Jamie Lee Curtis Playing Laurie Strode in Blumhouse’s ‘Halloween’!

Halloween Jamie Lee Curtis (2017/18)

40 years later, SHE comes home.

MASSIVE news to end the week as Blumhouse has dropped the bombshell that Jamie Lee Curtis will return as iconic heroine Laurie Strode in David Gordon Green’s Halloween! With the news, an amazing photo teases the highly unexpected return.

The reveal was made on Twitter, where Blumhouse also confirmed that Universal Pictures will release the film, simply titled Halloween, on October 19, 2018.

Same porch. Same clothes. Same issues. 40 years later. Headed back to Haddonfield one last time for Halloween,” Jamie Lee Curtis tweeted.

Gordon Green’s Halloween looks to continue the story from the first two (original) Halloween movies, presumably ignoring all the rest.

Set to begin shooting this Fall, the film was written by David Gordon Green and Danny McBride. Last we heard, John Carpenter may provide the score.

Carpenter will executive produce the new film 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.

    THIS IS NUTSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!! MY WEEKEND HAS BEEN MADE!

  • pablitonizer

    THIS MADE MY FUCKING DAY!!! OMG! Never thought like EVER that Jamie will return to Halloween for one last time to face Michael! Thank you god, thank you jamie, thank you john!

  • Micah Unice

    So…it IS a traditional sequel?

    • pablitonizer

      Apparently is a direct sequel to H2, so… I’m not sure…it’s kindda confusing. Either she didn’t die in resurrection and she’s returning to haddonfield or they’ll ignore everything after H2 (Including H20) and this would be “H3”

      • Micah Unice

        I really hope it’s the latter.

      • The Duchess of Milton

        It says it’s a direct sequel to HALLOWEEN 2.

        • pablitonizer

          Yeap, according to the official Halloween site says “Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.” which means Michael is 61 years old… weird! yet so fucking excited for Jamie on board

          • I hope they work his age in, maybe that way he won’t have superhuman strength like he did in the other sequels

          • pablitonizer

            yeah, let’s pray. The script must be very good or the paycheck gigantic for Jamie to return. She clearly stated she wouldn’t be in another halloween since Laurie cannot live in a limbo of nightmares unless a big paycheck was offered. And I also think Carpenter’s name on it helped

      • It is the sequel to H2 (1981). That was confirmed several months ago…

    • john

      Nothing traditional about the Halloween franchise. This could be yet another alternate track in the continuity.

        • john

          “There’s no ‘could’.”

          A) Awfully abrupt and abrasive way to respond.

          B) There’s nothing in your link that specifies exactly what their plan is. The only comment that in any way addresses it actually even hedges by saying, they’re focusing “MAINLY” on “the first two movies.”

          C) Do I think they’ll be ignoring all sequels after 2? Yes. Do we actually have a solid confirmation of what’s happening yet? No.

          • No disrespectful tone was intended. But, to quote the source, “You know, it’s not a remake. It’s actually, it’s gonna continue the story of Michael Myers in a really grounded way. And for our mythology, we’re focusing mainly in the first two movies and what that sets up and then where the story can go from there.”

            This Bloody-Disgusting article and other news sources have also picked up on that this will be a sequel to Halloween II.

          • john

            My fault. Text isn’t a great form of communication or reception.

            I totally agree this will likely be a 3rd branch of the Halloween ’78/Halloween II tree.

            Guess I’m still getting used to the idea that Jamie Lee’s backtracking on her H20 finale– the cameo in Resurrection was contractual and has been easily ignored for quite some time.

    • They confirmed that this was a sequel to Halloween II (1981) back when it was announced. This is nothing new.

      • Jay

        They announced it quite a few months back. Things can change. H20 was going to be one thing. Then JLC signed on and the script changed. Same thing here. Now that JLC has signed on the script could be changing again to suite her storyline.

        • pablitonizer

          That’s true…nobody saw Jamie coming to this one or even Universal taking care of it….I believe many things are changing now, and we know the studio decides what path to follow

          • It’s not changing. John Carpenter owns the rights and is producing, and David McBride has already stated his passion for doing a sequel to the classic Halloween films. After all, they literally just cast Jamie Lee Curtis and this announced to be a sequel to the Carpenter films from the very beginning.

        • It won’t. At this point, they’ve made it clear that this is the sequel to the two John Carpenter films. Hell, Carpenter himself is producing, owns the rights, and possibly is doing the score. And Danny McBride and David Gordon Green have already expressed their passion for doing a sequel to the classic Halloween, with Carpenter himself hyping up how much they “get it” (his words).

          The chances of them backtracking on this are very, very slim.

  • A2VL

    Well I didnt expect that at all

    • pablitonizer

      I knaaaaaaaw! LIke…OMG, didn’t see this one coming at all! I thought Jamie was so over Halloween after the messy Resurrection

  • john

    Man.. what a franchise…

    TRACK 1: 1 – 2, 4 -6
    TRACK 2: 3
    TRACK 3: 1 – 2, 7 – 8
    TRACK 4: Remake, Sequel to Remake
    TRACK 5: 1 – 2, 9(?)/11(?)/3.1(?) — What is this installment of this Choose Your Own Adventure franchise numbered?

  • Cappy Tally

    …holy shit

  • le4therfac3

    i could literally cry. this is the most amazing news EVER!

  • C-3PO’s

    Great rack.

    • The Duchess of Milton

      Spoken like a man who last close look at a “rack” was probably his mother’s.

  • As hyped as I am for this film, this is actually disappointing news. Halloween H20 already went this direction, and I was hoping that the new film would finally move away from the “Michael hunting his family” story angle.

  • Boydon

    reductive. continuing the family storyline is about the most predictable thing they could have done. not holding my breath. they should have ignored H2 and gone back to the basics: psycho killer on the loose stalking babysitters for no reason what so ever.

    • Triangulove

      You just got done saying they shouldn’t be predictable, then went ahead and said they should’ve done the most obvious and predictable thing…..

      • Boydon

        lol what? oxymoron much? given that the sister storyline was added to appease the studios and that every sequel (and those abominable remakes) features the said storyline, going back to the original idea would have been just about the freshest thing anyone could have done. but noooooo, let’s have him chase his sister one last time and maybe she’ll chop his head off this time for real and not the paramedic’s. sigh.

  • jasonlives1986

    Only part here I don’t like is “ignoring the previous movies. F the two remakes.

    And she walked away from this franchise not once but twice. So she must be hard up.

    And I don’t like the title.

    Other than that I’m interested to see where this goes

    • The Duchess of Milton

      Yeah HALLOWEEN is an awful title. #LOL

      • jasonlives1986

        Jamie Lee curtis already starred in a movie titled Halloween.

        You can’t make the same movie about the same thing with the same title.

        There needs to be a subtitle. This will be the third Halloween movie just titled Halloween. As if the timeline isn’t fucking fucked up enough

        • The Duchess of Milton

          It’s obviously not “the same movie about the same thing.”

          • jasonlives1986

            My man. It is.

          • Nicolas Caiveau

            We’ll probably all end up calling it H40.

        • MODOK

          “Halloween 11: Back to Halloween III”

      • We don’t know what the title is…

        • pablitonizer

          It’ll probably be haIIIoween

          • Maybe. Personally, I doubt they’ll use “3” in the title (after Rob Zombie’s H2, it would just confuse the general audience). My best guess is that they’ll call it Halloween: [Insert subtitle here], or maybe even Michael. That’s just my prediction.

          • pablitonizer

            yes, the won’t use the 3 on the title. And I doubt they change the name of the franchise from Halloween to Michael, they did it with F13 I know but I don’t think John Carpenter would want that…we’ll have to wait and see

    • 1. We don’t know what the final title is yet.

      2. You actually expected it to connect to the remakes? That series is over. Even Dimension Films’ cancelled Halloween Returns wasn’t going to have anything to do with the remake series.

      3. It’s a sequel to the two classic John Carpenter films (Halloween and Halloween II). This upcoming film is doing the exact same thing as Halloween H20 by ignoring the “Cult of Thorn” story from Halloween IV, 5, and 6. But if you want to complain because Busta Rhymes never said “Trick or treat, motherfucker” in this universe, go right ahead.

      • jasonlives1986

        No I didn’t expect it to be connected to those trash was remakes

  • CR

    Halloween and Texas Chainsaw Massacre have the most dicked-with, retconned, clusterfucked continuity issues I’ve ever seen in a horror franchise.

    • pablitonizer

      I love halloween with all my heart, and I dont’ care about TCM. But I’m gonna have to agree with you hahaha

  • I am thrilled with this news. Thank you to all involved for making it happen. Can’t wait!

  • Michael Voorhees

    Lost all my hype

    • Yeah, the Laurie Strode storyline has already been concluded, and done to death in Halloween H20, Halloween: Resurrection, and the Rob Zombie films. Even Halloween 4 and Halloween 5 had Michael hunting Laurie’s daughter.

      I was really hoping for a new story set in the same universe as the first two Halloweens. And didn’t Danny McBride claim that Michael was less scary when they revealed that Laurie is his sister? Why are they bringing this back, then?

  • mark long

    Halloween: Activia?

  • Demetra

    I thought Laurie died in Resurrection?

    • Nicolas Caiveau

      Apparently, it’s yet another timeline… But maybe they’ll pretend she just survived being stabbed in Resurrection. Some people survived worse (no, Michael doesn’t count)

  • Brad Tyler

    This news is AWESOME! Halloween is my all time favourite horror film and I adore part two. I feel we might finally be getting that missing ‘true’ Halloween 3. With John Carpenter and JLC involved… I’m SOOOO stoked!

  • Obviously for this to make sense they would have to ignore Resurrection (as should everyone lol) but it’ll be a shame to ignore H2O too. It might have had too much of that 90s Scream influence but otherwise it was one of the better sequels.
    EDIT: Although I guess it’s easier to ignore H2O completely than to try getting around that ending (which Resurrection tried to do)

    • pablitonizer

      Agree, H20 was the film that made me love this franchise so much. It has a very special place in my heart despite its flaws. Don’t even wanna talk about resurrection… but I guess we’ll have to start gettng used to a brand new timeline?

  • mark long

    In all seriousness, beyond the greatness of the original on its own, what I love about the series, is the way you can take it down so many story lines. Every October, I watch 1,2, H20, Res. Then 1,2,4,5,6. Followed by RZH 1 &2. Using 3 as a sort of pallet cleanser, in between each, lol. I even love watching the fan films on Youtube, just to see people’s ideas of how the story lines can evolve. I certainly understand why people would feel the opposite, I just think it is a fun thing about the franchise and one of teh things that makes it so talked about. Will be interesting to see how JLC plays in. If only we still had Donald Pleasence!

  • Michael Singer

    WOW!!, I didn’t expect her to come back. So does this mean that they’re just ignoring H20 and Resurrection now? Because while it’d be disappointing in H20’s case, Resurrection already kind of ruined that story anyway.

  • Jay

    I doubt they will ignore H20 and Resurrection. They will just state Laurie survived at end of Resurrection from her stab and fall. And pick up from there probably. Pretty cool she came back for H20 twenty years later and coming back for H40 forty years later.

    • pablitonizer

      wouldn’t it be cool “Halloween H40” epic hahaha… but since the title is simply “Halloween” then I think they’ll pretend H20 and resurrection was just a bad dream.

    • Khy

      They made it clear this will be after H2 and besides, why not? Easier just to start from H2. They don’t have to deal with any explanations about how she survived a shitty movie every one hates any way.

  • Nicolas Caiveau

    Even if they won’t mention H20, I’ll try to make it work as a single continuity, simply assuming she survived her fall in HR. I don’t like retcon. If the official title is just “Halloween”, I suggest to unofficially rename it H40 !

  • Papa_spoosh

    A lot of people seem to know exactly what it mean. Apparently it’s even predictable? Lol we have no clue what role she will play and it’s absolutely awesome that she’s on board for whatever the role might entail..

  • James Tillotson

    THEY are ignoring H2O? Ugh so disappointed in that one aspect but still happy about a return to form. H2O will always be may favorite sequel.

  • DEIMOS

    Great news! I hope the film will live up to this superb actress.

  • Bob Marshall

    This is amazing!

  • Trav

    So, this movie takes place just after Halloween 2?

    • Bill Agans

      Yup.

      • dukeblues

        Not Just after. 40 years after. But it should be a direct sequel.

        • Bill Agans

          It’s a sequel to Halloween 2.

          • Nicolas Caiveau

            Yes but he asked if it takes place just after. The movie will obviously not take place in 1978 as Jamie Lee is 60… It’s a sequel to H2, taking place 40 years later.

      • Trav

        So, wouldn’t Laurie Strode still be a teenager in this upcoming movie? Well, maybe it’s taking place several years after Halloween 2, and just ignoring the rest.

        • Bill Agans

          Not sure how exactly they’re doin it, they just said it takes place after Halloween 2 & they’re ignoring the other sequels.

  • Tony Harley

    This makes me happy but I wish we could get a movie with both Laurie and Jamie.

  • Cappy Tally

    Guys. What if Laurie is the new Loomis?

    • pablitonizer

      epic as fuck! She’s treating a patient with the same characteristics as Michael…when her past returns

      • Cappy Tally

        I was thinking maybe she picks up where the good doctor left off. She’s spent years trying to track Michael down, and she’s the one trying to warn everyone about him.

        • pablitonizer

          well, the good doctor left on the thorn cult shit… so I don’t think Laurie would go that way hahaha maybe she becomes the dr loomis, that sounds really cool to me!

          • Cappy Tally

            No thorn cult shit, hahaha. But I think it’d be logical for her to be the new Ahab (to borrow a term from Behind the Mask).

          • pablitonizer

            or what if this is kindda like Wes Craven’s new nightmare…a meta-halloween? weird…so many possible ideas hahaha I’m so thrilled with this news, it made my weekend

          • WondrousPoop

            No.

    • I’m not too happy about Curtis returning (they’ve already done that storyline to death), but I have to admit – THAT would be pretty cool. Now, I hope that’s what is happening.

      Laurie Strode being the new Sam Loomis, with a brand new main protagonist as Michael starts killing other people without an obvious motive (like in the original Halloween).

      • Cappy Tally

        That’s just it: Laurie returning doesn’t automatically mean rehashing that storyline. Do you really expect them to just…kinda sorta remake Halloween H20 like that?

        • That’s why I’m hoping you are right on this one 🙂

          • Cappy Tally

            Even if I’m wrong about this specifically, the odds that they’re going to just retread on old ground are slim.

        • Saturn

          So it’s been almost TWENTY (holy shit!) years since H20 – perhaps this time around it’s Laurie Strode out to stop Michael killing her grand-kids.
          Of course John still thinks mommy is a little wacko – because really, as if uncle Michael is still kickin’ it…….

          • Cappy Tally

            Uh…wha? This isn’t set after H20.

          • Saturn

            Who knows?
            It may skip H20 and be a direct sequel to the original and possibly second film, with Laurie Strode having forgotten about Michael, as it’s been so long, but then he returns to take out her Grand-kids.

      • Brey Compton Arriaga

        Good thought, hope they bring more scream queens to the mix, fingers crossed!

    • crispin

      Or the new Michael????

      • Creepshow

        Even worse.

    • Creepshow

      Most still won’t care?

  • The Night King

    First person to say “i think they should return to the Thorn storyline” gets the living piss beat out of them.

    • Kristoffer Groves

      I think that at the end when Michael is about to finally stab Laurie to death, the Silver Shamrock commercial should come on, and Mikey’s head should turn into snakes and stuff.

      • Wes Draven

        That. Is actually a really cool idea.

  • Khy

    So H40? Ha.

  • Khy

    *All of the internet talking about Pennywise*

    Michael Myers: Hold my beer!

    • Saturn

      Pennywise The Dancing Clown : Bloody hell Mike, can’t I have my 5 minutes of fame before you spit your dummy out – mummy’s boy!

    • Trav

      Nope, this is still Pennywise’s Halloween. Micheal gets his turn next year to be back in the spotlight. I love both the Halloween franchise and IT, so I’m not complaining.

  • RollingBeatles

    H20 and Resurrection aren’t bad movies, especially as far as horror sequels go (ok Resurrection isn’t that great or nearly as good as H20, but its not terrible). Though I guess it makes sense to streamline the series and make a complete trilogy with the original two films. Still, wonder how they’re going to play this off. Although, they haven’t actually said they’ll be ignoring H20 and Resurrection, right? They could say she survived the stabbing/fall…or just ignore Resurrection but not H20. We’ll see.

    • pablitonizer

      yeap, I agree they’d have to continue after H20…but in that case Josh Harnett (her son) should be cast as well or talk about him…. but I don’t know, it’ll force people to watch Halloween, H2 & H20 to have an idea of what’s happening…u know what I mean?

      • RollingBeatles

        Yeah, although they could focus on the first two and sort of glaze over H20. Who knows.

        • dukeblues

          H20 and Rez were shit. Plain and simple cheap teen drama garbage. Let this be a realistic movie with likable characters. Not Dawsons Creek with butcher knives. Let’s hope its basically the new H3 and not 9

    • Khy

      I think it would be easier to just pick up after 2. With H20 they would once again have to deal with the whole decapitation thing. Resurrection did the best it could with explaining that but it was still quite silly.

  • The Night King

    Jamie Lee is looking better. Last time we saw her she was hawking some yogurt that helps you take a shit.

  • James Tillotson

    Anyone else notice her tweet read, ..”one last time.”?

    • pablitonizer

      yeap! She cannot be Laurie forever…she’s almost 60 and Michael is 61…. this is turning into The golden girls halloween massacre… maybe she dies in this one (one more time) or Michael dies…

      • Khy

        LMFAAAAAO. The Golden Girls Halloween Massacre omg
        You are horrible haha

        You win 2017

    • Yahauntas

      Right. Therefore just kill Laurie off one more time and make this go into “Friday the 13th” territory. Jason kills campers for fun so Michael should be able to kill babysitters/teens for fun.

      • King Jordyn

        awesome idea

      • John Connor

        Like Halloween Resurrection!

  • Khy

    But the real question is- WHERE THE FUCK IS BUSTA RYMES?

    • Rohan

      Busta Rhymes? My guy, I’m waiting for Uncle L to make a comeback to the genre.

  • Christian

    Holy S***. This is awesome.

  • Khy

    The only thing that would make this even better if Danielle Harris returned as her now adult daughter.

    New continuity- I doubt anything after H2 will be kept. So maybe. haha.

    • I would literally cry from joy.

    • This is so brain-fucky theyd be better off billing this movie as an anthology. I love Harris though, so I wouldn’t hate this news. I like Scout too, maybe we could get her a spot too LOL

    • Flu-Like Symptoms

      Now that I would be on board with. Imagine her showing up out of nowhere late in the film when Laurie is about to get killed and saving her mother. She whacks the fire out of Michael and Laurie and Jamie reunite in a touching scene. Then of course Michael sits up and the two of them have to survive together in the final moments.

    • Mr. Red Right Hand

      honestly – i think Harris should’ve returned as Strode and have Jamie make a cameo. Like make this new entry a 1980s themed set continuing immediately where the sequel left off. that would’ve been cool.

  • Dave

    This is dumb. Also, they said that this new halloween wouldn’t have anything to do with any sisters and what not. What this is going to do is bomb. Way to go!

    • Yeah, Danny McBride stated that Michael was much scarier before we knew that Laurie was his sister (when he didn’t have a motive). And now, they are bringing back Laurie in a sequel to Halloween II (1981)? He also stated Michael won’t be supernatural, despite the fact that he was supernatural in the original. I mean, WTF?

      I’m hyped for this, but the more they announce, the more I’m starting to scratch my head. As for it bombing, it won’t. It’s a Halloween film, and it’s getting all kinds of fan hype and media attention. Trust me, it will make money.

      • Creepshow

        It smells like an “old balls” dirty bomb.

  • Wes Draven

    I like the first Halloween, I like Jamie Lee Curtis. But I can’t say I really like this news. I know this film already seemed like an homage or love-letter, but now it feels a little like Halloween H40. It might make for a fun, fan-service film, but I don’t think that it will really bring Halloween back for a new generation.

  • Justin Graves

    So Jaime Lee Curtis is returning to her iconic role of Laurie Strode in the new Halloween movie. Yes!!!! How coo…oh wait.
    Wait….so it really IS retconning parts 7 and 8, which themselves retconned parts 4, 5 and 6? This after we already ignore the remake and its sequel? At some point Hollywood is going to either have to stop making movies that suck and can’t be built upon or stop asking us to ignore everything we devoted our time and money to, thus wasting either, so they can line their greedy pockets off the backs of fans. It’s gotten kind of ridiculous at this point.

    And when I say movies that I suck, just let it be known that I like Halloween 4, 6 (the moodier, atmospheric director’s cut) and 7. 5 has some moments and 8 is a travesty.
    But their stories can all easily accommodate a 9th film (part 4 establishes that Strode “died” in an accident which could be explained away as her faking her death, as revealed in 7) if such a fan, one like me, prefers to to think that the past several decades of supporting a franchise was not a waste of time.
    Strode’s unceremonious offing in 8 could even be written off as another fake out, since no body was revealed to Myers or the audience. BUT if this film is going to come out and blatantly state that the past 30+ years did not happen (or make it so those films cannot be accommodated) then, no, it can suck my left one and eat my middle fucking finger

    • The_Gentleman

      Whiner

  • Sky Commander

    YES GODDAMMIT YES FUCKING A THIS IS AWESOME!!!!

  • dukeblues

    Let’s hope its better than that abomination H20. Also makes me think they may try to kill off MM again….

  • dukeblues

    So this makes MM 60+ years old? Thats cool but I hope its not a teen drama like H20

    • Khy

      Meh, not like he’s 90. Besides, not like he runs anyway haha.

      • Nicolas Caiveau

        If Harrison Ford can still play Indiana Jones over 75, then Michael Myers can still kill teens at 60 !!

  • Brey Compton Arriaga

    HOLY DAMN!!! This is the best news I’ve ever heard, so I guess they’ll ignore H2O or continue after that? U NEVER KNOW and I guess this will be the real return Jamie wanted to make back in ’98 with Carpenter on board, OMG THAT’S 3!!! <3

  • Michael Voorhees

    1.They said they will move away from the family story-This contradicts that
    2.They said it will be new and fresh-This contradicts that
    3.They said that Michael will be mortal,if this is a sequel to H2-This contradicts THAT

    All in all,this news is disappointing

    • Khy

      Bow down, the queen is back!

    • Exactly what I have been saying. I have been so hyped for this film since it was announced, but the more they reveal about it, the more I have to ask – WTF?

    • Hell, Michael Myers was supernatural in the original as well. He survived getting constantly stabbed and shot, he knew how to drive a car with zero training, ETC. That movie was dropping all kinds of hints that Michael Myers was supernatural.

      • dukeblues

        Easy explanation is the sprinklers came on in the hospital and put the fire out that he was engulfed in. That’s how I would do it…. Or maybe he pulled an H20 and put the mask on Loomis and it was Loomis who came walking out of the hospital room engulfed.

        • He was blind, and in the room when the explosion happened. And that doesn’t explain his superhuman invulnerability or his other “powers” he displayed in both Halloween II AND the original.

          John Carpenter himself is also quoted as saying, “He’s supposed to be a force of nature. He’s supposed to be almost supernatural.” So any explanations that the new movie could give would really, really be reaching.

          • Cappy Tally

            Indeed, Carpenter did say that. He’s also involved with this new film and has given it his stamp of approval. So what’s more likely? That after YEARS of saying exactly that, Carpenter changed his mind and is now contradicting himself? Or could it be that everyone’s worrying over nothing and Michael’s curiously unnatural sense of survival will be fairly intact after all?

          • We won’t know until we see the movie, but what we do know is that Danny McBride’s statements seem quite contradictory to what happened in the original films and what Carpenter has said. Also, the remake series already went the human route.

          • Cappy Tally

            Dude walked off a point-blank bullet to the head, so he wasn’t THAT human in the remakes. Either way, I think his statements need to be taken apart and reassembled a bit. I’d say they’re poorly worded, not necessarily contradictory. It would seem to me that what he meant to say is that OVERT, BLATANT supernatural aspects are gone. Mike’s not going to be some super-powered pagan cult assassin this time around. Nor is he going to be a ten-foot-tall bear man who could probably throw a truck over his head.

          • In regards to him surviving the bullet to the head, that has more to Rob Zombie’s lackadaisical attitude towards Halloween II, which he almost didn’t return for. The DVD audio commentary is one of the worst things I have ever watched; Rob Zombie literally said something along the lines of “Maybe the bullet grazed his head. Who cares?” Sadly, that was his attitude toward most of the commentary…

          • Cappy Tally

            His second one makes more sense as a sort of deconstruction of slasher sequels. It’d hardly be the first time a slasher sequel brought its villain back by defying all sense of logic with a “who cares?” attitude. I haven’t watched the film with the commentary yet but as I recall the film, it would seem to me RZ was more interested in the other characters anyway, in showing how the survivors dealt with the traumatic events of the first film.

          • There’s another instance in the commentary where he calls out a mistake in his own movie and then says “If you noticed this, you need to get a life.” The entire commentary, you could tell that he really didn’t want to be there. Most audio commentaries for movies I don’t like help me understand what the filmmakers thought process was when creating the film. The audio commentary for Halloween II did the exact opposite, by making opinion even worse.

            If you revisit the film, my recommendation is to do it without the commentary.

          • Cappy Tally

            To be fair, consider who he was working with. Dimension is notoriously terrible when it comes to horror films, whether it’s making them or distributing them. As I recall they rushed his production to meet a pre-determined release date and cut his budget several times. My memory may be a little foggy on the details but I do recall it wasn’t a pleasant experience, making that film.

          • That’s true.

          • Matheus Martins

            ” the remake series already went the human route”

            And it didnt work.

          • At the very least, McBride’s statements seem quite bizarre. Doesn’t necessarily mean the film will be bad but, at the moment, I’m left to scratch my head in wonder.

        • Cappy Tally

          Sprinklers in the hospital don’t work when we literally saw him walk out on fire, but if anyone thinks they’re going to bring Michael down to 100% human mortality, they’re not seeing things clearly.

      • Saturn

        Well the car issue was covered in Halloween 6.
        Although I do agree about the supernatural aspect – although you could argue that when he was stabbed in the face with the coat-hanger it missed his eyeball (is possible, my uncle around 2 years back had a nasty slip and fell onto a pointed broom handle which went straight into his eye socket, but miraculously due to it being more pointed than rounded off it missed puncturing his eye and went to the side – he was a reet lucky bastid), and Loomis could have missed due to poor aim – it seemed that he wasn’t too comfortable with a gun.

        • I don’t recall them saying anything about how he drove a car in Halloween 6 (if it’s the Cult of Thorn thing, that explanation doesn’t apply), but I recall Loomis shooting him at least two or three times in the chest. And if we are going by the sequels after Halloween II that aren’t canon (or even H2 itself), there certainly is no way he isn’t supernatural.

          • Saturn

            Here we go, the explanation of how Michael can drive :

          • I wonder if he passed the test, XD

        • Nick Greeley

          H6 never mentioned Michael’s driving. That was in a script but was never said in either version lol

          • Saturn

            Are you sure?
            I’m pretty certain it was mentioned in H6 that it was Dr. Terence Wynn who provided lessons.
            Unless of course we’ve been Mandella’d.

            I haven’t watched the movie in some time, so perhaps I’m mistakenly just adding 2 + 2 together due to the scene in Halloween where Loomis says to him something like “well someone must of taught him to drive!” and then the reveal about Dr. Wynn in H6.

    • Cappy Tally

      1. How do you know Laurie is going to be the focal point? My theory (THEORY) is that she will be the new Dr. Loomis. The Ahab, the Van Helsing if you will, the one who is trying to hunt Michael down and warn everyone before it’s too late. A supporting role, in other words.

      2. Supposing my theory is correct (AND IT IS JUST A THEORY) you would be wrong. In fact, as long as theories like mine are even POSSIBLE, you’re already wrong, because “new and fresh” is only contradicted so long as Laurie is placed in the exact same role she was in H20…and you do not know that that’s what’s going to happen.

      3. Read between the lines, man. They’re just saying he’s not going to be an overt supernatural threat powered by pagan magic or whatever.

      • “My theory (THEORY) is that she will be the new Dr. Loomis. The Ahab, the Van Helsing if you will, the one who is trying to hunt Michael down and warn everyone before it’s too late. A supporting role, in other words.”

        I’m really hoping that’s what happens, because that sounds like it could be pretty interesting as a story. In contrast, retreading the same story for the fourth time doesn’t sound like something worth seeing.

        • Khy

          There’s no way I can see Jamie being the focal point. Sure Halloween fanatics will turn out for Jamie Lee Curtis alone, but I’m sure they’re going to want to reach out to the general audience with more to offer than “Michael going after his 62 year old baby sister again.”

          There’s a lot more to this movie than that. Has to be.

        • Cappy Tally

          Do you really think they would be able to land someone as picky and tough to please as JLC by pitching her a role where she simply gets to retread on old ground? Part of the reason this news is so unexpected and mind-blowing is because for years, she seemed like she’d never want to do another one of these, and I have a good feeling that sentiment came from the belief that she wouldn’t be given anything interesting to do. That’s usually why actors say no to reprising roles like this.

          Whatever role she has in the film, I highly doubt it’s going to be a retread of past films.

      • Rohan

        I love the term Ahab. Such a great nickname for a familiar horror trope. Behind the Mask was such a great film, and that addition was just icing on the cake. Haven’t seen Ahab used online by people in discussion till now, that’s pretty cool that you brought it up. It seems I’m usually the only person to use it, lol.

        • Cappy Tally

          I toss in Van Helsing too for folks who are either not very well read in classic literature or haven’t seen BTM yet, but yeah, Ahab is a pretty good term for this archetype. I honestly prefer it to using Van Helsing that way because it furthers the misconception about what that character’s role in Dracula really was, and I really would prefer if people stopped making him an action hero because holy crap Channing Tatum is being looked at for the role now. But that’s a whole other discussion, heheh.

        • Saturn

          Ahab.
          GREAT band.
          Kinda depressing for many, but for what they do they do brilliantly.

      • Michael Voorhees

        We’ve had 6 movies with Laurie,it’s enough

  • Khy

    She should’ve changed it to “I’m back for one last paycheck…”

    But get that money, queen, I’m not mad.

    • gabriel

      hehehe I guess all the Dannon Activia paychecks finally ran out. I hope she brings back the long hair for this one though. Otherwise all I will think of when I see her are those commercials

    • Tan Shearer

      Or maybe she enjoys the role and she’d love to revisit it after so long.

  • drew

    That mask is perfect! I hope they use it! Could be PS though..

    • Khy

      And not ten different ones like H20 haha

      • drew

        exactly! That sucked

        • pablitonizer

          the pic makes me wonder if they have all in pre-production already …the mask chosen and even the michael myers actor as well

          • Khy

            Well it’s filming this fall, which is basically here, and Jamie is signed on- so it goes to reason we might be hearing about more casting lock downs over the next few weeks. They appear ready to go.

  • James

    Interesting…

  • macguffin54

    Didn’t they say they were ignoring Halloween II, also, and the whole “sister” angle?

    • Roman

      not H2, but they will ignore the brother sister angle….so they will not be related in this film.

      • pablitonizer

        but if they’re acknowledging H2 then the brother-sister bond will be in this one too. Unless they’ll go like “Oh remember back in 81 when we say he was your brother, he was not”.. which sounds more silly than ignoring all 4 timelines

        • Cappy Tally

          I’m guessing what they mean is that the film won’t REVOLVE around that angle. She’ll still be his sister, but that won’t be a focal point of the plot.

        • Roman

          that is what both the writer and director said. earlier this year, they felt it took away from Michael being The Boogeyman, and even JC felt it was a HUGE mistake to make them kin. I’ll wait to see how they do it though. it will be interesting.

        • Roman

          the filmmakers have stated those 2 being related is being removed.

    • Nick Greeley

      Halloween Returns was going to ignore every sequel. This one ignores all after H2

  • Cali-Chainsaw

    This sounds like a bad idea to bring her back

    • Tan Shearer

      because….

    • Judge Satchmo

      I disagree with what you say, but shall defend to the death your right to say it.

    • Roman

      why?

  • The_Gentleman

    Just the fact that they are erasing H20 and RESURRECTION makes this worthwhile. Plus, the nostalgia factor is off the charts and you have to respect that. I’m 46. The original Halloween is my favorite film of all time. All of the sequels and whatnot are bad but I still have affection for them. Franchises like this thrive on nostalgia. This is a good move. I’m happy for her.

    • drew

      H2 1981 sucks?

      • GinsuVictim

        It doesn’t suck, but it’s fucking stupid.

        • Rohan

          Halloween 2 is an unnecessary epilogue to a fantastic film. As a slasher movie, it isn’t ok, but ultimately not needed. Halloween 3 on the other hand is where it’s at.

          • GinsuVictim

            Halloween 3 is my second favorite of the series. I don’t care that it has nothing to do with Michael Myers, it’s a great movie (with an AWESOME score!).

          • Tan Shearer

            Halloween IV is the best Michael Myers sequel.

          • Saturn

            I agree.

          • GinsuVictim

            I really enjoy it, no matter how ridiculous some of it is.

          • Judge Satchmo

            I really wish they stuck with the anthology idea. Sure we got Michael back after 3, but my god at what cost!

          • Christian Macauley

            Actually I don’t think Michael has been more menacing, creepy and formidable than in the original Halloween 2.

        • Michael Voorhees

          Halloween 2 is great,i like it nearly as much as the original

  • DukeStKing

    Brilliant.

  • Mike Lawrence

    Love it. Hope it’s legit

  • This might sound a little far fetched compared to the realistic terror of the original but what if the plot is Laurie trying to outsmart Michael before he can kill everyone? Kinda like Leslie Vernon where the news crew could predict all of his motives and tried to make the dumb horror victims stronger and smarter. I could see Laurie maybe protecting a town or a house that way, because shes spent so many years dealing with the first encounter. It would be like H20 but not exactly be about Jamie. More about the new cast. Whatever they decide to do im here for it.

    • Saturn

      Indeed, perhaps Michael believes she’s finally dead (due to the events of Resurrection) but she once again faked her death, and this time is taking the battle to an unprepared Michael……

    • Khy

      I think they have to go down that route. I mean, I’m ecstatic to see Jamie back in the role, but I’m also not looking forward to the usual “Laurie’s life is messed up by her fucked-up brother” plot device- we’ve seen that six different times (H1, H2, H20, HR, RZH1, RZH2).

      She has to be prepared, she has to be ready. I love the idea of while Michael is stalking a new teenaged girl and her friends, Laurie is stalking him. Then of course, it all collides in deranged glory as old and new generations intermingle in an attempt to stop Michael once and for all. This is actually a great way to end the series- Laurie and the new girl both kill Michael for good. The end.

      But who am I kidding, these movies will never stop. So even if they move on beyond this, they can have Laurie’s story wrapped up and follow future entries possibly with the new survivors. Though for me…H40 would be where I stop.

  • Jamie Lee Curtis is aging so well, holy shit.

    • Necro

      ‘Activia’!

    • Roman

      she’s fine as hell.

  • Aaron King

    You know everyone keeps saying this will be a sequel to 1 and 2 only, but has this really been confirmed? It’s possible they’re acknowledging more than those. Anyway, glad to hear she’s back.

    • Saturn

      Indeed, they could easily “canonise” it by being set after the events of Resurrection – turns out that Laurie didn’t die in the fall like we thought, but (like I’ve been suggesting for years now) perhaps she broke her back and was left in a wheelchair.
      So now she’s relearning how to walk, and is doing fine, but then her nobhead brother turns up to spoil her fun…..

      • Khy

        But why even bother? Why not just pick up when we last saw her alive? They wouldn’t even have to worry about explaining all of that. Unless this movie plays heavy on the events of Ressurection(not likely) then I don’t see why they wouldn’t make it easier on themselves and just set it after 1 or 2.

        • pablitonizer

          Maybe her grandson is turning 17 this time lol

          • Khy

            They can still give her a grandson in a new timeline set after H2(or H1).

            If nothing after October 31st 1978 happened- then you have 40 years of space to play with. Laurie could have had a family of her own in that time without trying to bring H20 and Resurrection into it.

          • pablitonizer

            Absolutely! If they decide to ignore all events after H2 then yes, I’m sure she built a life unless she kindda plays a dr Loomis role, which sounds interesting to me. In that case, dr loomis didn’t have a life but only devoted to Michael

          • Khy

            I like the idea of both- Laurie has built a life of her own with a family, maybe a husband, some grandchildren- but she also harbors a dark obsession with what happened 40 years ago. If this is especially set after H1, then it really would make sense because they never found his body after he fell off the balcony and perhaps every “anniversary” Laurie goes back to Haddonfield, hiding and waiting in the shadows, prepared to take down Michael but he never shows up….until now. Maybe Michael fixates on another young girl and begins stalking her and her friends but completely unbeknownst to him he’s being stalked by Laurie…

            That’s how you do a Laurie as Loomis storyline. I’d like to see Laurie 100% ready from jump- rather than hiding in fear waiting for Michael to find her – nope, she finds that bastard herself.

  • Part of the hype for me is Jamie returning but most of it is that we have hard evidence this is being made. Ever since friday the 13th you can’t hold your breath.

    • Khy

      I was not convinced. Especially with all of that “filming starts this fall” bs. But now that we have indeed gotten our first casting announcement and it is a biggie- I do feel much better lol.
      Look, even if the movie doesn’t end up being fantastic- at the very least it’ll be fun to see Jamie back.

  • Francesco Falciani

    holy fuck…i’m shocked.

    • Khy

      Surprise bitch, I bet you thought you’d seen the last of her.

      • Francesco Falciani

        Indeed. After resurrection

  • REC03

    i am literally SHOOK!

  • turk

    My first reaction was, “Cool!!!” But then it occurred to me that this makes Michael a near geriatric 59 years old. Is he going to be popping gout pills and using a walker while chasing babysitters?
    Unless they plan to “Princess Leia” Laurie Strode or just put her in some prologue or something. Kind of mixed on this one without more details.

    • Khy

      I really would like to know what kind of 59 year olds do you know.

      My father is pushing 60 and looks a good 20 years younger, is physically ripped, and I can barely keep up with him at times.

      All Michael does is hold butcher knives and stabs people, he’s not a fucking Olympic Ice Skater…

      • turk

        It’s painfully obvious the word “facetious” isn’t in your vocabulary. But still, Myers pushing 60? I’m not looking for Jack LaLanne as a serial killer. It just seems off for this to be taking place 40 years after part 2. I want my slasher icons to be in their prime. Or at least not on Social Security.

        • Christian Macauley

          I love how everyone is upset about Michael’s age but not the fact that Michael was dead as fuck at the end of Halloween 2 haha.

          • turk

            Eh, look at F13. How was Jason even alive? And why did he fake his drowning and hide out in the woods? Just have to allow some inconsistencies. But I can believe in a 60 year-old Mike Myers. I just don’t particularly care for the concept. But I’ll wait to hear more.

        • Khy

          “I want my slasher icons to be in their prime.”

          I want you to grow a brain.

          It’s a fictional character in a fictional movie in a fictional world that is not our own. It’s make believe dude. Michael’s age won’t have anything to do with the film. You’re acting like we’re going to see Michael taking Viagra pills in-between swings of his knife.

          You know what 59 year old Michael will do in this movie? Wear a mask, hold a knife, and kill teens. Exactly what he’s done in every fucking movie before.

          You know who will be giving a shit about the age of a fictional character that won’t have any bearing on the fucking story? No one but you.

          You’re literally creating something to complain about.

          • turk

            It’s a movie about a 60 year old super serial killer! Allegedly. That’s my point.
            But thanks for pointing out it’s not real, Captain Obvious. Must be a pain in the ass getting under doors with that pointy head of yours. But see, I enjoyed “Bubba Ho-Tep” as much as the next guy. But that was a comedy horror for a reason. Unless we start getting back into Myers being some mystical druidic demon again (which pretty much no one liked), then we are left with a very old and mortal Michael Myers. Doesn’t really work for me. And if you don’t like my opinion, you and your “ripped” daddy can lick the salty sweat off my sack.

          • Khy

            Lmao. Oh you sensitive little bitch. *pats*

            I really can’t wait until you see the movie and realize that NONE of this will even be mentioned in the film. Michael will be Michael, in a mask, and doing what he does best. I love how you aren’t bringing up the fact that in H20, Michael was in his 40s with the build of an 18 year old kid. Want to know why it wasn’t a big deal? Because it didn’t fucking matter to the story.

            This is a HALLOWEEN movie- Michael will be impossibly strong and have the ability to teleport from one place to the next as usual. So that’s why I do not understand why you’re complaining about something that won’t even have any effect on the film. Michael Myers isn’t even a man. He’s evil on two legs as established in the original film. Dude survived 6 straight shots and a fall off a fucking balcony but all of that is not supposed to matter because of this FICTIONAL character’s age? That likely won’t even be mentioned? What a stupid bitch you are.

            Have fun crying about a non-issue you made up in your head. And no thank you, save that salt sweat for that pathetic cunt you call a mother.

            You should’ve been a puddle on her ass cheek.

      • turk

        He’s technically human, albeit the embodiment of evil. He was supposed to be dead by fire at the end of part 2. All the druidic mystical stuff happened later in movies that this new film supposedly doesn’t acknowledge. So, are we now saying he does not age at all? Then we start getting back to magic. I tend to prefer the Mike that is just a really evil dude for no discernible reason.

        • Luca Vasto

          ok but in Halloween 1 and 2 they shoot and burn him, so Michael is not so human 😉

      Aren’t they trying to release it next year on the same day as the original, making it 40 years between films?

      • Khy

        Yup

  • Michael Howell

    she’ll always be dean cathy munsch to me

  • llcc1103

    Can we just get something new and original….. ? no reboot, remake, rehash, prequel. Just something new that becomes its own classic.

    • Khy

      ….Split, Get Out, Light’s Out, Don’t Breathe, The Conjuring, Insidious, Sinister, The Witch, You’re Next, The Neon Demon, The Shallows, The Invitation, The Green Inferno, The Babaduke, It Follows, Krampus, 47 Meters Down, It Comes At Night, Goodnight Mommy, The Blackcoat’s Daughter ect.

      There’s plenty of original horror films out there- get off your ass and go support them. There will always be reboot, remakes, prequels, and sequels- deal with it or don’t watch them. Put your money where your mouth is.

      Like someone standing knee deep in a well of fresh water complaining about there not being anything to drink.

      • James

        Pretty sure he wasn’t talking about a lack of original horror films but rather wanting a unique Halloween film that stands on its own.

        • Khy

          Nope, he just admitted he was talking about the former.

          • James

            Oh well then in that case I agree with you. Solid list of indie horror films you have there.

      • llcc1103

        Out of all the movies you just mentioned. Give me one, ONE that is actually scary, and has held up since its release as a terrifying classic? Krampus? Green Inferno? Lights Out? The overrated Witch? The only ones ill give you credit for mentioning is Split and The Conjuring. But rarely do we ever get films that stand up with the greatest anymore. There was a time when Halloween and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre level films were coming out a lot more frequently than now.

        • Khy

          Now you’re just being silly. No one can tell you what will be a terrifying “classic” in 15, 20, or 30 years. I was listing those movies to show you that they are ORIGINAL films that have gotten notable recognition in the last few years and those aren’t the ONLY ones. We are living in a thriving age where there’s a lot of original horror films, big and small, that are being released. You need to stop worrying about what’s “hot” and go and support the good original horror films that ARE overlooked, and aren’t on the same level of a Conjuring , A Split, or A Get Out.

          I’m less concerned with what will be a “classic” and more with if its just a good movie. Even if it doesn’t get that same coveted following as the The Exorcist or The Omen.

          There’s also a thing such as personal taste, there’s movies you may find horrifying that I would laugh at and vice verse. Also, reactions changes over time. The only person who can tell you what is scary is YOU. I’ve never found the original Halloween scary, not one bit, that doesn’t take away from the film because I know that’s simply me.
          All I’m saying is don’t be a studio sheep who does nothing but bitch on the computer about Halloween 11 and Saw 8 and Chucky 7, but then you run out and give them your money just so you can then sit down and gripe about there being no original horror.

          I said my peace, you can keep going on and on about “terrifying classics” but I don’t care. Go make one yourself.

          • llcc1103

            You make valid points but then my label me a “studio sheep” who just bitches on a computer (comments an opinion about a film on a film website) You also go on to say “then you run out and give them your money just so you can then sit down and gripe about there being no original horror.” I rarely go to the movies anymore.. I seek out indie unknown horror films like “Hellhouse LLC” Ill support and go see a film I’m interested in. I’m the opposite of a sheep in that regard. We can agree to disagree 🙂 Also, I do make movies. I had a short film in the 2015 Tribeca film festival. Check out my IMDB Luke LoCurcio Im working on a feature horror script that will hopefully get produced. Ill try my best! haha

          • Khy

            Bish, you better werk!

    • The chicken man

      Ok, you go find that, and report back. The rest of us will watch and enjoy this. Go!

  • Mattildo

    PLEASE get Nick Castle to play Myers again! And—for the first time—use a mask that actually looks like the original! There are plenty of fan-made masks that look a hundred times better than anything used in the sequels.

    • James

      The mask in that promo photo looks pretty solid.

    • Hack Snyder

      The mask in Halloween II (1981) was great. It was nearly identical to the original.

      • Nick Greeley

        It WAS the mask from the original lol. It looked different because it spent three years under the bed of a smoker

        • Mattildo

          That and the two guys who played him have very differently-shaped heads. Nick Castle has a narrow face, while Dick Warlock has a wider, more round face.

  • dukeblues

    Can we ban people who want this to be a sequel to the horrible Resurrection? Pretty please? In all seriousness, it needs to be a direct sequel to part 2. No teenage Dawsons Creek crap like H20 either. Let it be a serious horror movie, not a humorous one.

    • Khy

      I really don’t know why people keep trying to bring Resurrection into the discussion. Nobody wants to be bogged down by that bullshit.

      • jasonlives1986

        Because it’s canon?

        Look. It sucked. The movie was terrible.

        But if you’re gonna put It in the original timeline than Jamie Lee curtis is dead.

        H20 was awesome. And if they wanted to make a movie that ignored 8 then fine but not one that ignored 5 movies that are already canon.

        • Khy

          You really want to talk about what is “Canon” in a series with like eight different timelines?

          They already said this one will spring out of the original film. So no, there won’t be any Resurrection or H20. The timeline will be altered again. Why? Because no one wants to be bogged down with that bullshit as I’ve said earlier.

          They don’t exactly need the “timeline Gods” permission or a blood sacrifice to do so.

          They don’t “have” to do a damn thing.

          • jasonlives1986

            You can’t revise the timeline and the canon just cause you want to.

            You know that right?

          • Khy

            If you are the writer and director of a movie and in charge of the story- yes the hell you can.

            This isn’t Star Wars where there has to be long discussions and meetings about deciding what to keep or what to let go- this is a slasher franchise with a billion different timelines and realities. It’s confusing as shit.

            This next movie is a Blumhouse film and they’re not JUST making this for Halloween fans, they’re making this for the general audiences as well. It’s easier just for this one to pick up directly after 1(or 2) and play as a direct sequel to that especially considering the 40 year anniversary will be a draw in the marketing to get asses into seats and most people who haven’t given a shit about this franchise since the original will be able to come and enjoy it without any damn baggage or unneeded exposition about what happened to Laurie after she fell off some building 15 years ago in a really shitty sequel that no one even remembers.

            People can bitch about H20 erasing H4-H6 all they like, but it was all about making things easier. It’ll be the same with this one.

          • jasonlives1986

            You can’t alter it. I’m sorry. It’s impossible.

            Your logic suggests even that unless John carpenter is writing the Halloween movie then it’s not canon at all. So I guess only the first two are.

            Laurie strode died. It happened. It can’t be undone by ignoring it.

            If they wanna undo it by writing it into the movie than that’s canon. That works.

            This movie could be amazing but it’s cherry picking what matters and doesn’t. And that is annoying. Ignore it if you will. Don’t say it didn’t happen. Cause it did.

          • Khy

            You are more confusing than a David Lynch movie.

          • jasonlives1986

            Let’s just hope it turns out as well as which ever your fav sequel did.

            I’m an outlier anyway. Part 6 was my FAV******, then 4 and then 1.

            As films I know which one is clearly the masterpiece but I also have great love for the other ones.

          • Khy

            My favorite is H2.Then H4. But my guilty pleasure is H6 lol.
            I know, highly unpopular. But that’s my baby.

            My ranking is-
            H2
            H4
            H1
            H20

            H6
            H3
            RZH1
            RZH2

            H8
            H5

          • jasonlives1986

            6 is great. I loved it. My order goes

            H6
            H4
            H1
            H7
            H2
            H5
            H3
            H8

            Rz h2
            Rd h1

            My most controversial opinion is not liking 2. That movie feels off to me. I can’t quite explain it. And zombies garbage barely deserves my attention but I give part 2 the nod as it’s atleast rob zombies story and part 1 is just his abomination attempt on carpenter’s story.

          • Jake

            I’ve always considered Halloween a trilogy: Halloween, Halloween II and Halloween: H20. I looked at films 4 and 5 as there own story. I don’t count Resurrection as canon but a one-off for teens. I’m interested to see if H20 is included or just H1/H2.

          • dukeblues

            Making it for general audiences is the problem. Most people are morons. “It” was the biggest movie of the weekend and after seeing it, I can say it was crap. But, the general audiences liked it.

          • Khy

            Always gonna be about the money man. Name of the game.

          • PacMan Cereal

            It’s make believe. They can do whatever they want. It’s fiction. I know for me personally in my mind Aliens was the end of the series. Alien 3 and Resurrection never happened. Same with Halloween Resurrection. I am more than happy to dismiss H2O to enjoy this new sequel. I’ll still watch the “alternate timeline” sequels from time to time as some will always still be enjoyable. Your name is JasonLives you should understand retroactive continuity, alternate timelines, fictional characters and making the impossible possible.

        • dukeblues

          H20 was garbage. Terrible acting, terrible “Shape”, terrible masks, teen drama, etc. etc. Oh yeah, terrible music (fuc*ing orchestra music !?!?)

          • jasonlives1986

            Orchestra has always been a part if Halloween.

            … the damn theme songbird preformed on a keyboard bruh.

        • Cristal Swan

          Worth remembering though that the original timeline is 1-6 (-3). But yeah Laurie was dead in that timeline too. But like H20 they proved it was an easy write-around.

          I think they are gonna go off from the original H2 though.

          • jasonlives1986

            Well that’s my point. Since we never saw her death it was an easy canon fix to say it never happened. That it was faked.

            And I’m not exactly excited about making a proper part 9 starring Jamie Lee curtis.

            It’s just a bit confusing to have this movie be the “real” sequel to part 2 when part 7 was the “real” sequel to part 2 and for us to accept this one as the canon one and not the previous one for no good reason.

            We just have to accept that this movie is doing it’s own thing and I’m fine with it.

  • Stan Heck

    Lets Bring Back Dean Cundey

    • johnhurschelrunion

      AMEN!

    • Nick Greeley

      I’d honestly rather they brought back Brendan Trost. If RZH2 did anything better than the others, it was the cinematography

      • Stan Heck

        Not a fan of those films. However his “Halloween II” was great for the first 10-15 minutes.

        • Khy

          Jesus, the first 15 minutes of RZH2 was bliss for me.

  • DE@DFukk

    Jamie Lee perpetuating herself as a horror icon is silly to me. Yes she has some horror films under her belt, but she went on to do bigger better things. She’s no scream queen. Barbara Crampton is a scream queen. Scream Queens are people who didn’t go on to do much else. Scout Taylor Compton is more of a “scream queen”. I see people in online horror communities excited for the potential return of John Carpenter, but not Jamie. She wasn’t even that good in Halloween. She could barely stop laughing the whole time, and some of it made it into the film. She needs this new Halloween movie more than the fans do. Better than selling that poop yogurt. That stuff is good though. You can hardly taste the poop.

    • Michael Howell

      no lol jamie lee curtis is THE scream queen, scout taylor compton is most definitely not. scream queens survive multiple mass murders – and JLC has done just that, if not Neve Campbell is right there with her.

      • DE@DFukk

        I think we have a different definition of the same loose term. It just seems like the title given to actresses who appear often at cons and what not. Neve and Jamie don’t strike me like that at all. To me, the lady who played Stretch in TCM 2 is a scream queen. It’s all she’s got.

        • Michael Howell

          gotcha, your idea of a scream queen is someone with no career. i feel like it’s someone who’s cast in several slasher films.

          • Khy

            LMFAAOOO! OMG!

          • DE@DFukk

            People who are cast in multiple slashers still have no career! 😀

          • Khy

            oops Wrong reply

    • Khy

      Barbara Crampton doesn’t even like that term Scream Queen.

      Jamie Lee Curtis is iconic. One of the most iconic female characters in horror and cinema. The term was originated from Jamie herself- so newsflash, Jamie Lee Curtis is the one and ONLY Scream Queen and she will always be a horror icon.

      Just because she didn’t whore herself out to appear in every horror trash title for the past 40 years like Caroline Williams doesn’t make it any less true.

      • DE@DFukk

        Sorry I even meantioned the scream queen thing. And yeah, Barbara doesn’t like that shit, but Trekkies didn’t like being called Trekkies for a while. People don’t get to decide what I call them. I don’t like that my ol lady calls my member Peter Dinklage, so what can I do? To tell you the truth the whole scream queen thing is silly, but I don’t like that Jamie Lee calls herself it. It makes it worse to me if she invited the term. I just think it’s a title that belongs to B listers only. Jamie is not B list.

        • and you’re clearly Z list, you fucker.

    • michaeldal65

      Bigger and better things? Aside from Wanda, H20, and stealing True Lies with a killer performance, little else springs to mind. She was fantastic in Halloween 1, 2, The Fog, Road Games, Terror Train, and even the silly Prom Night. Perhaps you weren’t around then (I seriously doubt you were if you could place Compton, and whoever hears about her anymore, above Curtis) but she was known as The Scream Queen for quite a while. And as for the horror icon comment? Halloween, like Psycho, will live forever. It made icons out of Leigh, Perkins, Hitchcock, Carpenter, and of course, his star. And I don’t know which cut of Halloween you saw but I never once saw her nearly laugh, unless of course the scene called for it. Give the grass a rest buddy.

      • Khy

        Scout hasn’t done anything big since RZH2.

        I admit, the girl stays working, but she’s basically “direct to red box.” No wonder all she does is tweet about Halloween. She’d probably do a back flip if they ever asked her back. In the mean time we can see her in that sure to be terrifying classic- Ghost House…(Yeah…sarcasm. hardy har.)

        If Scout has a bigger status than Jamie then we are truly fucked.

      • DE@DFukk

        She got lucky cause her mom was in Psycho. I don’t place Scout Taylor Compton above JLC. Keep in mind that I don’t think being a scream queen is a place of honor (outside of communities like this one. I will not keep off the grass, Sir!

      • DE@DFukk

        Oh, and she laughs quite a few times in Halloween.

    • Goddammit, what a massive cunt you are.

  • Jordan KO

    H20 is Halloween 3 if you want to ignore everything. I’d rather they do something new with the character. Hell I’d take Josh Harnett back as the vengeful son hunting down Myers over this.

  • Graham

    Fantastic news!!! I can’t wait for this!!!

  • Edgar Pinecone

    Jamie Lee in another new sequel to H2 that ignores the rest? Just make sure you get the mask right this time, okay guys?

    • Khy

      If they can get the mask right for that promo shot, I’m they’ll get it right for the film.

      Finally, a Halloween movie with the original styled mask. Who knew it’d only take 40 years to see it again?

      • Edgar Pinecone

        Although it does look as though the mask was added to the shot in photoshop. But I won’t hold that against them. 😉

        • Khy

          Haha, the pressures on!

      • Simon Allen

        I’ve heard they are changing it for a Trump mask . 🙂

        • Saturn

          I dunno, I reckon a Killary mask would be scarier!

          • Simon Allen

            Lets face it ….they are all terrifying !

          • Saturn

            I’m lucky that I live in the UK, so didn’t have to vote in the last US Presidential elections – it really was kinda like having to choose between ebolaids and smallpox.

  • Noah B.

    When I saw Jamie Lee trending on twitter earlier,I was like oh no she passed away.I clicked on her name and I was like holy shit! She’s back! With Jamie back and maybe John Carpenter it’s already better then Rob Zombie’s remake.Im excited for this!

    • Khy

      LMFAO. That was oddly hilarious to me.

      Every time someone trends on twitter- I get terrified lol.

    • michaeldal65

      Anything’s better than Zombie’s thing. Remake! That word makes me laugh regarding that travesty.

      • gabriel

        Aren’t you special then

        • michaeldal65

          Very.

    • gabriel

      Not so fast.

  • Halloween_Vic

    Omfgggggg holy shit!!!! This is fucking insane honestly I did not expect this at all. I’m so dammm excited!!! I mean I guess ignoring the rest of the films after the original 2 films is a good thing I mean that in the most humble way cause I literally love every single film in the franchise it’s my all time favorite horror franchise clearly so of course I wouldn’t want any films ignored AGAIN. However this is epic I mean to have the original Scream Queen herself come back as Laurie Strode 40 damm years later is such a curve ball but in the best way possible. Oh man I can’t wait a whole dammm year fuckkkkkk me sideways man and can we talk about how perfect the mask looks in this picture? Jeez this is fucking perfect I needed exciting news like this. And to have Carpenter return and produce? Man oh man I hope they get this right and I have a feeling they will.

    • Khy

      Plot twist- Michael decapitates Laurie in the first 5 minutes. Rest of the movie centers around Kylie Jenner.

      • Halloween_Vic

        I would die lol

    • Upsetwith7days

      You know she dies in this, right? That was spoiled already. Good point, though.

    • Biscoito18

          This seems rather obscene ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

  • jasonlives1986

    One of people’s bigger complaints about h20 was ignoring the timeline and apparently they are gonna do it again.

    I’m all for her being in this and if this somehow acknowledges h20 than and ignores 8 than fine but it’s silly to bring back Jamie when it’s clearly just A cash grab. They killed her off at her request so she would never have to do another one and here she is. Boxed them in

  • umaneo

    I hope they five her the deserved farewell that H20 intended and that Resurrection promptly shat on.

  • Sky Ferreira

    Can’t wait for that Activia product placement!

    • khail19

      right there with you

      I can just see her chucking them at Michael, one right after the other.

      • GinsuVictim

        …made Undertow. It’s very intense.

  • Jake

    I have a feeling they will be ignoring Halloween II as well and making this another “direct” sequel to Halloween. I don’t know why else they would put her in her clothes from the OG movie? I think it’s going to go back to when no one knew “the shape” was Laurie’s brother.

    • Saturn

      The clothes will be just a publicity shot – it’s doubtful she will be wearing them in the movie.

  • Reece Catlin

    This is a dream come true of mine, I wonder how many millions she is getting paid, she said back in 2013 she would only do another Halloween movie for an extreme amount of money (to give to charity) I’m so happy, October 2018 can’t come soon enough!

  • Reece Catlin

    I actually love H20! H8 not so much

    • Jaysin Torres

      The only thing I didn’t like about Resurrection was Busta Rhymes in it. I love him as a rapper, but as an actor not so much.

    • Saturn

      H20 was pretty damn good – but the sequel?
      I H8 it!

  • Alex

    Hell yeah! This made my week.im super excited for it!!!!

  • Only thing I’d change is the title. Why give it the same exact title as the first? I’d imagine they’ll change this in time though.

    • Nicolas Caiveau

      It will probably be changed. Anyway most fans will call it H40 so…

  • BreeBennett

    OMG!! So unexpected!! This is amazing!!

  • Mike Lawrence

    I really am pumped for this, but how many times can they reboot a franchise (yes, I understand that it follows the original Halloween 1 and 2), and how many times can they simply call it Halloween before it becomes redundant?
    They’ve restarted Friday the 13th and scrapped it, they restarted Nightmare on Elm Street and scrapped it, they brought back Texas chainsaw and are now re-imagining it with a prequel, and now for the third time they’re restarting this franchise…
    What happened to the good old days when we just got sequels and there was an actual continuation of a storyline, rather than a series full of reboots and prequels??
    And as excited as I am for the original Laurie Strode to return, are we just supposed to forget that she was already killed off?? This series is such a hot mess. Lol.
    But really, I can’t wait to see it at the same time, now that this has been revealed…and I swear to God, if this falls through and gets cancelled like all the other attempts…

  • ToryK

    Oh, yes. Everything about this movie sounds right so far. And Jamie Lee Curtis looks just as gorgeous as she did 40 years ago.

  • Tony Sola

    I don’t see Carpenter and Blumhouse signing off on a basic H20 retread, and she’s wearing the same outfit at the Myers house, so I’m going to assume a little digital trickery will be added to make it look like JLC ala 1978, and she’ll be killed off in the opening scene. Or flash forward 40 years later after the opening scene. Either way I think this will pick up Immediantly after Halloween 1.

    • immediately after Halloween 2!!

      • Tony Sola

        I’m hoping that’s misinformation. Why start after part 2 if you don’t have to? Kind of a retcon within a retcon, having to once again wash over the fact that Michael was crispy fried at the end of H2. Plus I think there is a reason the publicity shot has her on Michael’s old porch wearing her 1978 clothes. Plus it would actually be cool to see it picking up right after the cliffhanger ending of H1. If it’s set in 2018 with JLC I don’t know how it doesn’t just retread H20.

        • stickytroll

          But then they’d have to bring Donald Pleasance back!

        • WondrousPoop

          LOL ROOOOOOOARING!

    • WondrousPoop

      LOL

  • RipleyCroft

    Has it really been confirmed that she dies? I thought if she is in the same house and clothes it would be a dream like in the beginning of H20 how she has nightmares of him. I hope they don’t kill her character off… again. Killing her off in 8 was one of the worst moments in the series. To this day I still acknowledge H20 as the last film.

    • Jaysin Torres

      From what I’ve read, this movie is going to be considered part 3 (the movie that fans never really got). Making H20 part 4 and Resurrection part 5, where she eventually dies. Maybe this will show or give an explanation towards the end of how she faked her death in order to continue on to H20. I’m so excited for this movie!

      • Saturn

        Hopefully she’ll wear the wig from H2 again!

      • Nicolas Caiveau

        No, the movie doesn’t take place begore H20, be serious, look at her age !! The movie takes place nowadays, it simply ignores H20 and Resurrection.

  • This is so good.
    Now, would be perfect if Robert Englund confirms to be Freddy Krueger for one last nightmare.

    • Ken Neth

      There was a movie called “Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare”

      • Nicolas Caiveau

        So what ? He got revived again in Freddy vs Jason and is still “alive” in the end. All horror sagas with a “final chapter” ended up having further sequels ! Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Saw…

  • Ocelot006 .

    And next year Halloween H20 is turning 20. Just calling it HalloweenH20H20

  • Ivy Julia Carey

    Fantastic news!

    I never imagined Jamie would return after her being frustrated with the contract clause in Resurrection.

    • Bob Marshall

      But she then returned for HR did they have her contracted for two movies?

      • Jaysin Torres

        Yes, she was under contract but she felt that H20 was the final film and didn’t want to come back. Since they forced her hand she wanted to end Laurie’s life I guess.

        • pablitonizer

          Here’ what happened with H20 (jamie said it herself) she wanted to do that movie with john and debra with the idea of ending michael and laurie”s story, to finally kill him. Both exited the project and few weeks before production Jamie finds out there’s a clause in the contract of Akkad which states Michael cannot be killed. So jamie wanted to leave the project coz the whole idea of it was not possible so they told her “what if you kill michael, and everyone else thinks you kill him (even the audience) and its him..the guy in the mask… would you accept that as long as in the next halloween you open the film with you in a mental institution and laurie gets killed” She accepted that in order to fullfill H20 story and to herself the story of Halloween ended in H20. Now she’s returning, so excited

  • Porst

    I’m glad they’re ignoring the rest. The whole thing with Michael Myers having some weird druid magic immortality thing keeping him alive was just silly and stupid.

    • Bob Marshall

      H20 already ignored those elements anyway. This just creates a third storyline that branches from HII. I’m excited!

      • Cyril Veakspey

        Actually, H20 ignored the events of the second part (carefully listen to the dialogues in the beginning), so it will be the 4th storyline (and also there is remake storyline)

        • Saturn

          If it had ignored part 2 then Laurie wouldn’t have known that Michael was her brother.
          She did – so it didn’t.

          • Aaron King

            Plus there’s a line about him burning.

          • Cyril Veakspey

            Oh yeah, I remember it too now.

          • Cyril Veakspey

            So they just completely fucked up with explanation of how Myers & Loomis survived that boom. Anyway, it’s a great movie, imo

          • Saturn

            I dunno, they explained Michael in pt 4 in that he was in a coma – and we know that he’s a supernatural being (it would be cool to see him without a mask, with his eyes gone, to show that he’s being guided by a force that does not NEED eyes) .
            In regards to Loomis, there have been many people who have survived a quick blast of fire, who were lucky enough to have survived with only burns (we assume the fire burnt for a long time – it could have been a quick blast and then the sprinklers kicked it).

          • Adam Clifton

            They fucked up the explanation with the 4th one. Loomis survived with burns and Michael got into a coma. It’s clear that both were killed in Halloween 2 (1981)

        • Adam Clifton

          Actually it didn’t. John Tate reminded his mother that she saw Michael burn in the fire. That didn’t happen until Halloween 2. So… that counts. Also, the whole Laurie is Michael’s sister plot? Started in Halloween 2

        • Bob Marshall

          No it didn’t, it took the sister angle which was set up in HII. They may have ignored a few things but it’s a direct continuation of Halloween II.

  • Ocelot006 .

    Am I blind or has BD still not posted anything on the Jeepers Creepers 3 trailer?

    • They’re obviously too afraid of too many pedo-comments. Right, Brad, you fucking idiot?

    • Meisha’s Taint

      Don’t you get us started Ocelot006…….Bloodydisgusting was getting paid by Salva to promote his movie and they got called out now they have to be careful

      This is great Halloween news don’t sour it with kid rape talk…..

    • Saturn

      They (rightfully) decided to do the right thing and stopped promoting the movies of a convicted child raping nonce.
      I applaud them for that.
      The trailer will be available elsewhere if you want to check it out.

  • Cristal Swan

    I’m in two minds about this.

    1. F*ck yes!!! So excited and I don’t care if this is a 3rd reboot/timeline or a continuation of resurrection. This is Jamie Lee Curtis and it will be my first experience of seeing her in the cinema in a Halloween movie – something I never thought I’d be able to experience.

    2. I love the franchise (it’s my favourite) but this could easily get confusing (especially to general audiences) considering all of the past history – two timelines already – of this character is already established. I’m concerned if this film will be able to say something fresh and better about the character than H20… or if will feel like a retread of what we’ve already seen.

    Either way I’m so much more keen than I was before the news and I’m very excited. If they bring Danielle Harris back to play her daughter with Jamie Lee Curtis… dam I don’t care how confusing it might seem; I won’t care by that point I’ll be too busy freaking out because I’d be so happy!! xD

    • Philip K

      Cristal dear, you got your panties all in a twist, but I agree. The Halloween movies for my penny, are the best of the slasher lot. So, next time, try the decaf and pull up a tile. Only 12 months to wait for Michael to terrorize Haddonfield once more.

    • Matheus Martins

      ”but this could easily get confusing (especially to general audiences)”

      Dont worry. I bet the general super-hero/force awakens/fast and furious/tiring ghost movies insidious,conjuring, annabelle audience dont even remember what happened in the first one, let alone remembering it had sequels.

  • Simon Allen

    Not to sound like a little girl …..but I just wet my pants !!!

    • The Night King

      The only way you could ever be mistaken for a little girl is if you shaved your beard.

  • Meisha’s Taint

    You assholes need to warn me before giving news like this. I read most of the title shit my pants and passed out for an hour. Amazing news just make sure we are sitting down before giving us news like that

  • Shane o mac

    AWESOME!!! Sounds like this Halloween movie gonna kick ass, can’t wait……..now if they bring back Danielle Harris

    • Jaysin Torres

      As much as I would love to see Danielle Harris in here, she won’t really exist as Jamie Lloyd anymore since they ignored all the rest of the movies. Now to play a totally different character AGAIN would be awesome.

      • Shane o mac

        Any way neccassary to get Danielle in the movie is fine by me

        • Saturn

          Perhaps Dr Loomis had a daughter, who is out for revenge……

    • Adam Clifton

      Non-fans would just be confused when they see dead Annie suddenly appear. Then again, this will be the third time in the series an instalment has gone by the title ‘Halloween’, so anything’s possible at this stage

  • Luca Vasto

    I’m tired of these sequels that cancel the previous ones. I love H20 and now they delete it?
    Maybe I’m the only one, but this project does not convince me

    • Frank Gambino

      Yeah. It’s like ‘oh we fucked that up. Let’s pretend that didn’t happen and just redo it’.

    • john

      To be fair, you love a film (H20) that “deleted” other films (H4. H5. H6).

      • Luca Vasto

        first of all H4 and H5 are good but not great, ok i adore H6 also, but H20 deleted chapter 4, 5 and 6 simply because
        it does not deal with the happenings of those movies, and anyway, even
        at that time, this thing disturbed me a lot. Now this film
        wants to officially erase everything, because an imported event like
        Laurie’s death in Halloween Resurrection can not be canceled. It’s stupid (IHMO) to create an additional timeline.
        One
        of the reasons I love the Child’s play franchise (for example) is that all the movies
        are connected, nothing deleted or anything else …..
        For
        this new Halloween it would be more correct than Laurie managed to
        survive Michael’s aggression in H8, maybe they can do that Laurie has
        been in coma for years, she awakens and Michael returns to charge to
        kill her.
        Of course it’s just my idea ;-), it’s still early to be able to look at the hypotheses, wait and see.

        • Flu-Like Symptoms

          I’m looking at it like we’re getting what would have happened had John Carpenter not decided to be done with Michael Myers and not made Season of the Witch. As a kid, I always wished he would’ve just stuck with Myers and furthered the story from II. It’s taken nearly 40 years, but that’s pretty much what’s happening.

  • Flash

    But H20 was a sequel to Halloween II that ignored all the rest? Surely they can’t do that again?

    • Flu-Like Symptoms

      John Carpenter wasn’t involved in H20. To him, this is a continuation of his story which left off at Part II. It will establish what has to be the 5th alternate timeline in the Halloween universe, but actually, since it’s the creator returning, to me, this will become the official canon and everything else, including H20, now becomes the alternate.

      • Flash

        Cool I didn’t think of it like that

        • Nicolas Caiveau

          Like many other fans, I made a headcanon, with a few theories to tie Halloween 4,5 and 6 to H20, as I hate retcon idea. So likely I’ll do the same here, to consider it Halloween 9… If possible ! In my headcanon, the Rob Zombie movies exist in the “real” Halloween movies continuity as “in universe bad movies”, they’re like Stab movies are in the Scream movies.

          • Flash

            Interesting theory but I’d rather forget the Rob Zombie movies all together. Also it can’t be part 9 as she died in part 8.

          • Nicolas Caiveau

            I know. But I’ll pretend she survived, we just saw her being stabbed and fall. People survived worse in real life so…

  • AmericaJumpedThe Shark

    Hope she takes it off. Love Letters and Trading Places are my favorites of hers, and it ain’t for the drama and comedy.

  • Jaysin Torres

    What if this is like a prequel/sequel? Talks about how she found out about Michael being her big loving brother and then fast forwards 40 years after Resurrection, where she actually survived being stabbed in the back and falling a few stories to her supposed death, faking her death again. Who knows where they’re going with this but I’ll sure as hell be there to watch it.

    Btw… the house looks more like the Doyle house where he first terrorized her.

  • Spencer Rutt

    always up for a “Halloween” themed horror movie.

  • Randy Moses

    First: JLC back? Squeeeeeee! 🙂

    I actually think it might be neat if they just skip HR, and make it a direct sequel to H20.
    That could work.

    • dukeblues

      Except H20 was horrible garbage and not worth the film it was shot on. So there is that

  • drew
  • RJ MacReady

    Wow. Didn’t expect this! I love H1-2/4-5 and thought H20 was a major letdown after bringing back JLC. It sounds like this a basically a do-over of H20, hopefully without the dumbass ‘comic-relief’ cast members.

    • Bob Marshall

      I don’t see how it sounds a do over of H20 when all we know is Jamie Lee is returning. We have zero plot details.

      • HarryIsAScam

        Read the articles. They’ve explained they erased 3 to new H2.

        • Bob Marshall

          No the articles are making assumptions based off McBride’s recent comments and that vague synopsis. Nothing’s been concretely confirmed yet!

          • HarryIsAScam

            Actually it has been.

    • dukeblues

      Thank you RJ for making sense. H20 was crap.

  • Roman

    once more…..THIS HalloweeN is the sequel to JC’s HalloweeN and HalloweeN II – 1981. the other movies, from H3-Resurrection….DO NOT EXIST.

    • King Jordyn

      obviously people cannot read, smh.

      • dukeblues

        Can’t fix that unfortunately

    • So what you are trying to say is they are different films? Well to me they are all pretty much the same, specially when they keep casting Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode. Well her being alive again now makes sense… I guess. And to the poster below, yes most of us can read, how would we know they’d make the other films non-canon, we’re not all big nerds ya know. (Not to mention the post above, went on and on and I just read quickly then skipped to the comment area, because that is where the party is really at). Now get back to your Star Trek, and stop with the mumbling.
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halloween:_Resurrection

  • What? But… she died in the last movie and that was several years ago. She was stabbed and thrown off a roof and apparently fell to her death.

    • Jesse Bickers

      Did you even read the article?

      • Yeah, a little – not all it kinda made me tired, so I skipped to the comment area. It was more the shock of the main character being alive after she clearly died in the last film “I” saw.

        • Flu-Like Symptoms

          I’m sure everyone involved in the franchise would like to pretend Resurrection never happened. And, along with a handful of other sequels, that’s exactly what they’re gonna do which is A-OK with me.

  • Vinnie Vincent’s Dead Dog

    This film will be trash. BUt expect people to see it in droves. Just don’t complain next time you’re mad about nothing original coming out of Hollywood. Because we did this to ourselves.

    • JackSkellington

      Shut the fuck up. If you don’t want to see it, don’t. Don’t try and force your cry-baby tantrum on others.

      • Flu-Like Symptoms

        Obviously he thinks RZ is still directing. Not so, Bud. This will actually be GOOD.

    • Khy

      Not really, because I’m not a moron who goes to see movies that do not interest me.

    • Matheus Martins

      LOL

      Tell me how can anything be ”original” nowdays? every single idea has already been thought about, been brought into books,novels,comics,video games, fan-fiction, bar discussions etc… nothing is original anymore.

      Just pick what makes you smile and be happy.

    • WondrousPoop

      Go donate to a soup kitchen.

  • Flu-Like Symptoms

    Best news all week. Now bring back Nick Castle as Myers and we’re golden.

    • Bob Marshall

      He’s not in great shape these days. I say just get someone else, the guy who played him in H20 was good.

      • Flu-Like Symptoms

        Just get him on the treadmill and he’ll be good to go. At first I thought to myself “well, he is kinda old now.” But, nothing he did in H1 would be a physical hindrance to do now. Stalk about, walk, stab, breathe… Flatten that belly a little and he’s got this.

        • dukeblues

          Nothing wrong with an older Myers. Wilber was awesome in 6. One of the best Myers actually. But the guy who played him in H20 was horrible. The movie was a joke too. Its best just to not copy H20 in any way imaginable.

          • Flu-Like Symptoms

            Agreed. I never cared for Durand as Myers. It reminded me too much of a slow-moving Ghostface, especially the scene where the two kids are trapped between the gate and a locked door and Michael is frantically swinging his knife like an excited kid about to score his first kill. Not a Myers trait, for sure. And that mask was god-awful. Not Durand’s fault obviously, but just adds to the overall goofy package we got with Myers looking like a raccoon in a glorified Scream film. When they revealed Michael was an impostor at the end, they should’ve meant the whole movie. I could never take that character serious as the real deal.

      • dukeblues

        The guy from H20 was horrible. Probably the worst MM

        • Jared Patrick

          Dick Warlock did a great job in H2, but he’s pretty old now lol I doubt he’d be able to do it.

          • Matty Ice 2016

            warlock was the second best. But Castle was so good that you could tell it was someone else. He was also much shorter

    • Matty Ice 2016

      Wouldn’t that be a hoot. He was by far the best.

      • Matty Ice 2016

        I’m sure he is like 500 pounds now though.

        • Flu-Like Symptoms

          I’ve hung out with him a couple times recently at conventions. He’s actually not that far out of shape. If he wanted to come back he would just need to hit the gym and get some good cardio in. I don’t think his preparation would be nearly as demanding as what Mark Hamill needed to get back into Skywalker shape.

          • Matty Ice 2016

            Then why the Heck not. This would make it very interesting

  • Adam Clifton

      Wondering if that charity may be seeing some of that money.

      • Adam Clifton

        It worries me that she’s in this one actually. JLC is all about killing off Michael for good and I doubt she’d appear for some random sequel where he gets back up at the end of it. Would they actually kill him off after we just got him back from Rob Zombie?

        • Master99

          No one else has ever tried harder to kill off Michael Myers than Rob Zombie did by making Halloween 2. If Halloween and Michael can survive that train wreck I wouldn’t worry about them getting killed off just cause JLC wants it.

  • sixfeetdownsouth

    That sucks.

    • Luca Vasto

      agree

  • Raul Calvo

    I was exited about this new film but now… It’s too much “history repeating”. Is the Halloween franchise going for the record of having more alternatives story lines than any other horror franchise?

    • They still got their work cut out to catch up with TCM. Give em’ time. 🙂

  • Mr. Screamer

    Amazing news!! 🙂
    Now hopefully if this Halloween is successful, then a final Scream film will be made, with Neve returning one last time to fight Ghostface.

    • James

      Only if we finally get to see Neve die like she should have in the last one.

      • Saturn

        Indeed, it would have been a massive (and wanted) upset in the franchise, which could then have continued with new characters….
        But, it seems they bottled it.

        I wonder if Williamson originally planned on offing her – and this is why someone else was got in for rewrites?

        • Jared Patrick

          Actually, in Williamson’s original draft for Scream 4, he had it end after the kitchen scene with Jill on the stretcher… Then a paramedic in the background says: “We Got a live one.” The next one was supposed to pick up with Sidney awakening from a coma and not remembering anything about that night… It would’ve been interesting to go that route, but I feel like it probably would’ve drug on too long.

          • Saturn

            Ah, interesting to know.

  • Gary Moore

    Michael Myers would be in his 60’s. Let’s say that Michael died in that hospital fire in H2. The big twist would be if Laurie’s son or long lost son that was put for adoption 30 years ago, returns one night for no reason whatsoever to kill his mother and anybody that stands in his way. That would be a haunting and shocking ending.

  • Matty Ice 2016

    Oh Dear. Although she looks kind of sexy in that picture, how can this work? I thought we were going to see something fresh. Sorry Jamie but your last couple appearances in these movies were part of the problem. Nice rack though for an old lady. Will it take place in a nursing home hospital?

    • SutterKane

      Her being in those movies wasn’t the problem. “H20” big problem was the softness of the film and it’s kid friendly tone, trying to piggy back off the success of Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer by leaving out anything even remotely scary.

      The one after that had Busta Rhymes Karate kicking Micheal out of a window,

      Jamie might be the only redeeming aspect of either one honestly.

      • Trav

        I haven’t watched these movies in awhile, but I thought H20 was considered to be one of the better ones in the franchise by a lot of fans. I could be wrong on that though.

        • Nicolas Caiveau

          I agree, H20 was to me the best sequel after H2.

          • Trav

            Which H2? The 1981 version or the Rob Zombie version? I ask because Rob Zombie’s version was referred to as “H2” on a lot of the posters. It’s fine if you like his version, but I remember not liking that movie.

          • William Futrell Jr.

            H2 was terrible as bad as I get

        • Budgiecat

          thats cause the others were so terrible they’re not even worth mentioning lol

          • Trav

            True, to a certain extent. Halloween 2 couldn’t live up to the original, but was a darn good sequel. I’ve never seen Season of the Witch, but I’ve heard a lot of people say that’s a pretty good movie that got unfairly hated. Halloween 4 I remember being a flawed but solid sequel. Halloween 5 is when the franchise really starts to go down hill. Halloween 6 is a mess, and I’ve only seen H20 once and it’s been so long, I’ve forgotten what I really thought about it. Resurrection might be the worst in the franchise. It’s been awhile, but I remember actually liking Rob Zombie’s 2007 remake. His 2009 version was a hot mess though.

          • Budgiecat

            both Rob Zombie movies arent worth mentioning. It shoulda been his own horror movie, not Halloween.

    • Budgiecat

      you just wanna lick tits

      • Matty Ice 2016

        Now that you mention it. I would!!! She is Jamie Lee Curtis Dammit! !

  • Adam Clifton

    JLC coming back makes me worried. I doubt she’d return for some random sequel where Michael gets back up at the end. JLC has made no secret of wanting to kill off Michael Myers for good. We just get him back from Rob Zombie’s clutches and they’re going to kill him off again?

    • WondrousPoop

      Why not? I’d rather have one more great, final film than an endless parade of meh sequels.

  • Evan3

    I think Collider pointed out… we’ve done this. Halloween H2O was almost the exact same thing. Carpenter’s onboard in a limited capacity! We are going back to basics! Jamie Lee Curtis is back! And it’ll be her last time! And we know what a shitstorm that turned out to be. Look, I’d love for them to hit this out of the park, but let’s not get too over-excited.

    • Michael Singer

      What you mean a good film, the best since Part II and the most critically well-received since the original. Yeah that makes more MORE optimistic, not less.

      • Evan3

        Halloween is the only movie in the franchise with a fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. So in that regard, ANY sequel should be viewed skeptically. Be optimistic all you want, but they’ve tried, tried, and tried again, and have yet to come up with anything even remotely approaching the October-y goodness of Carpenter’s classic.

  • Travis_Bickle

    I’d still bang JLC…any day of the week. She was amazing on Scream Queens.

  • Matty Ice 2016

    Quoting the great poet Dave Chappelle. “She got some big as ti%#es ” I hope she wears that outfit. And yes. I Would !!
