOME HELL YEAAAH!!! 😀

  • Matt M.

    Umm…hate to be this guy (or love it), but John Carpenter’s Halloween came out in 1978. You all have it written as ’79 not once, but twice.

  • sliceanddice

    the title seems a little – i dunno – lacking (?) Not that i can come with anything better, I guess.

  • Chris Baxter

    I dunno. I just want there to be a decent mask for a change. The other masks looked like he was wearing a bad toupee or something. Nothing wrong with sideburns. And I picture him as kinda like a chameleon. Like maybe if he took off his mask he could possibly blend in to a crowd. Hell, maybe even get an appreciative glance and some giggles and whispers from some airheaded chicks; but the smart one would be the one to notice his crazy ass eyes.

    • jonessparkman

      I’ve been thinking this for years, I actually have almost an entire movie mapped out in my head where Michael doesn’t wear the mask most of the way, way more intriguing than any recent halloween. I guess the nerds might not be down with such an idea &/or to big of a risk for the money worshiping studios.

    • Bobby Gill

      No man We do not take off Michaels mask.NEVER..

  • Donald Trump’s Hair

    i have a horror movie script that is fresh, new and innovative. its too real im afraid to release it…why do these writers have to keep doing remakes, reimaginings, recalibrations? are they that unoriginal that they can’t figure out how a psychopathic murderer thinks.

    if they were really dedicated to their craft they would go into a state psychiatric hospital for a few weeks and study the patients. i did.

    personally, i think that the horror world needs a new villian. jason, freddy, leatherface, michael myers are so played out. they arent even scary anymore whatsoever. i havent jumped watching any of these movies in over a decade. #lame

    create a NEW horror icon.

    • Bobby Gill

      For Halloween 1 John Carpenter did go to a.hospital after his classes field trip and he did some research with the nurse that he knew and dated..

    • Bobby Gill

      That to bad for u,u.are missing out.Every Halloween I rewatch all the Halloweens,mostly Halloween 1,2,3,4,5,6….THE REST I DONT CARE FOR..HALLOWEEN TIME U HV TO WATCH THESE MOVIES.ANY NEW HORROR VILLAIN THAT HAS BEEN INVENTED AFTER JASON,MICHAEL,LEATHERFACE,PIN HEAD,FREDDIE..SUCKED AFTER THESE GUYS

  • Darnell

    Well….I am excited. I know this movie is going to be complete shit but I am such a Halloween slut that I will put out even though I know I will be crying with regret the morning after.

    Then again if I was able to get over the shame of seeing Curse and Resurrection in theaters I can surely get over whatever new Myers trash they through our way.

  • Johnny Royale

    I echo the hope that at least the mask will look good because the track record isn’t exactly stellar. I can buy a better mask online than the damn studio uses. The H20 mask debacle was a disgrace

    • frank sabados

      I agree

    • Bobby Gill

      Hes going to make the mask as same as the original Halloween 1,Even Halloween 2,4,6 Have good masks.Spiky hair in H20 and resurrection sucked in my opinion.

  • Brian Patterson

    So here’s what happened to michael at the end of the following films:
    1.He gets shot several times
    2.He gets set on fire
    3.N/A
    4.He gets shot by police
    5.He gets beaten with a plank
    6.He gets beaten with a pipe
    7.He gets his head chopped off with an axe but that wasn’t really michael myers
    8.He gets set on fire again
    I wonder what happens to him in Halloween 9 aka Halloween Returns?

    • Bobby Gill

      He will prob get cut by a saw.lol Marcus Dunstan will make it happen but not like how Jason Voorhees got cut in Friday the 13th..2009,Micheals scene will be different.ok bye for now.I WILL FILL U GUYZ IN WHEN I FIND OUT MORE FROM MARCUS BUT THE THING IS THIS,HE DOESNT WANT TO TELL US MUCH MORE REGARDING HALLOWEEN RETURNS.SO YEAH.

  • I Am Colossus

    It sucks when you reply to comments and make a solidified point and a little group of haters get it removed

  • Paul Thomas

    That would be my title for the new movie HaLlOwEeN : eViL nEvEr DiEs

  • Daniel Peterson

    Would it kill for this article to do some actual research in regards to Carpenter’s original film it was released in 1978 not in 1979 a simple google search would tell them that.

  • Bobby Gill

    No death row scene please.
