Danny McBride Says ‘Halloween’ Reboot Will Make Michael Myers Scary Again

It’s been right around two months since we’ve heard an update on Danny McBride and David Gordon Green’s reboot of the Halloween franchise, which is headed our way in 2018. The duo is co-writing the script, with Gordon Green (Pineapple Express) set to direct, and McBride just provided some more details about their John Carpenter-approved vision while out promoting next weekend’s Alien: Covenant.

Speaking with the Empire Film Podcast, McBride noted that he and Gordon Green hope to make Michael Myers scary again with their reboot, which will apparently be (on some level) a continuation of the first two (original) Halloween movies:

Look at where the Halloween franchise has gone. There’s a lot of room for improvement,” McBride joked. “David and I are coming from it as, we are horror fans, and we are humongous fans of John Carpenter and of what he did with the original Halloween, so I think from watching this and being disappointed by other versions of this series, I think we’re just trying to strip it down and just take it back to what was so good about the original. It was just very simple and just achieved that level of horror that wasn’t corny and it wasn’t turning Michael Myers into some supernatural being that couldn’t be killed. That stuff to me isn’t scary. I want to be scared by something that I really think could happen.”

He added, “I think it’s much more horrifying to be scared by someone standing in the shadows while you’re taking the trash out as opposed to someone who can’t be killed pursuing you.”

Carpenter, who may be providing the film’s score, will executive produce with Malek Akkad producing for Trancas and Jason Blum producing for Blumhouse. Gordon Green and McBride will also executive produce under their Rough House Pictures banner.

Michael Myers returns to life on October 19th, 2018.

    he needs be 5’8 to 6’0 with thin build. the same mask. and not slapstick three stooges falling down and getting bonked on head like h20. more like phantom like 1 where he emerges from shadows. that creepy breathing from orginal.

    • Chris Genth

      Aman brother!

  • Since this film seems to be a rebootquel of the first Halloween, I would love to Jamie Lee Curtis fighting Michael Myers for the last time.

    • sTikInsEkT

      shes 70 and rich and does indigestion commercials lol

  • Corgen1988

    Is he for real? He wants to take away the supernatural aspect–why the hell do you think he’s The Shape? How else did Loomis pump six Smith & Wesson slugs into his torso, blowing him off a second story balcony, only for Michael to rise and disappear into the night? Then dash through a couple homes, pounce and kill a girl, calmly walk to the Haddonfield hospital (with six bullet wounds leaking blood profusely), kill a security guard, calmly weave his way through the hospital undetected while killing a couple more folks (all this with six untreated bullet wounds mind you), get shot five more times (11 bullet wounds now), awaken from brief unconsciousness, grab a cop and slit his throat, rise, walk through the hospital some more, take two more bullets in the eye sockets, get blown up and lit on fire, and calmly stroll down a hallway engulfed in flames before he finally drops for good?

    Michael was obviously intended to be a supernatural being who couldn’t be killed and that’s what made him so terrifying. If you turn Michael into some dude with a mask and a knife, I won’t be afraid. I’m fully capable of defending myself against any man–but I’d never want to go up against The Shape.

    • The Almighty Foust

      Yeah, I lost interest when he said that. Michael was never a “normal” human, not even in the first movie. He’s not human at all, he’s (as Loomis put it) “purely and simple evil” And how exactly is this supposed to be connected to the first 2 if Michael was burned to DEATH! (Normal humans don’t usually come back from that) And if it’s just a reboot where he’s now human, well, Rob Zombie already did that and, not to bring up that old topic (because that fight’s gotten pretty old) but he’s done it, so why do it again?

      Let’s face it guys, I love Halloween, but there is only so much you can do with this story. Maybe it’s time to let it die.

      • sTikInsEkT

        its up to viewers mind, not set in stone..
        h5 set it in stone and it made it boring.
        leave it up to the viewer to decide.

    • Chris Genth

      I agree, don’t take away the supernatural aspect of Michael. That’s what makes the original story interesting, that’s why he’s referred as the shape! In my opinion that’s where zombie went wrong, he turned the supernatural shape into a white trash hillbilly!

    • I wish Carpenter could at least make up his mind. One minute he’s not a man, he’s a force of nature, and the later films made the mistake of humanizing him. The next minute he acts as if all this unstoppable supernatural business is just something cooked up in the sequels.

      • sTikInsEkT

        up 2 the viewer

        • Yes, but I’m not sure how that relates to my comment. I’m pretty clearly talking about how John Carpenter himself views the character, not the audience.

    • sTikInsEkT

      he aint taking away shit, hes not gonna put it in stone that he is super natural, hes gonna leave it to the viewer. Going right out and saying hes a super villian possed by demons would make it a joke. its gonna be up to you. just like original. is loomis poetic? or is what he is saying have some weight to it. that is what is great about it. its not saying yeah the dudes a super natural entity. not until thesequels, and when they did pull the thorn thing it ruined it. better leave it up to audinces

  • Travis Ignaffo

    Him stalking the alleyways in the 2nd move are some of the creepiest but coolest scenes in any of the movies. Supernatural or not, the idea of a guy escaping a mental asylum and going on killing spree is a terrific plot to continue.

  • Michael Hill

    waits for the hate but…I think Halloween 2 is the best entry in the whole series

    • It’s my favorite also.

    • sTikInsEkT

      darkest 1

  • James B.

    They should continue the story of what made the Halloween series what it is today. Part 4 gave us the backstory we needef, with little Jamie and Rachel all of the movies released after seemed yo build on that story. I think they should go back to that timeline with this one. Make it scary, hire another little Jamie. Remember that iconic ending to H4? Maybe continue from there or rewrite that scene.

    • sTikInsEkT

      LOL hes got american football plates under his uniform in 4

  • James B.

    After H4 was released, a new Halloween film was made each year so obviously H4 did something right and Carpenter was pleased!

    • Not accurate.

    • sTikInsEkT

      LOL because musapha is a money man

  • Bart Crowe

    Nothing hurts your credibility as a slasher villain like getting your ass kicked by Busta Rhyme.

    • Kristoffer Groves

      Cant nobody f with tha Dangertainment, son.

  • Dan

    As long as they put some good effort into it, I’m down.

  • Wang Chi

    It’s weird. He has the RIGHT idea, but taking away Myers supernatural abilities puts it off a little. It seems over the years directors have had a hard time figuring out if Michael Myers should be an unstoppable killing machine, or just a guy in a mask. When obviously, you’re supposed to find the right balance in both.

    I’m hoping he means he wants to take Myers back to the way he was in part’s 1 & 2. Where he looked like a normal guy in a mask, but wasn’t quite normal after all. It’s the mysteriousness of Mike that makes him special. I hope they understand that!

    On the bright side, I get the feeling they WILL make Michael Myers scary again.

    • DJ sTikInsEkT

      he isnt taking it away hes doing what h1 did and not specifaclly putting in stone that YES myers is supernatural, hes gonna leave it up to the viewers. much better. H5/H6 made mistake of telling us he is and it made him less scary, and in original loomis spout about him being evil but your choice to choose just poetic guy or he actually means it.

  • James GanjaMan

    I’m all for reboots and remakes if their done with the originals in mind. They can be good. Looking forward to the Halloween reboot next October

    • Bill Agans

      It’s neither. It’s gonna be a sequel.

  • Geno1987

    So we’re having Halloween H20 all over again then?

    • chris hayes

      Correct there gonna call it H40….

      • Kristoffer Groves

        H2O2 – The Night He Bleached His Hair

        • sTikInsEkT

          wach part 4 scene in school again, his hair IS bleached

  • THE God

    Im the only one who like Rob Zombies versions. I hated the TRL pop packaged H20 and Tyra and busta Rhymes version. I also loved Rob Zombies version of the mask.

    • dukeblues

      I LOVED the Zombie versions. Hated H20 and Resurrection. RZ’s movies are up there with 1,2 and 4. I will never understand all the hate towards the RZ films. They were not Dawson’s Creek on crack like H20 and Resurrection.

    • Christopher Nickerson

      H20 and resurrection were crap, but so were tge Zombie movie. The later original series ruined itself with all the supernatural crap, but Zombie ruined it by going too far the opposite way and turning everything to white trash. Not to mention Zombie’s insistence on casting his wife, who is a horrible actress

  • Cody Briscoe

    Oh thank god. We’re regressing and not trying anything new. Just what the ‘Halloween’ series needed.

  • Flu-Like Symptoms

    “It was just very simple and just achieved that level of horror that wasn’t corny and it wasn’t turning Michael Myers into some supernatural being that couldn’t be killed. That stuff to me isn’t scary. I want to be scared by something that I really think could happen.”

    “I think it’s much more horrifying to be scared by someone standing in the shadows while you’re taking the trash out as opposed to someone who can’t be killed pursuing you.”

    Fuckin’ A.

  • disqus_uqr3Boh0Wp

    I can’t wait for it.

  • REC03

    I don’t think he means he’s not going to be completely unsupernatural. Just that they are going to go back to the original were its not so ridiculous. They are not going to over explain him and have him survive stuff that is to OTT. Its time for the franchise to go back to its roots and im excited as hell for this.

    • DJ sTikInsEkT

      finally someone who gets it!

  • Shane o mac

    FINALLY!!!!! But I am not gonna hold my breath

    • lupe

      Same here sis

      • Shane o mac

        Trying to be funny are you? Well then alright grammy

        • lupe

          omg i read “shanell”

  • Aaron King

    Take away the supernatural aspect? Maybe he’s talking about Thorn. If this film acknowledges I and II then they would have to explain how just a regular guy could survive a fire like that.

    • Ariel Baldo

      No, they don’t. Overexplaining kills horror.

      • Wang Chi

        They might if they want Michael to be 100% human.

    • Bill Agans

      Did u not read where they said it’s pretty much a sequel to the first 2 movies?

    • sTikInsEkT

      watch part 2 again. he writes Sam Hian in blood on wall. it is a cult.

  • DarkBree

    These news are exciting!!

  • Hayden Koutras

    fucking amazing news. i don’t think he means no supernatural but more so the removal of the cult storyline. couldn’t be more excited. Michael Lives!

    • sTikInsEkT

      i thought no cult in 1 and 2, or that saim hain thing he writes is to do with cult i guess

  • dduuurrrr dddduuuurrrr

    ugh, there already is a good Halloween… the first one, make something original.

    • Kristoffer Groves

      The original Halloween was far from original. It was basically just Black Christmas, but JC still managed to knock it out of the park. I’ll give McBride a chance, but i’m not getting my hopes up.

    • Bill Agans

      It’s gonna be a sequel to the first 2 movies, dumbass.

    • Chip

      Someone here doesn’t know their horror history.

  • Blade4693

    That is kind of reassuring. They sound like fans of the original and understand why it was special. let’s see if they can make a good one!

  • Khy

    Sounds like the usual bullshit we hear about every reboot or sequel.

    “We’re fans of the original…” blah blah blah. Bitch please. So much to be hyped for in 2018 and this doesn’t even register

    • Alex Harbie

      Remember, this guy is being paid to film, and for the good old capitalistic principle called the profit motive, no actor/actress will sabotage themselves by saying the movie will suck. The nature of Hollywood is just like any major business, despite how bad the product or re-release, the sucker who buys into it, is the one who loses in the end.

    • KennyThaKilla

      The peeps who shat all over themselves when it was announced John Carpenter would be involved would probably disagree.

    • I feel like we’ve been fed this lie so many times already. “We’re big fans.” “We’re gonna Michael scary again.” “It’ll be different this time.” Is Ike Turner making these movies?

      • Khy

        Haha

  • llcc1103

    I dont agree with making another one. Not really a McBride fan. But I DO agree with what he said here.

  • Shaun Michael Kelly

    They could bring back “the shape” and drop the whole Myer significance. Halloween 3 is highly underrated (IMO) and try something else. Audiences were obsessesd with slasher films in the late 70’s to the 80’s. Today we are not so much. Renew interest to involve other mysticism like the Banshee or play into Sam Hain. This to me sounds like another ‘cash cow’

    • Munchie

      Underrated? H3 is the best in the series after the original.

      • KennyThaKilla

        No.

        • Munchie

          Oh yeah.

          • KennyThaKilla

            Nah, not part of the original storyline.

          • Munchie

            Doesn’t matter. Still has ‘Halloween’ in the title, the number 3 after it, and John Carpenter’s excellent score with Alan Howarth. And just as a movie in general, what’s better? The dull, redundant 2? The utterly bland 4? The absolute abominations of 5, 6 & 8? Or MTV/Scream comes to Haddonfield (sorry, I meant Northern California) of H20? 3 has imagination, Stonehenge, creepiness galore, Silver Shamrock masks, and Tom Fucking Atkins.

          • KennyThaKilla

            Of course it matters. The title doesn’t make the movie. It’s a fine film, but has nothing to do with Michael Myers, so it should never be in the same conversation. You seem to think 2 is redundant, 4&5 are “abominations,” and H20 has something to do with MTV, but you’re also one of those people who go around liking their own comments. So I guess there’s that.

          • Munchie

            Fascinating. I didn’t know such a pointless rebuttal was possible. Congratulations on your achievement.

          • KennyThaKilla

            I’m sure there are many things you don’t know, but that false premise isn’t one of them. Unless, of course, talking to you is pointless. Then you may be right.

          • Munchie
          • KennyThaKilla
          • sTikInsEkT

            LOL the storyline ended with the first one the second was just a bonus extra piece of the night, the rest were crap

          • KennyThaKilla

            LOL yourself. The storyline didn’t end there and multiple direct sequels were made after part 3, regardless of whether or not you thought they were crap.

          • sTikInsEkT

            No. H1-H2 was the story of Michael… H3 was a different story. then there was Rob’s two films. as for H4 to H6 and H20 to Res, they were just bonus films that are to only be enjoyed as bonus stuff. H2 is when the real story ended.

          • KennyThaKilla
          • sTikInsEkT

            wow what a dumbass. the first 2 is the only real story the rest were made for $$$ get over it. That is why h3 was different because michaels arc had finished

          • KennyThaKilla

            Go fuck yourself, you opinionated douchebag. All movies are made for money. H3 was different because JC wanted to move on, but us fans weren’t having it. That’s why 7 movies have followed about Michael since H3 and an 8th is on the way. Because even though JC might have been done with Michael way back then, his arc continues on, whether you like it or not. So YOU get over it.

          • sTikInsEkT

            H1+H2 and michaels arc finished. deal w/it. the ones past 3 were $$$$ bonus movies.

          • KennyThaKilla

            Like I said, all movies are made for money, you ignorant fuck.

          • sTikInsEkT

            No H1 was a genuine story, the followed it up with a closure story and that was the end of it. 4 , 5 ,6 etc came because of demand. the story had finished at 2, those are just bonus films for fans who demanded them.

          • KennyThaKilla

            No. All movies are made for money. And all of the Halloween movies were and are made for the fans, moron.

          • sTikInsEkT

            LOL HOW THE HELL CAN H1 BE MADE FOR FANS IDIOT! it had no fan base. 4,5,6 etc are extra canon. h1-h2 is true canon.

          • KennyThaKilla

            Wow, you really are that fucking stupid. I’d tell you to look up the word ‘demographic,’ but that wouldn’t help you either because you’re a fucking moron.

          • sTikInsEkT

            you said h1 was made for fans of halloween that makes 0 sense bro

          • KennyThaKilla

            I don’t expect you to get it, for reasons I’ve already listed.

          • sTikInsEkT

            H1 was a complete film, H2 was a bonus closure of the end o f that night. That story arc ended, we had H3, people demanded more MM so the rest of the films were bonus, throw away, loose canon movies that people demanded, not to be taken seriously. As you know H4 to H6 continue from 2, and H20 and Res continue from 2. Well there is 3 continuities. H1-H2 THE REAL ONE. H1 to H6 the demanded one and H1 to Res the Jamie Lee return one. H1-H2 is the real story.

          • KennyThaKilla

            Blah, blah, blah. Doesn’t matter how many times you repeat it, you’re still wrong. It is amusing to see you keep wasting your time though, and a little sad that you don’t have a life so you try to get the acceptance of strangers on the internet with your now-it-all attitude. But sorry to say, you don’t know WTF you’re talking about.

          • DJ sTikInsEkT

            how is that wrong? You idiot!
            H1-H2 is the original, official plot

            H4 to H6 followed H1-H2
            and
            H20-Res followed H1-H2
            this new movie follows H1-H2

            Why is these 3 different, unrelated story arcs all following H1-H2?
            if H4 to H6 arc was the real deal then H20 and this new flick would follow it.

            that’s blah blah?

          • KennyThaKilla
          • DJ sTikInsEkT

            triggered? some new kid term? well if you read what i typed then you’d see it is clear. all 3 timelines followed h1-h2

          • KennyThaKilla

            Blah, blah, blah. I don’t speak idiot, so nothing you say makes sense.

          • DJ sTikInsEkT

            how does that not make sense?
            You are telling me that this doesnt make sense?
            Time lines:
            H1-H2 original
            H3 new story
            H1-H2-H4-H5-H6 Thorn story
            H1-H2-H20-Res Lauries bonus arc
            H1-H2-McBride The new one

            Each one followed h1-h2 that is point im trying make. coz they are only ones that matter. you must have a peanut brain not to see that..

          • KennyThaKilla

            You should deleted the rest of your comments as well.

          • sTikInsEkT

            H3 is one of the best in the franchise. Are you on drugs?

          • KennyThaKilla

            That’s not what I was responding to. Are you on drugs, or just have a problem with reading comprehension? <—Rhetorical question, it's more than obvious that you're just a meathead.

          • DJ sTikInsEkT

            H3 is the best since original. You seriously like Thorn Myers in his american football pads?

          • KennyThaKilla

            As I’ve said, H3 is a fine film, but not better than H2 and shouldn’t even be in the same discussion as the rest of the series since it doesn’t follow the Myers storyline.

          • DJ sTikInsEkT

            it had John working on it, and it has that same essence of the first two movies with the atmosphere and music. H4 and up went down a completely different path. So yes it should.

          • KennyThaKilla

            Based on your criteria, The Fog is also part of the Halloween franchise. Myers is the common denominator, you slobbering simpleton.

      • sTikInsEkT

        So true, that killa guy likes H4 and H5 with the big bulky thorn crusader Myers in that phantom mask heh. H3 kicks ass, he cannot like it because Myers isn’t in it. still a splendid halloween month movie

        • I love Halloween III. It’s my third favorite Halloween movie after the first two.

    • KennyThaKilla

      This is a highly guarded secret, but the audiences of the 80s who were obsessed with slasher films (and those who aren’t that old, but have grown to appreciate them) are still obsessed and want more slasher films.

    • Chip

      That’s what I’m hoping for so much. Drop the Myer plot and give The Shape a new mission so there’s actual room to surprise the audience. Maybe even stick him back into a child again?

      …That wording sounded so wrong.

    • sTikInsEkT

      people who dislike H3 and talk bad about it deserve a slap.

  • Munchie

    Blah blah blah.

  • Luca Modica

    Terminator Genisys.

  • Luca Modica

    Sorry but enough is enough.

  • KennyThaKilla

    Sounds to me like they plan on killing him off. Well there’s an original concept. I mean, it’s not like they chopped his head off in one film, only to reveal in the next film that it wasn’t really him. The franchise goes on, because the fans want it to, regardless of the director of the latest installment. So Michael is unkillable, weather McBride wants him to be or not.

        Hi there, grammar nazi. Thanks for noticing predictive text.

        • Orwellianson

          Don’t rely so heavily on predictive text; makes you look lazy and uneducated.

          • KennyThaKilla

            Predictive text changes the word you’re typing right after you’ve typed it and sometimes you don’t notice because you’re still typing. So don’t jump to conclusions, makes you look ignorant and foolish.

            As funny as those scenes are, I think shortening them only highlights the brutality more. Certainly not bad enough to ruin the movie for me.

    think it’s a really dumb idea. Apparently they’re stripping him of all
    his supernatural elements so he’s entirely human. Didn’t they learn
    their lesson from the reboot of Friday the 13th?

    • Ocelot006 .

      Learn what lesson from the reboot of Friday The 13th? Beyond FvJ, all the supernatural Jason films are the lowest grossing ones.

    • Chip

      Uh, Jason being human was hardly a problem in Platinum Dune’s reboot. Being a Platinum Dunes remake was it’s biggest problem.

    • Jason’s supernatural elements weren’t even introduced until Part 6.

  • Micah Unice

    So much hate for H20. I enjoyed it. I don’t see how you can dismiss it for being too stylistic but embrace H4.

    • Michael Hill

      true that. I see it as a solid entry that progresses naturally from part 2…not the dire tripe of 5 and 6

      • Chip

        You’re either a fan of closure (H2) or you want the formula to continue (4). But yeah. Nobody liked 5 or 6. .

        • JackLantern13

          Long live the Thorn storyline!

  • Simon Allen

    I just hope it doesn’t look too “cheap” as Blumhouse stuff had a tendency towards that I find and yes I know that their movies don’t cost much……Split looked like it cost $500 to make .

  • Buddy Repperton

    Halloween – A classic that probably should have been left alone. Halloween 2 – An enjoyable but lesser quality grab for money. Halloween 3 – A cool standalone film that should not have been called Halloween. Halloween 4 – Corny attempt to recapture glory of original, better than nothing. Halloween 5 – Was ripe to be made fun of on Mystery Science Theater 3000. Halloween 6 – I’ve taken pee’s that felt better than watching this movie. Halloween H20 – Dawson’s Creek meets Scream. Halloween 8 – For kids who don’t think anything is cool unless it has a loud mouthed, I am the coolest thing walking rapper in it. RZ Halloween 1 & 2 – Rob did it his way. At the very least there were no rappers or CW tv stars in it ? Halloween 2018 – We’ll try hard not to screw it up and make it all gay like the other sequels so ? (and for the love of god guys, at least try to get the mask right this time)

    • Evan3

      I was with you until your baffling excusing of the RZ Halloween films! I don’t see how replacing rappers/CW tv stars with the whitest trash possible constitutes an upgrade?

      • Buddy Repperton

        Based on your responses to two of my comments Evan3, I don’t think you’re looking to debate RZ Halloween(s) so much as you and J Jett are looking for an outlet for your hatred (self loathing?) of white people. RZ Halloween(s) were far from good or perfect, however, Rob did mange to escape the trend of following the current horror movie blueprint which has made modern horror quite boring.

        • IKilledJennySchecter

          Actually RZ did exactly that. His Halloweens fit perfectly​ within the then current trend of screechy, rape-y torture pornish subgenre of which he was a pretty regular contributor. I’m sorry, I had more fun watching H6 than I did watching the RZ version. His H2 is okay if you mute it and play your own favorite music, but otherwise his style (of which he and his creativity are truly prisoners) is pretty one note and MOR by this point.

          • Buddy Repperton

            That’s cool IKilledJenny. Everyone is allowed to like/dislike what they want in regard to movies. I just think Evan is one of those posters who is actually looking to pick a verbal fist fight with anyone who disagrees with his beliefs.

          • Evan3

            It’s true. In saying “I agree with you until…” I was clearly using my anti-white hard-on to try and engage you in interweb fisticuffs! You got me! Clearly nobody who detests the Rob Zombie abominations could possibly have a legitimate reason.

            In truth, I called them white trash because 1) by Zombie’s own design, they were as stereotypically white trash as possible (abusive, stripping, living in a trailer in the woods despite the fact that Haddonfield is a suburbia) and 2) using the term to contrast with your claim that these characters are better than rappers and CW stars (i assume you mean pretty boys).

          • He stepped out of his comfort zone a little bit with Lords of Salem, which I really enjoyed, but it’s a shame he made 31. It’s completely uninspired and derivative of his earlier movies, and it makes it difficult to argue that Zombie is anything more than a one trick pony.

      • DJ sTikInsEkT

        LOL resurrection fan alert

        • Evan3

          Ha! I can dislike both of them. But I dislike Resurrection less.

      • I do. Zombie’s movies were far from perfect, but they didn’t involve a Busta Rhymes kung-fu fight so that is an upgrade.

  • Chip

    I’m just glad Dimensions isn’t behind this. Blumhouse at least has a few successes now and then. Dimension needs to have a hostile take over and have all its horror assets distributed between Lionsgate, Blumhouse, and New Lines. At the very least they can tear Hellraiser out of the Winestien’s cold, lifeless fingers.

  • tyler

    Blah Blah Blah – guarantee it won’t be better than Rob Zombie’s and I don’t mean Zombie’s version is unbeatable. Simply looking at the history of reboots and sequels… nothing gets better, it only gets worse. I have heard these lines so many times: “stripped down,” “back to basics,” “more like the original,” and every single time they turn out to be more boring, very forgettable, and stars an ugly, completely unknown and unlikable cast. Anyways…. hopefully it’s good!

    • Wow, your pessimism is pretty remarkable if only because some sequels are really awesome (though admittedly quite a few suck).

    • Blood Boil

      Michael Myers whipping and nay naying on Ellen would be scarier than that piece of shit Rob Zombie made

    • Evan3

      Uhhhm. Fantastic Five? Terminator 2? Casino Royale and Goldeneye? Friday the 13th? Virtually all the Marvel movies. Lots of shit gets better as it goes along.

    • sTikInsEkT

      are you tyler mane

  • biff

    Carpenter was all behind that The Fog remake too, and I walked right out of that one (the first movie I’ve done that on, for the record). Dunno if they had ol’ JC hoodwinked or what, but jeez…

    • sTikInsEkT

      “I extended my hand and a check fell into it”
      that is what he did for FOG remake

      • biff

        Sigh.

  • drew

    Bring back the original mask for the love of god! It’s not that hard!

    • sTikInsEkT

      if you are willing to pay copy right fees to release it do it

      • drew

        Huh?

        • sTikInsEkT

          the fact the mask hasnt been used since h1 must be copyright. fans have replicated and found the original shatner masks for years.

          • drew

            How do you know that? Seems like lazy filmmaking to me.

          • sTikInsEkT

            the fact both H4 and H5 use the original shatner mask on the cover, yet don’t feature it nor do any since the 82 film

          • drew

            Halloween 2 was 1981. The mask was given to Dick Warlock after the movie wrapped. Halloween 3 was released in 1982 and didn’t feature Michael Myers. Just because they didn’t try to recreate the original mask in H4, H5 or H6 doesn’t mean that they couldn’t have. They had the rights to the film franchise so they could have done anything they wanted.

          • sTikInsEkT

            I know every detail about the Halloween movies. I put 1982 as a typo. You don’t have to tell me. You are talking about the EXACT prop from the H1/H2 set, the one that was under Debra’s bed in a shoe box (which was later taken onto the Friday 13th 5 set by Dick).

            I am not talking about the exact prop, i’m talking about a replica, or recreation based on the same or similar Shatner mask. They cannot do that or they would. Why else wouldn’t they? they go as far as to stick it on h4 and h5 poster art, but don’t use it in the film? that’s a little odd.. Not even in H20 did they bring it back. It is some rights issue.

          • drew

            And yet, you are still wrong. lol

          • sTikInsEkT

            what? what am i wrong on? you are an idiot.

          • drew

            lol, About the mask style not being used because of a copyright issue. That’s ridiculous!

          • sTikInsEkT

            what an idiot! then why would they go as far as to use the original mask on the covers, but not even use them in any of the sequels, not even in H20? You are a dumbass. There is a copyright issue. Fans have been making complete replicas of the original mask and even finding the orginal shatner mask for years, and that mask is iconic. So you are saying all the people behind the michael myers film past 2 are all just dumb for not being able to see that..

          • sTikInsEkT
          • drew

            Are you really this stupid? That clam is against Don Post for trying to market the mask not the filmmakers for using it in their movie. There is no proof at all that the filmmakers can’t use the original Shatner design. Try again loser.

          • sTikInsEkT

            burp

          • drew

            Even if they can’t use the Don Post version of the mask, that doesn’t mean that they can’t recreate the original and that’s what I have been saying all along. Jesus dude.

          • sTikInsEkT

            even that is too close which is why delbertly different

          • sTikInsEkT

            then why didnt they use it in h4 h5 h6 h7 h8 robzombie????? they must be fools as the mask is so iconic

        • sTikInsEkT

          h2* I mean

  • Slash McClane

    Michael Myers was supernatural from the start. He is the personification of evil. Had he been “a normal guy in the shadows” he would’ve never made it into the sequel.

    You now have me scared, Danny.

    • Chad Duerksen

      Considering there was never supposed to be a sequel, he wasn’t supernatural “from the start.” He was the boogeyman. When producers wanted a sequel, he was changed into something supernatural, just like Laurie was changed into his sister (which she wasn’t in the first film).

      • KennyThaKilla

        “Considering there was never supposed to be a sequel, he wasn’t supernatural “from the start.” He was the boogeyman.”

        boogeyman
        [boo g-ee-man]

        noun

        1. an imaginary evil character of supernatural powers, especially a mythical hobgoblin supposed to carry off naughty children.

        http://www.dictionary.com/browse/boogeyman

        • Chad Duerksen

          Good try, but Carpenter has stated repeatedly he wasn’t “supernatural,” just evil. Try again.

          • KennyThaKilla

            Try what again? Posting a definition of the word ‘boogeyman’ which directly refutes your statement? That would be redundant and unnecessary. Doesn’t matter if JC intended Michael to be supernatural or not. By invoking the word several times and having him disappear after Loomis put 6 rounds in him, he put that notion in everyone’s head. If JC is unhappy about Michael being supernatural, he only has himself to blame.

          • sTikInsEkT

            idiot MM was not super natural in h1, it was up to your mind to think that it wasnt specifically stated

          • KennyThaKilla

            As a matter of fact, it was specifically stated by Loomis that Michael was indeed the boogeyman, you fucking troll.

          • sTikInsEkT

            LOL THAT WAS JUST LOOMIS BEING OVERREACTIVE AND POETIC WITH WORDS AHAHAHAHHA

          • KennyThaKilla

            Laugh it up, fuzzball. Loomis wasn’t the only one to say it. The boogeyman was brought up several times in the film culminating in Loomis saying what he did after Michael disappeared. Doesn’t matter how you try to spin it, JC wanted his audience to think Michael was supernatural. So choke on it.

          • sTikInsEkT

            A KID said boogeyman because in 70s america the boogeyman was a fake entity to get kids to behave lol

          • KennyThaKilla

            It doesn’t matter who said it, you gormless twit. What does matter is that it’s mentioned several times in the script. That’s not a coincidence. It’s there for a reason. It’s already been established that the boogeyman is a mythical figure, and that he’s supernatural. Try paying attention.

          • sTikInsEkT

            you are so dumb! MM was normal dude until h2, john called him force so? people call serial killers a force of evil all time.

            I don’t care what the motives were for making him incincible, the fact of the matter is, he BECAME invincible when he walked alway from having a gun emptied into him. That happened in the first film, and the character is and always will be unkillable.

            After getting shot multiple times, he fell out the window, and still lived.

            absolute kid. First MM was just a dude, second gave us the powers. Boogeyman was used in poetic way or child in the first one, it is up to the viewer to decide in his mind if hes super natural or not. IF they wanted it in stone that he is super natural, the whole beginning of a kid just picking up a knife loses its scary value, likes if they said HE WAS POSE
