‘Halloween’ Reboot Shooting This Fall; More On Making Michael Scary Again

Everything we’ve heard thus far about the upcoming David Gordon Green-directed reboot of the Halloween franchise has sounded pretty damn good to us. Gordon Green is penning the script with Danny McBride (Alien: Covenant), and we finished out last week with comments from McBride about making Michael Myers scary again. Today, we bring some more McBride insights.

On yesterday’s episode of the Jim Norton & Sam Roberts Show, McBride revealed that the Halloween reboot will be shooting this Fall, and he also spoke more about how he and Gordon Green intend to fix some of the franchise’s past mistakes and make Michael Myers as scary as he was in the original two films. For starters, he won’t be invincible and he won’t have a sister!

It’s not a reboot, it’s not gonna be a rehash. It’s a continuation of Michael Myers – where we’re choosing to continue it from, you’ll have to see when the movie comes out,” McBride explained. “I’d already seen all these movies but I’ve really been studying them now, and just thinking about all the people that have been hired to make a Michael Myers movie. Just trying to avoid any mistakes that those people might’ve made. The first Halloween is scary as shit. And the second Halloween is scary, but not as scary. And then from there, it isn’t as scary. And I really think that what happens with it is that he basically becomes Frankenstein. No matter what anyone hits him with, he’s not gonna die. There’s no suspense.

McBride added, “We’re just trying to play with that. Make him real. Not make him real by giving him some crazy backstory either. Just getting back to the basics. Even the moment that they made Laurie and Michael Myers siblings – it also makes it not quite as scary. So all that kind of stuff to us… those are the things that took an amazing idea and took it somewhere it wasn’t quite as effective.”

He just keeps saying the right things, doesn’t he?

John 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.

    In the end “The Shape” is more compelling than “Michael Myers.”. Nix the damned Strode family tree. Hire in the best Jamie Lee Curtis 70s look-alike, kill her off in the first ten minutes, move onto a new body, new victim, new motivation. God forbid, start with a new child, and see that unfold differently.

  • dukeblues

    Can’t wait for the movie. But he was wrong about one thing. Halloween 4 was pretty scary too. Lets hope they:
    1.) Get a decent actor to play Michael. None of that H20/Resurrection BS.
    2.) Be subtle with the music
    3.) Lay off the teen angst angle

    • [1986]Butch

      creative and gruesome deaths would be nice also.

      • Darkknight2149

        I disagree. “Halloween” has never been about the blood and kills. That’s “Friday the 13th”. “Halloween” relies more on suspense.

        • [1986]Butch

          yes,but well made gore wouldn’t be bad.
          not Final Destination gore,just something a little creative.

  • Yes and Yes! Carpenters first film was just a story of a boogie man killing random people on Halloween night. There was no reason/purpose other than the fact it was Halloween and he had a thirst for blood that no medical diagnosis could understand (other than he’s pure evil).

    They only made her his sister because Carpenter was forced into writing a sequel (something he didn’t believe in) and wasn’t allowed to veer away from Michael Myers (something he got to do with Part 3).

    Return it back to it’s roots and give us a proper sequel (still enjoy P2 and H20) that returns it to it’s proper form.

  • Slash McClane

    What’s next, a dumb Hannibal Lecter?

  • I loved Halloween and I disliked Halloween 2.
    I hope this film don’t be delayed a lot of times as the new Friday the 13th.

  • pablitonizer

    I love michael so much, but they’ve fucked up so hard with his story that everyting’s almost nonsensical. Don’t know if I want to see another new branch of story coming from Halloween, the original story of stalking his sister Laurie is the real one to me, the rest is just fillers….

  • Ariel Baldo

    I really want to believe in this but first, I just hope it gets done and second, I hope it lives up to at least half of what they promise.
    Now stop talking and start working.

  • lupe

    As much as I love it, this is such a messed up, unreliable franchise. On one hand it’s cool they are trying something different, but it will be so confusing to everyone who have lived with the notion that Michael Myers is a supernatural force trying to eliminate every family member for well over 35 years now. I’m also interested in how they plan to make him mortal, if they choose to go from Halloween II – he’s been shot numerous times, even his damn eyes are gone and then he’s been blown up. Like, idk… Good luck to them!

  • Ok, i had so much hope and trust in this new iteration, but now I’m starting to get worried that they’re going to destroy the entire idea of what Michael was always supposed to be… He was always supposed to be unstoppable, unkillable; the Shape!!! I mean, i understand not wanting to explain the reasons of why and how cuz they’re right, explaining it away kills the suspense and intriguing mystery, but now they’re trying to take that away and do the SAME exact thing that rob zombie did and make him completely human just like any normal serial killer… And as frightening as that can be in real life, it’s not what Halloween was ever supposed to be, and i don’t understand why and how no one gets this….. I am so utterly disappointed and now i don’t know what to think about this new sequel reboot….. I am so sad right now……

    • James

      I’m curious but you’re right. Even Laurie references in the original (basically about him) being death/fate/a force of nature. But he’s not some huge powerhouse like zombie’s version…but he has no motive and he can’t be stopped. He is more like a man but yeah he’s still unstoppable.

  • Flu-Like Symptoms

    These guys definitely get it. They understand exactly what made the original work so well. Sounds like they’re gonna infuse all the little nuances and subtle novelties that made it such an endearing classic. Hopefully they also target the one key area where everyone have consistently dropped the ball over the years; the mask. Best thing they can do there is hire an independent mask maker (cough cough, James Carter) to make a ’78 replica. JC would have Michael looking creepy as hell again.

    Weird to realize the Halloween series is now in it’s longest stretch ever without a movie. When I was a teenager, the time between 5 and 6 (Curse) felt like a small lifetime. Even that has been exceeded already with the current drought.

    • Darkknight2149

      “These guys definitely get it.”

      That’s what I thought but, after these comments about Michael not being an unstoppable force of nature, I’m on the fence. That’s precisely what he was.

      • Flu-Like Symptoms

        I think what made the original work so well is we didn’t know he couldn’t be killed during the course of the film. Nick Castle played the part very organic. His movements are very human and believable and it isn’t hard to imagine a mortal man with serious mental issues playing out these fantasies he’s been thinking about for 15 years while sitting in a sanitarium. For me, that’s much creepier than learning this boy was chosen at random by some angry god to wipe out his family. Knowing very little about him and not understanding his motives made his mystic all the more intriguing. By the time we get to Part II Michael has suddenly become this mechanical terminator-like force whose soul purpose for existing is to kill his last surviving sister. I’m with McBride in feeling like the creep factor kinda dropped off in the sequel because of this. I much prefer the mysterious, perhaps mortal guy creeping around for no apparent reason.

        However, problem now is Myers is so well-established as this unstoppable force that they’re gonna have a hard time getting the audience to buy in that he could have regular human vulnerabilities, though I’m not quite convinced this is exactly what McBride means will necessarily apply to Michael moving forward. He might very well be unstoppable like usual. But, not selling this fact throughout the course of the movie could be very effective.

        • Dr. Acula

          It was never stated in the first movie. It was up to the viewer. The ending of him walking away is just a gag to leave something creepy in the audiences minds when they drive home after seeing it that hes out there! it isn’t canon unless you take h2 in account.

          Since this movie follows H1 they need explain how he survived the gun shots so its too late to discount that ending. So regardless he has to be super natural in this H2 replacment.

          As for the first movie, it was up to the audience to figure out that Loomis was actually telling the truth that Myers is the Devil in a human body or that he was just being poetic with his words.x

        • Darkknight2149

          We didn’t know that he was supernatural until the end of the original, but the unstoppable quality was always there. Michael Myers kept going and going, no matter how many times he was stabbed, hit, ETC. We also saw him use high levels of strength casually against some of his victims. What makes Michael scary is partially because he is a force of nature, even if the sequels took it to the point of ridiculousness at times.

          Danny McBride didn’t say he wanted to let the audience decide if Michael is supernatural. He flat out said that Michael is human in this film, claimed that’s how he was in the first two films (not true), and then falsely identified the supernatural element as the main reason the sequels weren’t successful. That’s my issue with the statements. And given the ending to the original and the canon status of H2, the cat is pretty much out-of-the-bag. I really don’t see how they can make him not supernatural at this point.

  • Creepshow

    The first thing McBride says is “It’s not a reboot”.
    But the headline clearly ignores that.

    • McGilli

      “It’s not a reboot” is even in bold lettering – that’s pretty funny.

  • Buddy Repperton

    Irony – Michael Myers wore a Captain Kirk mask. In Star Trek: Generations, Malcolm McDowell killed Captain Kirk. In RZ Halloween 1 and 2, Michael, wearing a Captain Kirk mask kills Malcolm McDowell. Sorry, I don’t smoke weed anymore, but I still have stoned thoughts.

  • John Casto

    They must not be doing there home work because Myers is supposed to be strong and hard to kill

    • Dr. Acula

      In Halloween 2, not the first movie, everything that happened to him in the first movie can happen to a human. You can get stabbed in neck, chest and eye and keep on going. As for the ending when his corpse ‘vanishes’ that is a gag for audiences driving home at night to be spooked out that he could be out there somewhere. It wasn’t meant to be taken seriously, and it was absolutely not there as a sequel hook, though when the movie made bucks it did get followed up on.

      AS for this new movie, yep he was shot 6 times at the climax, so regardless hes gotta be super natural in this new one. Unless he had a bullet proof vest? he is recourceful and did steal bunch of equiptment, so that could be their route lol!!

      • Darkknight2149

        Where would he have gotten a bullet proof vest? That’s not exactly something you can steal from a Halloween store, a trucker, or someone’s house. I also find the idea of Michael running around in a bullet proof vest to be pretty silly.

        • Boglin Boy

          its a joke…

  • blkwolf13

    He said 1 and 2 was scarier and they taking out whats not. . In 1 and 2 he’s invinceable and hes her brother in 2. If he can easily die, wheres the suspense, just shoot him “6 times”

    • True, but there’s also the point when he’s getting run over repeatedly by a truck and gets back up that it begins pushing the limits of believably.

      • blkwolf13

        But taking out the invincibility completely? And getting rid of the sister? Ppl keep taring into the original john carpenter classic and peeing on it. All these ppl want is the mask. They wanna create a new story but they want that awesome mask so they reboot the hell out of the classic. Leave it alone. Stop it.

      • Dr. Acula

        “In 1 and 2 he’s invinceable”

        He was not invincible in either.. The first ends with him falling (the corpse vanishing and breathing is just a technique that film makers do, and shouldn’t be considered canon in stand alone film and only be taken serious if you watch the sequel) and about the sequel, (both the theater and TV cut) end with Myers laying down flame grilled with no twitching or any sign of life at all.x

        • Darkknight2149

          “Shouldn’t be considered canon.”

          With all do respect, what you’re saying is ridiculous. It quite obviously happened. It wouldn’t be in the film otherwise and it certainly wouldn’t get acknowledged by the sequel.

          The endings to “Friday the 13th” and “Carrie” (for instance) were shown to be a dream sequence. There was no such indication in the original “Halloween”. And while the ‘final scare’ is indeed a cliche, no one ever argues that it never happened.

          • Boglin Boy

            so by your logic the ending of Pieces 1981 when the corpse gets up and rips the guys balls off isn’t a ending gag its canon Lol!

          • Darkknight2149

            I have not seen that film, but two things:
            1. “Halloween” is not “Pieces”
            2. If it’s anything like the other films you described, it was either canon or a dream sequence. Both “Friday the 13th” and “Carrie” even showed the protagonist waking up. Where was that implication in “Halloween”?

          • Boglin Boy

            LOL yeah i’m done talking to you. You only watch the mainstream movies. That’s why you never saw it, its highly regarded among gore and horror fans alike.

          • Michael Beasley

            the fact that you use the movie Pieces to validate another movie…a classic no less, shows your maturity level and logic…Pieces has nothing to do with Halloween so stop referencing it…it was a shit movie. Halloween the entire movie not 90 minutes but all 95 minutes are canon.

          • Boglin Boy

            ok the ending of Killer Klowns when they get hit by acid pies in last second.. the main dudes all dead? i could use 100 more example of better credit films though

          • Michael Beasley

            Don’t waste your time…Bogglin Boy is simply wrong lol.

          • Darkknight2149

            I just noticed that “Pieces” currently holds a 42% on Rotten Tomatoes, with one critic stating “Pieces is a wretched, stupid little picture whose sole purpose is the exploitation of extreme violence.” Critics aren’t reliable when it comes to horror, but my guess is that the ending probably did happen.

          • Boglin Boy

            yep because critics are horror fans….

    • Dr. Acula

      “In 1 and 2 he’s invinceable”

      • Michael Beasley

        he was invincible in both….especially in 2 when he is shot point blank in the eyes…you dont survive that if you are human.

        • Boglin Boy

          he was laying on the floor with sand man playing burning. that isnt invincible he didnt get up after that.

  • Wang Chi

    He needs to clarify what his version of Myers will be capable of. I think this Myers will be scary, but the supernatural aspect has to be there.

  • nowaygetreal

    I think most people aren’t understanding McBride’s comments. He’s not saying Michael will be easily killable otherwise he would be straight up contradicting the original, which he seems set on using as inspiration.
    It’s not like he’s going to write Michael to die from a thumb-tack to the arm. but he’s not going to have him thrown from a car and shot 40 times like in H4.

    • Corgen1988

      Michael Myers has been invincible since the first movie. Dr. Loomis shot him six times in his torso area, undoubtedly hitting major organs, and Michael fell from a second story balcony only to get up and walk away. That goes beyond hard to kill, that’s just flat out unkillable, period. Carpenter wanted us to think Michael was some sort of spiritual boogeyman. The sequels didn’t conjure that idea up, they got it from the Master of Horror himself.

      • Mr. William Davis

        Not to mention, didn’t he get stabbed in the eye with a hanger?

      • nowaygetreal

        I understand what you’re saying and I totally agree. I don’t think I can effectively explain what I mean over internet words though. But I agree,

      • Buddy Repperton

        Possible explanations – 1) Loomis was like a hundred and two years old and missed several times. It was dark. 2) Loomis shot a very pale William Shatner who popped in to save the day after hearing all the commotion. 3) A couple of stray Trick or Treaters broke Michael’s fall. Maybe Lonnie Elamb and his pals. One was kind of tubby.

      • Dr. Acula

        No No No that ending of H1 is just a ending gag for people driving home after watching the movie, and to be spooked out that he could be out there. it wasn’t suppose to be a sequel hook or be taken seriously..

        Watch Pieces 1981, the last act a corpse rises from the dead for no reason and rips the main characters balls off … its not to be taken seriously

        H1 made bucks, H2 came out using that gag to their advantage. So no he was not invincible in 1. But he has to be invincible in this new movie since it follows up from the 6 gun shot ending. They will probably say he has bullet proof vest or something since myers was recourcefu.l

        • Michael Beasley

          stop saying this!! you are just assuming this…the director and the story of the original halloween intended for him to live…there was “no gag” for the audience….that is canon, him living…and no, not only if i saw H2.

    • Darkknight2149

      My problem with these statements is that he’s saying that Michael was a realistic human in the original that could exist in real life, when Michael is supposed to be a force of nature; a shape of a human being.

      He also falsely identified what made the later films bad. And didn’t Rob Zombie already try to humanise him, anyways?

  • Darkknight2149

    This makes me nervous. Michael Myers’ immortality wasn’t the problem with the later films, and he WAS immortal in the first two.

    In fact, one of the scariest aspects of him is that he is an unstoppable force, which John Carpenter has even said. It seems that McBride doesn’t actually understand the first two as much as we thought.

    • Darkknight2149

      From these statements, McBride has failed to identify what made the original great, and what made the later films bad. And wasn’t it Rob Zombie that tried to make Michael human?

    • Michael Beasley

      I agree…the fact you can’t beat him, makes him scary…but it should not be in your face immortal…like uzis to the chest or something, just low key stuff, like a stab wound here a fall there and survives. Zombies michael wasnt scary cause he was like 6 foot 6…that isnt scary, cause who would ever confront or intentionally confront a guy 6 foot 6!? Michael being average build, unassuming is what made him scary as hell to me.

      • Darkknight2149

        Yeah, I think the ideal Michael Myers is him being unstoppable, but not to the point of ridiculousness. I hope that’s what McBride was trying to say, though he makes it sound like Myers will be completely human.

  • Darkknight2149

    If he’s so human, how did he survive getting blown up in “H2” (1981), let alone shot six times?

    • Corgen1988

      Don’t forget that before he was blown up, he got shot five more times by Loomis ON TOP of the six untreated gunshots still in him from the end of H1. Michael was strolling around with 11 bullets in him like he was out walking his dog.

      • Darkknight2149

        Exactly! I was excited when John Carpenter said that this would be a return to the roots of the series, but now I’m on the fence after McBride’s statements.

      • Dr. Acula

        That ending of H1 shouldn’t be taken seriously if H1 didn’t get succesful and didn’t make sequels. It was just ending gag for audiences to drive home at night and think in the back of their mind “he’s out there..”

        Since the film got succesful H2 followed up on it, making it feel like a perfect sequel hook (which it was absolutely not!).

        Since this new movie is following H1, then yes he survived 6 shots, so regardless he has to be super natural in this new movie. Unless shortly after she pulled his mask off she passed out and they explain the last act was just her dream and Loomis was killed by Myers, before escaping into the night.

        • Darkknight2149

          The new film is following H1 and H2.

          • Boglin Boy

            How can it follow H2 when they just said that ‘Laurie isn’t Michael’s sister’ when she is clearly stated as his sister in H2 ??

    • Dr. Acula

      “If he’s so human, how did he survive getting blown up in “H2″ (1981)”

      1. He didn’t survive that? He was laying on floor, no twitching, burnt to a crisp. Absolutely 0 sign of life.
      2. He survived that in Halloween IV you mean? Both this movies timeline, and the H20 timeline ignore IV.

      • Darkknight2149

        If he didn’t survive that in H2, then how is he in the 2018 film? You forget that it’s confirmed to be a sequel to be a sequel to H2 featuring Michael Myers.

        Something tells me that the entire film isn’t going to be 90 minutes of staring at Michael’s unmoving corpse.

        • Boglin Boy

          Explain to me how H2 is canon with this new movie when the article clearly says “No Laurie as his sister”? Have you seen H2? It is revealed she is his sister. You must read an article before you try and argue. This new movie follows 1. Deal with it. I like 2 too, but its being ignored. If it follows 2 he’d be whole movie burnt like Freddy, or does his skin regenerate like Jason X? Lol.. nah 2 isn’t canon with the new movie.

  • Erik Nyberg

    This won’t end well.

  • Buddy Repperton

    The first person who says “I think they should return to the Thorn cult storyline” gets punched in the pee pee.

    • James F. Reilly

      But seriously, the Thorn story…

    • J Jett

      Buddy, LOL!! i agree w/ you 1000%. 🙂

    • Chris Johnson

      Then go ahead and hit me in the “pee pee” since I LOVED the Thorn storyline…especially the producers cut of 6, which is my 3rd favorite in the series and the ideas that they wanted to go with it…sadly once Donald Pleasence died, that storyline wouldn’t have the same legs it could have had without him.

    • Boglin Boy

      Thorn story was flawed from the beginning, he was writing SAM HAIN in blood in the second movie.

  • Cappy Tally

    Relax, guys. It seems pretty obvious to me that what he’s trying to say is that Michael won’t be taking an insane, over-the-top amount of damage like he did in the sequels. Yes, you’re right, a normal human wouldn’t survive the damage he took in the original, but a normal human wouldn’t survive the damage a lot of action movie heroes take on a regular basis and no one really stops to question their humanity with any sincerity. “More human than the sequels” doesn’t necessarily mean “100% easily killable in a way that contradicts the original” okay?

    • nowaygetreal

      This is basically what I was trying to say.

    • Darkknight2149

      That’s not the impression I got at all. McBride flat out states that Michael is killable in this film, and wrongfully cites Michael’s unstoppable nature as the reason that the sequels failed.

      It sounds to me like McBride finds realistic serial killers more frightening than unstoppable ones, and is going to make Michael into one (a la Rob Zombie) instead of taking the franchise back to its roots like we were promised. How did this get passed John Carpenter?

  • Andrew

    I disagree. Michael being immortal is even more scary. Also the fact that we find out Laurie Strode is Michael Myers sister, is absolutely even more terrifying to me. I’d be sad if this new film doesn’t have some of the original cast and characters.

  • American Atheist

    It’s a lost cause. They can’t make The Shape scary again because he was mysterious and ghost like in Carpenter’s masterpiece. A living shadow of evil. Dr. Loomis perfectly sets the tone and atmosphere with his unrelenting fear of the pure evil that is Michael Meyers.

    There is no mystery anymore. Michael Meyers has become a joke over the past twenty years. Zombie basically killed the franchise off with his white trash versions.

    Why can’t McBride just do an original horror movie like Peele did? It worked out well for Peele.

    • James K Richter Jr.

      Good points.

    • Dr. Acula

      new ‘slasher’ horror icons don’t work, Victor Crowley is a cult character, Chrome Skull, Baby Face, Leslie Vernon, Jacob Goodnight, and Midnight Movie killer are not really cared about by horror fans, and are not even known by casual movie goers.

      • American Atheist

        It doesn’t have to be a slasher. The Collector is cool. Saw 1-3 are cool. I just think writers are afraid to take risks. I miss the 80’s-90’s.

  • Khy

    He’s sounds like a zombie repeating what people have been saying for years. I like that the family shit is dropped but at the same time nothing about this sounds exciting. Probably be a bland imitator of the first two. But if I’m wrong I’d gladly admit it. After all these years of stops and starts its hard to gather excitement. Maybe once filming starts? Meh

    I do like him mentioning Halloween 2. Thats my favorite Halloween

  • [1986]Butch

    at least the score will be top notch

    • Darkknight2149

      John Carpenter said he might do the score again, this time. If he does, I will be hyped!

      • [1986]Butch

        God forbid

  • Although I loudly balked when both Green and McBride were first announced as the official choice to make the new film,I’ll just wisely sit back,givne both men a chance,and wait till the film is finished and is released(since Green did wonders with the severely underrated Nicolas Cage film JOE[,and McBride is actually seriously into this new film]),for the next thing you know Jamie Lee Curtis will possibly be brought back(only if Green and McBride are interested in casting her[and if Curtis is all for it]) and everyone will be loudly hollering “H20 Again !!! AAHHHHHHHHHHHH !!!!”(and not in a good nor positive way).

  • Judge Satchmo

    The movie opens with the Shape stalking a busty co-ed. He moves silently, effortlessly over the terrain, like the memory of a light fog. He’s almost upon her now. She sits unaware on the other side of a waist high chain link fence. He raises the knife and plunges it downward with tremendous force… and cuts his hand slightly on the fence. The rusty fence. The Shape goes home, but he hasn’t had a tetanus shot in years! He dies quietly in his bed. Roll credits.

  • Graham

    This all sounds great to me! That comment dismissing a “crazy backstory” alone is enough to make me buy into this new sequel.

    • Dr. Acula

      the film already has a backstory lol the first act of H1 that is all we need to know. nothing interesting happened before that. he wasn’t beaten, he had a nice house, nice neighbor hood, his parents looked like nice clean cut people. He wasn’t abused. He was a normal, quiet kid. That is what is spooky on it, that there is no motivations.

      In the institution nothing interesting happened, he was a boring, quiet kid/adult who just sat looking out a window. Or sat in a corner eating alone and his whole body completely limp allowing the staff to lift his arms up while they scrub him with a sponge in the institution bathrooms that would be a boring movie lol.

      • Graham

        Yeah, I agree. We don’t need to know any more than that. My comment was more about my relief that it sounds like they won’t be adding anything more to that (like Rob Zombie did with the remake and it’s sequel).

  • LivingDeadMan

    If Michael “doesn’t have a sister” and it’s a continuation; Logically, it would pick up after Halloween: Resurrection.

    • Jeremie Jayzik

      Or right after the opening scene of the original.

      • Michael Beasley

        oh come on Jeremie…they aren’t taking away Judith who he killed in the opening scene…just Laurie…they are removing his motivation to kill only family.

    • dukeblues

      No. You did not know he had a sister after part 1. So the movie picks up after part 1.

      • stickytroll

        It was hinted at in the TV version of part 1

  • J Jett

    everything McBride has said about this new film sound PERFECT! i agree 1000% with his points as to what worked and what didn’t regarding past HALLOWEEN films. i love the idea of having Michael be human/able to be injured/killed. once he truly became like not at all scary unstoppable zombie Jason in the F13 films the HALLOWEEN films got kind of lame.

  • Ocelot006 .

    FIngers crossed this ends up a success. Then we can get Friday The 13th and A Nightmare On Elm Street re-revived once again.

  • Cody Briscoe

    Wow, it sounds less like a re-boot and more like a re-gression. I know this is an unpopular opinion, but I LIKE knowing what makes a killer tick behind the mask, it certainly gave RZ’s Reboot a lot higher emotional stakes for the characters but hey apparently Halloween movies aren’t supposed to try anything different so fuck it back to the drawing board.

    • Boglin Boy

      but in the real world 98% of killers are mystery. Serial cannibal killer Dahmer had a wonderful childhood, nothing sinister and he did what he did and to this day we cannot put the pieces of the puzzle together and the latest spree killer James Holmes was a bright, out going college student who now has blood on his hands and hes in custody for 5+ years & we are still baffled by his motives.

    • Michael Beasley

      Zombie’s remake would have been way scarier if his family life was completely normal rather than a redneck family that always shouts, screams and has abuse. If he had a normal life and then went psycho, you would be like “wait what the hell? he had everything why be so evil?” that is way scarier…in my opinion of course.

  • Alex Oswell

    What Mr. McBride said was pretty interesting. “It’s not a reboot, it’s not gonna be a rehash. It’s a continuation of Michael Myers – where we’re choosing to continue it from, you’ll have to see when the movie comes out.” It’s been said that the film is a sequel to the original Halloween II, so couldn’t he have just said that? I’m trying not to be so optimistic and it’s probably not likely, but is it possible this could be a sequel to somewhere else within the original series? H4? H6? Resurrection? Maybe like a Curse of Chucky type of film where it starts off as a complete reboot but then it ties in with the other films? I mean, I’m just happy it’s not a sequel to the Rob Zombie films or another remake. I’m very happy they’re bringing back the real Michael Myers, but what Mr. McBride said does get you thinking.

    • James

      Good point, I mentioned your post above in a good reference!

      • Alex Oswell

        Thanks 🙂

  • Stogie Jones

    Yeah, he kind of needs to be unstoppable or he’s just an average guy with a knife. Buy a gun, shoot him, and he dies. End of movie. Pretty dull movie, huh?

    • Dr. Acula

      thats how the first one ended and it worked lol…

      • dukeblues

        Except he didn’t die in the first one, so there is that….

        • Dr. Acula

          According to your logic Carrie became a zombie at the end of Carrie, and the corpse at the end of Pieces also became a zombie which got up in the last few seconds to pull the main characters balls off, so there is that…..

          • Darkknight2149

            No. The ending to Carrie was a dream. The original “Halloween” ended with Michael’s getting up. Sure we didn’t see him get up, but Michael’s breathing and camerawork quite obviously suggested that he was still out there. So did the expression on Loomis’ face. The REASON the ending was scary was that Michael was still alive. Also, H2 was from the same writers and is canon to the upcoming film.

          • Boglin Boy

            and what about Pieces? H2 is not canon! they are deleting the sister thing, laurie is revealed as the sister in 2. The breathing thing was a goddamn gag for people leaving the theaters to think hes out there, it was not suppose to be a sequel hook, they didn’t know it would make money, they didn’t wanna make another one.

          • Darkknight2149

            Are suggesting that the film trolled the audiences? Of course the ending was meant to tell the audience that Michael is still out there (that is why it is scary), but your claims that it “didn’t happen” are quite unsubstantiated.

            Plus, if the scene didn’t happen, why was it in the movie? Why did the characters react to it? Why did Sam Loomis give an ‘Oh sh*t’ look when he saw Michael’s body gone? Why wasn’t it revealed or implied to be a dream? Where was the breathing coming from?

          • Boglin Boy

            you haven’t seen enough horror films. They usually end with something which turns everything on its head or defies logic at last minute its a technique.

          • Darkknight2149

            With all do respect, are you trolling? And is anyone else seeing this?

          • Boglin Boy

            the fact you haven’t seen Pieces is enough for me to ignore everything you’ve got to say. You watch only films that have a famous title. Bye

          • Darkknight2149

            lol. Okay, bye.

          • Michael Beasley

            Darkknight…I totally agree with you and Boglin Boy is simply wrong. One cannot make assumptions that it was fake. If it is in the movie, then that is what is intended unless clearly stated via a dream sequence for example. Michael absolutely was shot 6 times, fell of the balcony, and survived and got away. Fact. Of course they wanted a sequel and yes it was a sequel hook, because that is why these killers become invincible to begin with so they can keep coming back for sequels. The fact that Boglin Boy used carrie as an example voids everything he said because the zombie scene at the end was shown as a dream clearly by the director.

      • ThunderDragoon

        He didn’t die, he walked away.

        • Dr. Acula

          No, that is just an old movie technique where a movie ends with something for the audiences to take away, sometimes a twist, sometimes a jump scare, and usually it doesn’t really get followed up on or considered canon in the sequels, luckily this movie made money so it did with part 2. == although it wasn’t planted there as a sequel hook in mind.

  • Corgen1988

    Partly what made Michael Myers a lasting icon of horror was his story of being a killing machine hell bent on wiping out his own bloodline. That helped make him unique as a villain. What’s next, McBride’s going to tell us how Dr. Loomis was so lame and he’s cutting him out, too?

    Why not just make an original horror movie about some sexually frustrated killer with a mask and a knife and leave Michael Myers alone if the Halloween universe is so loathsome?

    • Neckbeard The Terrible

      No Loomis is worse than no Laurie to me, he’s the conscience of the series

      • Corgen1988

        Maybe McBride disagrees. Stay tuned.

      • Dr. Acula

        Laurie in h1 is nothing more than just someone who was there at the wrong place at wrong time, nothing interesting to her other than she survived and put up more of a fight than the others did. The movie just tells it from her side but in this sequel it will be from another main charas point of view so shes not important anymore. Her point of view would just be getting her life back together in rehab far away somewhere.

    • Slash McClane

      I bet he does try to cut Loomis out.

      • Dr. Acula

        I noticed you liked that comment, well in the last act of PIECES a corpse gets up and balls the main characters balls off.. so that is canon, or just an ending gag?

    • Dr. Acula

      they are going to add Loomis with that ROGUE ONE / SALVATION CGI where they cut an old actor into a scene.

  • Barry Cameron

    ‘make Michael Myers as scary as he was in the original two films. For starters, he won’t be invincible and he won’t have a sister!’

    This is totally contradictive. He may not have had a sister in part 1, but he sure had a sister in part 2. So you really only want to be like part 1. Let’s leave part 2 aside.

  • Darren Knight

    I really hope they do a great job with this i really do im not a fan of Danny Mcbride but i will be happy to admit i was wrong if he and Dave Gordon Green do a great job

    • Slash McClane

      How can they do a gret job? They’ve already changed it so much that it’s not even going to feel like Michael Myers. In this day and age, some random guy lurking in the shadows that’s trying to stab women is just going to get fucking shot. That’s realistic. You can’t go halfway on realism.

      It’s a much better horror movie if Myers is unable to be stopped. Isn’t that what you guys loved about ‘It Follows’ so much?

      They are going to screw this up on a royal level. So much so that people will be wishing Rob Zombie was back directing the reboot.

      • Darren Knight

        I agree with you i think they will fuck it up royally tbh

  • James

    This could work out, like Alex Oswell mentioned below, this may be a sequel to a film in the Halloween movie universe. This is the only way I can see this thing working out, because lets face it you just can’t have a Halloween movie if you’re ignoring the Laurie Strode character. Every successful horror has a heroine, go watch Scream!

  • Horrible Day

    sounds great, hopefully they’ll get an original captain kirk mask so michael doesn’t look stupid like in the sequels

    • J Jett

      Horrible Day, i agree 10000%!

    • Flu-Like Symptoms

      The few that are left are in such fragile condition that they wouldn’t survive a full shoot, assuming they held up during the conversion process. But, there are plenty of Kirk replicas out there that are pulled from copies of the original mold. Could get one of those and have James Carter do his thing and instant ’78 Myers would be reborn.

    • Slash McClane

      They’ll probably come up with a new design, kind of like the new Scream mask from the series.

      • Boglin Boy

        there isn’t a scream series though, thats just some MTV thing that is piggy backing on Scream’s name.

    • Boglin Boy

      I don’t think that Kirk mask will be used, there has to be some stupid copy right issue (?) as it didn’t appear in any sequel (appeared on 4 and 5 poster though).

      Fan artists out there have replicated the original mask 100% and even found the rare original mask to use as a base, and even with all of that I doubt they’d use the same old one.

      Maybe not copyright issues, just because people like reinvent and bring us new stuff, would suck be art department on this new movie and told to just make something preexisting than to come up with something original.

      I’d be blown away see his original mask return in a movie, its not gonna happen though.. even if it was a breif scene where they recreate him escaping after H1 or it is in a evidence vault at the haddonfield police station, and then later on he gets a different wite mask.

  • Trav

    I like the idea of not making him immortal, but I gotta say, I don’t know how I feel about getting rid of the idea that Micheal has a sister. That is right from the original Halloween, and it is one of Micheal’s first original motives. Laurie being Micheal’s sister is a key piece of the original Halloween.

    • Jackson

      That wasn’t actually established until the sequel.

    • ScriptGiverrrr

      No it’s not.

  • Travis Ignaffo

    I think it could be good. Any thing that trys to remind other people that slashers are still important in this crazy superhero movie age is ok with me.

    • Slash McClane

      I think it’ll remind studios that remakes and rehashings are a safe way to get our money.

      • Travis Ignaffo

        Maybe but at least it’s remakes and rehashings of the greatest movie genre of all time.

  • RJ MacReady

    I am excited for this and really hope it revives the franchise. IMO, the last good movie was Halloween 4….H5 and H20 were okay, H6 was a letdown, and Resurrection was a joke. And won’t even mention RZ’s abominations.
    Seriously can’t wait to see another (hopefully great) Halloween movie in the theaters.

    • Slash McClane

      Yeah, it’ll revive the genre like the Friday the 13th remake and the Nightmare on Elm Street remake revived the genre. All it will do is cause more fat-cat producers to start remaking everything. We need ORIGINALITY if we want to revive the genre.

  • Kel

    I look at like there is a great trilogy in I, II and H20. That formed the most consistant and satisfing story. 4,5,6 make thier own side trilogy. Season of the Witch is actually a fun 80s camp horror film that if it didn’t have “Halloween” attached it would likely have a better reputation. The last movie before the RZ reboot is pure garbage and since it undoes H20 it doesn’t exist as far as I’m concerned.

    • Dr. Acula

      to me the great trilogy is 1,2,3 then they got bad (still watch them, I’m a b-movie fan so I enjoy them in that sense). H20 isn’t as great as people have been saying, watch it again, watch Myers movements closely, watch the last few acts of him stalking Laurie, is he like Myers in h1? when hes in room do you feel that threatening presence that you felt of him in a scene in h1? I don’t think so, and watch how he becomes a 3 stooge as hes falling down in each scene very clumsily, and getting bonked on the head, booted in the nuts etc, to me he was too much of a clown in h20, if you put h20’s michael in h1 it wouldn’t have worked.

  • ThunderDragoon

    Apparently he hasn’t watched Halloween. Michael Myers basically is a Frankenstein’s monster type of character. He gets stabbed in the neck, stabbed in the eye, shot six times, falls two stories, and walks away like nothing happened. IN THE FIRST MOVIE. Don’t humanize him like Zombie did. Don’t make that same mistake. Please. He’s a force. The Shape. Just ask John Carpenter.

    • Slash McClane

      Exactly!

      • Dr. Acula

        Uh people can survive stabs to the chest, stabs to the eye and it is never 100% confirmed he walked away from the gun shots/fall at the end, that is just a movie technique where the last few seconds of the last act turn everything on its head and do stuff that defies logic (see Pieces 1981 for an example with this, when a corpse, for no reason rises up from the grave, or Wes Craven’s Deadly Friend, when a robot face rips through a woman and strangles the main actor)x

    • Dr. Acula

      Uh people can survive stabs to the chest, stabs to the eye and it is never 100% confirmed he walked away from the gun shots/fall at the end, that is just a movie technique unless you view Halloween 2 which this new movie IGNORES where the last few seconds of the last act turn everything on its head and do stuff that defies logic (see Pieces 1981 for an example with this, when a corpse, for no reason rises up from the grave, or Wes Craven’s Deadly Friend, when a robot face rips through a woman and strangles the main actor)

  • Francesco Falciani

    wasn’t michael in the first halloween a supernatural guy? ’cause i remember a jhon carpenter interview where he says that he’s something mistery someone that u cannot defeat.

    • Dr. Acula

      It was never 100% stated until the second movie with surviving dozens and dozens of gun shots and writing Sam Hain everywhere. The first one it was up to the viewer to think if he is a lunatic, or something more sinister. It is up to the viewer to take what Loomis is saying as exaggerated/poetic or the truth that he really is personification of evil.

      • Darkknight2149

        Except he survived getting shot six times, getting stabbed in the neck, getting stabbed in the chest, ETC. He was also able to drive a car with no training, among other things. It was kept ambiguous for most of the film, but the ending confirmed his abilities.

        John Carpenter himself has also stated more than once that Myers is an unstoppable force of nature, including when he announced the 2018 sequel.

        • Boglin Boy

          He didn’t survive being shot 6 times? Not another one.. that ending is just a gag for people going home from the theater that night to be on edge as if he is still lurking out there somewhere, it was not to be taken serious…

  • John Connor

    Fuck that!
    Have it be a remake instead of a sequel if you’re just going to ignore what came before.
    I hate everything McBride is saying.
    I always found him annoying, now I hate him.
    He’s just like the masses of retards that hate on the sequels because its the fresh-cunt thing to do.

    • Boglin Boy

      what are they ignoring? She wasn’t his sister in 1. The original name of the movie was Baby Sitter Murders. He stalks baby sitters not his sister lol You’re thinking of Halloween 2 which isn’t canon with this new one (John him self disliked the movie and said he came up with the sister thing from drinking too many buck fizzes).

      You mean they ignore the 6 gun shots? Wait and see maybe they will explain he had a bullet proof vest LOL he is smart and recourceful, he stole his entire outfit and dressed like a ghost with victims glasses to trick a girl, the dude aint dumb

      • John Connor

        He wants to ignore everything in the series. Halloween films 1-8.
        Just remake it if he wants to go back to the beginning and change things from what they are in the films.

        • Boglin Boy

          We know. The only good ones were the first three. The others a enjoyable only as B-movies. I am glad it is ignoring all the crap after 1 to be honest. It is like Halloween H20 already did that it ignored 4,5,6 (and maybe 2). they ignore all the crud the sequels dished out and follow from the original. Why would you be unhappy with that?

          Nothing is getting replaced It just means now H1 has many different alternate paths you can choose to go down. If you like your Pleasance/Demon story you can see 1-6, if you want more of Laurie you can see 1,h20,res and if you want this new one you can see it after 1.

  • Dean Laxer Schuch

    Lol, Micheal was never immortal, just very tough to kill. If you want to interpret something else entirely, that’s your choice. Carpenter also never stated him to be immortal, or a Supernatural force. He is evil to the core and one might argue, that what ever drives him could possibly be an unknown force. But that still won’t make him Jason Nr 2. The sequels enhanced his toughness, just to make him more spectacular, without bringing it visually to the foreground of the film. And that’s all…
    Micheal is only human and McBride is simply right. Let him do it right… Zombie did one hell of a bullshit ride with the franchise, McBride won’t do the same kind of mistake…
    Back to the basics means just that, focus on his evil, focus on the tension and he creates. Make it dark and unpredictably scary. That is something Carpenter did just right.
    A good sequel is always better then forcing a reboot on you… again… O_o

    • VTTM

      “The sequels enhanced his toughness, just to make him more spectacular” – the sequels aside from “Curse”, right? If I remember correctly, part 6 very much made it clear that he’s a supernatural being, not just an incredibly tough killer.

    • Dr. Acula

      FINALLY someone who gets it!

      • Dean Laxer Schuch

        Thank you :). But it’s truely incredible how some folks don’t get the most obvious things in movies… you let this forum loose for another 48 hours, and you will have a political discussion, about Micheal being a supernatural being or not… *facepalm*

  • Eric Nirschel

    Trying to ‘fix’ Michael is the problem.

    • Dan Wettlaufer

      I agree with you 100% Eric. The simple fact alone that Michael is pure evil just sends shivers down the spine.

      • Dr. Acula

        I don’t like the fact Myers is pure evil… what gives me shivers down my spine is that it is NOT a fact… that it is up to our minds to figure out of Loomis is being poetic with words or if its true.. the art of not knowing the truth is more spine chilling than knowing the truth.

    • Slash McClane

      Yes! *applause*

      I don’t understand why more people don’t get this.

    • Banach007

      Stabbed with a hangar, eh? Were there planes inside?

    • I couldn’t agree more! Making him just a regular guy in a mask takes all the creepiness out of it.

    • Dr. Acula

      actually people have survived suicide attempts by blasting out most of their face with a shotgun lol and people have survived almost every bone in their body broken, or arms and legs blown off, so all stab wounds in H1 are not super natural.

      Him being shot 6 times was super natural, but then again he never survived them unless you take H2 into account as the breathing at the end and corpse vanishing was just a gag for audiences driving home at night to be creeped out knowing hes out there and not really canon in the standalone package.

      BUT since this movie follows H1 it has to acknowledge that, we know Myers stole ‘rope couple knives and a mask’ as well as a boiler suit, hes a recourceful and smart (see the Ghost scene) I wouldnt be surpsied if mcbride reveals he was wearing a BULLET PROOF VEST in this new one lol

  • Chris Genth

    No sister? I don’t know man I’m excited to see what they come up with!

  • Halloween_Vic

    But remember he was shot 6 times at the end of the original and fell off a balcony and got up. He was burned at the end of part 2. So Michael is somewhat superhuman or just un-killable to some capacity, so that would still have to be incorporated. However I love that they won’t have a backstory and just take it back to the suspense the first one started. However if their continuing from the original 2 then Michael does have a sister. I don’t know it all seems a little confusing, however I’m beyond fucking excited that finally it’s moving forward *fingers crossed* and that my all time favorite horror icon is coming back to the big screen and they want to make him scary again. That’s what the fuck I’m talking about!!!!!! But Michael Myers will always be scary to me.

    • Matt

      Michael Myers, just like Jason Voorhees, has virtually from the beginning been a super-natural being. It’s part of the story. Can’t leave it out in my opinion.

      • Dr. Acula

        Jason wasn’t super natural in part 2. You could view that he was just a hermit stealing supplies etc. All of his wounds in part 2 are what humans could go through, and he wasnt a giant and didnt have super natural strength. and it ended with him dead. It wasn’t until part 3 (or debatable 4) that he was super natural, crushing heads and surviving more wound

      • Halloween_Vic

        Exactly, like loomis said Michael is pure evil.

    • Dr. Acula

      It was never stated in the first movie. It was up to the viewer. The ending of him walking away is just a gag to leave something creepy in the audiences minds when they drive home after seeing it that hes out there! it isn’t canon unless you take h2 in account.

      Since this movie follows H1 they need explain how he survived the gun shots so its too late to discount that ending. So regardless he has to be super natural in this H2 replacment.

      As for the first movie, it was up to the audience to figure out that Loomis was actually telling the truth that Myers is the Devil in a human body or that he was just being poetic with his words.xz

      • Halloween_Vic

        True and I think it’s much more creepier that way to actually come up with your own conclusion and not fully know the truth. Is this man pure evil in a humans body? Is he human? But yea I think if they are going based after the first 2 films they might have to dive into that a bit of what he is or just not say anything at all. It’s interesting to think of where they can go with this. I’m way too excited either way though lol.

  • VTTM

    From reading the comments on every remake/reboot/sequel post of a famous series, I understand why we only get like 1 new installment of a series every 10 years: horror fans are so damn hard to please! Geez! Nothing ever is good enough. If they make something different and innovative, it’s shit. If they follow the original concept too closely, it’s shit. Even if they do find a balance, fans will say it’s shit. Bottom line: whatever they do will be considered shit.

  • Gd

    people who are mad about these news are not real fans laurie was never supposed to be related to michael, in fact. the original sequel carpenter had planned was very different from h2 (81) they tried everything to invigorate the franchise , from a ridiculous cult controlling michael like a toy, to an emo/redneck/hobo/jason part 6 rip-off with mommy issues and none of that worked..so let them do their thing and shut the fuck up.

    • ScriptGiverrrr

      Anyone that says they’re a real fan is a real fan. The end.

      • Gd

        here comes the retarded RZ remake fans and thorn freaks.

        • ScriptGiverrrr

          Hate both. Idiot.

          • Gd

            still a retard.

          • ScriptGiverrrr

            Cool!

  • DarkBree

    I’m excited for this, I think the franchise is in good hands.Let´s see how this turns out in the end. Can’t they just buy the Friday the 13th rights and make a movie? Please.

    • Dr. Acula

      But H20 had all the right ingredients and was in great GREAT hands and it ended up not being so good (its infamous for being AMAZING by fans, but if you watch it carefully you’ll see Myers presence in a room didn’t have that same threatening feel as H1, seeing his eyes constantly made him seems less of a threat too, his movements were less Nick Castle and he was a clumsy clown getting bonked on the head in each scene, then it got followed up by a MTV joke movie)

      • DarkBree

        I really loke H20. Let’s see how this new one turns out. I’m positive.

  • Matt

    My expectations for the Halloween series were greatly reduced after Mr. Zombies 2 outings. If it’s better than those, I’ll take it.

    • Reece Catlin

      hard to believe that the remake is now 10 years old..

  • ShadowInc

    I hope they keep a hint that there might be something supernatural about Michael Myers. I really hated that Zombies’ films just made him a big lumbering psycho. It’s too close to being Jason Voorhees.

    • Dr. Acula

      I hope it stays a hint and not straight out tells us. fun of H1 was to think if Loomis was being poetic with words or was telling us that he literally is Evil on 2 legs.

  • Reece Catlin

    Stupid title! Michael has always been scary! it was Freddy that got goofy!

    • Boglin Boy

      you are joking, right? watch these three sequels again: H5 (goofy as heck), H20 (Michael becomes a clumsy clown that is is battered around, all he was missing was a red nose), Resurrection (“Whoop his ass mother fucker”, nuff said?)

      LOL!

  • Reece Catlin

    sound like a couple of kids putting this movie together! why the fuck would you shit on the rest of the movies! also, Michael WAS invincible in the first movie! have you not seen the last 2 minutes of the original??? he escapes you asswipes! I’m feeling less enthusiastic about this new Halloween now :/

    • Boglin Boy

      lol you wait mcbride will tell us Myers was wearing a bullet proof vest at the end, 😀

  • pjfarmer

    Halloween 1978 and Halloween 2 1981 will always be the most memorable movies of my lifetime. They had such a huge impact on me when I was young and led me to my love of horror movies that has not let up to this day. None of the sequels, in my opinion, came anywhere near the 2 originals, although Halloween 4’s opening credits were very good. The two movies that Rob Zombie shat upon the poor unsuspecting lovers of the Halloween movies deserve to be disgraced into the garbage bins of time and left there to rot!!
    Having said all that, I somehow hold out hope for the upcoming movie, despite how many times I have been left bitterly disappointed. If the makers of the new movie somehow manage to assemble a very strong, likeable cast that the audience feels for then they have won half the battle. If they make Michael’s mask true to the original and have him played by an actor that can convey the terror that was felt by the audiences watching the first two movies, then they just might strike gold.
    I know I may be prattling on, but these movies are very important to me, and I just hope they can finally get it right this time. There is nothing that can replace the experience of the two original movies, especially when watched during formative years, but if the new movie can somehow get the look, feel and just the general atmosphere of the first two I will be a very happy person..that’s not too much to ask for is it?

    I still want a continuation from H20, Michael goes after John and his family 20 years after the events of H20, even JLC said she would do another Halloween Movie if the price was high enough!

    Why is he saying Michael doesn’t have a sister? He always had a sister. He had two sisters, he killed Judith when he was child and his other sister grew up to be Laurie Strode.

  • Shane o mac

    If they continue after the original 2nd film Michael will have to have a sister cuz she survived……but whatever, I am just so F’N excited a Halloween movie is actually gonna be made cuz it’s been to damn long

  • Stogie Jones

    Will Ferrell will play the Shape!

  • Michael Beasley

    I think what will make the movie possibly scary is if they set it in the 80s so it can have that grainy look and also do some cool “hide and seek” moments with Michael moments…like you see him in the distance, following the protagonists in the day time, hiding behind a tree in the park, stalking them…if they go back to that subtle creepiness…i am sold…also they need an epic chase scene on foot…i want an epic chase scene like the original.

    • SugarShane333

      As long as they don’t have him run I’m good with this.

  • Jake Bristow

    Really looking forward to this and if there is any auditions going, then I would love to be in this.
